Remember our “Who Adjacent” features, where we’d pick a non-DoctorWho property with some Who DNA? Join Deb, Erika, Kat, and Tansy as we talk about Erika’s pick, Neverwhere which has so many relations to Doctor Who they’re practically first cousins. From Peter Capaldi as the Angel Islington to the series being created by a Who actor (Lenny Henry) and a Who writer (Neil Gaiman), there are connections galore, and we dive deep! Just like Neverwhere does under London.
Have you seen Neverwhere? Or read/listened to it? What did you think? Did you notice any Who connections we didn’t mention? Drop us a tweet or let us know in the comments!
Is compassion an indulgence? Join Deb, Erika, and Tansy as they discuss this question in the context of our chat about Davros, the ultimate tech bro. And of course we spend lots of time on Clara, Missy, and the Doctor himself!
How do you feel about “The Magician’s Apprentice” and “The Witch’s Familiar”? Was this your first Doctor Who story, or do you know someone for whom it was Drop us a tweet or let us know in the comments!
This week we reflect on another story that wasn’t a hit right out of the gate. Join Deb, Katrina, Lizbeth, and Lynne as they discuss how they feel about “In the Forest of the Night” lo these several years on. We also get to hear Lynne’s pick for her “hindsight is 2020” episode to revisit.
Have you reflected on “In the Forest of the Night” recently? If so, what did you think? Drop us a tweet or let us know in the comments!
2018 brings another new Verity! feature: Perfect Match, in which a Verity selects a classic Who story and a modern Who story that go together…for whatever reason. Join Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we compare and contrast Tansy’s perfect match: “The Romans” and “The Fires of Pompeii”.
What ties do you see between these two stories? How has storytelling evolved between these two tales, and how does that affect the show? Let us know what you think in the comments!
Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and season’s greetings to all! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we discuss the latest Doctor Who Christmas special–yet another regeneration episode. Who cried? Who didn’t? Who’s not ready to think about the 13th Doctor? Who wants to crash right into the new era? And what did we all think about the themes and execution of “Twice upon a Time”? There’s only one way t find out!
What did you think of this final send-off for so many of the on- and off-screen talent? Let us know in the comments!
It’s time to slow down and get a bit reflective. Inspired by Peter Capaldi’s “farewell tour” at New York Comic Con, Deb, Lynne, and Tansy take a thoughtful look back at Peter Capaldi’s tenure. We discuss the impact he’s had on the show, his legacy and examine his character arc as the 12th Doctor. Sure, we know he has one more story before the serious postmortem’s begin, but we’d rather do this while we can still smile!
What do you think Peter has brought to the role and, more importantly, what do you think his imprint will be on the show? Leave us a comment and let us know what you think!
That’s it. Series 10 is over. None of us are happy to see it go, but many of us are happy about how it went. Join Erika, Katrina, Lynne, and Tansy as we hash over this finale and discuss what we might see (and what we want to see) at Christmas.
How do you think the Doctor fell? Let us know in the comments!
It’s a rare on-location Verity! with an even-rarer special guest! Join Erika, Liz, and returning guest, Caroline Symcox as we discuss part one of the season finale story. It was some intense Doctor Who, and we have some intense reactions to it. We also have some wacky theorizing.
Warning: Wacky theorizing may cause disappointment when the show doesn’t do what the wacky theory said it might. Or, at least, it will if you’re Liz.
How did this part-one-of-two strike you? What are your theories? Tell us in the comments!
