Friday’s Sitting Tennant (from Sister Chastity): Jackanory

Sister Chastity's Sitting Tennant

Have you been good? Then David will tuck you up and tell you a bedtime story.

Congratulations to Sister Chastity for providing this one, since she now leaps into the lead. On Monday, the very last Sitting Tennant before Advent Sitting Tennant begins. Will that be any different? Probably not, and you’ll have to provide your own chocolate, too.

What can I say? It’s low budget round here.

  1. Sister Chastity: 68.5
  2. Rullsenberg: 65.5
  3. Jaradel: 35.5

Despite being overtaken in picture land, Ms Rullsenberg won this week’s under-subscribed caption competition with an old-Who reference. Swings and roundabouts, hey?

Good luck this week everyone!
