Join Deb, Kat, and Tansy as they reach waaay back to 2011 to re-examine the story that began (ended? landed the middle? it’s hard to tell with peak S6-Moffat) the whole “The Doctor is the most fearsome thing in the Universe” lark. No, I didn’t misspell “arc”. They dive into tropes, power dynamics, issues of morality, the difficulties of (and sexism surrounding) introducing a baby subplot, and how words and titles have meanings. Oh, and how Regency dress and laser guns really really work for us. AND we announce a 7th Anniversary give-away!
How do you feel about this turn in the Doctor mythos? Did you think this was a satisfactory conclusion to The Mystery of River Song? Do you want Tansy to give you a bespoke Big Finish Rec? Leave us a comment or drop us a tweet and let us know!
Time for more favourites! Join Erika, Katrina, and Liz as we list our favourite Master stories from the history of Doctor Who — in one case, both on-screen and off! According to Liz, an alternate title for this episode could be “a podcast of betrayal”.
This week Deb, Erika, Liz and Tansy revisit an oft maligned (by Deb) story — “The Daleks’ Master Plan”. There are a few disagreements as to pace, plot, story, Katarina… and while may not all agree on which companion actually clocks in as the official 7th companion in Doctor Who history, we do all agree that Sara Kingdom is a BAMF.
How do you feel about this “epic” adventure? Is it a rambling mess? A beloved Doctor Who romp or BOTH? And what is your preferred method for consuming this phantom of a story? Leave us a comment or send us a tweet and let us know how you feel about Bret, Sara, The Meddling Monk or any one of the other 1,183 plot points in “The Daleks’ Master Plan”?
Deb (and most of Doctor Who fandom) is excited about the new Series 12 Trailer — new baddies, old baddies — can’t wait!
Liz is particularly excited about the cosplay options the trailer inspired — FORMAL WEAR!
We don’t know about you, but we’ve been watching that space. And watching. And watching. In this sprightly Extra, Deb, Erika, and Kat talk about successful, and not so successful, Doctor Who marketing/teaser campaigns — what we thought worked well and what we thought was perhaps less than “iconic”.
Do you have a favorite Doctor Who promo campaign? Send us a tweet or let us know in the comments. Hey, at least it will give you something to think about while you’re watching that space.
Since a few of the Verities missed the fun last time, we’re doing another This or That! (So again, big ol’ hat tip to Head Over Feels) Join Deb, Erika, and Tansy as we choose between things. So many choices!
Would you have chosen This or That? Let us know in the comments!
