  • Extra! - 7 Fave Xmas(ish) Stories

    Direct Podcast Download

    SCHEDULING NOTE: We won't be dropping a Verity! ep on New Year's Day because Doctor Who is dropping that day! In order to get a quorum together to talk about it, our ep (like all the series 10 Verity! eps) will drop over the weekend.

    There may not be Doctor Who on Christmas Day, but we're bringing on the Christmas cheer with this special, super-sized "7 Faves" episode. Join ALL of the Verities: Deb, Erika, Katrina, Lizbeth, Lynne, and Tansy as we do a rapid round of Seven Holiday Favorites. There are the usual suspects drawn from modern Who's rich tradition of Christmas specials, plus we veer off-piste and draw on Big Finish stories, classic Who canon (that may or may not have the most slight, tenuous grasp to anything remotely holiday-related) Doctor Who spinoffs, and short stories. It's a mixed bag of holiday(ish) goodness.

    What are your favorite Doctor Who holiday stories? Leave us a comment or drop us a tweet and let us know. And don't forget to enter for a chance to win one of seven Big Finish Audio downloads during our 7th Anniversary Giveaway!

    Episode Duration: 0 days, 0 hours, 33 minutes and 14 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    As the holiday season approaches we all have a lot of thoughts about traditions. I think it's safe to say, however, that this topic probably WON'T be a Verity! tradition, basically because we can't even agree as to what a tradition IS. But we give it a decent go as Deb, Erika, and Liz talk about their Doctor Who traditions, holiday-related and otherwise. Liz disputes most of it, Erika digs deep and Deb just has a lot of feelings about Elf on the Shelf.

    Join Deb, Kat, and Tansy as they reach waaay back to 2011 to re-examine the story that began (ended? landed the middle? it's hard to tell with peak S6-Moffat) the whole "The Doctor is the most fearsome thing in the Universe" lark. No, I didn't misspell "arc". They dive into tropes, power dynamics, issues of morality, the difficulties of (and sexism surrounding) introducing a baby subplot, and how words and titles have meanings. Oh, and how Regency dress and laser guns really really work for us. AND we announce a 7th Anniversary give-away!

    How do you feel about this turn in the Doctor mythos? Did you think this was a satisfactory conclusion to The Mystery of River Song? Do you want Tansy to give you a bespoke Big Finish Rec? Leave us a comment or drop us a tweet and let us know!

    ^D

    Happy things:
    • Tansy is back on her Big Finish train and is loving the #HarrySullivan Short Trips audio!

    Direct Podcast Download

    This week Deb, Erika, Liz and Tansy revisit an oft maligned (by Deb) story -- "The Daleks' Master Plan". There are a few disagreements as to pace, plot, story, Katarina... and while may not all agree on which companion actually clocks in as the official 7th companion in Doctor Who history, we do all agree that Sara Kingdom is a BAMF.

    How do you feel about this "epic" adventure? Is it a rambling mess? A beloved Doctor Who romp or BOTH? And what is your preferred method for consuming this phantom of a story? Leave us a comment or send us a tweet and let us know how you feel about Bret, Sara, The Meddling Monk or any one of the other 1,183 plot points in "The Daleks' Master Plan"?

    ^D

    Happy Things:

    • Deb (and most of Doctor Who fandom) is excited about the new Series 12 Trailer -- new baddies, old baddies -- can't wait!
    • Liz is particularly excited about the cosplay options the trailer inspired -- FORMAL WEAR!
    • Erika is delighted Handwavium is covering one her favorite stories -- "The Sensorites"!
    • Tansy is once again filled with admiration and glee at Big Finish's commitment to delving into the cracks of Doctor Who history -- particularly the new release Daughter of the Gods, which lets Katarina shine!

    We give credit to 8 y.o. RTD (the obvious creator of the Dalek v. Cyberman smackdown) while calling out the emotional manipulation he inflicted upon both Jackie and Rose. But we all come together in our adoration Yvonne Hartman’s confidence (and tailoring) and Mickey Smith’s swagger.
