In continuing with our year of firsts, we decided to check out Doctor Who‘s first ever spin-off! Join Deb, Erika, and Liz as we discuss the gem that is K-9 and Company. Sarah Jane in her “natural” habitat! The greatest aunt of all–Lavinia! stereotypical rural folks! A cult! And perhaps most importantly of all, a very concerned goat.
Have you seen this jewel of a Christmas special? Please tell us what you thought in the comments!
It’s an extra-special Verity! Extra! for you all today. Join Deb and Tansy as they do a quick intro for a live panel Tansy did at Conflux 12 in Canberra! With special Australian honorary guest-Verities Tehani Croft and Kate Orman!
Hooray for more live Verity! — all over the world!
As the title might imply, there’s once again dissension among the ranks. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we discuss whether “The Sensorites” is long and slow and boring or one of the most gripping, interesting, thought-provoking, and best William Hartnell-era stories ever committed to video.
Have you seen this story? Do you fall on the side of received fan wisdom? Or do you hasten to push play on the next episode every time you watch this fascinating story?
We had so much fun last week subjecting the Verities to twisty questions and dodgy trivia we’re doing it again!
Join Deb, and week one champion Erika, as we put Liz, Kat, and Tansy through their paces with hilarious results. Who will reign supreme? Who will complain the most about New Who questions? And can Erika hang on to her title of the “The Trivia Lord”?
We really enjoy our game-based Extras, so it’s time for a new one! Join Deb, Erika, and Lynne as we showcase the gaps in our Who knowledge by playing Doctor Who Trivial Pursuit! It’s harder than you might think. Well, it’s harder than we thought it would be.
Have you played this? Did you decide to disqualify questions like we did? Let us know in the comments!
It’s another old-school first! This time, it’s the first episode directed by Fiona Cumming (though not her first association with Doctor Who), as well as the first Fifth Doctor episode. There’s A Lot of fun to be had. And yes, sometimes there’s a quote so good you just have to give up on shoehorning the DW ep title into the podcast ep title.
What do you think about “Castrovalva”? Do you love the script and direction and acting and everything else all the time? Or did you get bored with the tromping through the forest? Let us know in the comments!
