Two weeks in a row with new Doctor Who to watch! We’re practically beside ourselves. Join Deb, Erika, Top Kat, and Lynne as we chew on “Smile”. Feelings are mixed about this one, and as always, that leads to a great discussion. Also as always, there’s aheaping helping of silliness–this time, in the form of mashed potatoes. (Just listen. It’ll make sense. Probably.)
What did you think of “Smile”? And how do you feel about mashed potatoes? Let us know in the comments!
IT’S HERE IT’S HERE IT’S HERE! FINALLY! We have watched a new episode of Doctor Who! Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we talk about Bill, the Doctor, (possibly) dead lesbians, fat jokes, re-treaded ground, callbacks, and lots more.
Are you as excited to have Who back on the airwaves/internets as we are? Why or why not? Let us know in the comments!
It’s time to talk about something Tansy loves! Join Deb, Erika, and the aforementioned Tansy as we delve into the Land of Fiction and talk about metatextuality, rearranging faces, Medusas, and unicorns!
Have you seen this story? Did you love it like we did? Do you have other metatextual recommendations? (And yes. We did totally miss The Girl Who Loved Doctor Who, though that’s kind of the opposite!) Let us know in the comments!
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!
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!
This week’s “last” is a goodbye to a companion we’re all quite fond of, Steven Taylor (not to be confused with Steven Tyler). Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we marvel at the excellence of this story, the excellence of Dodo in it, the excellence of Steven’s reason for leaving the TARDIS, and the total lack of excellence in the general amount of fandom discussion surrounding this story. Why have we heard so little about this one?
Have you watched/read/listened to “The Savages”? Did you love it? Tell us in the comments!
