The Three Who Drool assemble in The Whoseum for their annual Christmas gameshow podcast (which is Pertwee-themed this year), playing “Carnival of Monsters”, “The Feast of Stevens”, “Play Your Gel Guards Right” and “Who Said What”. Along the way, they present their most Christmassy Pertwee stories, open their Secret Santa gifts and stock up on mince pies in preparation for that seasonal pillar of the Diddly Dum Podcast, the “Gold Run” quiz looking back on our last 12 months of podcasting. Our “Gold Run” game screen can be seen above if you’d like to follow along.
