Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

Archive for the ‘Extra!’ Category

Extra! – Timelady Lalla

Before we start our next Year of Women mini-arc, we thought we’d cap off our Competent Women arc by sharing an interview with Lalla Ward. She played one of the most competent women in the history of Doctor Who, Romana! Join Deb and Erika as they briefly chat about the interview, which took place at LI Who in November, 2017, and then please enjoy the interview!

Extra! – Erika in the Hot Seat

We’ve got another new feature for you this year: “the hot seat”! Join Deb, Katrina, and Tansy, as they grill Erika about…well, about anything at all! It’s like a Verity-only version of Ask Verity Anything!

Extra! – Gallifrey (One) Stands

Another wildly successful Gallifrey One is in the books! From the silly to the sublime to the truly moving, it was a weekend to remember. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Liz as we reminisce about the amazing weekend that was.

Were you at Gally as well? Share your highlights and memories in the comments!

Extra! – More Unfortunate Episode Titles

You may have been expecting a Gallifrey One wrap-up episode, and you’ll get one, but not this week! The tail end of Gally was intense and emotional and busy and some of us needed a little space to process. Instead, you get something delightful and fun to tide you over. Hope you enjoy!

Remember when we played “Unfortunate Episode Titles” and Liz mocked poor Deb mercilessly? We sure do! That’s why this week Liz takes over the podcast and runs Deb, Erika, and Tansy through her very own gauntlet of episode titles!

Who will win? Listen and find out!

Extra! – 2018: The Year of Women

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!

What would you like from 2018? Let us know in the comments!

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)
