Ep 093: Caricatures, Cyphers, and Cynicism

In this episode we review the Thirteenth Doctor story Arachnids in the UK.

In our review, we look at this creepy episode. Did the plot and the giant spiders work for us? What did we think of our introduction to Yaz’s family, and how the relationships between the companions are developing? And how do we think queer representation in the series is being handled so far?

Ep 089: Am I A Good Man?

In this episode we review the Third Doctor story The Ambassadors of Death and have a discussion about the Twelfth Doctor.

In our review of The Ambassadors of Death, we talk about how this story shows human space exploration. What did we think of Liz Shaw's role in the story and the relationship she has with the Doctor? Who were the real antagonists in this story? Did this story really need seven parts?

In our discussion, we look back at the Twelfth Doctor, and how he has changed over his three series. What did we like and dislike about his characterization? What did we think of his relationships with his companions? Do we think he lived up to his final instruction to be kind?

Ep 087: Face To Face


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.
