Verity! Episode 40: Doctor Who Villains: The Estrogen Adventures

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 one than the last one we talked about.) What does it mean to be a diva? Do all the female baddies on the show (and included the extra) qualify? Our discussion ranges beyond “Those Deadly Divas”, so if you haven’t seen it, don’t fear, there’s plenty here for you too. Add our “happy-Who-things”, plus a special announcement, and you’ve got yourself a rollicking episode of Verity!

Oh, and shout-out to the iTunes review that inspired this week’s title.
