Time for more hindsight. Join Deb, Erika, and Katrina as we dip back and see if “Blink” is really all that or if our views have changed over the years.
Have you revisited this story recently? If so, what did you think, and how did that compare with how you felt about it in the first place? How do you feel about it as a Doctor Who intro story? And has that changed? Let us know in the comments!
Okay, this “7” is a stretch but we made it work. Join Deb, Lynne, and Tansy as we dissect the rollicking, emotional, and devastating story duo of “Army of Ghosts” and “Doomsday”.
We give credit to 8 y.o. RTD (the obvious creator of the Dalek v. Cyberman smackdown) while calling out the emotional manipulation he inflicted upon both Jackie and Rose. But we all come together in our adoration Yvonne Hartman’s confidence (and tailoring) and Mickey Smith’s swagger.
What are your favorite bits of this, literally, epic two-parter? Or was the emotional manipulation just a bit too much? Let us know what you think in the comments!
This week is another “Lucky 7” with the seventh episode of series 4. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we talk about mysteries, celebrity historicals, classism, racism, and how we deal with media created by people with views we abhor.
What do you think of “The Unicorn and the Wasp”? And how do you deal with stories created by people whose views harm you and/or people you love? Let us know in the comments!
It’s another “lucky 7”! Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we discuss the seventh episode of series two, “The Idiot’s Lantern”. This story didn’t age as well as some of us hoped, but it does leave us with a lot to talk about.
How do you feel about this episode? Let us know in the comments!
2018 brings another new Verity! feature: Perfect Match, in which a Verity selects a classic Who story and a modern Who story that go together…for whatever reason. Join Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we compare and contrast Tansy’s perfect match: “The Romans” and “The Fires of Pompeii”.
What ties do you see between these two stories? How has storytelling evolved between these two tales, and how does that affect the show? Let us know what you think in the comments!
Our year of loves and lasts hits another love. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we discuss an episode that Kat really loves: “The Sound of Drums”. Yes, you read that right. Kat loves a 10th Doctor episode, and we find out why! We also talk about why the rest of us like it. There are numerous reasons, including Jack and the Master and good old Martha.
Why do you love (or not love) this ep? Let us know in the comments!
has a Doctor Who room in her new house! And it’s not also the dining room!
Now that series 10 is over, our year of loves and lasts continues with a love. A lot of love. Two episodes of love, in fact! Join Deb, Erika, and Tansy as we dip back into series 2 with a two-parter that Deb just loves: “The Impossible Planet” and “The Satan Pit”.
Do you love these eps like we do? Do you find the same bits a tad uncomfortable? Other bits? No bits? Let us know in the comments!
It’s high time we started on the love part of our year of love and lasts. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we cover Lynne’s love, “The Girl in the Fireplace”. Liz and Deb do some LJ fanthropology, Erika has a change of heart, and Lynne gushes about France and frocks. Of course we do our usual random-tangent thing too. X-men fighting leprechauns, anyone?
What did (and do) you think of this ep? Do you love it like Lynne or hate it like an old-school Rose/10 shipper? Or somewhere in between? Let us know in the comments!
Lynne is delighted to learn that Chicago TARDIS will welcome Sophie Aldred and Peter Davison to this year’s convention!
We made it, guys! The 50th anniversary special has come, kicked booty, and gone again. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, Lynne, and Tansy as we marvel at many things including the ways Doctor Who brings people together, the utter joy of seeing three Doctors on screen together for So Many Minutes, the genius of working in Billie Piper as not-Rose, the way Moffat “fixed” so many elements of classic and new Who, and, not least of all, the hilarity of seeing classic Doctors send themselves up beautifully.
There’s more than enough love and joy and squee to go around!
