Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

Archive for the ‘Episodes’ Category

Ep 155 – Dark Waters of Mars

The first mini-arc of our Year of Women focuses on competent women, and Adelaide Brooke totally fits the bill! Join Deb, Katrina, and Lynne as they talk about Adelaide, her personality, her mission, her decisions, and much more. They also discover a possible tag-line for this year of podcasting: “It’s a whole different story when you change the POV.” Boy howdy.

What do you think about Ms. Brooke? Let us know in the comments!

Happy 2018, everyone! Have we got a theme for you! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we chat about our “year of women” and just what that means to each of us. Whether it’s busting the execrable “strong female character” trope wide open or honouring our first (canonically televised) woman Doctor, we’re ready for a year of mini-arcs, matching, and merriment!

Extra! – Love & Monstrous Commentary

Ok so the commentary itself isn’t monstrous. Nor is the episode. The amount of whiskey consumed while commentating…? Join Deb and Erika as they do a live-from-Deb’s-couch, in-person commentary! (recorded in November, 2017, during Erika’s epic US vacation-adventure)

Episode 154 – Twice upon a Time of the Doctors

Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and season’s greetings to all! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we discuss the latest Doctor Who Christmas special–yet another regeneration episode. Who cried? Who didn’t? Who’s not ready to think about the 13th Doctor? Who wants to crash right into the new era? And what did we all think about the themes and execution of “Twice upon a Time”? There’s only one way t find out!

What did you think of this final send-off for so many of the on- and off-screen talent? Let us know in the comments!

Extra! – Less-Random Trivia

One last game for 2017! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we once again compete to see who is the most trivial Verity of them all. Yep–it’s back to Doctor Who Trivial Pursuit! And this time Deb has an idea to make it a little less random and a little more fun!

Extra! – Who Complete Me

It’s game-time once again, but this time Erika is in charge! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we discover what the googling public wants to know about Doctor Who. Who followed in Lynne’s winning footsteps? Who was totally in whose head? Who tipped over a chair? Listen and see!

Huge thanks once again to Steve Lutz and Low Definition for inspiring this game!

Episode 153 – Taran Woodbeast Defense Council

I know Deb says this is episode 154 on the podcast, but it turns out it’s actually ep 153! (Totally my fault for providing bad information.) Anyway, join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Liz as we discuss a Doctor Who story Liz loves, “The Androids of Tara”. Deb had never seen it before. Did she like it? Listen and see!

What do you think of this installment of The Key to Time? Let us know in the comments!

This episode is dedicated to our unofficial “seventh Verity“, Marie Cat. 2004-2017
