Verity! Extra! – Pleasant, Unpusillanimous Peri

VerityExtraNicolaBryantNow that new Doctor Who is done for a while, it’s time to bring back the Extras! And we’re kicking them off in style–with an interview! Deb chatted with Nicola Bryant at LI Who, and she had some interesting things to say, both about Big Finish, and about being a female actor through the years.

Before the interview itself, join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we talk about Peri’s evolution throughout the course of her Big Finish appearances. Want to check out Peri in audio form, but don’t know where to start? It will come as no surprise that we have suggestions! (Also favorites!)

Verity! Episode 17 – Six, Six, Six, the Number of Colin Baker?

VerityEpisode17-300And just like that, we’re back to our 50th anniversary countdown of the Doctors, and it’s the sixth Doctor’s turn! Join Deb, Erika, Kat, and Liz as we discuss the delights (or lack thereof) of Colin Baker’s reign as our favorite Time Lord. Or is the Doctor our favorite Time Lord, now that we’ve seen the Rani? That’s right, we’re talking about “The Mark of the Rani”, which at least one of us thought was the most representative story of the sixth Doctor’s run.

Is old Colin as bad as so many folks say he is? Is Peri? Does the Rani now own Deb thoroughly? Should we have covered “Timelash” instead? We don’t actually agree on most of these things, but boy howdy do we have a good time talking about them!
