Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

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!

Extra-special thanks to Steven Schapansky of Castria for doing a bang-up job of editing this special, musical Extra!

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?
