Episode 231 – Timelash Extensions

Time for another received fan wisdom hindsight check. Join Deb, Katrina, Liz, and Tansy as they discuss “Timelash” and whether it really belongs at the bottom of all those fan polls.

Have you watched this story recently? If so, what did you think, and how did that compare with how you felt about it in the first place? Do you agree with its placement in fan polls? Let us know in the comments!


Collective happy thing because Liz sneaks it in: “Marco Polo” on vinyl!

Lynne’s Two Cents: What I Did For Love

I’m totally bummed to have missed out on the Who’s In What discussion, so I thought I’d weigh in on some of the things I have experienced because they have Doctor Who actors in them.

Verity! Episode 17 – Six, Six, Six, the Number of Colin Baker?

VerityEpisode17-300And just like that, we’re back to our 50th anniversary countdown of the Doctors, and it’s the sixth Doctor’s turn! Join Deb, Erika, Kat, and Liz as we discuss the delights (or lack thereof) of Colin Baker’s reign as our favorite Time Lord. Or is the Doctor our favorite Time Lord, now that we’ve seen the Rani? That’s right, we’re talking about “The Mark of the Rani”, which at least one of us thought was the most representative story of the sixth Doctor’s run.

Is old Colin as bad as so many folks say he is? Is Peri? Does the Rani now own Deb thoroughly? Should we have covered “Timelash” instead? We don’t actually agree on most of these things, but boy howdy do we have a good time talking about them!
