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!

122 – Doing the Robot

verityepisode122Another excellent first for you this week! Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we discuss the 4th Doctor’s first episode. It’s also a first in a few other ways–including in our hearts for some.

How do you feel about “Robot”? Do you love the big lug, the wackypants new Doctor who defeats him, and Sarah Jane’s go-get-’em attitude? Or do you think it’s so blatant a King Kong ripoff it distracts you from the story. Let us know in the comments!
