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?
