Any thoughts on "The Husbands of River Song" from the RPGFan crew?

Nat bad as far as Christmas episodes go (since most of those are pretty weird).  River is a cool character and her and Capaldi had chemistry right off the bat.  The ending was a bit sweet, but a nice ending to a pretty dramatic season.  I'm really loving Capaldi too <3

I tend to agree!  I loved this Christmas special.  It was the most "madcap fun" of the Capaldi era, and it was most welcome.  Even the cheesy lines had me giggling: "I'm going to need a bigger flowchart" tickled me a lot for no reason. I think it was just Capaldi's delivery of the line.  And of course, the "hello sweetie" moment.  So good.

Having Heaven Sent, Hell Bent, and now this all in a row was a treat.  They're like 3 of the 4 best Capaldi episodes.  Although, as much as I disagree, I DO kinda sorta understand why Lard, as a super hardcore fan, could be so ticked by Hell Bent.

Xmas ep was funny and '24 years' was a nice twist ending to the Doctor and River without feeling like bullshit.

So I finally caught up on the most recent season by watching the BluRays of it (and it was nice of to include the Husbands of River Song) over the weekend. Overall...I really don't know what my feelings on the season were. There was some really good stuff in there. I still love Missy completely. I loved the second to last episode. I don't think there were any episodes I particularly hated (although the last one is probably close), but I didn't really love a lot of them either. I guess I just thought it was an okay season?

What did you think of "Heaven Sent", "Hell Bent", and "The Husbands of River Song" all in a row like that?  3 of the 4 best Capaldi episodes all crammed together.

It was a really nice 3 weeks for this Whovian.

Now you just gotta see the latest Christmas special and you'll be caught up!

Was not really a fan of Hell Bent, and honestly I feel like the more I think about the episode the more problems I will have with it. I think for me it really just boils down to, I did not like the Capaldi/Clara dynamic. And the episode depends on that dynamic a lot.

Other two were great though.

Alright, then, how do we feel about Bill, plus Twelve minus Clara?
