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

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? Is a talking cactus a more or less believable shapeshifter than a mostly-non-functioning robot?

Liz discovers what might be the most useless Dalek tat ever!
