  • Ep 67 - The First Ladies of Doctor Who

    28 January 2015 (12:30pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 19 minutes and 40 seconds

    Ok, it's finally time to talk about "proper" companions (whatever that means). Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Liz as we talk about the companions that started (and re-started) it all. We're focusing on Susan, Grace, and Rose--the ladies who ushered in each "era" of Doctor Who. We find more parallels than you might expect (certainly more than some of us expected!).

    What do you think of these "first" companions? Let us know in the comments!

    That's right! We're back with another edition of In Defence Of! (And yes, now that I live in Canada, I've started spelling it with a "c". Sometimes.) Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we try (oh golly do we try) to defend the topics and concepts our dear sweet CRUEL listeners have suggested. "Dimensions in Time"? The eyebrow agenda? The Dalek episodes with the pig people? And even more! This wasn't easy, but it sure as heck was fun!

  • Ep 66 - Companions Who Never Were

    14 January 2015 (12:30pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 16 minutes and 10 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Our year of companions kicks off in delightful style! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we discuss those Doctor Who characters who were almost companions--those who were slated to become TARDIS travelers but never did, as well as those who we wish had stuck around. Deb accidentally invents a new word*. Kat is thoroughly predictable. Erika unabashedly cheats. And Tansy has a list!

    Which guest stars do you wish had become full-time companions? Let us know in the comments!

    *comfanion, noun; a Doctor Who character not generally considered a companion of the Doctor, but whom a viewer loves so much, they think should have been. The viewer may even argue against popular opinion, claiming their favorite *is* a companion. (Examples: "Bret Vyon is my favorite companion." "He was only in one story! He's a comfanion, at best." -- "Sally Sparrow is my favorite comfanion. I wish the Doctor would've invited her onto the TARDIS.")

    • Erika appreciates Paul Cornell's 11th Blog of Christmas!
    • Kat receives a teeny tiny sonic screwdriver book! (book not sold separately)
    • Tansy is an emotional wreck after reaching the end of Hex's Big Finish run.
    • Deb
      • Looks forward to new Big Finish audios featuring Bernice Summerfield and Sutekh!

    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 39 minutes and 57 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Happy holidays one and all! This week it's an oversized celebration, as we have all six Verities onboard for this ep! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, Liz, Lynne, and Tansy as we celebrate the season by talking about the last new Doctor Who episode we'll have for a while. It's mostly Christmas cheer all up in here, so if you're looking for a good rant, you're (mostly) in the wrong place. We talk Capaldi, Clara, Danny, Santa, and more!

    What did you think of this year's Christmas outing? Was it Santastic? Or ho-ho-horrible? Let us know in the comments!

    It's been a great year here at Verity! Thanks to everyone for listening, supporting, and taking part in the conversation!

    • Tansy's family, too, got DW swag, including Dalek hats and Dalek Risk!
    • Liz got tickets to the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular in May!
    • Erika got to reminisce about Calgary Expo 2013 because Steven's interviews w/Sylvester McCoy and the Torchwood cast are now online!
    • Deb got herself the current, awesome, (Big Finish) Humble Doctor Who Audiobook Bundle (dozens of titles, pay what you want, and help a good charity)!

    This week sees the last entry in our year of villains. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we chat about one of the most interesting villains of them all. Who could it be? Why, it's the Doctor himself! There are more than a few times our beloved "hero" does things that are far less-than-heroic. We talk about a number of examples, why they are (or aren't) really villainous, and even slide into a conversation about the nature of evil! Deep stuff. Sorta.

    What do you think about the Doctor as a villain? Let us know in the comments.

    Direct Podcast Download

    The year is almost over, but there's still time to finish out our year of villains in style! Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we talk about the times when the TARDIS has crossed over to the dark side--or seemed to. Or at least acted a little tetchy. Okay, so we realize "villain" is a bit of a strong word, but there were certainly times the TARDIS was antagonistic. And we cover a lot of examples! Here's a list of (I think) all the stories we talk about in this ep:

    • The Edge of Destruction
    • The Daleks' Master Plan
    • The Mind Robber
    • Logopolis
    • Castrovalva
    • Frontios
    • The TV Movie
    • Boom Town
    • The Lodger
    • The Doctor's Wife
    • Let's Kill Hitler
    • Hide
    • Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS
    • Big Finish:
      • The Settling
      • Zagreus

    What other examples can you think of? Let us know in the comments. And let us know what you think of the TARDIS as a "baddie"!

    Now that it's all over, we look back at Series 8 as a whole. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, Liz, and Tansy as we discuss the characters and themes that made series 8 what it was. We didn't love everything, and (of course) we didn't all love the same things. But we (again, of course) find plenty to chew over after this, one of the most challenging series of Doctor Who to date.

    What did you think of S8? Did it hang together well? Was it inconsistent? Was it consistently disappointing? Always awesome? Or somewhere in between? And perhaps most importantly, how much did you love Capaldi (and his hair)?

    And with that, it's over--for another six weeks, anyway. Series 8 has come to a close, and its final episode has rather a lot to chew over. Join Deb, Erika, and Katrina as we delve into some of those elements: Missy/The Master, Clara as the Doctor, the evolution of lying, the self-realization of the Doctor... There are so many elements, however, that some of them will be left for next week, when we have many Verities to talk about the whole shebang--it's our Series 8 wrap-up!

