2015 Doctor Who Christmas episode: “The Husbands of River Song”

by on Nov.30, 2015, under Television

The title of this year’s Christmas Special will be “The Husbands of River Song”…yes, plural…not sure what that’s going to mean, unless it is a reference to the Doctor’s various incarnations…

And if you look at the official image released today, there are two things I’ve noticed – one, the Doctor is holding a sonic screwdriver again! And two – it looks like he’s going to be battling Baymax from Big Hero 6… 🙂

As for the plot, at first I thought this was a joke – but this IS the Christmas episode, after all:

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, Man Down) is furious and his giant robot bodyguard is out-of-control and coming for them all! Will Nardole (Matt Lucas, Shooting Stars) 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…

Supergirl gets backend order – extended to 20 episodes

by on Nov.30, 2015, under Television

CBS has found the hero they needed – Supergirl, which has been going strong since it’s debut (it has averaged over 11 million viewers each week), received an additional order for seven episodes to a full 20-episode season.

There is some speculation that it didn’t get a “Back 9” order to bring it up to a “standard” 22-episode season, but Supergirl also got a late start compared to most series this season, so it is likely just in line with co-terminating with other series before the summer hiatus.

Peter Jackson might finally direct Doctor Who

At least he has a contract in hand, at least…but it seems neither the Doctor or the Daleks can interrupt him long enough to sign it, especially if The Walking Dead is on…

…but did you notice the book on the table, with the Post-It tabs marking pages? Hmmm…
