New Verity! Extra! A Titan of Comics

Wednesday, March 18th, 2015

For this week’s Extra, we haven’t watched anything. Instead, we’ve been reading! Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Tansy as we talk about the new(ish) line of Doctor Whocomics from Titan Comics. We’ve all read the first five issues of the 10th and 11th Doctors’ series, and some of us have read even farther. We discuss what it’s […]

ICYMI: New Verity! Episode 70: Intellectual Squee-Quals

Monday, March 16th, 2015

That’s right. We’re pretty excited about this week’s companion topic. Join Deb, Erika, Lynne, and Tansy as we talk about the most educated companions–the academics, the doctors, the scientists, and more. What is it about them that makes them appealing? 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. What makes a “worthy” regeneration for the Doctor? Which ones make us uncomfortable? What would we like to see in the future? (Besides a better Skype connection…grr.) What would we like to see […]

New Verity! Episode 69: Ace is Ace!

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! Our personal feelings about Ace as a companion are mixed, but we all agree (mostly) on her importance as a companion. It’s pretty easy to draw a line between Ace and Rose, […]

New Verity! Episode 67: The First Ladies of Doctor Who

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015

Ok, it’s finally time to talk about “proper” companions (whatever that means). Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Liz as we talk about the companions that started (and re-started) it all. We’re focusing on Susan, Grace, and Rose–the ladies who ushered in each “era” of Doctor Who. We find more parallels than you might expect (certainly more […]

2014 in review and awards eligibility

Thursday, January 8th, 2015

It’s that time of year again! I’m busy writing my annual report at work, so it’s a good time to write down What I Did in SF/F in 2014, too. For Michael and I, the biggest accomplishment this year was all of us surviving Caitlin’s spinal surgery. Period. That said, here are the things I […]

5 Things Make a Post

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 […]

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

I’m not on this one, but you know you wanna.  I need to listen to it and write my 2 cents post!    

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 […]
