The Husbands of River Song: Why We Would Rather Watch Stick Man
Charming, heartfelt, full of character and warmth... not a description that you could use for The Husbands of River Song, the 2015 #DoctorWho #Christmas special. Rather, it describes the Jennifer Saunders-narrated, Martin Freeman-voiced Christmas day animation from the creator of The Gruffalo.
Should Doctor Who, once the bastion of Christmas Day family viewing, be playing second fiddle to a 26 minute long animation, and losing so much of the audience from that same story?
Yes, it's another tale of audience figure woe in this week's podKast.
