Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

Extra! – Quel Dommaged Goods

VerityExtraDamagedGoodsIt’s another bookish Extra! Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we look at another first. This time it’s Russell T Davies’ first published Doctor Who work, his New Adventures novel Damaged Goods. This is another very grown-up-themed tome, and the Verities react as such. Some really enjoy it, others not as much. But as always, it’s a great discussion! (Though we do, necessarily, venture into some rather adult territory in the course of the discussion, so sensitive/young listeners may want to beware.)

Have you read this one? If so, what do you think of it? And can you see any RTD-isms poking up in this early work? Let us know in the comments!

VerityExtraSternColgan-300On this week’s Extra! we bring you not one, but two Doctor Whotastic interviews! First, Deb talks to Alisa Stern, who is possibly better known as the force behind Doctor Puppet. If you’ve never heard Deb squee about Doctor Puppet, you probably haven’t been listening long. Then Deb chats with Jenny Colgan, award-winning author, Doctor Who fan, and writer of two Doctor Who books! Join Deb and Erika for a bit of squee before and after the interviews, and please enjoy!
