Our villains mini-arc continues with a duplicitous dame. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we dig into Viven Fay (aka Cessair of Diplos, aka the Cailleach, aka many other names). With many many many tangents to celebrate the greatness of Beatrix Lehmann as Professor Amelia Rumford.
Are you a fan of these two? Let us know in the comments!
It’s time for another year-of-women mini-arc, y’all! Join Deb, Erika, and Lynne as we begin to focus on villains. Our first foray into the territory of lady baddies starts in Venice in 1580: Rosanna Calvierri in “The Vampires of Venice”.
What do you think of this story, this villain, her motives, her species, her biology, and (most importantly) her collar? Let us know in the comments!
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!
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!
2018 brings another new Verity! feature: Perfect Match, in which a Verity selects a classic Who story and a modern Who story that go together…for whatever reason. Join Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we compare and contrast Tansy’s perfect match: “The Romans” and “The Fires of Pompeii”.
What ties do you see between these two stories? How has storytelling evolved between these two tales, and how does that affect the show? Let us know what you think in the comments!
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!
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!
