Doctor Who: The Web Of Queer

In this episode, we review the Ninth Doctor story Boom Town and the Torchwood story Captain Jack Harkness.

In our review of Boom Town, we discuss this often overlooked story. What did we think of the return of the Slitheen? Do we think the story did a good job handling the moral issues it raised? Did the contrasting tones of the story work for us?

For our Captain Jack Harkness review, we discuss the team dynamic, and what happens during this time of a power vacuum. What does the caretaker want, and how do we interpret his actions? How someone's complicated history is related to the people that surround them, and how Jack handed a very public coming out situation.
