Extra! – A Verity! Regeneration

Happy 2023, everyone! This year, after 10 years of podcasting, Verity! is going to regenerate! Join Deb, Erika, Kat, Liz, Lynne, and Tansy as we all look back at the last 10 years and share some general hopes for the future! We also chat about the trailer for the Tennant-and-Tate 60th anniversary specials. Much excitement and many feels all around!

Yes, that’s right, Verity! will be taking a hiatus and making some changes, so think of this ep as the speech at the end of “Survival”, but with the knowledge that the show WILL come back again — and a lot sooner than Doctor Who did in the 80s/90s!

Many many thanks for listening, whether you’ve been with us since 2013, picked up somewhere since then, or are joining us right now! We appreciate the community that has built itself up around us, and we’re excited to regenerate into the next version of Verity! to keep bringing you thoughts and feelings about Doctor Who for a good long while to come!

Extra! – Fanciful Holiday Gifting

The holiday season is upon us, and we’re in a giving mood! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we take a page out of the Deeper Cuts holiday book and pick Doctor Who-related gifts for the world and for each other. These are mostly fanciful things that couldn’t possibly happen, but they’re a lot of fun nonetheless. It’s clear that after 10 years podcasting together, we know what will delight our fellow Verities!

We also briefly touch on the announcement of Ncuti Gatwa’s and Millie Gibson’s new costumes, in which we all become sci-fi fashionistas. Do check out the video to see things up close!

What would you gift to the world as some holiday DW goodness? Drop us a tweet or let us know in the comments!

Extra! – Everywhere in Neverwhere

Remember our “Who Adjacent” features, where we’d pick a non-DoctorWho property with some Who DNA? Join Deb, Erika, Kat, and Tansy as we talk about Erika’s pick, Neverwhere which has so many relations to Doctor Who they’re practically first cousins. From Peter Capaldi as the Angel Islington to the series being created by a Who actor (Lenny Henry) and a Who writer (Neil Gaiman), there are connections galore, and we dive deep! Just like Neverwhere does under London.

Have you seen Neverwhere? Or read/listened to it? What did you think? Did you notice any Who connections we didn’t mention? Drop us a tweet or let us know in the comments!
