This week we bring you episode 78–really! Pay no attention to Deb’s introduction. Erika isn’t the only one who makes mistakes! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we talk about companion teams. First, we have to define that term and differentiate it from “TARDIS team”. Then we can get into the meat of the […]

New Verity! Ep 73: Farewell (& Not-So-Well) Companions

Wednesday, April 29th, 2015

We thought this provided some nice symmetry with our episode about companion arrivals. Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we talk about how companions leave the TARDIS.

New! Verity! Extra! — PRIME Lords

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

It’s April Fools’ Day, so we thought we’d bring you something a bit lighter than usual. Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we discuss the totally-canonical (according to some) PR1ME computer ads Tom Baker and Lalla Ward did in the early 80s. Wait. I should be clearer–Tom and Lalla did these Australian commercials AS […]

That’s right. We’re pretty excited about this week’s companion topic.

Is there anything that can be off-putting to audiences? Does Romana count? The answer to […]

New Verity! Extra! — Regeneration Critics

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

It’s Extra!-time again. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we get a little silly (and tangential…surprise, surprise) while talking about regenerations.

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015

This week we focus on one companion–the winner of our Verity! companions poll! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne, as we talk about Ace!
