Ep 187 – Resolution OF THE DALEKS

Happy New Year to one and all! Especially happy because we have some current Doctor Who to discuss! Jon Deb, Erika, and Tansy as we dig into this “Resolution” of series 11.

What did you think about this ep? Was it a better finale than the previous episode? Did you miss the Daleks? Let us know in the comments!

Ep 186 – A Very Different Sort of Season

We have reached the end of Jodie Whittaker’s first season as the Doctor. Join Deb, Erika, Lizbeth, and Tansy as we talk about the series as a whole — the arc-or-not, the villains-or-not, the development-or-not, the consequences-or-not, and much more. We liked a lot, we questioned some of it, and as usual, we don’t all agree on the details but have a delightful time breaking it down.

What are your overall thoughts on series 11? Did they play it too safe? Is the Doctor too perfect? Do you want some classic monsters next season? Let us know in the comments!

Ep 185 – The Last Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos

Yes. That is really what this episode is called. Join Deb, Erika, and Lynne as we stumble over the title, and possibly stumble a bit over the episode itself–or at least, over this as a “finale”.

What did you think of “The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos” as a finale for this series? Or even just as an episode itself? Let us know in the comments!

Ep 184 – Calgon: It Takes You Away

This weird and froggy episode may not have landed perfectly for all of us, but we find a lot to say. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lizbeth as we dive through the looking glass and into Norway. There’s a lot to cover, but really, it’s all about the sandwich.

Ep 182 – Kerblam!!

It’s a very special episode of Verity! Why? Not just because today’s Doctor Who episode has an exclamation point just like we do — it’s also because we have three Verities in the same room to do a hot-take style review! Join Deb, Erika, and Katrina as we give our pretty much immediate reactions to this week’s episode.

Ep 181 – Angels and Demons of the Punjab

Golly, another lovely-but-heavy episode of Doctor Who. Join Erika, Lizbeth, and Tansy as we dig into this historical-with-aliens. We talk about the history of history in the show, the use (or not) of religion, and much, much, much more! (We did miss having Deb to wrangle us and keep us on track.)

Ep 180 – The Tsuranga Conundrummer

Spaceship! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as the rest of us try to talk Deb into liking this story more than she did on first viewing. We can all agree that Astos is pretty awesome and we look forward to more Yaz, but that might be it…

What did you think of this story? Was it your favourite of the season like it was for some of the Verities? Or did it leave you wanting more? Let us know in the comments!

Ep 179 – Arachnids in the UK Time Zone

Arachnophobes beware! This ep was full of creepy-crawlies. Join Deb, Erika, Lizbeth, and  Lynne as we talk about our reactions to spiders, companion balance, visions of dead wives, and more.

Ep 176 – The Women Who Fell to Earth

IT’S FINALLY HERE! NEW DOCTOR WHO! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we gush over the new Doctor and pick apart this first episode. We’re quite pleased overall, but as always, there are some serious issues worth discussing, and discuss them we do!

How are you feeling about the new Doctor, the new “fam”, the new showrunner, the questionable narrative choice(s), the secret pigeon, the term “comfrienion”, and everything else? Let us know in the comments!
