Episode 129 – The Doctor as a Valentine

verityepisode129No, we’re not talking about the Black Guardian, it’s (just past) Valentine’s Day! Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we celebrate the holiday-of-love by discussing the Doctor as a romantic figure. Not all of us are equally comfortable with that notion, but as always, that leads to a fascinating discussion.

What are your thoughts on the Doctor as a heart-throb? Let us know in the comments!

Verity! Episode 64 – Dark, Dangerous Doctor

VerityEpisode64This week sees the last entry in our year of villains. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we chat about one of the most interesting villains of them all. Who could it be? Why, it’s the Doctor himself! There are more than a few times our beloved “hero” does things that are far less-than-heroic. We talk about a number of examples, why they are (or aren’t) really villainous, and even slide into a conversation about the nature of evil! Deep stuff. Sorta.

What do you think about the Doctor as a villain? Let us know in the comments.

Verity! Episode 61 – Permission to Squeeeeeeee (About Series 8)

VerityEpisode61Now that it’s all over, we look back at Series 8 as a whole. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, Liz, and Tansy as we discuss the characters and themes that made series 8 what it was. We didn’t love everything, and (of course) we didn’t all love the same things. But we (again, of course) find plenty to chew over after this, one of the most challenging series of Doctor Who to date.

What did you think of S8? Did it hang together well? Was it inconsistent? Was it consistently disappointing? Always awesome? Or somewhere in between? And perhaps most importantly, how much did you love Capaldi (and his hair)?
