It’s a fantasy-casting Verity! Extra! Join Deb, Katrina, and Lynne as they let their imaginations run wild and try to pitch fantastical (or actually, historical) ideas for future Doctor Who episodes, complete with mismatched Doctors and companions, historical figures, guest cast members, and a healthy dose of wet Colin Firth.
This Extra! is lovingly dedicated to the Time Scoop Podcast, in which panelists compete in a fantasy draft choosing a Doctor, a companion, a monster or villain, a writer, and two wild card elements that best exemplify what they love about Who.

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!

As requested, the LEGO Verities took a break from the ballgame at Clutchers Field, and took a tour of the 12th Doctor’s TARDIS.
Look how excited we all are to go inside! (L to R: Lynne, Tansy, Deb, Erika, Liz, Katrina)
Of course, Liz makes a beeline for the 12th Doctor. He looks thrilled.
Deb takes the controls, naturally!
Tansy and Lynne assist at the console as Erika dives in to fix something technical.
Kat has a nice chat with her beloved Clara.
A great time was had by all!
