It’s Christmas Day on a remote human colony and the Doctor is hiding from Christmas Carols and Comedy Antlers. But when a crashed spaceship calls upon the Doctor for help, he finds himself recruited into River Song’s squad and hurled into a fast and frantic chase across the galaxy.
King Hydroflax is furious, and his giant Robot bodyguard is out-of-control and coming for them all! Will Nardole survive? And when will River Song work out who the Doctor is?
All will be revealed on a starliner full of galactic super-villains and a destination the Doctor has been avoiding for a very long time.

    Sounds fun – I’m looking forward to it. Any story line with River Song in it usually turns out extremely well.

      I was pretty gutted when River left, I am very glad to see her back. I hope Moffat has invented something solid so she can keep coming back once in a while.
