purplecat: The Tardis (Doctor Who)
I really loved this episode. Having become somewhat jaded by the Christmas specials, particularly Moffat's procession of Victorian Christmas planets, I've found both this and Last Christmas refreshing changes.

I think The Husbands of River Song succeeds better than Hell Bent in presenting an accessible and fun bit of Doctor Who to a general audience, while containing plenty of catnip for fans of the show. We all loved it to bits, but I suspect we were precisely the audience at which it was most squarely aimed - i.e., three generations of a fannish family (albeit with varying degrees of fannishness for Doctor Who), all watching it together at the pleasantly squiffy part of Christmas day.
