Episode 148 – The Master, Revisited

Yes, we did already talk about the Master, but now that Missy is here, it’s a whole new conversation! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we talk about the vast and interesting history of this character and their interactions with the Doctor.

Who’s your favorite Master? Why? And what do you think has been most consistent/most off-the-rails about them? Let us know in the comments!

106 – Terror of the Accents

VerityEpisode106After last week’s delightful interview with Katy Manning, we thought it a perfect time to cover Jo Grant’s first outing. Join Deb, Katrina, Liz, Lynne, and Tansy as they discuss”Terror of the Autons”, which was not only Jo’s first story, but the Master’s, as well as what many call the first real “UNIT family” story. Some even argue it’s the genesis of a budding romance between the Master and the Doctor…

Tansy is on Valium, Liz forgets her intro, and Kat gets to talk about punk rock. A good time is had by all! And of course, it wouldn’t be a Verity! ep if the Verities didn’t take a sweet tangent into social issues. This time it’s an examination of accents and the class systems of various countries.

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

Verity! Episode 20 – Yes! Master

VerityEpisode20-300This week a slightly smaller Verity! crew tackles the Master (but not literally–except maybe in Deb’s dreams). Join Deb, Erika, and Tansy as we cover the different iterations of the Doctor’s arch enemy–from the classy to the crazy and everything in between. See who likes which Master. Find out which Master none of us likes (you can probably guess). Decide for yourself if Delgado’s Master is the same as Peter Pratt’s (we don’t agree).
