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?

Ep 044: (Only) Doctor Who Is Required

In this episode of The Web of Queer, we review the penultimate episode of series 9, Heaven Sent, and the First Doctor story The War Machines.

For our review of Heaven Sent, we discuss this unusual episode. Did we like Capaldi's solo performance, and how the story was constructed? What do we think is next after that reveal at the end?

In The War Machines we encounter Dalek-like machines and 60s computing. How did the War Machines compare to the Daleks? Did the questions and concepts around artificial intelligence hold up to present day? What did we think of our first glimpse of Dodo, Ben, and Polly?

Ep 043: Face The Erasure

On this episode of The Web of Queer, we review the tenth episode of series 9, Face the Raven, and have a discussion about bi erasure.

In our review of Face the Raven, we discuss the apparent end of Clara's story. What did we think of how her death was handled? Were we surprised to see Me again? Did we like of the concept and execution of the trap street?

For our bi erasure discussion, we talk about the passive bias that has removed bisexual/pansexual people from the queer narrative, and what might be causing it. How does Clara’s story fit the bi erasure tropes we have seen? What harm can come from erasing a whole section of queerdom, and what can be done to fix it?
