Extra! – There’s Nothing “Only” About Being a Doctor + Our Gap Months

It’s official! We have a new Doctor! And she’s a SHE. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we dive into our reactions to this truly momentous news. There were many tears, though not for all the same reasons.

But we won’t see Jodie Whittaker in the role for months. And then after that, it’ll be a lotta months before we get the next series. In our second timey-wimey segment we talk about what we’re gonna do to fill those lonely, Who-less months. “Shadow cabinet of spreadsheets,” anyone?

How do you feel about Whittaker’s impending Doctorhood? And what will you be doing while we wait for the new Doctor and new series? Let us know in the comments!

Verity! Extra! – Nothing ‘Only’ about Being a Girl…Doctor

VerityExtraFemaleDoctor-300Nothing sends fandom into a tizzy like thoughts of a new Doctor. Nothing sends fandom into an even bigger tizzy than that like thoughts of a *gasp* woman Doctor! Join Deb, Erika, Kat, and Liz as we discuss why this is such a hot-button issue and why we each feel the way we do about the prospect.  (No, believe it or not, we do not all want a female Doctor.)
