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?

188 – Soul Asylum of the Daleks

We start off our year of sevens with the first story in series 7a. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we discuss “Asylum of the Daleks”. Sure there are Daleks, but there’s relationship angst, and we really dig into that, which should surprise nobody.

Ep 81 – A Powerful Three

VerityEpisode81This is the first ep in a Verity! miniseries in which we each select a story that displays a compelling Doctor-companion relationship. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we cover Erika’s pick, “The Power of Three”. The Ponds’ penultimate story is rife with companion-based themes–to the detriment of what little plot there is.

How do you feel about the interactions between the Doctor, Amy, and Rory in “The Power of Three”? Does it give you enough to chew on so that you can ignore the weak story? (Or do you disagree and think the story is amazing?) Let us know in the comments!
