Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

We close off our last mini-arc of 2018 with a wrap-up discussion of kicky-stabby ladies in Doctor Who. Join Deb, Liz, and Tansy as they talk about this history of the more aggressive ladies of Who.

Our final mini-arc continues with Ace, who bashes and ‘splodes her way though “Remembrance of the Daleks”. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lizbeth as we talk about Ace and her baseball bat and the Nitro-9 she’s not carrying.

What do you think of Ace, both in this story and generally? Let us know in the comments!

She may be more “shooty-‘splodey” than kicky stabby here, but River Song is the next focus of our mini arc. Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we talk about “Let’s Kill Hitler” and River (aka Melody, aka Mels) overall.

How do you feel about River in this story? In general? Let us know in the comments!

This week we launch the final mini-arc in our Year of Women: Kicky-Stabby women! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we launch things in style — Sevateem style! That’s right, Leela is our first kicky-stabby heroine (in her first story, “The Face of Evil”), and we’re thrilled to have a chance to talk about her, as it’s something we haven’t done much at all on Verity!

What do you think of Leela? Of this story? Of this idea for a mini-arc? Let us know in the comments!

Popular demand brings us another quiz! Join Liz as she quizzes Deb, Katrina, Lynne, and Tansy. The rules may be slightly less dubious this time. Maybe.

It’s Deb’s turn in the Hot Seat! Join Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we grill her about all kinds of Doctor Who and non-Who stuff! From formative music to Check, Please!

It’s time for another “perfect match”! Join Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we dig into Kat’s excellent choices: “The Five Doctors” and “The Day of the Doctor”. That pairing seems so obvious now that Kat pointed it out! We delve into the function of anniversary specials and multi-Doctor stories and take a look at how they work both then and now.

What do you think about these two stories? Any echoes we didn’t have time to mention that you want to make sure get some love? Tell us in the comments!
