    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!

Join Deb, Erika, and Liz as we talk about Susan's tenure on the show and her place in the pantheon of companions. Does she reverberate throughout the history of the show? Or is she an outlier?

    It's always a party when we have all six Verities in the house! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, Liz, Lynne, and Tansy as we squee and muse and generally chat about series 9. It's tons of fun and less chaotic than you might expect. And as always, we veer into thinky territory as we discuss whether this season really is the most feminist of new Who (or whether it's really feminist at all). There's lots to cover, and we enjoy the heck out of covering it.

    Series 9 has come to a close with quite a bang. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we break down Clara's end, the Doctor's homecoming, gender-flipped regenerations, elegant storytelling, season-ending spectacle, and much more. There's a healthy amount of squee and flail, but not everyone is in hyper-happy mode, so it's a more balanced podcast than you might expect.

    We may not be quite sure whether this is truly the end for Clara, but we all agree that "Face the Raven" is a fantastic story and a great debut by writer Sarah Dollard. Join Deb, Lynne, and Tansy as we evaluate character departures, discuss character motivation, and touch on Steven Moffat's commitment issues. We examine Clara Oswald's arc and try to determine whether she was running toward death or running from grief. We also discuss the themes of morality throughout Series 9 because, why not? (I think it's safe to say we loved this one.)

    What did you think of "Face the Raven"? Do you think Clara met a fitting end or did her death feel too slight or insignificant? Do you think Mayor Me is the other side of the Doctor's morality or just a misguided villain? Let us know in the comments!

    • Deb got a frisson of nostalgia/joy/excitement at hearing the Big Finish Preview for the upcoming tenth Doctor and Donna Noble audios. She also started listening to Unit - Extinction in hopes of resurrecting her Kate Lethbridge-Stewart love.

    While we're not so sure this qualifies as part of a two-parter, we agree it's well worth talking about! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we delve into what it means to be immortal with a human brain, the fabulous chemistry Maisie Williams has with Peter Capaldi, some truly fantastic writing, and lots of fawning over highwaymen (by some of us, at least). It's a squee-filled episode, but not entirely without criticism.

    While we're not so sure this qualifies as part of a two-parter, we agree it's well worth talking about! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we delve into what it means to be immortal with a human brain, the fabulous chemistry Maisie Williams has with Peter Capaldi, some truly fantastic writing, and lots of fawning over highwaymen (by some of us, at least). It's a squee-filled episode, but not entirely without criticism.

    What did you think of "The Woman Who Lived"? Did you dig the highwayman gig? Did you weep at Lady Me's cruelty? Did you roll your eyes at the big kitty in a crown? Let us know in the comments!

    This week we throw out our regularly scheduled topic (or rather, shelve it back into the spreadsheet) and talk about BBC Doctor Who prologues! That's right, the BBC surprised us with some series 9 Capaldi goodness, and we just couldn't hold back. In addition, we cover some of the other internet-only prologue action the BBC has tossed our way over the years. (Note: If you're looking for speculation and a frame-by-frame breakdown, you have come to the wrong podcast, my friend.)

    Oh yeah, and Erika is over the moon because it's not called a "prequel"!

Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we discuss all the companions in "Black Orchid". Lynne does have some strong reasons why Nyssa shines here. Deb thinks it's a stronger Tegan story. And Erika discovers it's her new favorite Adric story. It may be a short story, but with the crowded TARDIS of the fifth Doctor era, there are lots of companions to go around!

    What do you think of this story? Would you have picked a different Nyssa story? Or can you think of other reasons this is a goor one for her? And do you find Adric boring? Charming? Annoying? Let us know in the comments!

Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we discuss Vicki and Steven in "The Time Meddler", their relationship to each other, and their relationships to the Doctor. This is really the first episode of a new type of companion/Doctor team. Not only that, but it's a really interesting episode for the Doctor, and we veer into that territory more than a little.

    This is the first ep in a Verity! miniseries in which we each select a story that displays a compelling Doctor-companion relationship. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we cover Erika's pick, "The Power of Three". The Ponds' penultimate story is rife with companion-based themes--to the detriment of what little plot there is.

    How do you feel about the interactions between the Doctor, Amy, and Rory in "The Power of Three"? Does it give you enough to chew on so that you can ignore the weak story? (Or do you disagree and think the story is amazing?) Let us know in the comments!

    Also covered [links on our site]:

    • Tansy enjoys all the great material that came out of SDCC, including Jenna Coleman on a panel about Women Who Kick Ass!
    • Erika guests on A Madman with a Box (a long time ago)!
    • Liz wishes this Attack of the Giant Clam trailer was for a real movie!
    • Deb
      • thanks everyone who helped us hit both our Patreon commentary goals (voting open until 8/12/15)!
      • looks forward to convention season, especially LI Who!

    That's right, we're talking about the TARDIS again! We discussed her villainous tendencies with Lynne and Tansy last year. Now, join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Liz as we fold the TARDIS into our Year of Companions. We discuss the evolution of the TARDIS on-screen and how the Doctor's treatment of her varies by actor and era.

    What's your favorite Doctor-TARDIS pairing? Do you have a favorite (least favorite?) moment between the Doctor and his "wife"? How do you feel about the blatant personification of the TARDIS in the new series? Let us know in the comments!

    And be sure to head over to our commentary-picking post to help us determine what wonderful Doctor Who goodness we'll jabber all over! We've already hit our first informal Patreon goal of 120 supporters. We'll do a second commentary at 125!
