THE WEDDING OF RIVER SONG
SteeMo is back to pen the finale that seems to feature some familiar faces in unfamiliar roles (watch a video report HERE, spoilers!). It stars Mark Gatiss, Simon Callow (Charles Dickens in The Unquiet Dead), Simon Fisher-Becker (Dorium Maldovar) and Ian McNeice (Winston Churchill) and includes the lines, "I don't want to marry you," and "I don't want to murder you."

From the Radio Times preview:
"We have Minis suspended by air balloons, pterodactyls attacking school kids, a train emerging Magritte-like from London’s Gherkin building and Charles Dickens (Simon Callow) discussing A Christmas Carol with Bill Turnbull and Sian Williams on BBC Breakfast. Add to that Winston Churchill hailed as Caesar in present-day London and the Doctor shambling about like a bearded apostle. And all this in the first few minutes. "

The episode features The Doctor playing a game of "Live Chess" in front of an audience whilst he also comes face to face with a Dalek. It has a running time of just over 45minutes. Curiously, the episode of Doctor Who Confidential that accompanies this episode is titled, When Time Froze.
