Extra! – In Defence Of (Non-US-Version)

More fun and games? Yes please! Join Erika (and her brand new bell) as she makes Liz and Tansy defend many things–some easy, some atrociously difficult!

How do you think the defences went? And what tactics would you use? (And do you have anything you’d like to hear defended in the future?) Let us know in the comments!

Extra! – Alternative Whoniverse

It’s game time again! Join Deb as she leads Erika, Liz, and Lynne through yet another delightful Doctor Who-based game. This one involves re-casting beloved episodes and was co-developed by friend-of-the-show, Erik Stadnik. If you appreciate it (or excellent writing or just fellow fans), please consider checking out Erik’s “Weekly Prague Blog” Patreon.

Did you like this one? Do you feel we choose poorly? Let us know in the comments!

Episode 148 – The Master, Revisited

Yes, we did already talk about the Master, but now that Missy is here, it’s a whole new conversation! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we talk about the vast and interesting history of this character and their interactions with the Doctor.

Who’s your favorite Master? Why? And what do you think has been most consistent/most off-the-rails about them? Let us know in the comments!

Extra! – Generous Jemma

We’ve pulled another delightful interview out of the vault! Deb had the pleasure of speaking with Jemma Redgrave at LI Who in 2016. Join Deb and Erika as we chat about the con and then listen as Deb talks to Jemma about how badly she wanted a part on Doctor Who, how she made her children watch the classic series, having a family of actors, and of course, lots about Kate Stewart! (And more!)

Extra! – This or That

This game may not be called You Monster, You, but boy did it end up making us feel like monsters! Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we make DIFFICULT and TERRIBLE choices that YOU made us pick between. Seriously, I have words for some of you…

Huge thanks to Sage and Kim of Head Over Feels! We blatantly and unashamedly stole borrowed “This or That” from them after their lolarious on-stage version with Paul McGann at LI Who. We appreciate the inspiration, lovely ladies!

As Deb said, there will be more ToT in the future, so feel free to fill this comment thread with suggestions for future editions. Or just yell at us (nicely) for the PAINFUL choices we made.

I’d like to close by apologizing to the 7th Verity, Marie Cat.

Episode 147 – Survival Kit(ling)

Our year of loves and lasts continues with a rather big “last”. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we discuss 1989’s “Survival”, which was a “last” in many ways, although it wasn’t originally intended as such.

How do you feel about 7’s last full story? What did you think of the Cheetah People’s costumes? Is that infamous line really the nadir of Sylvester McCoy’s performances on Doctor Who? Let us know in the comments!
