Content Warning: This week Deb and Tansy have a difficult discussion on Noel Clarke, John Barrowman, toxic work environments, and how this can affect your fandom experience. It wasn’t fun, but it was important. We understand if you want to skip this one, but if you do listen, note that we discuss sexual harassment, assault, and workplace bullying.
Happy 2021! Most of the Verities join the New Year’s party to discuss this year’s “festive special”! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, Lynne, and Tansy as we pick apart “Revolution of the Daleks”. Some of us loved it. Some of us didn’t. As always, we have a lot to say about why!
What did you think about this festive special? Drop us a tweet or let us know in the comments!
Holy buttons, what an episode! Join Deb, Katrina, and Lynne as they try to form thoughts and words and sentences about this intensely momentous episode. Sometimes it’s harder to dissect the things we love the most — especially when our heads are still spinning!
What did you think of “Fugitive of the Judoon”? Drop us a tweet or let us know in the comments!
Series 1 continues! Join Deb, Erika, and Katrina as we discuss a serious Slitheen, a crowded TARDIS, immature breakups, and more! “Boom Town” tends to be a bit of a forgotten episode, so we tried to give it its due.
How do you feel about this ep? Did you forget about it? Or do you find the personal drama exciting? Let us know in the comments!
It’s another series 1 two-parter! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we discuss Steven Moffat’s first submission to the new era of Doctor Who. There’s a lot of love for both the 9th Doctor and Captain Jack, who may or may not be the physical incarnation of the Doctor’s libido. (Thanks, Lynne, for sharing that now-unseeable, though still unbelievable fan crack-theory!)
What are your thoughts on this two-parter? Do you like the Doctor as a “dancer”? Does that make you go all squicky? Do you like Captain Jack better here or later, in Torchwood? Let us know in the comments!
As some of you know I’m a member of the Alberta Browncoats which is a not-for-profit society who regularly raises money for charities through screenings, fundraisers and shindigs. All these events are relatively local but we all know fandom doesn’t stop locally.
A certain Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) wisely imparted upon us a suggestion that we branch out in our fundraising activities to share our donated goodies with the rest of the world. Unlike the residents of the Torchwood Hub, we listened to him.
This year we launched the first of what we hope will become a tradition:
It’s Extra! time once again! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we set our sights on Doctor Who spin-offs. Which, if any, are good? Or bad? And why? Which has the best theme song? Which brought Kat into Doctor Who fandom? Which haven’t we finished watching? Which is the *real* Torchwood? As usual, there’s more to cover than we expected!
