Here are the synopses:
By Philip Bates.
The Time War is playing out in the skies over Everest.
Forget the Northern Lights: this is the main event and climbers from across the globe are heading to see this phenomenon. Above the clouds, Daleks and Time Lords are dying over and over again. The Jaws of the Nightmare Child engulf the atmosphere – right on schedule, every night.
The Twelfth Doctor is here to investigate. And make sure he’s not included in the 4% of climbers who die on the mountain.
The Unravelling Incident of the Beach of Cantellios 12
By David Wall.
The Eighth Doctor has lost his memory. Waking up on a beach with a frozen sea, he tries to piece together the events that led him there – a quest that puts him on the trail of an unfolding scarf. Just what are the mysterious Hexaar, and why have they stolen his thoughts?
Can You Wear Me?
By Alex Skerratt.
Legend has it, the fabric museum on Saurian has the biggest collection of clothes this side of the Cotton Cluster. But tourism can be a deadly pastime, as the Thirteenth Doctor and Graham soon discover. As it turns out, not everyone is a fan of casual knitwear, and the donning of a scarf can cost you your life…
The Man With Seven Half-Scarves
By Philip Bates.
The Doctor has been protecting Trenzalore for 200 years now and it’s about time he gave himself a Christmas present. He never forgets a face, or indeed an outfit so decides to knit himself a fetching scarf. He’s halfway through when it’s stolen.
The Doctor has been protecting Trenzalore for 206 years now and it’s about time he gave himself a Christmas present. So he tries to knit that scarf again. He’s halfway when it’s stolen.
The Doctor has been protecting Trenzalore for 209 years now and it’s about time he gave himself a Christmas present. So he tries to knit that scarf again. Once more, it’s stolen.
Who keeps stealing his scarves? Why does each theft leave an abundance of artron energy? And why are the children of Christmas all experiencing nightmares about the prophecies of Nostradamus?
