Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

Extra! – Verity! on Verity!

VerityExtraVerityBookNo, that title doesn’t mean we’re fighting amongst ourselves (though it’s true we’re not in total agreement about this week’s topic). Join Deb, Erika, Liz, Lynne, and Tansy as we talk about Richard Marson’s new biography of Verity Lambert, Drama and Delight: The Life of Verity Lambert. Verity did an awful lot more than just launching Doctor Who. Her successes ranged from television to cooking to friendship. We chat about it all and discuss whether we thought the book succeeds as a biography.

Verity! Extra! – Summer (Winter) Reading List

VerityExtraBookClub1-210It’s almost summertime! Unless you live in the Southern Hemisphere where it’s almost wintertime! In either case, it’s a great time to start thinking about what you’ll read while on the beach/in front of the fire (or anywhere else really). Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we talk about the Doctor Who books we’ve Quite Enjoyed. It’s mostly non-fiction, but there’s some made-up stuff for you here as well if you like stories in your books.

Let us know in the comments what Doctor Who books you recommend!
