Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

Is it Susan? IT’S NEVER SUSAN! Join Deb, Tansy, and Kat as they discuss not only the meme, but why they think it needs to be Susan. Along the way they delve into Susan’s leaving story “The Dalek Invasion of Earth” and its many twists and tropes.

Do you think Susan’s story needs a bit of closure? Drop us a tweet or let us know in the comments!

This Extra! comes to you from a poolside balcony! (IRL podcasting in the age of COVID is…interesting.) Join Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we discuss our time at this year’s Gallifrey One, which is definitely different from usual in a lot of ways. We miss our friends (and co-hosts!) a lot, but we have some great fun and appreciate the many safety measures the con instituted to make us feel comfortable.

A billion thanks to Shaun Lyon and all the volunteers (and guests and attendees) that made Gally 2022 a smashing success!

Were you at Gally this year? If so, what was your experience like? Drop us a tweet or let us know in the comments!

This week we are Connecting the Docs. (Thanks KarenD for that name suggestion!) Join Deb, Liz, Lynne, and Tansy as they connect Season 13’s “War of the Sontarans” to the 4th Doctor story “The Sontaran Experiment”. We also take a side journey to revisit “The Time Warrior” as well as “The Sontaran Stratagem”.

Terrifying or hilarious? And how do you situate The Sontarans among the Trifecta of Big Bads? More ruthless than the Daleks? More methodical than the Cybermen? Drop us a tweet or let us know in the comments!
