Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

VerityEpisode52The Capaldi goodness just keeps on coming! Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we tackle what seems to be another divisive episode amongst Doctor Who fans, and the Verities are no different! Though we do disagree on parts of the story, we can all still come together on our love for Capaldi and Clara. And on our opinion that Deb may have a Moffat problem. (Sometimes an edit is just an edit–or IS it?)

VerityEpisode50-210Are you as happy as we are to have new Doctor Who *every week*? Because we’re pretty excited. Join Deb, Erika, and Lynne as we jump “Into the Dalek” and chat about this latest episode. Despite “Dalek fatigue”, we’re able to find plenty to squee about here–not the least of which is Peter Capaldi. We’re not all equally thrilled with the introduction of Danny Pink, but we are all interested in seeing where that particular story line goes. (We can’t say the same about the Missy plot/arc/red herring.)

What are your thoughts on this latest Dalek story? And what do you think of the new Doctor, now that he’s starting to settle into himself? Let us know in the comments!

Yes, I know that makes 4 cents.

Both Liz and Lynne have blogged about their thoughts on Deep Breath! They just didn’t do it here. Please be so kind as to continue on to their personal blogs to see what they had to say!

Liz: Everything I Loved About Deep Breath

Lynne: Thoughts on Deep Breath


VerityEpisode49-210It’s finally here! New episodes of Doctor Who are rolling out at long last. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we try to remember how to talk about new episodes of our favorite show. Who am I kidding, we not only talk about it, we talk about it a LOT. But hey, what did you expect? New series! New Doctor! We just couldn’t help ourselves! And surprise! We don’t agree! Who loves Clara’s reaction to the Doctor’s regeneration? Who doesn’t? Listen and see!

And let us know what you think about the new Doctor and his introductory story! We’re curious to see if our listeners are as divided as we are!

VerityExtraS8 Preview-210IT’S ALMOST HERE! Pardon the shouting, but we’re a bit excited. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we talk about what little we know of the upcoming Series 8. We also have a nice little discussion about out spoiler policy–and spoilers in general. Poor Erika does too much Verity! homework and learns more than she wants. Lynne experiences ratatouille and bitterness. Kat wants you to serve her fangirly whims. And Deb is apparently on a first-name basis with Steven Moffat.

What are you most excited about in series 8? Let us know (in a spoiler-free manner!) in the comments! And let us know your thoughts on spoilers too!
