Ep 162 – Controlled Scene-Chewing from the Pit

Our celebration of David Fisher-penned female villains continues. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Liz as we chat about Lady Adrasta and her cohort Karela. Things get a little bit Snow White and the wicked queen as far as we can tell.

What do you think of this story and these villains? Let us know in the comments!

Extra! – PR1ME Lords

VerityExtraPR1MELordsIt’s April Fools’ Day, so we thought we’d bring you something a bit lighter than usual. Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we discuss the totally-canonical (according to some) PR1ME computer ads Tom Baker and Lalla Ward did in the early 80s. Wait. I should be clearer–Tom and Lalla did these Australian commercials AS the Doctor and Romana. And they are a glorious thing to behold. If you haven’t already seen them, do yourself a favor!

So what do you think of these commercials? Totally canon? Or just totally fun?

Verity! Episode 21 – A Four-tunate Choice?

VerityEpisode21-300Holy cats is this a big week in Verity! We cover the fourth Doctor, we chat about the little things that make us happy in the world of Doctor Who, and one more thing…what was it?…oh yeah, A NEW DOCTOR OMGWTFETC!!!!!!!! (Pardon the textual hysterics, but we’re a little bit excited.)

Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we talk (or in some cases gush) about all of these things, including an in-depth review of Erika’s favorite Doctor Who story of all time, “The Ribos Operation”. It’s a slightly extra-long episode, but in this case, we feel it’s warranted.
