Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

Posts tagged ‘7&7’

197 – The Girl with the Dragonfire Tattoo

It’s back to the Seventh Doctor’s era with Mel’s last story and Ace’s first. Join Deb, Erika, and Lynne as we talk about what works for us and what doesn’t. There’s a healthy detour into age-based gender politics, so buckle up!

What do you think of “Dragonfire”? Do you love the look of it like Deb? Do you un-love the look of it like Erika? Do you adore Ace like Lynne? Are you giving massive side-eye to Mel’s departure scenes like we all are? Let us know in the comments!

Extra! – 7 Faves from the RTD Era

We’re back this week to list more favourites–seven of them each! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lizbeth as we list our seven fave episodes/stories from the Russel T. Davies era. Will we overlap at all? Will there maybe be something we all pick? Listen and see!

What’s your list of faves? Let us know in the comments!

196 – The Ambassadors of Death in Paradise

Season 7 continues with a 7-episode story — like it was tailor-made for our 7&7 series! Join Deb, Erika, and Lizbeth as we discuss this story, which only one of us had already seen in its entirety! (Hint: It was the one of us who WROTE A BOOK ABOUT IT.)

What do you think of this story? Is it cinematic? Boring? Something in between? And did “received fan wisdom” tell you anything about it before you watched? Let us know in the comments!

195 – Fly to the Angels Take Manhattan

This week we’re back to series 7a, and we finish it off! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we discuss the final episode with Amy and Rory. Is it a well-constructed send-off? Does it even make sense? Do we really care? Are the feels more important?

What do you think about this ep? Let us know in the comments!

Extra! – AVA, the Sevens Edition

Ok, so the “sevens” thing is a total stretch, but we make it work. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we answer questions provided by you, the listeners, who “Ask Verity Anything”!

Have questions for a future AVA session? The comment section here is the best place to put them. Even if you’ve already tweeted them at us, it wouldn’t hurt to put them here too because we don’t always see everything that comes at us on social media. We look forward to your questions in the comments!

194 – Delta and the Bannermen Behaving Badly

It’s 7th Doctor time again! Join Deb, Katrina, and Tansy as they talk about the kitschy fiftiesness that makes up “Delta and the Bannermen”. Sadly for Erika, she watched the story and was too unwell to make it onto the podcast.

How do you feel about this story? Let us know in the comments!

Special thanks to our guest editor for this episode, Steven Schapansky of Castria!

Extra! – Seven Comfanions

Remember back in Episode 66 when Deb accidentally coined the term “comfanion” for a companion-that-never-was-but-we-wish-they-were? Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we each pick seven guest stars we wish would have joined the TARDIS team. (Or in Lynne’s case, seven characters the internet picked for her!)

Which seven comfanions would be on your list? Let us know in the comments!
