    It's official! We have a new Doctor! And she's a SHE. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we dive into our reactions to this truly momentous news. There were many tears, though not for all the same reasons.

    But we won't see Jodie Whittaker in the role for months. And then after that, it'll be a lotta months before we get the next series. In our second timey-wimey segment we talk about what we're gonna do to fill those lonely, Who-less months. "Shadow cabinet of spreadsheets," anyone?

    How do you feel about Whittaker's impending Doctorhood? And what will you be doing while we wait for the new Doctor and new series? Let us know in the comments!

    28 June 2017 (11:30am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 0 minutes and 40 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    It's a rare on-location Verity! with an even-rarer special guest! Join Erika, Liz, and returning guest, Caroline Symcox as we discuss part one of the season finale story. It was some intense Doctor Who, and we have some intense reactions to it. We also have some wacky theorizing.

    Warning: Wacky theorizing may cause disappointment when the show doesn't do what the wacky theory said it might. Or, at least, it will if you're Liz.

    How did this part-one-of-two strike you? What are your theories? Tell us in the comments!

    21 June 2017 (11:30am GMT)
    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 9 minutes and 38 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    What a fascinating discussion this week's Doctor Who episode lends itself to. Join Deb, Erika, and Tansy as we discuss women who are allowed to fail and still be heroes, the sexual politics of Romans, the Doctor's (possible?) impatience, Bill's outlook on history and its denizens, Nardole as a "space tourist", and much more.

    Erika, of all people, even has a cracktastic fan theory about the next season of the show. Incredibly unlikely, but kinda fun, depending on your outlook.

    What did you think about this story? Was it slight? Were the stakes high? Was the monster the point? Was the doctor impatient or irritable or something else? What's up with Missy? SO MANY QUESTIONS. Please feel free to play in the comment section like it's one big happy fandom sandbox.

    ^E

    Direct Podcast Download

    Low expectations may have helped, but all three Verities enjoyed this ep to varying degrees. Join Deb, Erika, and Katrina as we talk about what we liked and, of course, the few things we didn't. There was some definite "iffy" territory to cover as well.

    What did you think of "Empress of Mars"? Was it rollicking, fanservicey fun? Did it make you uncomfortable from a representational perspective? Possibly both? Does the title need a definitive article? Let us know in the comments!

    There's been a lot of agreement on the podcast as of late, but that ends today! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Liz as we disagree over whether this story worked and how many episodes it really should have been. At least there's consensus on Peter Capaldi's hair and Pearl Mackie.

    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 15 minutes and 38 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    It's another Verity! three-hander, but we soldier on to dig into this "meaty" episode. Join Deb, Erika, and Tansy as we talk about consent--as it relates to our feelings about the word as well as world politics. We speculate about a possible impending reset button (or not?). And there's an awful lot of squee. Not all of it is related to the episode itself. Spreadsheets, man. Spreadsheets.

    Did you enjoy this episode? Did you also feel our discomfort at the use of "consent"? Do you think there's a reset in our future? Let us know in the comments!

    Direct Podcast Download

    After a mind-bendy episode of Doctor Who, we need to talk it through to really come to terms with us. Join Deb, Erika, and Tansy as we do just that. What was real? What did it mean? What did it portend for the future? What's the deal with Nardole? And who's really in the vault? We answer...maybe one of these questions. Maybe.

    What did you think of "Extremis"? And all those other things? Let us know in the comments!

    This week's "last" is a goodbye to a companion we're all quite fond of, Steven Taylor (not to be confused with Steven Tyler). Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we marvel at the excellence of this story, the excellence of Dodo in it, the excellence of Steven's reason for leaving the TARDIS, and the total lack of excellence in the general amount of fandom discussion surrounding this story.

  • Our First Repeat! - Episode 46 - Communication Breakdown

    25 January 2017 (12:30pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 19 minutes and 22 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Because of the emotional ups and (mostly downs) of the last week in the world, the Verities did not have it in them to do a podcast--about love or anything else. Instead, we're releasing our first re-run. Join Deb and Erika as we give a short intro explaining why we've chosen to re-release this particular episode. At this time in history, we feel it's really important.

    The conversation Deb talks about in the intro starts at 49:12, so feel free to skip to that if you only want to hear the truly relevant bit. We hope you enjoy!

    As always, comments are welcome--especially messages of hope, perseverance, and love.

    As published July 16, 2014

    This week we do lots of talking about villains who don't. Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we discuss what makes silent villains so creepy and effective. We also discover just how many Moffat-baddies are non-talkers (or mostly non-talkers). And do stick around for a particularly interesting tangent about gender roles and power dynamics in communication. This Verity! ep gets positively analytical! Almost scholarly! Almost.

    And of course, let us know who your favorite quiet killers are-or weigh in on the deeper debate about communication in general. Or both!

    Episode Duration: 22 minutes and 10 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    It's a short, intimate Extra! today. Join Deb and Erika as we introduce our topic for 2017. We'll be mirroring 2016's theme of "firsts" by talking about "lasts" and endings. We'll talk about the final appearances of companions, Doctors, behind-the-scenes folks, and possibly other items! But we don't want a year of downers (let's face it, many goodbyes are sad sad sad), so we're balancing that with the theme of "love". We'll also talk about love in Doctor Who as well as things we love about it!

    And of course, we'll be talking about series 10 when that airs. Hooray for new episodes of our show!

    What firsts and loves would you like to hear us yammer on about? Let us know in the comments!

    Here's to a happy 2017 for all of us!
