205 – Yule Logopolis

This week we have the seventh story from the seventh year of the only Doctor to stick around that long. Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we talk over the 4th Doctor’s exit.

How do you feel about “Logopolis”? Is it a touching exit? A bunch of nonsense? A boring slog with just a few moments of joy? Let us know in the comments!

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!

203 – The Unicorn and the Wasp’s Nest

This week is another “Lucky 7” with the seventh episode of series 4. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we talk about mysteries, celebrity historicals, classism, racism, and how we deal with media created by people with views we abhor.

What do you think of “The Unicorn and the Wasp”? And how do you deal with stories created by people whose views harm you and/or people you love? Let us know in the comments!

190 – Lucky 7: 42 Problems (& Martha Ain’t One)

Burn with us! Join Deb, Erika, Lizbeth, and Tansy as we burn through lots of feeling about Martha and lots of comparisons to “The Impossible Planet” and “The Satan Pit”. It’s a fast-paced, sweaty episode, and that’s just the way we (mostly) like it!

What are your thoughts on “42”? Let us know in the comments!
