Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and season’s greetings to all! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we discuss the latest Doctor Who Christmas special–yet another regeneration episode. Who cried? Who didn’t? Who’s not ready to think about the 13th Doctor? Who wants to crash right into the new era? And what did we all think about the themes and execution of “Twice upon a Time”? There’s only one way t find out!
What did you think of this final send-off for so many of the on- and off-screen talent? Let us know in the comments!
Our last first of the year is the first episode of 2016 (finally!), “The Return of Doctor Mysterio”. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, Liz, and Lynne for an almost-full set of Verities discussing this comic book pastiche and whether it succeeded wildly or failed mildly.
Did you love this Christmas special? Did you think it was just okay? Did you see it in the theatre? Let us know all these things (and anything else you have on your mind about this year of firsts) in the comments!
Lynne listened to the Tennant-Tate Big Finish adventure, Technophobia!
Huzzah and hurrah! We’ve reached 100 (numbered) episodes! Plus, it’s our three-year anniversary! What a lovely Christmas present. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we celebrate this big, round milestone and talk about River, River, River and her delightful chemistry with Peter Capaldi. And as ever, we digress and touch on stuff like casting decisions, Philip Hinchcliffe, and Star Wars.
How did you like “The Husbands of River Song”? Was it a fitting send-off for a great character? Did it leave you wanting? Do you think we’ll see River again? Would you even want that? Let us know in the comments!
has a piece about “The Wedding of Sarah Jane Smith” in Outside In 2!
The sophomore year of Verity! has officially begun! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Liz as we dive into the world of Doctor Who villains. As the holiday season has barely passed, where better to start than the Christmas episodes? How do the Christmas villains stack up compared to each other? Which story doesn’t even have a villain? Who likes “Voyage of the Damned”? Who doesn’t like “A Christmas Carol”? Listen as we struggle to keep on point and discuss the villains without slipping into discussion of the stories themselves.
