Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

Archive for the ‘Extra!’ Category

Extra! – Generous Jemma

We’ve pulled another delightful interview out of the vault! Deb had the pleasure of speaking with Jemma Redgrave at LI Who in 2016. Join Deb and Erika as we chat about the con and then listen as Deb talks to Jemma about how badly she wanted a part on Doctor Who, how she made her children watch the classic series, having a family of actors, and of course, lots about Kate Stewart! (And more!)

Extra! – This or That

This game may not be called You Monster, You, but boy did it end up making us feel like monsters! Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we make DIFFICULT and TERRIBLE choices that YOU made us pick between. Seriously, I have words for some of you…

Huge thanks to Sage and Kim of Head Over Feels! We blatantly and unashamedly stole borrowed “This or That” from them after their lolarious on-stage version with Paul McGann at LI Who. We appreciate the inspiration, lovely ladies!

As Deb said, there will be more ToT in the future, so feel free to fill this comment thread with suggestions for future editions. Or just yell at us (nicely) for the PAINFUL choices we made.

I’d like to close by apologizing to the 7th Verity, Marie Cat.

Extra! – You Monster, You!

It’s a new game show! Deb and her devious friends developed this doozy of a dilemma-based debacle. Join Deb as she torments Liz and Lynne with truly monstrous decisions. It’s a delight!

So are you a monster? Why or why not? Let us know in the comments!

Extra! – There’s Nothing “Only” About Being a Doctor + Our Gap Months

It’s official! We have a new Doctor! And she’s a SHE. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we dive into our reactions to this truly momentous news. There were many tears, though not for all the same reasons.

But we won’t see Jodie Whittaker in the role for months. And then after that, it’ll be a lotta months before we get the next series. In our second timey-wimey segment we talk about what we’re gonna do to fill those lonely, Who-less months. “Shadow cabinet of spreadsheets,” anyone?

How do you feel about Whittaker’s impending Doctorhood? And what will you be doing while we wait for the new Doctor and new series? Let us know in the comments!

Extra! – AVAA (Ask Verity! Anything, Again!)

It’s a life-induced Emergency Extra!, complete with help from you, the listener! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we answer listener questions! We talk about missing episodes, ones we wish were missing, podcasts, and non-DW obsessions. It’s great fun!

Do you have questions you’d like us to throw into the mix for next time we do this? Leave a comment or tweet them at us with the hashtag #AskVerity!

Extra! – Doctor Who Noveltunes

Did someone order a silly Extra!? Because we’ve certainly got one for you! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Liz as we talk about Doctor Who novelty music. Some of it is fun, some is painful. You be the judge of which is which.

Which are your most and least favorite DW novelty songs? Did we miss any? (Note: We tried to mostly stick to novelty songs and avoid Trock.) Let us know what you think in the comments!

Extra-special thanks to Steven Schapansky of Castria for doing a bang-up job of editing this special, musical Extra!
