Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

Archive for the ‘Episodes’ Category

Ep 170 – Warriors’ Gate Against Guns

Back in March, we were proud to participate in the Who Against Guns movement. We helped other Doctor Who podcasters raise over $20,000 to support gun control. In the course of that effort, several donors won rewards from the participating podcasts. Our winner, Dr. Thomas Rodebaugh, asked us to talk about one of his favorite DW stories, “Warriors’ Gate”. Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we dig into this incredibly juicy story.

Ep 169 – An Aggressively Scottish Match

It’s Lynne’s turn to select a classic and a modern Who story to be her perfect match, and she’s gone all Scots! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we chew over haggis, kilts, shape-shifters, werewolves, and lots and lots of mythology. That’s right, we’re talking about “The Terror of the Zygons” and “Tooth and Claw”!

Extra! – Dinosaurs on a Commentary

Remember back when we promised to do a couple commentaries as a thank you to our FABULOUS PATREON PATRONS? Well, trust us, we did. And better late than never? Here’s the first one! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lizbeth as we discuss “Dinosaurs on a Spaceship”: the dinosaurs, the spaceship, Amy-as-Doctor, pretty-people-bias, “comedy” robots, and so much Rupert Graves. Also, a serious anti-cookie agenda.

Are you a fan of this story? Or does it annoy you like it does at least one of the Verities? Let us know in the comments!
