    It's another bookish Extra! Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we look at another first. This time it's Russell T Davies' first published Doctor Who work, his New Adventures novel Damaged Goods. This is another very grown-up-themed tome, and the Verities react as such. Some really enjoy it, others not as much. But as always, it's a great discussion! (Though we do, necessarily, venture into some rather adult territory in the course of the discussion, so sensitive/young listeners may want to beware.)

    Have you read this one? If so, what do you think of it? And can you see any RTD-isms poking up in this early work? Let us know in the comments!

Join Deb, Erika, Kat and Tansy as they revisit "Spearhead From Space" and talk about the first Third Doctor story, the first Liz Shaw story, the first Doctor Who in color and more! Listen as Deb and Tansy squee, Erika (shockingly) discovers that she actually likes a Pertwee story and Kat being amused at the mayhem.

    How does "Spearhead from Space" fare in your Classic Who rankings? Do you feel this is a good jumping off point for Classic Who or do you think this story is an outlier. Can you identify Mr. Seely's accent and WHAT is up with those tan lines?

    It's a book Extra! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as they discuss the very first Virgin New Adventures novel, Timewyrm: Genesys. It was the first time through for half of us, the other half of the Verities were revisiting it. While it may not be everyone's cup of tea, and may have a seriously high "ick factor", we're all pleased with the existence of the whole novel range. And we spend a good amount of time chatting about that as well.

    Are you a fan of the NAs? Have you revisited them and discovered issues you didn't see the first time through? Or did you never get into them in the first place? Let us know in the comments! We're intensely curious about this!
