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!

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!

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!

Episode 147 – Survival Kit(ling)

Our year of loves and lasts continues with a rather big “last”. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we discuss 1989’s “Survival”, which was a “last” in many ways, although it wasn’t originally intended as such.

How do you feel about 7’s last full story? What did you think of the Cheetah People’s costumes? Is that infamous line really the nadir of Sylvester McCoy’s performances on Doctor Who? Let us know in the comments!

(Not) Fake Fanbooking

VerityExtra1stNAIt’s a book Extra! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as they discuss the very first Virgin New Adventures novel, Timewyrm: Genesys. It was the first time through for half of us, the other half of the Verities were revisiting it. While it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, and may have a seriously high “ick factor”, we’re all pleased with the existence of the whole novel range. And we spend a good amount of time chatting about that as well.

Are you a fan of the NAs? Have you revisited them and discovered issues you didn’t see the first time through? Or did you never get into them in the first place? Let us know in the comments! We’re intensely curious about this!
