Time for another bit of hindsight. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we discuss Deb’s modern Who pick to look back at, “The Rings of Akhaten”. Fandom really hates this one. And we (mostly) didn’t love it the first time around. Do we now? Have we grown souls (according to Liz)? Listen and see!
Have you revisited this story recently? If so, what did you think, and how did that compare with how you felt about it in the first place? And how do you think this story compares to “Vincent and the Doctor”? Let us know in the comments!
Series 7b might be over, but we’re not done talking about it! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy for an extra-long episode of Verity! We’re talking about a whole (half) series after all, so of course we needed a little extra time. Also, we talk a lot. (Or hadn’t you noticed?)
“The Rings of Akhaten” divided opinion in fandom, and we here at Verity! were no different. Listen as Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy hash it out. Was it dumb? Fun? Or both? Did the Doctor face a massive soul-eating god? Or an ineffectual Great Pumpkin cosplayer? We answer these questions (or at least discuss them) and more!
With new episodes of Doctor Who on the horizon, Deb, Erika, Kat, and Tansy take some time to reminisce about series 7a and speculate about series 7b (not to be confused with serial codes 7A and 7B from “Trial of a Time Lord”). We also discuss costuming, cosplay, the rarity (or not) of watching Doctor Who in order, Big Finish audios, and perhaps most importantly, tapas.
