The festive season is firmly upon us. Big Finish have chosen a suitably festive listeners title for December. Iris Wildthyme and the Claws of Santa is available to download now from the Big Finish website for the bargain price of £2.99 throughout December.
Iris Wildthyme is a series about an eccentric adventurer and her companion Panda (David Benson) in their time-travelling London double-decker bus! Katy Manning stars as the fabulous Iris Wildthyme, a departure from the character of Jo Grant who starred in Doctor Who opposite Third Doctor Jon Pertwee. Iris Wildthyme will also feature later this month in the Doctor Who Main Range release, Muse of Fire. This adventure will feature the Seventh Doctor, Ace, Hex, Iris and Panda in a story set in Paris of the 1920’s.
To celebrate this new appearance in Muse of Fire Big Finish have chosen Iris Wildthyme and the Claws of Santa as the listeners title for December. Written by Cavan Scott and Mark Wright, this title is the perfect story to enjoy this Christmas. Throughout December Iris Wildthyme and the Claws of Santa is available for the bargain price of only £2.99. The Big Finish App, available on Apple and Android devices, also makes listening even easier. Sadly the title is now out of stock on CD.
It’s going to be a blue Christmas for Iris Wildthyme. Her best friend, Panda, is lost in time and space and the only festive cheer she can find is at the bottom of a glass. If that wasn’t enough, this year’s number one toy is trying to kill her!
From a futuristic planet-sized shopping mall to the frozen wastes of the North Pole, the search for Panda leads Iris to a fiendish plot that threatens to ruin Christmas for the entire multiverse. With only a jobsworth security droid to help, Iris turns to the one man who can save the season of goodwill – Saint Nick himself. There’s just one snag; Santa Claus is a broken man…
With psychotic elves, exploding shoplifters and more tinsel than you can shake a bottle of Babycham at, this is going to be the Mother of all Christmases – and you’re all invited!
