Now that the great big two-parter is over, we settle into the rest of series 12. Join Deb, Katrina, and Lizbeth as they chat about messages, character development, monsters, the fam, and much much more.

Two weeks in a row of Doctor Who feels like such a treat! Join Deb, Erika, and Katrina as we discuss whether “Spyfall Part 2” lived up to the amazing ride of part 1 or was a total let-down. These Verities present a range of opinions.

SCHEDULING NOTE: We won’t be dropping a Verity! ep on New Year’s Day because Doctor Who is dropping that day! In order to get a quorum together to talk about it, our ep (like all the series 10 Verity! eps) will drop over the weekend.
There may not be Doctor Who on Christmas Day, but we’re bringing on the Christmas cheer with this special, super-sized “7 Faves” episode. Join ALL of the Verities: Deb, Erika, Katrina, Lizbeth, Lynne, and Tansy as we do a rapid round of Seven Holiday Favorites. There are the usual suspects drawn from modern Who‘s rich tradition of Christmas specials, plus we veer off-piste and draw on Big Finish stories, classic Who canon (that may or may not have the most slight, tenuous grasp to anything remotely holiday-related) Doctor Who spinoffs, and short stories. It’s a mixed bag of holiday(ish) goodness.
What are your favorite Doctor Who holiday stories? Leave us a comment or drop us a tweet and let us know. And don’t forget to enter for a chance to win one of seven Big Finish Audio downloads during our 7th Anniversary Giveaway!
As the holiday season approaches we all have a lot of thoughts about traditions. I think it’s safe to say, however, that this topic probably WON’T be a Verity! tradition, basically because we can’t even agree as to what a tradition IS. But we give it a decent go as Deb, Erika, and Liz talk about their Doctor Who traditions, holiday-related and otherwise. Liz disputes most of it, Erika digs deep and Deb just has a lot of feelings about Elf on the Shelf.

Join Deb, Kat, and Tansy as they reach waaay back to 2011 to re-examine the story that began (ended? landed the middle? it’s hard to tell with peak S6-Moffat) the whole “The Doctor is the most fearsome thing in the Universe” lark. No, I didn’t misspell “arc”. They dive into tropes, power dynamics, issues of morality, the difficulties of (and sexism surrounding) introducing a baby subplot, and how words and titles have meanings. Oh, and how Regency dress and laser guns really really work for us. AND we announce a 7th Anniversary give-away!
How do you feel about this turn in the Doctor mythos? Did you think this was a satisfactory conclusion to The Mystery of River Song? Do you want Tansy to give you a bespoke Big Finish Rec? Leave us a comment or drop us a tweet and let us know!
