Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

195 – Fly to the Angels Take Manhattan

This week we’re back to series 7a, and we finish it off! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we discuss the final episode with Amy and Rory. Is it a well-constructed send-off? Does it even make sense? Do we really care? Are the feels more important?

191 – A Town Called Mercy Moseys

We’re back to series 7A! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we try to stay awake and chat about “A Town Called Mercy”. Are we tired because this story moves a bit slowly? No. But that didn’t help.

188 – Soul Asylum of the Daleks

We start off our year of sevens with the first story in series 7a. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we discuss “Asylum of the Daleks”. Sure there are Daleks, but there’s relationship angst, and we really dig into that, which should surprise nobody.

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. 🙂 (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!
