Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

We don’t do ads much on Verity!, but when we do, it’s for something that’s a genuine Happy Thing! We’re pleased to bring you a snippet from an upcoming ep of David Tennant Does a Podcast With… Jim Parsons!

Our regular weekly ep will drop tomorrow morning as usual. This is just a fun bonus!

We’re back with another received fan wisdom hindsight check. Join Deb, Erika, and Tansy as we talk about “The Caves of Androzani” and whether it really belongs at the top of all those fan polls. Is it the greatest Doctor Who story of all time? Or is is “a lot of men being unpleasant in the dark”?

Have you watched this story recently? If so, what did you think, and how did that compare with how you felt about it in the first place? Do you agree with its placement in fan polls? Let us know in the comments!

Time for more hindsight. Join Deb, Erika, and Katrina as we dip back and see if “Blink” is really all that or if our views have changed over the years.

Have you revisited this story recently? If so, what did you think, and how did that compare with how you felt about it in the first place? How do you feel about it as a Doctor Who intro story? And has that changed? Let us know in the comments!

This week Deb comes up with a cooperative way to friend-source game material for the podcast. Join her as she puts Erika, Katrina, and Lynne through a new edition of “Seven Minutes in Heaven/Hell” with topics by friend-of-the-show (and as we recorded, birthday-boy) Kyle Anderson! We’re calling this new targeted crowd-sourcing feature “We Get By with a Little Help from Our Friends”.

What do you have to say about these topics? Drop us a tweet or let us know in the comments!

Time for another bit of hindsight. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we discuss Deb’s modern Who pick to look back at, “The Rings of Akhaten”. Fandom really hates this one. And we (mostly) didn’t love it the first time around. Do we now? Have we grown souls (according to Liz)? Listen and see!

Have you revisited this story recently? If so, what did you think, and how did that compare with how you felt about it in the first place? And how do you think this story compares to “Vincent and the Doctor”? Let us know in the comments!
