Episode 276: Twice Upon a Time

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).
