192 – Verity Podcast and the Silurians

We’re beginning our 7&7 dive into season 7 — the 3rd Doctor’s first season! We already covered “Spearhead from Space” back in ep 116, so it’s time for some Silurians. Join Erika, Katrina, and Lizbeth as we talk about Jon Pertwee’s Doctor; Liz Shaw’s clothing; the relationships between the Doc, Liz, and the Brig; and the ethics of destroying a bunch of sleeping reptiles.

What are your thoughts on this story? And do you know where to find any clothing like Liz Shaw’s? Let us know in the comments!

191 – A Town Called Mercy Moseys

We’re back to series 7A! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we try to stay awake and chat about “A Town Called Mercy”. Are we tired because this story moves a bit slowly? No. But that didn’t help.

Extra! – Seven Villain Army

What better way to come down after Gallifrey One than plot how to take over planets/galaxies/universes/etc.? Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lizbeth as we strategize and scheme about which seven villainous/monstrous armies from Doctor Who would we each want to lead.

What about you? Let us know what armies you’d use to take over the world(s) in the comments!

Extra! – 5 Verities Makes a Gally

Sadly, this recording at Gallifrey One doesn’t feature all five of the Verities that were in attendance at the con; Lynne flew out earlier on Sunday, and Erika was felled by a nasty cold. Join Deb, Katrina, and Lizbeth as they exhaustedly chat about the delights of this year’s Gally, and there were many!

Did you attend Gally this year? Let us know your favourite things to see/do in the comments!

190 – Lucky 7: 42 Problems (& Martha Ain’t One)

Burn with us! Join Deb, Erika, Lizbeth, and Tansy as we burn through lots of feeling about Martha and lots of comparisons to “The Impossible Planet” and “The Satan Pit”. It’s a fast-paced, sweaty episode, and that’s just the way we (mostly) like it!

What are your thoughts on “42”? Let us know in the comments!

Extra! – 7 Favourite Costumes

On this week’s Extra, we bring you more 7s. Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we each talk about seven of our favourite costumes from all of the history of Doctor Who. Some of us found this exercise rather painful (only 7!?), but it was a delightful chat!

Can you pick out a mere seven of your favourite costumes? Let us know in the comments!
