Ep 066: Dig Deep, Fly High

In this episode, we review the 3rd Doctor story The Green Death, and review the 8th Doctor’s first Big Finish audio, Storm Warning.

In our review of The Green Death we talk about this early 70s take on industry and environmentalism. How did we feel about Jo Grant’s departure? How did this evil AI compare to others? And just how many safety violations does it take to make Mikayla’s head explode?

For our Storm Warning review, we talk about the Doctor’s first audio adventure with his new companion, Charlie. How well do we think they get along, what about this alien society seems implausible, and overall, how does this first story of the 8th Doctor's long run hold up?

Ep 063: Coming Out of your Tardis

In this episode of The Web of Queer, we review the 4th Doctor story Keeper of Traken, and have a discussion on coming out.
For our review, we talk about the 4th Doctor story Keeper of Traken. What do we think of Nyssa’s introduction, does anyone see the twists coming before the companions, and how did knowing too much make one of us more confused?

In our discussion, we talk about how “coming out” is not a single event. With a focus on sexual and romantic orientations, we talk about the many ways to come out, how the circumstances and reasons that effect the conversation at hand, and how some of these ideas have been parralled through sci-fi.
