2018 brings another new Verity! feature: Perfect Match, in which a Verity selects a classic Who story and a modern Who story that go together…for whatever reason. Join Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we compare and contrast Tansy’s perfect match: “The Romans” and “The Fires of Pompeii”.
What ties do you see between these two stories? How has storytelling evolved between these two tales, and how does that affect the show? Let us know what you think in the comments!
As the end of 2016 nears, we’ve come to our final classic Doctor Who story of season one. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we talk about the season one finale (and whether it really deserves the term finale). Also, Lynne is in Chicago, Liz has some epic Happy Thing Flail, Deb uses the blessed term “fanthrpological”, and Erika mentions Lazy Doctor Who probably too many times.
What did you think of the Doctor’s first season, and of “Reign of Terror” in particular? Let us know in the comments!
It’s a sangria-fueled classic-Who-episode of Verity! Join Deb, Erika, and Katrina as we cover a pure historical, “The Aztecs”. As usual, we don’t all fall in line with received fan wisdom, but for a change, the majority of us do.
Are you a fan of “The Aztecs”? Or are you bored by the lack of sci-fi elements? Let us know in the comments!
Our trip through classic season one is back to moving pictures! Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we cover Terry Nation’s eclectic 6-parter, “The Keys of Marinus”. There’s a lot to love and some to not-love. Listen and see who thinks which parts are which!
How do you feel about this story? Do you love its fairy-tale nature and the multiple adventures? Or do you think it drags? If the latter, which parts drag? We’re super-curious to know, so please tell us in the comments!
As promised, for our year of firsts, we’re taking you back to the very beginning! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we dive into the very very first Doctor Who story, “An Unearthly Child”. We’ve all seen the first episode more times than the latter three, but we have a surprising(?) amount of positivity about the rest of the story. Those cavemen aren’t half bad!
What do you think of the Doctor’s first onscreen outing? Let us know in the comments!
What would a 50th anniversary celebration year be without some talk of the companions? Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we take a break from our Classic Doctors countdown to chat about the companions who were “modern women” at the time they were on the show. Is Barbara the greatest? What’s changed about contemporary companions over the years? And has such change been for the better? Are “modern” companions even necessary? Is Barbara really the greatest?
We cover those questions and much more. So much more, in fact, that there’s even a mention of “Doctor in Distress”. (Editor’s note: Click that link at your own risk. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.)
