Oh my god, Matt Lucas is in the Doctor Who Christmas special, The Husbands Of River Song. If you don’t know Lucas, he is a comedian who starred in one of the funniest sketch shows ever, Little Britain and in the movie Bridesmaids. Now he’s going to be guest starring in Doctor Who!
Seriously, December 25th cannot come soon enough. Peter Capaldi just rocked my world with the Doctor Who two-part season finale Heaven Sent/Hell Bent and now I can’t wait for him to team up with Alex Kingston who will be returning and starring as River Song. Here’s the synopsis:
It’s Christmas Day on a remote human colony and the Doctor is hiding from carols and comedy antlers. But when the Time Lord’s help is requested he finds himself recruited into River Song’s squad and hurled into a fast and frantic chase across the galaxy! King Hydroflax (Greg Davies) is furious and his giant robot bodyguard is out-of-control and coming for them all! Will Nardole (Matt Lucas) survive? And when will River work out who the Doctor is?
All will be revealed on a starliner full of galactic super-villains and at a destination the Doctor has been avoiding for a very long time…
Take a look at some of images of the Christmas special:
Comedian and actor, Greg Davies, will also be guest starring as River Song’s husband? This should be interesting! If you’re not familiar with Davies, check out some of his stand up here:
