198 – Time-Flight of (the) Concordes

For this “lucky 7”, we dip into the seventh story of season 19. Join Deb, Erika, and Katrina as we once again punch received fan wisdom right in the face.

What do you think about “Time-Flight” is it as boring and awful as the masses would have you believe? Or is it actually pretty fun? And what was your take on the mourning for Adric and Tegan’s “cliffhanger” departure? Let us know in the comments!


Happy things:

118 – Washing Clothes in Adriclandia

verityepisode118It’s another old-school first! This time, it’s the first episode directed by Fiona Cumming (though not her first association with Doctor Who), as well as the first Fifth Doctor episode. There’s A Lot of fun to be had. And yes, sometimes there’s a quote so good you just have to give up on shoehorning the DW ep title into the podcast ep title.

What do you think about “Castrovalva”? Do you love the script and direction and acting and everything else all the time? Or did you get bored with the tromping through the forest? Let us know in the comments!

Verity! Episode 19 – Doctor 5 Is Alive!

VerityEpisode19-300The classic Doctor countdown continues! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we discuss the Peter Davison era–the Doctor, the companions, the stories, the relationships, and of course, the costumes. And all of these things in relation to this week’s “representative” episode, “Mawdryn Undead”.

Who loves Doctor number five? Who loves the companions? Who thinks the companions love each other? Who doesn’t? If you’ve been listening a while, some of those answers may be obvious,  but perhaps not all!
