Verity! Episode 58 – The Tyger Sleeps in the Forest of the Night

VerityEpisode58Welcome to what’s probably the least enthusiastic episode of Verity! this series. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we mull over what we thought of this episode. While there are no real strong feelings about the story, we’re unanimous in our appreciation of the direction of Sheree Folkson. If nothing else, this was a gorgeous episode! And of course, we make time for some more examination of the Danny-Clara-Doctor triangle.
