198 – Time-Flight of (the) Concordes

For this “lucky 7”, we dip into the seventh story of season 19. Join Deb, Erika, and Katrina as we once again punch received fan wisdom right in the face.

What do you think about “Time-Flight” is it as boring and awful as the masses would have you believe? Or is it actually pretty fun? And what was your take on the mourning for Adric and Tegan’s “cliffhanger” departure? Let us know in the comments!

Extra! – 7 Faves from the 1960s

More favourites! Join Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we dip into the 1960s and agonize over our favourite seven stories. This was painful, but nothing was more painful than when one of Erika’s picks seriously broke Liz. Liz has broken more than once on Verity!, but this may bring it to a new level.

What are your 7 faves from the 60s? And did Erika break you too? Let us know in the comments!

197 – The Girl with the Dragonfire Tattoo

It’s back to the Seventh Doctor’s era with Mel’s last story and Ace’s first. Join Deb, Erika, and Lynne as we talk about what works for us and what doesn’t. There’s a healthy detour into age-based gender politics, so buckle up!

What do you think of “Dragonfire”? Do you love the look of it like Deb? Do you un-love the look of it like Erika? Do you adore Ace like Lynne? Are you giving massive side-eye to Mel’s departure scenes like we all are? Let us know in the comments!

Extra! – 7 Faves from the RTD Era

We’re back this week to list more favourites–seven of them each! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lizbeth as we list our seven fave episodes/stories from the Russel T. Davies era. Will we overlap at all? Will there maybe be something we all pick? Listen and see!

What’s your list of faves? Let us know in the comments!

196 – The Ambassadors of Death in Paradise

Season 7 continues with a 7-episode story — like it was tailor-made for our 7&7 series! Join Deb, Erika, and Lizbeth as we discuss this story, which only one of us had already seen in its entirety! (Hint: It was the one of us who WROTE A BOOK ABOUT IT.)

What do you think of this story? Is it cinematic? Boring? Something in between? And did “received fan wisdom” tell you anything about it before you watched? Let us know in the comments!

Extra! – Who Complete Three

We haven’t played “Who Complete Me” since 2017, and it’s high time we brought it back. Sadly, people who search for things on the internet haven’t gotten any less ridiculous since then.

Special thanks to Steve Lutz of Low Definition for inventing this ridiculous game!

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?

What do you think about this ep? Let us know in the comments!
