200 – Frontier in Space Jam

Happy 200th numbered episode! Join Deb, Erika, and Tansy as we cover why this really isn’t our 200th podcast and why we decided to “celebrate” by covering a seemingly-random season 10 episode!

What do you think about “Frontier in Space”? Are you a big Jo fan? Love the Master? Have thoughts on the Doctor’s hair? Let us know in the comments!

116 – Spearheading a New Era


Once again we dip into Classic Who with an episode steeped in firsts. Join Deb, Erika, Kat and Tansy as they revisit “Spearhead From Space” and talk about the first Third Doctor story, the first Liz Shaw story, the first Doctor Who in color and more! Listen as Deb and Tansy squee, Erika (shockingly) discovers that she actually likes a Pertwee story and Kat being amused at the mayhem.

How does “Spearhead from Space” fare in your Classic Who rankings? Do you feel this is a good jumping off point for Classic Who or do you think this story is an outlier. Can you identify Mr. Seely’s accent and WHAT is up with those tan lines?

Leave us a comment and let us know what you think!

106 – Terror of the Accents

VerityEpisode106After last week’s delightful interview with Katy Manning, we thought it a perfect time to cover Jo Grant’s first outing. Join Deb, Katrina, Liz, Lynne, and Tansy as they discuss”Terror of the Autons”, which was not only Jo’s first story, but the Master’s, as well as what many call the first real “UNIT family” story. Some even argue it’s the genesis of a budding romance between the Master and the Doctor…

Tansy is on Valium, Liz forgets her intro, and Kat gets to talk about punk rock. A good time is had by all! And of course, it wouldn’t be a Verity! ep if the Verities didn’t take a sweet tangent into social issues. This time it’s an examination of accents and the class systems of various countries.

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.
