In a break from the usual format, we bring you the first of three 'pod-boxes' of seasonal delights, complete with festive music from Big Finish's musical genius Jamie Robertson.

There are some snippets of unmissable news and some brand new trailers, but mostly it's all about the interviews and the nostalgia this week. Well, it's that time of year, isn't it?

Rufus Hound - we present the second part of this fascinating interview with the actor/comedian/writer who has come to Big Finish to play the latest incarnation of the Meddling Monk. Be warned, he has forthright views. Never less than fascinating, though.

Frank Skinner and Ben Miles - the stars of our new series, Callan, based on the 1967 classic ITV spy thriller. A few moments after completing the studio sessions, Frank (who plays Lonely), Ben (who plays the titular Callan) and Nick Briggs (who plays Hunter, head of The Section) sit down for a chat.

Drama tease - We present the first fifteen minutes of one of our proudest achievements, The Chimes of Midnight by the multi-award-winning Robert Shearman (starring Paul McGann and India Fisher) as a special Christmas treat, just to get you into the festive mood.

Recorded on: 17/12/17
Recorded at: Nick and Benji's

Nick and Benji have been presenting the Big Finish Podcast together now for over a year. The podcast itself has been around for a number of years, with a number of presenters, but Nick seems to have stuck with it the longest, mainly because he's been with Big Finish since the very beginning, back in 1998.

Benji's addition to the team has brought with it an extra injection of showmanship and - dare we say it? - madcap humour. As well as Nick and Benji's shared love of the classic Doctor Who story Death to the Daleks, many other strange topics of conversation have bubbled up to the surface across the months.

Benji's musicianship is very much in evidence, with guest appearances of the kazoo and jaw harp being something of a regular feature. More recently, there's been a kalimba, a harmonica and some cow bells provided by Nick.

From time to time, listeners send in some really great images to the podcast, and you can find some of them below...

If you haven't yet heard the Big Finish Podcast, here are some of the other themes and conversations you can look forward to... Field Marshal Montgomery, the 'Singing Man' from the 1950s, catchphrases like 'Stop Don't Move!', 'Buck up!' and 'Don't tell my trousers!' and much, much more... (frighteningly more)

There are, of course, lashings of behind-the-scenes and upcoming news items, as well as fullsome comments by our loyal listeners, via the Listeners' Emails address
