This week we cover story # #276, Peter Capaldi’s swan song, the brief introduction of Jodie Whittaker, and the 2017 Christmas special, Twice Upon a Time! The Doctor, refusing to regenerate, finds himself at the South Pole where he meets his first incarnation, also refusing to regenerate. When time freezes and a WWI soldier mysteriously appears, the Doctors must discover why -- and come to terms with their own ability to cheat mortality!
Question of the Week: What word(s) would you use to fill in the blank(s)? On the first day of Christmas, the Doctor gave to me ___. (If inclined, feel free to fill in the blanks for all 12 days of Christmas).

Join us next week as we begin Wanderers in the Fourth Dimension: The Wilderness Years, covering Doctor Who and related media from the show’s long hiatus from 1989 to 2005. We’ll begin with the UNIT movies Wartime, Downtime, and Daemos Rising! These are a bit tougher to find than the canon Doctor Who serials, but some of them have multi-region DVD releases. Our audio adventure will be The Sirens of Time, available from BigFinish.com.
