Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

Posts tagged ‘Steven Moffat’

Eight – Not Enough

In this week’s “Reference Acknowledged”, Deb, Kat, and Lynne discuss the Eighth Doctor’s impact on fandom, how and why he was brought into “canon”, and the importance of naming Big Finish Companions during “The Night of the Doctor.” Thanks to Christian Smith for this week’s topic suggestion. We are ALWAYS happy to talk about the Eighth Doctor!

This week’s “year of…” title credited to Trevor S!

As a reminder, many Big Finish titles are available on streaming service so if you’re curious and want to check them out (and we suggest you do!), a quick search may grab you free Big Finish content. Warning: Big Finish is highly addictive and may result in you purchasing many many more titles but we don’t see this as a bad thing!

Episode 236 – Chasing Amy’s Choice (Again)

It’s Kat’s turn in the hindsight-seat. Join Deb, Katrina, and Tansy as they take another look at “Amy’s Choice” to see how they feel about it after all this time. (And yes, I know I’m re-using a title, but it’s a good one.)

Episode 235 – In the Heat of The Night of the Doctor

Episode 229 – Do Blink

Time for more hindsight. Join Deb, Erika, and Katrina as we dip back and see if “Blink” is really all that or if our views have changed over the years.

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? How do you feel about it as a Doctor Who intro story? And has that changed? Let us know in the comments!

195 – Fly to the Angels Take Manhattan

This week we’re back to series 7a, and we finish it off! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we discuss the final episode with Amy and Rory. Is it a well-constructed send-off? Does it even make sense? Do we really care? Are the feels more important?
