    Happy Hallowe'en to you all! Due to some tricks technology played on us, you get the treat of not having to wait another week to hear the conclusion of our definitive companion series. Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we wrap up the remaining five Doctors and discuss who we think is the definitive companion for each.

    This week, we at Verity! learned, once again, that there's no way to cover all 50 years of Doctor Who in one short episode--at least not for us. Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we hash out who the definitive companion is for each Doctor. Do we agree? Are you kidding? In fact, we only made it through about half of the Doctors, so join us now for Doctors 11 through 6 (going backwards, of course), and stay tuned in a couple weeks when we tackle the rest!

    Woo hoo! This week Deb, Erika, Katrina, Liz, and Lynne join the ranks of gleeful fans around the world as we celebrate the return of nine previously-lost second Doctor episodes! We just happen to have reached dear old 2 in our countdown, so we threw out the story we planned for and decided "The Web of Fear" is a great representative story. Though maybe not all of us were quite as squeeful about it as expected.

    Of course we can't help but talk about "The Enemy of the World" a bit too. It's all just SO EXCITING!

    Also covered [links on our site]:
    Lynne listened to "Evil of the Daleks"! And is thrilled that Michael Damian Thomas is a guest at Chicago TARDIS!
    Kat's finds that tumblr fandom has embraced the newly-found episodes! And her knit-a-thon is almost 3/4 funded!
    Liz plays with Sutekh and her Pyramids of Mars playset!
    Erika is in love with the new Sunspot song, "Arthuriana" (especially the Doctor Who bits)!
    Deb is excited Traffic Experiment is releasing our theme tune on vinyl! And met Alisa Stern, aka The Doctor Puppet, at NYCC!

    It's time once again to talk about companions! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we turn our attention to the male denizens of the TARDIS (and possibly its immediate surroundings, though we don't agree on whether that counts). No surprise, the Verity! crew is just as divided as fandom at large when it comes to what qualifies one for "companion" status. But we do agree that male companions add a great deal of value and entertainment to our beloved show, and we want more!

    We're back to talking Doctors this week, but perhaps not in the way you expected. Join Erika, Kat, Liz, and Tansy as we discuss those actors who played the Doctor non-canonically! *gasp* Yes, there are plenty of performances out there that don't fall under the umbrella of what went out on BBC1. More than some of us realized! Certainly more than some of us cared about.

    As you may have noticed, we're sans Deb this week. With no one (but the hapless Erika) to reign in the troops, see just how far things go off the rails. (Actually, we remain pretty much on track until near the very end.)

    (And despite the title of this episode, I'm afraid we don't actually dip back into the Virgin New Adventures and talk about that shadowy figure from Gallifrey's ancient past who may or may not have some direct connection to the Doctor. If you want to hear about that, check out this episode of The Doctor Who Book Club Podcast.)

We say "boo" to meanness, decry gatekeeping, and debate who gets to define terms like "fangirl". It's a great conversation and further proof that it is, in fact, possible to have a reasonable discussion of a difficult topic and still remain calm and friendly.

  • Verity! Extra! - Nothing 'Only' about Being a Girl...Doctor

    Episode Duration: 34 minutes and 56 seconds

    Nothing sends fandom into a tizzy like thoughts of a new Doctor. Nothing sends fandom into an even bigger tizzy than that like thoughts of a *gasp* woman Doctor! Join Deb, Erika, Kat, and Liz as we discuss why this is such a hot-button issue and why we each feel the way we do about the prospect. (No, believe it or not, we do not all want a female Doctor.)

    This week a slightly smaller Verity! crew tackles the Master (but not literally--except maybe in Deb's dreams). Join Deb, Erika, and Tansy as we cover the different iterations of the Doctor's arch enemy--from the classy to the crazy and everything in between. See who likes which Master. Find out which Master none of us likes (you can probably guess). Decide for yourself if Delgado's Master is the same as Peter Pratt's (we don't agree).

    Apparently it's book season at Verity! For this week's Extra we bring you yet another book review. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we discuss what we thought of the latest of the "geek chronicles" from Mad Norwegian Press, Queers Dig Time Lords: A Celebration of Doctor Who by the LGBTQ Fans Who Love It.

    As you may expect, we don't agree about what types of essays we like best, but we do agree that this is an excellent addition to anyone's Doctor Who nonfiction library. If you want to check out one example of what you can find in it, take a gander at Rachel Swirsky's "The Girl Who Waited (for the Guidance Counselor to Get to His Point)". Though as we point out, the essays in this book run the gamut, so there's something for everyone!

Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we take a break from our Classic Doctors countdown to chat about the companions who were "modern women" at the time they were on the show. Is Barbara the greatest? What's changed about contemporary companions over the years? And has such change been for the better? Are "modern" companions even necessary? Is Barbara really the greatest?

Join Deb, Erika, Kat, and Liz as we discuss the delights (or lack thereof) of Colin Baker's reign as our favorite Time Lord. Or is the Doctor our favorite Time Lord, now that we've seen the Rani? That's right, we're talking about "The Mark of the Rani", which at least one of us thought was the most representative story of the sixth Doctor's run.

    Is old Colin as bad as so many folks say he is? Is Peri? Does the Rani now own Deb thoroughly? Should we have covered "Timelash" instead? We don't actually agree on most of these things, but boy howdy do we have a good time talking about them!
