126 – The Return of Doctor Mysterio (Yeah!)

verityepisode126Our 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!

Verity! Episode 65 – I’m Dreaming of a Last Christmas

VerityEpisode65Happy holidays one and all! This week it’s an oversized celebration, as we have all six Verities onboard for this ep! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, Liz, Lynne, and Tansy as we celebrate the season by talking about the last new Doctor Who episode we’ll have for a while. It’s mostly Christmas cheer all up in here, so if you’re looking for a good rant, you’re (mostly) in the wrong place. We talk Capaldi, Clara, Danny, Santa, and more!

What did you think of this year’s Christmas outing? Was it Santastic? Or ho-ho-horrible? Let us know in the comments!

It’s been a great year here at Verity! Thanks to everyone for listening, supporting, and taking part in the conversation!

Verity! Episode 33 – Christmas Villains: Naughty or Nice?

VerityEpisode33-300The 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.

Verity! Episode 32 – Doctor Stew Is Required

VerityEpisode32-300It’s official. 2013 is over, and so is the tenure of Matt Smith as the Doctor. Once again, join ALL the Verities: Deb, Erika, Katrina, Liz, Lynne, and Tansy, as we discuss Matt’s final episode. It should come as no surprise that we disagree on whether this was a good and worthy sendoff for such a fine Doctor. Who loved it? Who didn’t? And why? Listen and see!

This week we have our first pre-release erratum! Tansy’s daughter Raeli wanted her to tell everyone that she got The Abominable Snowmen Target novelisation, & the one Tansy is reading to Jemima is The Ice Warriors. This will make sense to you after you’ve listened to what’s caught Tansy’s attention in Doctor Who this week.
