209 – Nightmare in Silver Nemesis

It’s back to the 7th Doctor’s era for another 7&7 chat. Join Deb, Erika, and Liz as we talk about Doctor Who‘s 25th anniversary story, “Silver Nemesis”. AKA, “Remembrance of the Daleks…Again”.

208 – 7 Nation Army of Ghosts/Doomsday Tripper

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!

193 – The Idiot’s Lantern Down for What

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!

Episode 146 – The Pit of the Impossible Satan Planet

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!

Episode 128 – Lynne’s Love: Frocks and Fireplaces

verityepisode128It’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!

125 – Genocide of the Daleks

verityepisode125We 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!

121 – Booming the Town

verityepisode121Series 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!
