Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

Lynne’s Two Cents: What I Did For Love

I’m totally bummed to have missed out on the Who’s In What discussion, so I thought I’d weigh in on some of the things I have experienced because they have Doctor Who actors in them.

Some of them were excellent, and some of them were… experiences. So, here you go. Benefit from the rabbit holes that I have explored. ūüôā (more…)

Verity! Episode 32 – Doctor Stew Is Required

VerityEpisode32-300It’s official. 2013 is over, and so is the tenure of Matt Smith as the Doctor. Once again, join ALL the Verities: Deb, Erika, Katrina, Liz, Lynne, and Tansy, as we discuss Matt’s final episode. It should come as no surprise that we disagree on whether this was a good and worthy sendoff for such a fine Doctor. Who loved it? Who didn’t? And why? Listen and see!

This week we have our first pre-release erratum! Tansy’s daughter¬†Raeli wanted her to tell everyone that she got The Abominable Snowmen Target novelisation, & the one Tansy is reading to Jemima is The Ice Warriors. This will make sense to you after you’ve listened to what’s caught Tansy’s attention in Doctor Who this week.

Verity! Extra! – We Wish You a Merry Smith-mas!

VerityExtraMattSmith-300Though it pains us to say it (some more than others), the time of our beloved Matt Smith’s tenure as the Doctor is almost at an end. (By the time you get around to this, it may well be over.) Join ALL of the Verities(!) Deb, Erika, Katrina, Liz, Lynne, and Tansy, as we discuss why we think he’s been so successful in the role and reminisce about our favorite 11th-Doctor stories. We’re all excited about Peter Capaldi, but we can’t help being sad to see such a wonderful Doctor say farewell.

It’s another extra-long Extra! as our holiday gift to you. (Or maybe it’s just that we have a lot to say, and when ALL SIX of us are together it takes even longer to say it!)

Verity! Episode 29 – A Day in the Lives

VerityEpisode29-300We made it, guys! The 50th anniversary special has come, kicked booty, and gone again. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, Lynne, and Tansy as we marvel at many things including the ways¬†Doctor Who brings people together, the utter joy of seeing three Doctors on screen together for So Many Minutes, the genius of working in Billie Piper as not-Rose, the way Moffat “fixed” so many elements of classic and new¬†Who, and, not least of all, the hilarity of seeing classic Doctors send themselves up beautifully.

There’s more than enough love and joy and squee to go around!

Verity! Extra! – Matt Smith, Adieu and JN-T Ado

VerityExtraMattSmithJNT-300Now that new¬†Doctor Who is no longer gracing our screens on a weekly basis, Verity! is back to our usual schedule. That means a “proper” episode every-other-week, but fear not! We’ll have a little something for you in the off-weeks as well. This off-week it’s more than little–it’s an extra-long Extra!

Join Deb, Erika, Kat, Lynne, and Tansy as we cover the departure of our beloved Matt Smith and then tackle Richard Marson’s¬†headline-making book¬†JN-T:¬†The Life and Scandalous Times of John Nathan-Turner. If you’d like to take Tansy’s advice and search out more podcastey goodness covering the book, check out Radio Free Skaro’s interview with Richard Marson.

VerityEpisode16-300

Series 7b might be over, but we’re not done talking about it! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy for an extra-long episode of Verity! We’re talking about a whole (half) series after all, so of course we needed a little extra time. Also, we talk a lot. (Or hadn’t you noticed?)

Erika’s Last Word – Episode 15

The Name of the Doctor StillThe Name of the Doctor

tl;dr WARNING: Yes, this piece is long.¬† No, I don’t care.¬† It’s the finale, after all!¬† I am full of squee, and I’m closing out this series with a bang!

GALLIFREY!!!!!¬† This is what I yelled (in my head, because I wasn’t watching it alone) right out of the gate.¬† Way to scoop me up and get me stoked!¬† I’m so glad I didn’t give in to my temptation to turn it off right there as I mentioned on the podcast.¬† But I’ve already squeed about seeing the past Doctors with my beloved Clara, so I shouldn’t take up any more space here with that.

Ok, a teeny bit more space:
