Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

Posts tagged ‘Chris Chibnall’

Just Spin-offs!

It’s another “Big Idea” segment! Join Deb, Erika, Kat, and Tansy as we talk about Deb’s Big Idea — Doctor Who guest actors who could carry their own show (and what kind of show that might be)!

And yes, we do spend some time talking about The Big News about Jodie Whittaker and Chris Chibnall leaving the show. Thus the dearth of Happy Things.

Which guest characters do you think could carry their own series? And what would that series entail? Drop us a tweet or let us know in the comments!

Industrial Revolution of the Daleks

Happy 2021! Most of the Verities join the New Year’s party to discuss this year’s “festive special”! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, Lynne, and Tansy as we pick apart “Revolution of the Daleks”. Some of us loved it. Some of us didn’t. As always, we have a lot to say about why!

Episode 222 – He Blew Up Traditional Fandom

Series 12 was certainly no series 11! Join Deb, Lynne, and Tansy as they discuss the series as a whole. The additional risk-taking, the historicals, the Master, the Doctor, the Doctor, and so much more. There’s a lot to dig into.

Episode 221 – Remember The Timeless Children

And with that, series 12 comes to an end! Join Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we talk about how our canon has regenerated once again. We dig into many possibilities and also try to help Kat figure out exactly how she feels about this story and why. Trail mix, anyone?

Episode 220 – Ascension of the Cybermen Don’t Leave

It’s hard to talk about the first part of a two-parter when it doesn’t really wrap up anything! Join Deb, Katrina, and Lynne as they discuss Brendan and the Doctor and her relationship with her companions and their feelings about her and a proper-scary Cyberman and the Master and ALL OF IT.

Episode 219 – The Haunting of Villa Diodati Time

A Verity! first — a live-in-person recording at Gallifrey One about an episode of Doctor Who! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Liz as we discuss the episode we watched in a room full of fellow Doctor Who fans. Gally is always a wonderful, but thoroughly exhausting experience, so please forgive the mistaken episode number in the intro. We swear we didn’t slip 72 episodes into the future.

Episode 217 – Praxeus Weekly

Coming off the epicness that was “Fugitive of the Judoon”, this week’s story had quite the shoes to fill (or not try to fill). Join Erika, Lizbeth, and Lynne as we discus this rollicking episode full of characters and moments and laughs and scares.

Episode 216 – Fugitive of the Judoon… Desert Planet

Holy buttons, what an episode! Join Deb, Katrina, and Lynne as they try to form thoughts and words and sentences about this intensely momentous episode. Sometimes it’s harder to dissect the things we love the most — especially when our heads are still spinning!
