Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

Another LI Who is in the books! Join Deb and Erika from the car on I-95(!) as we talk about the weekend that was, suggest tips for good panel moderation, discuss the 13th Doctor’s new costume, squee over the news that Steven Moffat will be at Gallifrey One(!), and almost get killed by a careless driver (not Deb).

Were you at LI Who? Or do you have some ideas on how to make sure all panelists get their chance to speak? Let us know in the comments!

It’s game time again! Well, less a game and more just “having opinions in a structured manner”. Join Deb, Erika, and Liz as we have opinions all over the place! And big thanks to Kim and Sage from Head over Feels who inspired this delightful pastime!

It’s time once again for something we love! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we discuss a story Erika loves, “Nightmare of Eden”. From sets to costumes to performances to ideas, this colourful procedural pushes many of Erika’s happy-buttons.

Are you a fan of this story? If so, why? If not, why not? Let us know in the comments!

It’s time to slow down and get a bit reflective. Inspired by Peter Capaldi’s “farewell tour” at New York Comic Con, Deb, Lynne, and Tansy take a thoughtful look back at Peter Capaldi’s tenure. We discuss the impact he’s had on the show, his legacy and examine his character arc as the 12th Doctor. Sure, we know he has one more story before the serious postmortem’s begin, but we’d rather do this while we can still smile!

What do you think Peter has brought to the role and, more importantly, what do you think his imprint will be on the show? Leave us a comment and let us know what you think!

It’s another game this week! A new one! This time we delve into the (entirely fictional) bowels of BBC history and learn the almost-could-have-been titles for some well-known Doctor Who stories. Hope you find this as delightful as we did! Special thanks to friend of the show Erik Stadnik for the assist in creating this game. Check out his sweet Patreon page!
