Extra! – 7 Fave Xmas(ish) Stories

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!
