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!
We’re back this week to list more favourites–seven of them each! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lizbeth as we list our seven fave episodes/stories from the Russel T. Davies era. Will we overlap at all? Will there maybe be something we all pick? Listen and see!
What’s your list of faves? 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 another bookish Extra! Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we look at another first. This time it’s Russell T Davies’ first published Doctor Who work, his New Adventures novel Damaged Goods. This is another very grown-up-themed tome, and the Verities react as such. Some really enjoy it, others not as much. But as always, it’s a great discussion! (Though we do, necessarily, venture into some rather adult territory in the course of the discussion, so sensitive/young listeners may want to beware.)
Have you read this one? If so, what do you think of it? And can you see any RTD-isms poking up in this early work? Let us know in the comments!
It’s the first official episode of our fourth year! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we start off our year-of-firsts with “Rose”, the first episode of Doctor Who‘s 2005 re-launch! We discuss our thoughts (if any) at the announcement of the show’s return, our reactions to the episode as it aired, and our feelings about it now.
There’s also some fascinating LiveJournal archaeology and at one point, Erika has a “Liz” moment. It’s loads of fun to kick off a new year!
What do you think of “Rose”? And were you excited about the show’s return? Were you nervous? Or did you not even know about it at the time? Let us know in the comments!
This week we get sidetracked (by an infographic, of all things) before we even get started! Once we get that out of our systems, we roll on through our usual happy-Who-things into a well-loved topic. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we talk about the use of mythology in Doctor Who. Tansy waxes poetic about Greek and Arthurian myths, Kat has strong feeling about werewolves, Erika is happy about many things, and Deb manages to not get (too) mad at the internet!
