Ep 010: Sometimes A Train Is Just A Train

On this week’s episode of The Web of Queer, we take a gushing look at the most recent episode, Flatline. What made us giggle, what made us laugh, and what made us wonder what time we were really in? It’s a short one this week, enjoy!

Ep 009: Cool Trains and Hot Chocolate

In this episode of The Web of Queer we review the newest episode, Mummy On The Orient Express, and take a look at the Hartnel classic, The Aztecs.

In Mummy, we ogle the setting a bit, then get down to business. Do the ends justify the means? Do we think the Doctor is reasonable in how he interacts with those about to die? What about our main characters' addictions and what do we think of how the Mummy is selecting victims?

What things in The Aztecs caught our attention? As Barbara takes center stage, what did we think of her, and the other women’s portrayals in the 1964 story, and did we see any threads to modern day Who?

Ep 008: Sucky Science and Sapphic Scarcity

In this episode of The Web of Queer, we review the space thriller Kill the Moon. But how thrilling was it? Who tripped over the science, and who tripped over the Doctor?

In our second segment, we talk about a few of the lesbians featured in the world of Who. From the 20th century to the year 5 BillionFiftyThree, we’ve met all kinds, but who stuck out? Who do we think gets good representation, and who still has to deal with 21st century homophobia?

Ep 007: An Officer and a Metalman

After “The Caretaker,” the internet is abuzz with conversations about the Doctor/Clara/Danny dynamic, and we are no different! Who thinks Danny is setting too many rules, and who is okay with the ultimatum? We also puzzle out the Smith look-a-like, chat bit more about Missy, and dig into the Officer/Soldier comparisons going on in this episode.

Later, we have our review of “Planet of Fire.” After we have a giggle, we jump into a more serious topic. What was the writers initial intent to the back-story of back story of the people of Sarn and Trion, and what do we think of what got left after the cut?

This is an episode we would love some feedback on, so post away! Did you have an opinion on any of this before, and did any of us sway you?
