Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

Deadly divas, anyone? This week our villainous discussion centers on the ladies. For a change, we have a jumping off point–and it’s VAM! (That’s “value-added material”, as in DVD extras.) Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we discuss one of the extras on the Shada DVD set. (Spoiler: We’re much more excited about this […]

ICYMI: Verity, Episode 39: Turn, Smile, Shapeshift, Repeat

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

This week we cover what are some of the trickiest of the villains the Doctor has faced (one who even wears his face)! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we try to stay on topic talking about shapeshifters. What is it about them that’s scary? Do they hold the same appeal for all of us? […]

New Verity! Extra!: The Rani, Remembered

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014

This week’s Extra is somewhat melancholy. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, Liz, and Lynne as we remember the Rani and pay tribute to the contribution of the late Kate O’Mara. Cold, sharp, stylish, snarky, and oh-so-delightful, the Rani is one of the Verities’ most beloved Gallifreyan villains. Why do we love her? What made her special? Can/should the Rani […]

New Verity! Episode 38: Cybermental

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

You had to know we’d get here sooner or later. How could one of the most iconic villain races in Doctor Who not rate their own episode?

New Verity! Extra! Who’s In What?

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

This week’s Extra! is another fun one. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Liz as we talk about the rabbit holes we’ve disappeared down because of Doctor Who. Which actors and creators have we followed from Who? What other shows have we watched because of them? Are we embarrassed by these properties? (Hint: the answer is yes.) See […]

New Verity! Episode 37: These Villains are History!

Wednesday, March 12th, 2014

This week we dip into the past to talk about some baddies from the old days. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we set out to discuss the historical villains of Doctor Who. Along the way we discover it’s much more complicated than it seems. Historical (and pseudo-historical) stories are really different beasts from other […]

New! Verity! Extra! Chicago TARDIS Leftovers

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

  Remember how much fun we had at the Chicago TARDIS live show when we let the audience pick the topics we’d talk about? It didn’t seem fair that we couldn’t all participate, so we saved the last few topics for the rest of the gang! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we clean […]

New Verity! Episode 36: Run-of-the-mill to Run for your life!

Wednesday, February 26th, 2014

  Steven Moffat is often praised for his ability to take perfectly normal everyday things and make them terrifying, but Doctor Who has a long history of such antics. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we chat about lots of mundane items we now give the side-eye, thanks to our beloved show. From angels to dolls […]

5 Things Make a Monday Post

Monday, February 17th, 2014

1. Caitlin is relatively stable with slightly intermittent barfing. Her electrolytes are normal! She is nearly off of her pain medications (yay!); we suspect this may be adding to the abovementioned barfing (boo). We are now at the part of recovery where she’s basically mostly stable, and we need to be really patient and remember […]
