Episode 132 – Meta Mind Robbery

It’s time to talk about something Tansy loves! Join Deb, Erika, and the aforementioned Tansy as we delve into the Land of Fiction and talk about metatextuality, rearranging faces, Medusas, and unicorns!

Have you seen this story? Did you love it like we did? Do you have other metatextual recommendations? (And yes. We did totally miss The Girl Who Loved Doctor Who, though that’s kind of the opposite!) Let us know in the comments!

Verity! Episode 26 – Two New 2! It’s True!

VerityEpisode26-300Woo hoo! This week Deb, Erika, Katrina, Liz, and Lynne join the ranks of gleeful fans around the world as we celebrate the return of nine previously-lost second Doctor episodes! We just happen to have reached dear old 2 in our countdown, so we threw out the story we planned for and decided “The Web of Fear” is a great representative story. Though maybe not all of us were quite as squeeful about it as expected.

Of course we can’t help but talk about “The Enemy of the World” a bit too. It’s all just SO EXCITING!
