  1. Tom Baker Whoven scarves? What an intro. Whovens unite! Damn, what a great show.

  2. Thank you again, Mark. i mention the scarf only because once, a while and a half ago, I had one. Best scarf ever. I barely needed a jacket, just my scarf some gloves, a pipe and my youth and I walked manfully into the winds of winter.

  3. RATS! I did not know about this or I would have mentioned it on this week’s show (the which is very good, by the way and should be listened to in the dark by the whole family snuggled together and sipping cider).

    Okay. Calm down. TALES TO TERRIFY is up for Best Horror Podcast of 2012 by the British “This Is Horror” Awards. This is a vox populi sort of thing so YOU may cast your ballots for us at the site below.

    Please do. All you do is…well they explain it and I figured it out so I’m certain you can too.

  4. Great job by Ritchie Smith, and thanks for the mention.

  5. And what is the violin music used in “Stories Like Pearls?”

  6. Steve, it’s called “Gloomy Winter” and is by Bonnie Rideout. The album has it and Sheena Wellington’s “Christ Child’s Lullaby” and is called, “A Celtic Christmas Sojourn.”

    Amazon has it here: http://www.amazon.com/Christmas-Celtic-Sojourn-Various-Artists/dp/B00005PJBV/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1356286540&sr=8-1&keywords=a+celtic+christmas+sojourn

    It’s also available on iTunes.

  7. Thanks to life, illness, and more life, I finally managed to listen to the entire episode today. Well worth the effort.

    Larry, the intro and outro were very well done, a nice change from the usual creepiness. Not that there is anything wrong with creepiness, but the change was both poignant and supported the stories. The music choices did as well, “Christ Child’s Lullaby” in particular.

    I think “Smee” was my favorite of the three, though “Stories Like Pearls” is a close second. I appreciated the classic holiday ghost story take on the episode, and how the holidays were integral to the story and not merely a convinient trope. “Number 90″ did give me a moment’s pause with the dinner scene. Excellent detail.
