Episode 49: Ranking the Santas

Ho, ho, ho!

For this year’s Christmas special, we’re ranking the greatest screen Saint Nicks of all time.

Our five are: Mel Smith (Father Christmas), Edmund Gwynne (Miracle on 34th Street), Richard Attenborough (Miracle on 34th Street), Tim Allen (The Santa Clause), and David Huddleston (Santa Claus: The Movie). But which order will we pick them?

Plus, plenty of other honourable mentions, and a brief history of Santa as we know him. See, it’s an educational show too!

Merry Christmas!

Episode 36: Ranking the Scrooges (Christmas Special)

Merry Christmas! For this year’s festive special, we’re looking back at some of the most memorable adaptations of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.

Tom and Morgan pick three Scrooges each, to decide which one is the very best (not including Scrooge McDuck or efforts by Henry Winkler or Kelsey Grammer, sorry boys).

The episode also features an exclusive interview with Muppet Christmas Carol star Meredith Braun, where Tom chatted with her about the film’s fan favourite song ‘When Love is Gone’ and how great Michael Caine was as Scrooge.
