104 – The End of the World is Unquiet

VerityEpisode104Our sojourn through series 1 continues. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we talk about “The End of the World” and, to a lesser extent, “The Unquiet Dead”. (If you want a more in-depth Verity! discussion about “The Unquiet Dead”, check out episode 83.) We talk about Rose’s first proper outings with the Doctor and what they mean to that burgeoning relationship. And yes, “relationship” can mean many things to many viewers.

How do you feel about these episodes? Have your feelings changed as much as Erika’s? Were you a baby-fan like Deb the first time you watched? And how do you view the interactions of Rose and the Doctor in these early outings? Let us know in the comments!

Ep 83 – The Unquiet Headstrong Companion

VerityEpisode83Our companion miniseries continues! This week Deb picked the story, so join her, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we chat about Rose in “The Unquiet Dead”. It may not be the first story you think of when you think of Rose, but Deb explains why it’s a great pick to demonstrate some of her Roseiest characteristics.

What do you think of “The Unquiet Dead” as a Rose story? Does it display her companionness completely? Or would you pick a different story for her? Let us know in the comments!
