DRAMA There's something for everyone in The Husbands of River Song: a touch of romance, hulking robots with detachable heads, icky if softcore gore, fizzing chemistry from a classy double act (Peter Capaldi and Alex Kingston) - and Matt Lucas in a bobble hat...

Hoping to dodge Christmas, the Doctor lands on the snowy colony world Mendorax Dellora and soon bumps into River Song. For once, his old flame is not one step ahead; to his dismay, then amusement, she doesn't even recognise him. Armed with a sonic trowel, archaeologist River is more concerned with extracting a priceless diamond from her latest husband, the warrior King Hydroflax (Greg Davies).

As a screwball comedy this could be a shade sharper, but a rematch for Mr & Mrs Who is definitely in order.
