Ep 015: Time, Turkey and Titanic Trauma

In this episode of The Web of Queer, we get in the festive spirit. We deliver Secret Santa gifts to each other, and deliver our review of Time Crash and Voyage of the Damned to you!

In our Voyage review, the kitchen staff is mistreated, the set design is held in high regard, and the plot… the plot is left to its own devices. There’s a bit of turkey and a glass of wine for everyone, so dive in!

Ep 014: Bi Bi Series 8

This week on The Web of Queer, it's our Series 8 overview and a discussion on bisexual characters in Doctor Who.

Our overview discussion starts with talk of our newest Doctor. Now that the series is complete, how does his arc hold up? Have we changed our initial opinions? We then talk about Clara, Danny, and take a deep dive into the concept of lying itself.

Ace! Shakespeare! Ianto! Oswin! Max! We talk about some of the bisexual characters seen on the show, and how effective those portrayals were. What feels authentic, and what puts us off? How does each representation work individually, and what is the narrative they present as a whole?
