Planet of Fire the TCE

Hold me closer, tiny Master! Join Deb, Erika, and Lynne as we discuss another Fifth Doctor story and dive into the history of the Master’s favourite toy, the tissue compression eliminator. This story also sees the departure of one companion and the arrival of another!

Warriors of the Deep Dive

We kick of our as-yet-unnamed 2022 theme with a look at Sea Devils! Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we discuss this Fifth Doctor “workplace tragedy” and the Doctor’s general history with the Sea Devils and their cousins the Silurans. 

How do you feel about “Warriors of the Deep”? Does your “cringe memory” make you hate it? Or do you think it’s just fine? Love the Myrka? Hate the lighting? Drop us a tweet or let us know in the comments!

And if you have ideas for deep-dive topics for this year, pop a comment on the post for our 2022 theme announcement!

We Sing in Praise of The King’s Demons

It’s Tansy’s turn in the Comfort Who driver’s seat! Join Deb, Erika, Kat, and Tansy as we talk about the ever-delightful “King’s Demons”. Received fan wisdom is just straight-up wrong once again. (Except maybe about Kamelion. Maybe.)

Is this story a comfort for you? Why or why not? Drop us a tweet or let us know in the comments!

Verity! Episode 19 – Doctor 5 Is Alive!

VerityEpisode19-300The classic Doctor countdown continues! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we discuss the Peter Davison era–the Doctor, the companions, the stories, the relationships, and of course, the costumes. And all of these things in relation to this week’s “representative” episode, “Mawdryn Undead”.

Who loves Doctor number five? Who loves the companions? Who thinks the companions love each other? Who doesn’t? If you’ve been listening a while, some of those answers may be obvious,  but perhaps not all!
