Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

This game may not be called You Monster, You, but boy did it end up making us feel like monsters! Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we make DIFFICULT and TERRIBLE choices that YOU made us pick between. Seriously, I have words for some of you…

Huge thanks to Sage and Kim of Head Over Feels! We blatantly and unashamedly stole borrowed “This or That” from them after their lolarious on-stage version with Paul McGann at LI Who. We appreciate the inspiration, lovely ladies!

As Deb said, there will be more ToT in the future, so feel free to fill this comment thread with suggestions for future editions. Or just yell at us (nicely) for the PAINFUL choices we made.

I’d like to close by apologizing to the 7th Verity, Marie Cat.

Our year of loves and lasts continues with a rather big “last”. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we discuss 1989’s “Survival”, which was a “last” in many ways, although it wasn’t originally intended as such.

How do you feel about 7’s last full story? What did you think of the Cheetah People’s costumes? Is that infamous line really the nadir of Sylvester McCoy’s performances on Doctor Who? Let us know in the comments!

It’s a new game show! Deb and her devious friends developed this doozy of a dilemma-based debacle. Join Deb as she torments Liz and Lynne with truly monstrous decisions. It’s a delight!

So are you a monster? Why or why not? Let us know in the comments!

Now that series 10 is over, our year of loves and lasts continues with a love. A lot of love. Two episodes of love, in fact! Join Deb, Erika, and Tansy as we dip back into series 2 with a two-parter that Deb just loves: “The Impossible Planet” and “The Satan Pit”.

Do you love these eps like we do? Do you find the same bits a tad uncomfortable? Other bits? No bits? Let us know in the comments!

It’s official! We have a new Doctor! And she’s a SHE. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we dive into our reactions to this truly momentous news. There were many tears, though not for all the same reasons.

But we won’t see Jodie Whittaker in the role for months. And then after that, it’ll be a lotta months before we get the next series. In our second timey-wimey segment we talk about what we’re gonna do to fill those lonely, Who-less months. “Shadow cabinet of spreadsheets,” anyone?

How do you feel about Whittaker’s impending Doctorhood? And what will you be doing while we wait for the new Doctor and new series? Let us know in the comments!

It’s time to wrap up series 10. Le sigh. Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we talk about character arcs, friendships, favorites, least favorites, and lots and lots more about the finale.

That’s it. Series 10 is over. None of us are happy to see it go, but many of us are happy about how it went. Join Erika, Katrina, Lynne, and Tansy as we hash over this finale and discuss what we might see (and what we want to see) at Christmas.

How do you think the Doctor fell? Let us know in the comments!
