SCHEDULING NOTE: We won’t be dropping a Verity! ep on New Year’s Day because Doctor Who is dropping that day! In order to get a quorum together to talk about it, our ep (like all the series 10 Verity! eps) will drop over the weekend.
There may not be Doctor Who on Christmas Day, but we’re bringing on the Christmas cheer with this special, super-sized “7 Faves” episode. Join ALL of the Verities: Deb, Erika, Katrina, Lizbeth, Lynne, and Tansy as we do a rapid round of Seven Holiday Favorites. There are the usual suspects drawn from modern Who‘s rich tradition of Christmas specials, plus we veer off-piste and draw on Big Finish stories, classic Who canon (that may or may not have the most slight, tenuous grasp to anything remotely holiday-related) Doctor Who spinoffs, and short stories. It’s a mixed bag of holiday(ish) goodness.
What are your favorite Doctor Who holiday stories? Leave us a comment or drop us a tweet and let us know. And don’t forget to enter for a chance to win one of seven Big Finish Audio downloads during our 7th Anniversary Giveaway!
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!
