SCHEDULING NOTE: We won’t be dropping a Verity! ep on New Year’s Day because Doctor Who is dropping that day! In order to get a quorum together to talk about it, our ep (like all the series 10 Verity! eps) will drop over the weekend.
There may not be Doctor Who on Christmas Day, but we’re bringing on the Christmas cheer with this special, super-sized “7 Faves” episode. Join ALL of the Verities: Deb, Erika, Katrina, Lizbeth, Lynne, and Tansy as we do a rapid round of Seven Holiday Favorites. There are the usual suspects drawn from modern Who‘s rich tradition of Christmas specials, plus we veer off-piste and draw on Big Finish stories, classic Who canon (that may or may not have the most slight, tenuous grasp to anything remotely holiday-related) Doctor Who spinoffs, and short stories. It’s a mixed bag of holiday(ish) goodness.
What are your favorite Doctor Who holiday stories? Leave us a comment or drop us a tweet and let us know. And don’t forget to enter for a chance to win one of seven Big Finish Audio downloads during our 7th Anniversary Giveaway!

Really looking forward to listening to this episode! My own favourite Doctor Who Christmas story is A Christmas Carol.
1. A Christmas Carol
2. The Snowmen
3. Last Christmas
4. The Planet That Came For Christmas (Doctor Puppet)
5. The Chimes Of Midnight (Big Finish)
6. The Time Of The Doctor
7. The Unquiet Dead
Happy Christmas to all the Verities and thank you for all your hard work over the last year in putting out such a great podcast!
I loved listening to all your favorites, thank you! I have a few Big Finish that I got from Humble Bumble (thank you son!) but have to list listen and re-listen to them. I generally get audiobooks from my library, and wanted to mention one I listened to years ago- “Doctor Who: Twelve Doctors of Christmas”. Short stories of each of the 12 Doctors, think I will start re-listening to it as a tradition.
Happy Holidays to you all! And thanks again for all you do for all of us!
My favorite Christmas episode is Blink.
Because it has angels in it…
Love listening to you all. (I’m in rural ND and have to drive everywhere – you are my traveling companions) I found Chimes of Midnight on Internet Archive (for free). Listened and really enjoyed.
