Verity! Episode 59 – Dark Waterdeep

VerityEpisode59The 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.

Can it be Saturday already please?

Verity! Extra! – In Defense Of… 3 Rounds Rapid

VerityExtraIDO3RounsRapid-210It’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!

Verity! Episode 24 – Three: Some of Us Like Him

VerityEpisode24-300Our 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!

Verity! Episode 20 – Yes! Master

VerityEpisode20-300This 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).
