8/8/2018
More
It's time for another "perfect match"! Join Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we dig into Kat's excellent choices: "The Five Doctors" and "The Day of the Doctor". That pairing seems so obvious now that Kat pointed it out! We delve into the function of anniversary specials and multi-Doctor stories and take a look at how they work both then and now. What do you think about these two stories? Any echoes we didn't have time to mention that you want to make sure get some love? Tell us in the...

8/1/2018
More
Once again, as a thank you to our FABULOUS PATREON PATRONS, we are following through on our promise to do a commentary for "The Mark of the Rani". Join Deb, Liz, Lynne, and Tansy as they dive into this 6th Doctor classic! For the record, Liz is right, I would have totally commiserated with the Doctor when his pun game wasn't given the love it deserved. Do you agree with the Verities about this story?

7/18/2018
More
Back in March, we were proud to participate in the Who Against Guns movement. We helped other Doctor Who podcasters raise over $20,000 to support gun control.

7/11/2018
More
Do you think you understand how this game works? YOU ARE WRONG. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we try to muddle our way through another one of Lizbeth's quizzes, "Doctor Who or Not?"

6/27/2018
More
It's Lynne's turn to select a classic and a modern Who story to be her perfect match, and she's gone all Scots! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we chew over haggis, kilts, shape-shifters, werewolves, and lots and lots of mythology. That's right, we're talking about "The Terror of the Zygons" and "Tooth and Claw"! Did you spot any other parallels between these stories?

Extra! - Dinosaurs on a Commentary

6/20/2018
More
Remember back when we promised to do a couple commentaries as a thank you to our FABULOUS PATREON PATRONS? Well, trust us, we did. And better late than never? Here's the first one! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lizbeth as we discuss "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship": the dinosaurs, the spaceship, Amy-as-Doctor, pretty-people-bias, "comedy" robots, and so much Rupert Graves. Also, a serious anti-cookie agenda. Are you a fan of this story? Or does it annoy you like it does at least one of the...

Ep 168 - Companions' Companions

6/6/2018

5/30/2018
More
This time we feel like we're fully on track when it comes to companions picking up companions. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we chat about the amazing Isobel Watkins and her relationship with Zoe (and the rest of the TARDIS crew) in "The Invasion". What do you think of Isobel? Is she subversive in her femininity? Is Zoe actually her companion? Or is she flighty and not as great as we think?

Ep 166 - The Greatest Companions in the Galaxy

5/23/2018
More
This mini-arc may have curved all the way off the rails, but we don't care. Ace is the embodiment of this very idea, and "The Greatest Show in the Galaxy" gives us plenty to talk about. Including, of course, a significant tangent about the history of clowns in popular media. Because why not? What do you think about Ace's companion-collecting habits? And do you think she and Mags would have made a good TARDIS team? Let us know in the comments! ^E Also covered: The Cavesher talk about it...

Ep 165 - Companions on the Orient Express

5/16/2018
More
Mini-arc #3, companions collecting women companions, starts with the realization that new-Who doesn't have many great examples of this. Join Deb, Liz, and Lynne as they discuss why that might be and how it works (or doesn't) in the case of "Mummy on the Orient Express". Poor Erika, who is absent, takes some serious guff. What do you think about companions' companions in the modern era? Are they sparse because of lack of screen time? Is it simply a different type of storytelling? Or...
