We Sing in Praise of The King’s Demons

It’s Tansy’s turn in the Comfort Who driver’s seat! Join Deb, Erika, Kat, and Tansy as we talk about the ever-delightful “King’s Demons”. Received fan wisdom is just straight-up wrong once again. (Except maybe about Kamelion. Maybe.)

Verity! Episode 39 – Turn, Smile, Shapeshift, Repeat

VerityEpisode39-300This week we cover what are some of the trickiest of the villains the Doctor has faced (one who even wears his face)! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we try to stay on topic talking about shapeshifters. What is it about them that’s scary? Do they hold the same appeal for all of us? Is a talking cactus a more or less believable shapeshifter than a mostly-non-functioning robot?
