Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

Yes. That is really what this episode is called. Join Deb, Erika, and Lynne as we stumble over the title, and possibly stumble a bit over the episode itself–or at least, over this as a “finale”.

What did you think of “The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos” as a finale for this series? Or even just as an episode itself? Let us know in the comments!

This weird and froggy episode may not have landed perfectly for all of us, but we find a lot to say. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lizbeth as we dive through the looking glass and into Norway. There’s a lot to cover, but really, it’s all about the sandwich.

There may have a dearth of Verities this week, but the podcast must go on! Join Deb and Tansy as they break down “The Witchfinders”. There’s a wealth of good stuff to dig into: history, feminism, the Doctor dealing with history and feminism, and, of course, Alan Cumming’s acting.

It’s a very special episode of Verity! Why? Not just because today’s Doctor Who episode has an exclamation point just like we do — it’s also because we have three Verities in the same room to do a hot-take style review! Join Deb, Erika, and Katrina as we give our pretty much immediate reactions to this week’s episode.

Golly, another lovely-but-heavy episode of Doctor Who. Join Erika, Lizbeth, and Tansy as we dig into this historical-with-aliens. We talk about the history of history in the show, the use (or not) of religion, and much, much, much more! (We did miss having Deb to wrangle us and keep us on track.)

Spaceship! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as the rest of us try to talk Deb into liking this story more than she did on first viewing. We can all agree that Astos is pretty awesome and we look forward to more Yaz, but that might be it…

Arachnophobes beware! This ep was full of creepy-crawlies. Join Deb, Erika, Lizbeth, and  Lynne as we talk about our reactions to spiders, companion balance, visions of dead wives, and more.
