Okay, this “7” is a stretch but we made it work. Join Deb, Lynne, and Tansy as we dissect the rollicking, emotional, and devastating story duo of “Army of Ghosts” and “Doomsday”.
We give credit to 8 y.o. RTD (the obvious creator of the Dalek v. Cyberman smackdown) while calling out the emotional manipulation he inflicted upon both Jackie and Rose. But we all come together in our adoration Yvonne Hartman’s confidence (and tailoring) and Mickey Smith’s swagger.
What are your favorite bits of this, literally, epic two-parter? Or was the emotional manipulation just a bit too much? Let us know what you think in the comments!
It’s another “lucky 7”! Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we discuss the seventh episode of series two, “The Idiot’s Lantern”. This story didn’t age as well as some of us hoped, but it does leave us with a lot to talk about.
How do you feel about this episode? Let us know in the comments!
Now that series 10 is over, our year of loves and lasts continues with a love. A lot of love. Two episodes of love, in fact! Join Deb, Erika, and Tansy as we dip back into series 2 with a two-parter that Deb just loves: “The Impossible Planet” and “The Satan Pit”.
Do you love these eps like we do? Do you find the same bits a tad uncomfortable? Other bits? No bits? Let us know in the comments!
It’s high time we started on the love part of our year of love and lasts. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we cover Lynne’s love, “The Girl in the Fireplace”. Liz and Deb do some LJ fanthropology, Erika has a change of heart, and Lynne gushes about France and frocks. Of course we do our usual random-tangent thing too. X-men fighting leprechauns, anyone?
What did (and do) you think of this ep? Do you love it like Lynne or hate it like an old-school Rose/10 shipper? Or somewhere in between? Let us know in the comments!
Lynne is delighted to learn that Chicago TARDIS will welcome Sophie Aldred and Peter Davison to this year’s convention!
We did it! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we discuss the very last first for the year. We’re finishing off series one with “Bad Wolf” and “The Parting of the Ways”. We talk about this two-parter as well as its place in the context of all of new Who as a season-ender, and it gets a little personal as we discuss how Doctor Who has impacted our lives.
What do you think about these two eps? Do you think they’re the best example of RTD’s finales? And how did you take the regeneration? Was it your first? Or was this process old news to you? Let us know in the comments!
Series 1 continues! Join Deb, Erika, and Katrina as we discuss a serious Slitheen, a crowded TARDIS, immature breakups, and more! “Boom Town” tends to be a bit of a forgotten episode, so we tried to give it its due.
How do you feel about this ep? Did you forget about it? Or do you find the personal drama exciting? Let us know in the comments!
Our new-Who rewatch has reached Deb’s personal tipping point into super-fandom. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we discuss feelings and poor choices and schmaltz and glorious 80s hair.
How do you like “Father’s Day”? Did it reach into your heart, give you the feels, and make you a devout fangirl? Or did it confuse you to have all these strange emotions in your Doctor Who? If the latter, has that changed? Let us know in the comments!
It’s Eccleston time again! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we discuss a real workhorse of an episode, “The Long Game”. Adam, the not-quite-companion fails, the Doctor and Rose aren’t the most mature, and we play “we’ll fix it for you” to help Lynne handwave something that bugs her. Then we talk about potato chips. No, really.
What did you think of this one? Did it make an impression? Have you revisited it since the first time you saw it? Let us know in the comments!
Lynne’s collection of Doctor Who DVDs is once again complete, with the purchase of The Underwater Menace!
The first year of new-Who continues with its first two-parter. Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we delve deep (I mean DEEP) into the relationships and characterizations and implications in “Aliens of London” and “World War Three”. Yes, we touch on the farting aliens, but there’s so much more in this story. It’s a bit of an anchor point for the arcs of several of our characters, and we tug hard on that anchor.
In addition, we talk about the importance of libraries (Happy National Library Week!), the Doctor as a soldier, and someone utters the phrase “barfing emotions”. It’s quite a ride.
What do you think of this two-parter? Did the farting aliens or the domesticity turn you off? Or did you enjoy the drama? And is your reaction any different now than the first time you saw this (assuming you have seen it before)? Let us know in the comments!
