    Our trip through classic season one is back to moving pictures! Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we cover Terry Nation's eclectic 6-parter, "The Keys of Marinus". There's a lot to love and some to not-love. Listen and see who thinks which parts are which!

    How do you feel about this story? Do you love its fairy-tale nature and the multiple adventures? Or do you think it drags? If the latter, which parts drag? We're super-curious to know, so please tell us in the comments!

    It's a rare Verity! two-hander! Join Erika and Lynne as we chat about Doctor Who's first female director Paddy Russell, specifically, her final story "Horror of Fang Rock". Turns out there are a number of reasons this story works as a "first", so we're still well within our annual theme. Totally. Really.

    What do you think of "Fang Rock" and Paddy's direction? Do you find it as atmospheric and moody and delightful as we do? Or do you think it's a lot of talking in small rooms? Let us know in the comments!

Not for the first time, Erika and Kat go against received fan wisdom and are lukewarm at best toward this story. Good thing Deb is here to balance things out.

    Direct Podcast Download

    It's an audio-based Extra! this week! Join Deb, Erika, and Liz as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the first televised appearance of the 8th Doctor by talking about his first audio appearance! That's right, it's Storm Warning. And because we love Big Finish so much, we digress a LOT and talk about many other Big Finish stories we love--whether they include 8 or not. When it comes to DW audios, it's near-impossible to keep us on track, and we're A-OK with that!

    Have you heard Storm Warning? If so, what do you think of it? And do you think it's a good starting place for a new BF listener? Let us know in the comments!

    Back to new Who series 1! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we talk about Rob Shearman's resurrection of the Doctor's most iconic enemy, the Daleks. We do a little "fanthropology" and talk about how we each felt watching this story when it first aired and whether we feel any different now. It was a turning-point episode for some of us, but does it live up to the memories? Listen and see!

    Time for another first-based Extra! (Which is sadly sans-Deb--damn real world!) Join Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we talk about Chris Chibnall's first foray into the televised Doctor Who universe. It's not an ep of DW, however. The first he wrote was the second episode of Torchwood, "Day One". It's a solid start that gets the series rolling with lots of delicious character interaction and provides much-needed visibility for bisexual people. That's our story and we're sticking to it.

    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 41 minutes and 11 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    We are all over the map this week! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Liz as we discuss all sorts of interesting Doctor Who goodness.

    First, we dump our "happy thing" segment and break our no-news rule because the announcement of a new companion is a Big Deal! We're excited about having a new face in the TARDIS, but the level of excitement varies wildly between Verities.

    Next, we continue our run through classic season 1 with "The Edge of Destruction". It's a fascinating set piece that delves into the characters of our first TARDIS team in a spooky and often disturbing way. Chillingly delightful!

    Finally, we touch on our first missing story, "Marco Polo". There are oodles of ways to consume this one, and we all did it differently. We compare various methods and talk about the story itself. Opinions vary on this one even more than they do on the new companion.

    Oh, and in addition to all that, we're doing another Verity! GIVEAWAY! If you need some cool fan merch, Redbubble is the place for you, and we're giving away a $25 gift certificate. To enter, just head over to the Giveaway Post and leave a comment before Friday, May 6th! (NOTE: If you're one of our amazing, intelligent, attractive Patreon supporters, you're entered automatically!)

    As for the comments section here, let us know what you think of Bill, "The Edge of Destruction", "Marco Polo", your favorite Doctor Who comedy podcasts, and whatever else we touched on. We're all ears!

    The first year of new-Who continues with its first two-parter. Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we delve deep (I mean DEEP) into the relationships and characterizations and implications in "Aliens of London" and "World War Three". Yes, we touch on the farting aliens, but there's so much more in this story. It's a bit of an anchor point for the arcs of several of our characters, and we tug hard on that anchor.

    In addition, we talk about the importance of libraries (Happy National Library Week!), the Doctor as a soldier, and someone utters the phrase "barfing emotions". It's quite a ride.

    What do you think of this two-parter? Did the farting aliens or the domesticity turn you off? Or did you enjoy the drama? And is your reaction any different now than the first time you saw this (assuming you have seen it before)? Let us know in the comments!

  • 106 - Terror of the Accents

    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 27 minutes and 22 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    After 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.

    What do you think? Let us know in the comments!

    It's another Verity! interview! Deb and Erika do a brief intro for Deb's on-stage interview with Katy Manning from LI Who! Katy is even more delightful in person than Jo is on screen. And that's saying something. Hear about...

    • The time Katy asked Jon Pertwee "What would we do if we didn't have any arms?"
    • Katy's fashion advice: "If you're going to wear a mini-skirt, you must get matching knickers."
    • General observations on life: "That's kind of what life is you know. You're a mom, you're making a lampshade, but also you're writing a really filthy rap song."
    • And this: "I've got a collector's mouth." (Yes, she explains this, but you'll have to listen to hear what she means.)

    We're back to 60s Who this week with the next installment of season 1. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we talk about all seven parts of "The Daleks". We chat about how they compare to their modern counterparts, TARDIS team-building, praise for info-text, and the social context of a really rather dark story. Also Lynne has a cold and Liz hates the nickname "P-Cap".

    How do you feel about "The Daleks"? Do you recommend watching it all in one go like Erika did? Do you prefer the Peter Cushing film? Do you agree that Barbara is "made of awesome"? Let us know in the comments!

    We went there. Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we delve into the deep past of Mark Gatiss' scripted Doctor Who work for our "year of firsts". It may not be the tightest, flashiest DW-related production ever, but we manage to tease out some Gatissisms that recur later. We do our darnedest to stay positive! And even succeed to some extent.

    Have you seen P.R.O.B.E. - The Zero Imperative? What did you think? Did it quench your need for Who in a time without it? Or did the all-star cast distract you too much to pay much attention to the spooky story?

    We've touched on it before, but in our year of firsts, we thought it worth revisiting--where do you recommend people start watching Doctor Who? And how can folks (especially in the US) find it to watch? Join Deb Erika, and Tansy as we dive deep into both halves of this tricky equation. There are many different strategies to get folks to join us in loving Doctor Who, but there are few ways to watch it--and even fewer now that Hulu and Netflix in the US have lost all DW titles.

  • Extra! - Continuity Errors

    20 January 2016 (12:30pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 33 minutes and 1 second

    Welcome to our first "first" Extra! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we dip back in time to look at Steven Moffat's first official contribution to the world of Doctor Who. It's a short story called "Continuity Errors", originally published in the Decalog 3: Consequences collection. We find lots of very familiar ideas and spend some delightful time comparing these elements to elements of his televised stories.

    Have you read "Continuity Errors"? If so, what did you think? Did you recognize many of the same tropes you've seen on TV? Or did you read it first and recognize his televised stories as similar to this? Let us know in the comments!

    It's the first official episode of our fourth year! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we start off our year-of-firsts with "rose", the first episode of Doctor Who's 2005 re-launch! We discuss our thoughts (if any) at the announcement of the show's return, our reactions to the episode as it aired, and our feelings about it now.

    There's also some fascinating LiveJournal archaeology and at one point, Erika has a "Liz" moment. It's loads of fun to kick off a new year!

    What do you think of "Rose"? And were you excited about the show's return? Were you nervous? Or did you not even know about it at the time? Let us know in the comments!
