Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

Posts tagged ‘Podcast’

Ep 177 – The Ghost Monument Valley Girls

The second episode of a new Doctor is, in some ways, more meaty and discussable than the first! Join Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we mourn for Deb’s leaky basement and dig deep into all kinds of important aspects of this new era of Doctor Who.

What do you think of the opening credits, music, Doctor, companions, writing, TARDIS, and anything else so far? Let us know in the comments!

Ep 176 – The Women Who Fell to Earth

IT’S FINALLY HERE! NEW DOCTOR WHO! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we gush over the new Doctor and pick apart this first episode. We’re quite pleased overall, but as always, there are some serious issues worth discussing, and discuss them we do!

How are you feeling about the new Doctor, the new “fam”, the new showrunner, the questionable narrative choice(s), the secret pigeon, the term “comfrienion”, and everything else? Let us know in the comments!

Extra! – Liz in the Hot Seat

It’s time for our final “hot seat” of the year! Join Erika and Lynne as we put many questions to Lizbeth, and she answers them all. She mentions lots of very interesting media, so we recommend listening with Google close at hand if you’re interested in chasing down some of her recommendations!

We also announce our new release schedule: for Series 11, we’ll be pushing our podcast-drop-day back by one. Instead of Wednesday morning (North American time), Verity! will be hitting your pod-feeds on Thursday mornings. (Scheduling across five time zones is hard, y’all!)

Ep 174 – A Kicky-Stabby Remembrance

Our final mini-arc continues with Ace, who bashes and ‘splodes her way though “Remembrance of the Daleks”. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lizbeth as we talk about Ace and her baseball bat and the Nitro-9 she’s not carrying.

What do you think of Ace, both in this story and generally? Let us know in the comments!

Ep 173 – Let’s Kicky-Stab Hitler

She may be more “shooty-‘splodey” than kicky stabby here, but River Song is the next focus of our mini arc. Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we talk about “Let’s Kill Hitler” and River (aka Melody, aka Mels) overall.

How do you feel about River in this story? In general? Let us know in the comments!
