Yes, we assure you this really is episode 74. Pay no attention to the wildly inaccurate introduction claiming we’ve gotten further than we have. This is what happens when Deb leaves us alone. Join Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we try to cope without our moderating maven. And what are we discussing? We stick to our 2015 theme of companions, but we take it in a different direction this week. We’re talking about the companions of a different Time Lord. Yep, from Delgado to Gomez, we’re covering the Master’s (Missy’s) companions! Why does the Master always seem to have lackeys assisting him? We discover the Master’s reasons for picking up strays aren’t always that different from the Doctor’s, though his methods of acquiring these “helpers” is usually quite different.
What do you think of the Master’s companions? Let us know in the comments!
The season finale has finally arrived! Or part one of it has, anyway. It’s safe to say that most of the Verities are preeeeety excited about it. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we enthusiastically flail and squee and jabber about all there is to love and speculate about “Dark Water”. There’s a lot to chew on here. There’s also a bit of a Skype lag, which causes some simultaneous talking, but that doesn’t stop us from gleefully recounting our favorite bits and examining what (we think) is going on.
What did you think about “Dark Water”? We know the response wasn’t entirely positive, and as always, we’re interested in all your opinions! (As long as they’re phrased kindly and don’t insult those who disagree, anyway. Of course, you guys are awesome and pretty much always stick to that!) So please leave a comment and let us know what you thought of these revelations and why.
It’s been a while, but once again, we’re making good on our promise to defend Doctor Who. Those bits you think are dodgy? We’ll find something good in ’em–even if it kills us. Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy for our most ridiculous Extra! yet. Deb springs a last-minute rules change on us, and it results in consternation and hilarity. Can the Verities keep their defenses to two minutes? (EXACTLY two minutes!) Listen and see!
Our countdown of the Doctors has reached it’s antepenultimate entry. Whether you were looking forward to it or not, it’s Jon Pertwee time! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we discuss the pros and cons of the most dapper of Doctors. We also spend a good amount of time talking about Jo and the Master, and we even manage to detour into UK politics of the 70s. And as usual, there is much friendly disagreement!
This week a slightly smaller Verity! crew tackles the Master (but not literally–except maybe in Deb’s dreams). Join Deb, Erika, and Tansy as we cover the different iterations of the Doctor’s arch enemy–from the classy to the crazy and everything in between. See who likes which Master. Find out which Master none of us likes (you can probably guess). Decide for yourself if Delgado’s Master is the same as Peter Pratt’s (we don’t agree).
