Doctor Who: The Web Of Queer
Ep 017: Face Crabs and Goo Snakes

On this episode of The Web of Queer, our Christmas review is finally here! We also see our final classic Doctor, with the Eighth Doctor's TV Movie!

 

In our Last Christmas review, does this gruff, cynical Santa fill our stocking with glee? Does the dream world do Danny any favours? What topics fit the Christmas spirit, and which did we feel should have waited for another time?

 

In the TV Movie, we get a glimpse at a new Doctor and a new Master! How does everything hold up almost 20 years later? Exactly how far should we keep Americans away from making Doctor Who?

Ep 016: Hidden Tombs and Visible People

On this Episode of The Web of Queer, we dive back into Classic Who with Tomb of the Cybermen, and then plunge into a discussion of queer representation in the media.

 

In our Tomb review, we open the plastic and see what shambles beneath. There is diversity, but how do the characters hold up? Do the old Cybermen compare favourably to the new, and how about those sets?

 

For our representation discussion, we break down tropes, stereotypes, and even acronyms. What do we see in media today that gets it right, and what completely distorts reality? How does seeing ourselves reflected in media help or hinder us? And what messages does the current status of representation send to non-queer folk?
