Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

Posts tagged ‘interview’

Extra! – Gallyriffic!


Once again, we bring you a Gallifrey One-based Verity! that we recorded while in the same room! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Liz as we giggle over convention fun and revel in the rare experience of recording face-to-face. This year’s Gally saw many of the Verities on stage (interviewing!), on panels (being erudite and awesome!), and wandering the lobby and halls of the LAX Marriott (having a lovely time!).

In addition, Deb has a great interview with director Rachel Talalay, who was a bit of a rockstar at this year’s convention.

Verity! Extra! – Pleasant, Unpusillanimous Peri

VerityExtraNicolaBryantNow that new Doctor Who is done for a while, it’s time to bring back the Extras! And we’re kicking them off in style–with an interview! Deb chatted with Nicola Bryant at LI Who, and she had some interesting things to say, both about Big Finish, and about being a female actor through the years.

Before the interview itself, join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we talk about Peri’s evolution throughout the course of her Big Finish appearances. Want to check out Peri in audio form, but don’t know where to start? It will come as no surprise that we have suggestions! (Also favorites!)

Verity! Extra! – Big Finish Round Table

VerityExtraBFWriters210We at Verity! often jabber on about Big Finish, but this time we thought we’d let some experts do the jabbering for us. Join Deb, Erika, and Liz (who is actually one of the experts in question) as we chat with a couple special guests. Yes, we have not one, not two, but three Big Finish writers in the house! Una McCormack makes an overdue return, and we’re delighted to welcome Caroline Symcox to the podcast!

If you’ve ever been curious about what the Big Finish process is like, this is the Extra! for you. And if you have a favorite BF audio, do tell us in the comments. We’re always all ears for recommendations (and specifically, recs for where to start)!

Also, do you like free stuff? Well, then be sure to enter our Big Finish giveaway! Three people will win download codes for three different stories (Breaking Bubbles and Other Stories, The Council of Nicaea, and Starborn [by Jacqueline Rayner]), and a fourth lucky winner will win codes for all three!

Verity! Extra! – Puppets and Pen Names

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!
