Ep 171 – A Perfect Anniversary Match

It’s time for another “perfect match”! Join Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we dig into Kat’s excellent choices: “The Five Doctors” and “The Day of the Doctor”. That pairing seems so obvious now that Kat pointed it out! We delve into the function of anniversary specials and multi-Doctor stories and take a look at how they work both then and now.

What do you think about these two stories? Any echoes we didn’t have time to mention that you want to make sure get some love? Tell us in the comments!

Verity! Episode 31 – More Anniversaries (Than You Can Shake a Sonic At)

VerityEpisode31-300Just when you thought we were done with Anniversary Mania…we jump right back in! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we reminisce about the televised anniversary specials of days gone by. There have been a lot of official celebrations of our beloved show. Some were great (according to most of us), and some were…less than that (according to most of us). Who’s not so keen on “The Five Doctors”? Who is super-duper keen on “Dimensions in Time”? Listen and see!
