Doctor Who: The Web Of Queer

 On this episode of The Web of Queer, we discuss episode 5 in this series run, “Time Heist”. We talk wardrobes, space weather, and women. How do we interpret Saibra’s mutant powers? And what exactly did Clara have to do in this episode?

 

After, we dive into a discussion about transgender representation in Who, or rather the lack of it. What examples has the show shown us so far, and how do we think the show can add to its roster of queer characters?
