Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

Ep 170 – Warriors’ Gate Against Guns

Back in March, we were proud to participate in the Who Against Guns movement. We helped other Doctor Who podcasters raise over $20,000 to support gun control. In the course of that effort, several donors won rewards from the participating podcasts. Our winner, Dr. Thomas Rodebaugh, asked us to talk about one of his favorite DW stories, “Warriors’ Gate”. Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we dig into this incredibly juicy story.

Episode 159 – A Perfect (Roman) Match

2018 brings another new Verity! feature: Perfect Match, in which a Verity selects a classic Who story and a modern Who story that go together…for whatever reason. Join Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we compare and contrast Tansy’s perfect match: “The Romans” and “The Fires of Pompeii”.

What ties do you see between these two stories? How has storytelling evolved between these two tales, and how does that affect the show? Let us know what you think in the comments!
