Doctor Who: The Web Of Queer

In this episode, we review the story The Five Doctors, and have a discussion about our third anniversary.

For The Five Doctors review, we look at this anniversary story. Does the plot work, or does that not even matter? How does Rassilon and the Time Lords compare to what we know of them from other stories? Do we think this is a good starting point for Classic Who?

For our much delayed third anniversary discussion, we talk about the origins of the podcast, and what effect it has had on our lives. How do handle what to edit, what to keep in, and what happens when we don’t agree? And how much content is there for a queer podcast to talk about?

In this episode, we review the First Doctor story The Tenth Planet, and have an overview discussion on Series 10.

For our Tenth Planet review, what did we think of this first appearance of the Cybermen and how did they compare to the Cybermen we see in New Who? What did we think of the roles the Doctor and companions played in the story, and how the First Doctor’s story ends?

For our Series 10 overview, we discuss Bill’s time on board the Tardis. Overall, did we like this series? After a series with Bill, what did we think of her character and her storyline? Are we looking forward to Christmas?

Note: We recorded this episode roughly a week after the series ended, before the trailer came out. Some of our discussion and speculation may now sound quite dated, depending on how much you’ve been paying attention to the news about Christmas.

In this episode, we review the ninth episode of series 10, Empress of Mars, and the Second Doctor story, The Seeds of Death.

In our Empress of Mars review, we discuss what we thought of the latest return of the Ice Warriors. Did we like the idea of Victorians on Mars? What prompted this week’s discussion about inaccurate science? What do we think will happen, now that Missy is out of the vault?

For The Seeds of Death, we look at this early Ice Warrior story. What did we think of the global teleport system and the idea that rockets are outdated? How did these Ice Warriors compare to the ones we’ve seen in the new series?

In our review, we talk about the messages in the story. How did we think racism, disability and capitalism were examined in the story? How well do we think the tension in the story held together, and what do we think of the consequences the Doctor now has to deal with going forward?
