NEW. DOCTOR. WHO. FINALLY. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we flail over our feels after this intensely feel-fueled BBC Centenary special, which just happens to be the final episode of an amazing Doctor that we’re all going to miss.
How did you feel about “The Power of the Doctor”? Did you need Pepto Bismol? Or were you annoyed/confused by all the fan service? Drop us a tweet or let us know in the comments!
Were you as excited as we were to see Tegan and Ace in the preview following “Legend of the Sea Devil”? Heck, yeah you were! And if you’re a Modern Who fan who is wondering what all the fuss was about, don’t worry, we’ve got you. This week Deb and Lynne discuss Tegan and Ace, what makes them fascinating characters and what classic Who stories are good primers to watch before the 13th Doctor’s finale.
How do you feel about Tegan and Ace? Drop us a tweet or let us know in the comments!
7&7 brings us back to the 7th Doctor! Join Deb, Lizbeth, and Lynne as they discuss “Ghost Light”. They do talk about things other than Ace-in-a-tux, but let’s face it, that’s one of the more important aspects of this story.
How do you feel about Ghost Light? Or about Ace in a tux? Let us know in the comments!
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!
Our final mini-arc continues with Ace, who bashes and ‘splodes her way though “Remembrance of the Daleks”. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lizbeth as we talk about Ace and her baseball bat and the Nitro-9 she’s not carrying.
What do you think of Ace, both in this story and generally? Let us know in the comments!
This mini-arc may have curved all the way off the rails, but we don’t care. Ace is the embodiment of this very idea, and “The Greatest Show in the Galaxy” gives us plenty to talk about. Including, of course, a significant tangent about the history of clowns in popular media. Because why not?
What do you think about Ace’s companion-collecting habits? And do you think she and Mags would have made a good TARDIS team? Let us know in the comments!
The final story in our competent-women mini-arc is “Battlefield” another story with a number of women to discuss. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Liz as we dig into this classic story. From witch-queens to explosive companions to brigadiers to helicopter pilots, there’s a lot to talk about!
What do you think of the cavalcade of ladies in this story? Let us know in the comments!
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!
