Extra! – 7 Fave Xmas(ish) Stories

SCHEDULING NOTE: We won’t be dropping a Verity! ep on New Year’s Day because Doctor Who is dropping that day! In order to get a quorum together to talk about it, our ep (like all the series 10 Verity! eps) will drop over the weekend.

There may not be Doctor Who on Christmas Day, but we’re bringing on the Christmas cheer with this special, super-sized “7 Faves” episode. Join ALL of the Verities: Deb, Erika, Katrina, Lizbeth, Lynne, and Tansy as we do a rapid round of Seven Holiday Favorites. There are the usual suspects drawn from modern Who‘s rich tradition of Christmas specials, plus we veer off-piste and draw on Big Finish stories, classic Who canon (that may or may not have the most slight, tenuous grasp to anything remotely holiday-related) Doctor Who spinoffs, and short stories. It’s a mixed bag of holiday(ish) goodness.

What are your favorite Doctor Who holiday stories? Leave us a comment or drop us a tweet and let us know. And don’t forget to enter for a chance to win one of seven Big Finish Audio downloads during our 7th Anniversary Giveaway!

Extra! – Doctor Who Traditions

As the holiday season approaches we all have a lot of thoughts about traditions. I think it’s safe to say, however, that this topic probably WON’T be a Verity! tradition, basically because we can’t even agree as to what a tradition IS. But we give it a decent go as Deb, Erika, and Liz talk about their Doctor Who traditions, holiday-related and otherwise. Liz disputes most of it, Erika digs deep and Deb just has a lot of feelings about Elf on the Shelf.

Do you have any Doctor Who-based traditions? Let us know in the comments or drop us a tweet. And don’t forget to enter for a chance to win one of seven Big Finish Audio downloads during our 7th Anniversary Giveaway!

Extra! – 7 Fave Master Stories

Time for more favourites! Join Erika, Katrina, and Liz as we list our favourite Master stories from the history of Doctor Who — in one case, both on-screen and off! According to Liz, an alternate title for this episode could be “a podcast of betrayal”.

Extra! – Please Fill This Space

We don’t know about you, but we’ve been watching that space. And watching. And watching. In this sprightly Extra, Deb, Erika, and Kat talk about successful, and not so successful, Doctor Who marketing/teaser campaigns — what we thought worked well and what we thought was perhaps less than “iconic”.

Do you have a favorite Doctor Who promo campaign? Send us a tweet or let us know in the comments. Hey, at least it will give you something to think about while you’re watching that space.