    And with that, it's over--for another six weeks, anyway. Series 8 has come to a close, and its final episode has rather a lot to chew over. Join Deb, Erika, and Katrina as we delve into some of those elements: Missy/The Master, Clara as the Doctor, the evolution of lying, the self-realization of the Doctor... There are so many elements, however, that some of them will be left for next week, when we have many Verities to talk about the whole shebang--it's our Series 8 wrap-up!

    What did you think of the series finale? Was it a perfect culmination of a fantastic series? A fitting culmination for a lousy series? Or something in between? Let us know in the comments!

    The season finale has finally arrived! Or part one of it has, anyway. It's safe to say that most of the Verities are preeeeety excited about it. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we  enthusiastically flail and squee and jabber about all there is to love and speculate about "Dark Water". There's a lot to chew on here. There's also a bit of a Skype lag, which causes some simultaneous talking, but that doesn't stop us from gleefully recounting our favorite bits and examining what (we think) is going on.

    What did you think about "Dark Water"? We know the response wasn't entirely positive, and as always, we're interested in all your opinions! (As long as they're phrased kindly and don't insult those who disagree, anyway. Of course, you guys are awesome and pretty much always stick to that!)  So please leave a comment and let us know what you thought of these revelations and why.

    Can it be Saturday already please?

Of course, I did mention controversy...though this time it's minor and mostly revolves around the flirting (or lack thereof, depending whom you agree with)--but that argument will never die.

    It’s here! The episode you’ve all been clamoring for. (Or many of you have, anyway.) Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we tackle the big issues (and a precious few that aren’t so big) in yet another divisive episode of series 8. What did we think about killing the moon? Would we have turned off our lights? Did we think it was intentionally evocative of the real-world reproductive rights debate? Do we think the Doctor was justified in his actions? It’ll come as no surprise that we don’t all agree. What we do however, is wade through technical issues to succeed in having a really good conversation about all these things and more.

  • Verity! Episode 50 - Into the Heart of Dalekness

    3 September 2014 (12:30pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 3 minutes and 16 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Are you as happy as we are to have new Doctor Who *every week*? Because we're pretty excited. Join Deb, Erika, and Lynne as we jump "Into the Dalek" and chat about this latest episode. Despite "Dalek fatigue", we're able to find plenty to squee about here--not the least of which is Peter Capaldi. We're not all equally thrilled with the introduction of Danny Pink, but we are all interested in seeing where that particular story line goes. (We can't say the same about the Missy plot/arc/red herring.)

    What are your thoughts on this latest Dalek story? And what do you think of the new Doctor, now that he's starting to settle into himself? Let us know in the comments!

    Also covered [links on our site]:

    • Erika
      • reminisces about old-school Who posters (she still has)!
      • and giggles over Merlin Mann's Doctor Who anagram!
    • Lynne enjoys the heck out of Doctor Who: Earth Conquest (which includes friend-of-the-show, Doctor Puppet's Alisa Stern)!
    • Deb is overwhelmed by the civility and kindness of our commenters and patrons!

    IT'S ALMOST HERE! Pardon the shouting, but we're a bit excited. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we talk about what little we know of the upcoming Series 8. We also have a nice little discussion about out spoiler policy--and spoilers in general. Poor Erika does too much Verity! homework and learns more than she wants. Lynne experiences ratatouille and bitterness. Kat wants you to serve her fangirly whims. And Deb is apparently on a first-name basis with Steven Moffat.

    What are you most excited about in series 8? Let us know (in a spoiler-free manner!) in the comments! And let us know your thoughts on spoilers too!

  • Verity! Episode 48 - Designing Monsters

    13 August 2014 (12:30pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 17 minutes and 14 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    Welcome to an aesthetically-oriented episode of Verity! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we take a look at monsters/aliens/villains from a design perspective. Which baddies look great? Which don't? Does a fleshed-out back story that dovetails with the design help or hinder? And of course, we save time for our most (and least!) favorites! It's a fascinating discussion that almost breaks Deb at one point--not every DW design choice was a wise one. Sometimes a cape in and of itself *is* the superhero.

    What do you think of monster design? Do you have favorites or ones you think work well? Poorly? Let us know in the comments!

    Also covered [links on our site]:

    • Lynne
      • has embarked upon a series 7 rewatch to prepare for the rapidly-approaching new series!
      • and looks forward to Peter Capaldi taking a firm hand with his character!
    • Kat is charmed by 16 seconds of Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman interacting before heading to Sydney!
    • Erika
      • enjoys the "secret" trailer for "Deep Breath"--especially Clara's line at the end!
      • and almost forgets that what's really making her happy is hearing Maggie Thompson talk about Doctor Who fandom (and how it hasn't changed that much)!
    • Deb
      • has high hopes for a new east-coast Doctor Who convention: (Re)Generation Who!
      • and kindly refrains from stealing Erika's second happy thing!

    You asked for it! (Or at least enough of you did to beat out the other choices.) This Extra! sees the first of our two listener-voted commentaries! Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we chatter over the Sylvester McCoy classic, "Paradise Towers". Or rather, we'll be talking over it if you play your DVD while listening to us. (Queuing instructions included in the 'cast.)

    And before the commentary, Lynne tells us about her exciting new project!
