Ep 050: Lost And Found In Space

In this episode of The Web of Queer, we review the Fourth Doctor story State of Decay and the Big Finish Sixth Doctor story 1963: Space Race.

For our State of Decay review, our new fans have finally met all of the companions, so how was this as an introduction to Adric and Romana II? How did we think the folk tales of vampires differ between our space and E Space?

In our review of 1963: Space Race, we look at one of the stories Big Finish released for Doctor Who's 50th Anniversary. What did we think of this spy story? How well was the science of spaceflight (and black holes) handled? What did we think of the portrayal of the lesbian relationship in this story?

Ep 049: Jessica the Great Architect

In this episode of The Web of Queer, we review the 7th Doctor story Paradise Towers, and then discuss where we would go in the Tardis given the chance.

For our Paradise Towers review, we discuss the society that exists within the towers. What do we think of the different groups of inhabitants? What were Jessica and Mikayla's first impressions of Mel? Did we like the Caretakers and their rulebook?


Afterwards, we discuss where we would go if we had a trip in the Tardis. Who wants to visit aliens? Would we rescue missing episodes? Who would become an evil Space Dictator?

Ep 048: You Keep Using That Word: I do not think it means what you think it means

In this episode of The Web of Queer, we review the 5th Doctor story Enlightenment, and then have a discussion on how asexuality is defined in the media and how that conflicts with real life experiences.

For our Enlightenment review, we discuss costumes, continuity, and the Creepy Dude. How did Tegan handle herself under such odd scrutiny, what was Turlough really up to, and how does the Doctor stack up, being an Ephemeral himself?

In our asexuality discussion, we break down the difference between media’s version of asexuality, and the real life use of the word to describe people on the ace spectrum. What results from using perceived asexuality to “other” a character in fiction? And how have other characters in Doctor Who contributed to the perception of the Doctors sexual and romantic orientations?

Ep 047: Another Song Ends

In this episode of the Web of Queer, we review the Christmas special The Husbands of River Song, and discuss an overview of Series 9.

For our review of The Husbands of River Song, we discuss the Doctor's reunion with River. What do we think of this picture of what River is like without the Doctor around? What did we think of River's many husbands (and wives)? Did we like this Christmas romp?

In our Series 9 overview, we look back at the series as a whole, now that it is complete. Did we like this structure of two-parters? What did we think of the tone of the series? Are we happy with the series arc, now that we've seen it concluded?

Ep 046: Hell of a Companion

In this episode of the Web of Queer, we review the series 9 finale Hell Bent, and draft some fictional characters to fill the vacancy in the Tardis.

In our Hell Bent review, we talk about The Doctor's return to Gallifrey. What do characters like The General mean for the show, and who is voting for a Clara/Me spinoff?

In our fictional character discussion, we decide who we would pick to fill the excellent shoes left by Clara’s departure. What universe are they from, how would they react to the adventure, and how would they get along with the 12th Doctor?

Ep 045: The Fridge of Christmas Past

In this Christmas episode of The Web of Queer, we review the Eleventh Doctor Christmas special, A Christmas Carol. What did we think of the setting and atmosphere of the story? Did we like how the time travel elements were used? How does this story treat its characters, and does it live up to its statement that everyone is important?
