Big Finish is delighted to today reveal the cover artwork, story details and trailer for the forthcoming festive Sixth Doctor special, Blood on Santa’s Claw and Other Stories.

The four stories in this compendium of Christmas crackers are as follows:

Blood on Santa’s Claw by Alan Terigo

The Doctor and Peri land on the planet Naxios, where they discover the body of Father Christmas. Who killed him? The strange individuals dressed in Shakespearian costume or the talking animals wearing waistcoats digging in the tunnels?

The Baby Awakes by Susan Dennom

The Doctor and Peri visit the Ishtar institute, where the term ‘Designer Babies’ takes on a new and sinister meaning. Will our heroes survive Christmas day?

I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day by Andrew Lias

A Christmas party that’s been going on for three years. Strange silver robots who guard the Christmas decorations with lethal force. What is the secret behind the festivities on Tate Galactic?

Brightly Shone The Moon That Night by Nev Fountain

The TARDIS crew encounters a shameful secret of the Time Lords. History has been rewritten, and this time it’s all the Doctor’s fault.

You can now pre-order Doctor Who: Blood on Santa’s Claw as a collector’s edition CD or download at the Big Finish website from £12.99. It’s all your Christmases come at once!

      BF Facebook said this release was “Fountain-penned”. Loving the false names though, Sue Dennom, A Lias and Al Terigo

      I wonder who the body is with the new waistcoat as it’s obviously Colin’s head on a new photo.
