This mini-arc may have curved all the way off the rails, but we don’t care. Ace is the embodiment of this very idea, and “The Greatest Show in the Galaxy” gives us plenty to talk about. Including, of course, a significant tangent about the history of clowns in popular media. Because why not?
What do you think about Ace’s companion-collecting habits? And do you think she and Mags would have made a good TARDIS team? Let us know in the comments!
Mini-arc #3, companions collecting women companions, starts with the realization that new-Who doesn’t have many great examples of this. Join Deb, Liz, and Lynne as they discuss why that might be and how it works (or doesn’t) in the case of “Mummy on the Orient Express”. Poor Erika, who is absent, takes some serious guff.
What do you think about companions’ companions in the modern era? Are they sparse because of lack of screen time? Is it simply a different type of storytelling? Or something else? Let us know in the comments!
Hello to all fans of Verity! games! We’ve got another one for you. Liz has wrested control of the podcast from Deb once again, and it’s every bit as delightful as you’d expect! Join Deb, Erika, and Lynne as we try to answer Liz’s nefarious questions about the “history” of Doctor Who, or its fandom, anyway.
Would you have beaten our winner? Let us know in the comments!
Our celebration of David Fisher-penned female villains continues. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Liz as we chat about Lady Adrasta and her cohort Karela. Things get a little bit Snow White and the wicked queen as far as we can tell.
What do you think of this story and these villains? Let us know in the comments!
