Extra! – There’s Nothing “Only” About Being a Doctor + Our Gap Months

It’s official! We have a new Doctor! And she’s a SHE. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we dive into our reactions to this truly momentous news. There were many tears, though not for all the same reasons.

But we won’t see Jodie Whittaker in the role for months. And then after that, it’ll be a lotta months before we get the next series. In our second timey-wimey segment we talk about what we’re gonna do to fill those lonely, Who-less months. “Shadow cabinet of spreadsheets,” anyone?

How do you feel about Whittaker’s impending Doctorhood? And what will you be doing while we wait for the new Doctor and new series? Let us know in the comments!

Extra! – Day One, Chibnall-Style

VerityExtraDay1Time for another first-based Extra! (Which is sadly sans-Deb–damn real world!) Join Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we talk about Chris Chibnall’s first foray into the televised Doctor Who universe. It’s not an ep of DW, however. The first he wrote was the second episode of Torchwood, “Day One”. It’s a solid start that gets the series rolling with lots of delicious character interaction and provides much-needed visibility for bisexual people. That’s our story and we’re sticking to it.

Have you seen “Day One”? Did you enjoy it as much as we did? Or is “camp-noir” not for you? Let us know in the comments!

Emergency Extra! – Moffat Says Goodbye, Chibnall Says Hello

VerityExtraChibnallSchedule be damned! When there’s Doctor Who news this big, we throw gently set the spreadsheet aside. Join Deb, Erika, and Tansy as we talk about our feelings upon hearing Steven Moffat will be stepping down after season 10. And just as importantly, we discuss our hopes and fears for the Chris Chibnall era to come. Of course, the news that we won’t have any new Doctor Who until the Christmas special is quite something as well. We’ve got sadness and joy, hope and fear, excitement and meh.

What about you? What was your reaction to all the news? Let us know in the comments!
