204 – The Sharper Image of the Fendahl

This 7&7 entry comes from the year 1977. That’s two whole 7s! Join Deb, Erika and Katrina as we talk about how much we love Ma Tyler, the echoes we see in RTD’s era of Doctor Who, the relationship between the Doctor and Leela, the many tropes (the good and the bad), and much more!

What do you think about “Image of the Fendahl”? Is it a classic? Middling? Are the baby fendahleen adorable? Let us know in the comments!

Ep 172 – The Face of Kicky-Stabby

This week we launch the final mini-arc in our Year of Women: Kicky-Stabby women! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we launch things in style — Sevateem style! That’s right, Leela is our first kicky-stabby heroine (in her first story, “The Face of Evil”), and we’re thrilled to have a chance to talk about her, as it’s something we haven’t done much at all on Verity!

What do you think of Leela? Of this story? Of this idea for a mini-arc? Let us know in the comments!
