New Verity! Episode 66: Companions who never were

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015

Our year of companions kicks off in delightful style! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we discuss those Doctor Whocharacters who were almost companions–those who were slated to become TARDIS travelers but never did, as well as those who we wish had stuck around. Deb accidentally invents a new word*. Kat is thoroughly predictable. Erika unabashedly […]

Doctor Who Nativity: for posterity

Monday, December 22nd, 2014

So, Mary Robinette Kowal dared Michael on Twitter to do a Doctor Who nativity with our action figures.   CHALLENGE ACCEPTED:   Someone else asked where the Daleks and Cybermen were. This was the response: You’re welcome. (Yes, the Season 18 scarf was the one I knitted while working on Chicks Dig Time Lords.) Happy […]

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

*dusts off blog* We’ve been a bit busy this month, 1. We are setting up Uncanny. The big, robust website is being built, contracts are being signed,  we’ve found our first issue’s materials and are working on converting them into ebooks, authors are being paid, and are also working on all that setting up a small business […]

Thoughts on Deep Breath

Sunday, August 31st, 2014

I just watched “Into the Dalek” last night, and will share my thoughts on that on the next Verity!. I have some first impressions, and some nitpicks about “Deep Breath.” In general, I really liked most of the episode. It was a pretty good introduction of a new Doctor, although I still think “The Eleventh […]

New Verity! Extra! Series 8! Series 8! What do we appreciate?

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

IT’S ALMOST HERE! Pardon the shouting, but we’re a bit excited. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we talk about what little we know of the upcoming Series 8. We also have a nice little discussion about out spoiler policy–and spoilers in general. Poor Erika does too much Verity! homework and learns more than she […]

You asked for it! (Or at least enough of you did to beat out the other choices.) This Extra! sees the first of our two listener-voted commentaries! Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we chatter over the Sylvester McCoy classic, “Paradise Towers“. Or rather, we’ll be talking over it if you play your DVD while […]

5 things make a post-Convergence update post

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

  1. New Verity Episode! Episode 46: Communication Breakdown is live. 2. Work is quiet, in the sense that I’m mostly working on things like annual reports and tenure portfolio reviews, that I can poke at slowly over time well before the deadlines. We are planning Digital POWRR workshops in the fall (I will be […]
