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?
