Episode 13: King Crimson Horror
Verity! logo


Saturday brought us Mark Gatiss’ sophomore series 7b story. Savvy? Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we cover “The Crimson Horror.” One of us really didn’t like it, and it may not be who you expect. See who thinks what about the Victorian trio. Find out who doesn’t know who The Wiggles are. Marvel that Erika bought a Doctor Who audio. And if you’re like Lynne when she’s not on the episode, yell at the recording for being so wrong!

Episode 12: The Incredible Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS

Not since “Invasion of Time” have we seen so much of the TARDIS interior. What did Deb, Erika, Kat, and Lynne think of it? Join us as we discuss tantalizing glimpses, underdeveloped characters, literal reset buttons, what dresses really mean, and where Kamelion puts his fingers.

Verity! Extra!-Min-Eight
Verity! logo

This extra-long Verity! Extra! picks right up where we left off last week. Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy leave the TV movie behind and spend some time talking about the bulk of the Eighth Doctor’s work–the audios and books. There’s even a brief mention of the comics. Erika reveals how little she knows about these (read: nothing), and many suggestions are offered regarding where to start.


Jumping-on audio suggestions:
Deb – Blood of the Daleks
Liz - Seasons of Fear
Tansy - Storm Warning

Verity Episode 5 - Eight is (not) Enough
Verity! logo

Our trek through the Doctors’ eras finally breaks free of the confines of new Who, though we’re technically not yet back in the welcoming arms of classic Who. This week, Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy natter on about the Eighth Doctor at such length that we run out of time to talk about his non-TV offerings. But fear not!  Next week we promise you’ll have a nice juicy Extra! filled with lots more Eighth Doctor goodness.

Verity! Extra! - Fan-TAT-stic

Hooray! Another Verity! Extra! That means lots of exclamation points! And also a fun little discussion! Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne chat about tat—toys, TARDIS keys, action figures, posters, playsets, and much, much more.

What’s your favorite piece of tat?  Or are you like Erika and dislike “stuff”?  Let us know!

Verity! Extra!: A Con-versation
Verity! logo

This week’s Extra! is a timely one. With Gallifrey One only about a week away Deb, Erika, Kat, and Lynne discuss conventions–of the Doctor Who and the general SF variety. Connecting in person to fellow fans can be one of the best fan experiences, though it doesn’ always ork out that way. We chat about our con experiences in general and our thoughts on Gally specifically.

Will you be at Gallifrey One this year? So will we! Well, four of us anyway–Deb, Erika, Kat, and Liz will be there with ribbons to share! We hope to see some of you there.  In addition to generally milling about throughout the weekend, some of us will be on panels. Please come see what we have to say! (Full descriptions of the panels can be found on the Gallifrey One Convention Schedule.)

Verity Episode 3 - A Perfect 10?
Verity! logo
Time for another rousing discussion about which story best exemplifies a Doctor’s era. This time Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne tackle the 10th Doctor (not literally—as much as Lynne would probably enjoy that). “School Reunion” lies at the heart of the discussion, though “The Girl in the Fireplace” is touched upon and “Journey’s End” is defended quite ably.

We start the show with some Who-centric items that excite us, and end by taking a few minutes to talk (and rant) about the “Tennant Fangirl” phenomenon, awesome and unfairly-derided cosplay, and how to not be a dick.  (Wheaton’s Law, people. Follow it!)

Verity! Extra!
Verity! logo

While counting down to the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who is a noble and important effort, we thought it was a good idea to take a few minutes from time to time to discus something else—in this case, something fun!  Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy dish about the duds of many a companion throughout the years.  The TARDIS wardrobe must’ve been one helluva place!

Instead of the post here on the website we thought Tansy was going to give you, she went above and beyond and created an entire Pintrest board!  (Is that what they call them?)  Step inside the TARDIS wardrobe yourself and take a look around!

In addition, check out Kat’s awesome suggestion and find where you can buy some companion clothes of your very own!

In this episode, Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy bring you a rousing discussion about which story is the most representative of the Matt Smith era. Though we focus on “The Eleventh Hour,” we make room for chit chat about a few other episodes as well.

What do you think is the most representative 11th Doctor story? Let us know! Kat will tell you you’re wrong, and (though she didn’t join us this week) Liz will likely judge you.
