The Iris Wildthyme Appreciation Society by some bloke called Cavan Scott reunites Katy Manning and David Benson as Iris and Panda for the first time since Christmas special The Claws of Santa. Iris is on the run, and takes refuge on the planet Trull, where she becomes the most popular celebrity on the planet… just as it’s about to be destroyed.
In Iris Rides Out by Guy Adams, Iris’s faithful red bus is pulled through a tear in the fabric of reality, depositing our heroes at Mocata Grange, where famed ghost hunter Thomas Carnacki is investigating a haunting problem. When Iris is around, anything can go bump in the dark. Marcus Hutton guest stars as Carnacki.
Brutal murders, old flames and a WI jam tasting finish off the series in Midwinter Murders by George Mann, guest starring Stewart Bevan, who appeared alongside Katy Manning in Doctor Who: The Green Death.
