190 – Lucky 7: 42 Problems (& Martha Ain’t One)

Burn with us! Join Deb, Erika, Lizbeth, and Tansy as we burn through lots of feeling about Martha and lots of comparisons to “The Impossible Planet” and “The Satan Pit”. It’s a fast-paced, sweaty episode, and that’s just the way we (mostly) like it!

Extra! – 7 Favourite Costumes

On this week’s Extra, we bring you more 7s. Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we each talk about seven of our favourite costumes from all of the history of Doctor Who. Some of us found this exercise rather painful (only 7!?), but it was a delightful chat!

Can you pick out a mere seven of your favourite costumes? Let us know in the comments!

189 – Strange Matter of Time and the Rani

7&7 continues with the very first story of the 7th Doctor’s era. Join Deb, Erika, Lizbeth, and Lynne as we talk about the rocky early days of Sylvester McCoy’s run on the show. As you might expect, there’s also a lot of talk about the Rani, and even some love for Mel. If you’re hoping for an hour of slagging-off this story, kindly try another podcast, because we can’t help you.

What do you think of “Time and the Rani”, or the 7th Doctor, or the Rani, or Mel, or anything else we covered here? Let us know in the comments!

188 – Soul Asylum of the Daleks

We start off our year of sevens with the first story in series 7a. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we discuss “Asylum of the Daleks”. Sure there are Daleks, but there’s relationship angst, and we really dig into that, which should surprise nobody.
