It’s a sangria-fueled classic-Who-episode of Verity! Join Deb, Erika, and Katrina as we cover a pure historical, “The Aztecs”. As usual, we don’t all fall in line with received fan wisdom, but for a change, the majority of us do.
Are you a fan of “The Aztecs”? Or are you bored by the lack of sci-fi elements? Let us know in the comments!
It’s a book Extra! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as they discuss the very first Virgin New Adventures novel, Timewyrm: Genesys. It was the first time through for half of us, the other half of the Verities were revisiting it. While it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, and may have a seriously high “ick factor”, we’re all pleased with the existence of the whole novel range. And we spend a good amount of time chatting about that as well.
Are you a fan of the NAs? Have you revisited them and discovered issues you didn’t see the first time through? Or did you never get into them in the first place? Let us know in the comments! We’re intensely curious about this!
Our trip through classic season one is back to moving pictures! Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we cover Terry Nation’s eclectic 6-parter, “The Keys of Marinus”. There’s a lot to love and some to not-love. Listen and see who thinks which parts are which!
How do you feel about this story? Do you love its fairy-tale nature and the multiple adventures? Or do you think it drags? If the latter, which parts drag? We’re super-curious to know, so please tell us in the comments!
It’s a rare Verity! two-hander! Join Erika and Lynne as we chat about Doctor Who‘s first female director Paddy Russell, specifically, her final story “Horror of Fang Rock”. Turns out there are a number of reasons this story works as a “first”, so we’re still well within our annual theme. Totally. Really.
What do you think of “Fang Rock” and Paddy’s direction? Do you find it as atmospheric and moody and delightful as we do? Or do you think it’s a lot of talking in small rooms? Let us know in the comments!
It’s time for another silly Extra! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we defend the very-nearly-indefensible. We had some excellent topics left over from our live show at Gallifrey One, so we put them to good use!
Do you have some topics you’d like us to defend on a future In Defence Of? Let us know in the comments!
ETA: The poll! I almost forgot to include this. But it’s totally not because I’m afraid I’ll lose. Absolutely not…
