Time for more hindsight. Join Deb, Erika, and Katrina as we dip back and see if “Blink” is really all that or if our views have changed over the years.
Have you revisited this story recently? If so, what did you think, and how did that compare with how you felt about it in the first place? How do you feel about it as a Doctor Who intro story? And has that changed? Let us know in the comments!
This week Deb comes up with a cooperative way to friend-source game material for the podcast. Join her as she puts Erika, Katrina, and Lynne through a new edition of “Seven Minutes in Heaven/Hell” with topics by friend-of-the-show (and as we recorded, birthday-boy) Kyle Anderson! We’re calling this new targeted crowd-sourcing feature “We Get By with a Little Help from Our Friends”.
What do you have to say about these topics? Drop us a tweet or let us know in the comments!
Time for another bit of hindsight. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we discuss Deb’s modern Who pick to look back at, “The Rings of Akhaten”. Fandom really hates this one. And we (mostly) didn’t love it the first time around. Do we now? Have we grown souls (according to Liz)? Listen and see!
Have you revisited this story recently? If so, what did you think, and how did that compare with how you felt about it in the first place? And how do you think this story compares to “Vincent and the Doctor”? Let us know in the comments!
We strongly believe the events happening in the United States surrounding the death of George Floyd as well as the systematic racism and police brutality that killed him, call for soul searching and reflection. As a result, we’ve pulled this week’s episode of Verity! Instead we urge you listen to Black voices in Doctor Who, like Time and Relative Blackness in Space (#TARBIS) by Black Girls Create, Black voices in social media like Ava DuVernay and Kenidra Woods, and, most importantly, Black voices in your community.
Rather than listening to us, listen to them.
Never be cruel, never be cowardly… Remember – hate is always foolish…and love, is always wise. – The Doctor
This week we all just needed a quiet conversation about what is bringing us comfort and grounding us through the pandemic. We cover both Doctor Who and non-Doctor Who comforts. There’s rather a lot of talk about canning.
What is keeping you going through all this? Drop us a tweet or let us know in the comments!
This week we reflect on another story that wasn’t a hit right out of the gate. Join Deb, Katrina, Lizbeth, and Lynne as they discuss how they feel about “In the Forest of the Night” lo these several years on. We also get to hear Lynne’s pick for her “hindsight is 2020” episode to revisit.
