The Sontaran Experiment Gum

This week we are Connecting the Docs. (Thanks KarenD for that name suggestion!) Join Deb, Liz, Lynne, and Tansy as they connect Season 13’s “War of the Sontarans” to the 4th Doctor story “The Sontaran Experiment”. We also take a side journey to revisit “The Time Warrior” as well as “The Sontaran Stratagem”.

Terrifying or hilarious? And how do you situate The Sontarans among the Trifecta of Big Bads? More ruthless than the Daleks? More methodical than the Cybermen? Drop us a tweet or let us know in the comments!

122 – Doing the Robot

verityepisode122Another excellent first for you this week! Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we discuss the 4th Doctor’s first episode. It’s also a first in a few other ways–including in our hearts for some.

How do you feel about “Robot”? Do you love the big lug, the wackypants new Doctor who defeats him, and Sarah Jane’s go-get-’em attitude? Or do you think it’s so blatant a King Kong ripoff it distracts you from the story. Let us know in the comments!

120 – K-9, in Good Company

verityepisode120In continuing with our year of firsts, we decided to check out Doctor Who‘s first ever spin-off! Join Deb, Erika, and Liz as we discuss the gem that is K-9 and Company. Sarah Jane in her “natural” habitat! The greatest aunt of all–Lavinia! stereotypical rural folks! A cult! And perhaps most importantly of all, a very concerned goat.

Have you seen this jewel of a Christmas special? Please tell us what you thought in the comments!

Verity! Extra! – Spin-off? Or Spin-out?

VerityExtraSpinoffs-300It’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?
