Ep 050: Lost And Found In Space

In this episode of The Web of Queer, we review the Fourth Doctor story State of Decay and the Big Finish Sixth Doctor story 1963: Space Race.

For our State of Decay review, our new fans have finally met all of the companions, so how was this as an introduction to Adric and Romana II? How did we think the folk tales of vampires differ between our space and E Space?

In our review of 1963: Space Race, we look at one of the stories Big Finish released for Doctor Who's 50th Anniversary. What did we think of this spy story? How well was the science of spaceflight (and black holes) handled? What did we think of the portrayal of the lesbian relationship in this story?

Ep 049: Jessica the Great Architect

In this episode of The Web of Queer, we review the 7th Doctor story Paradise Towers, and then discuss where we would go in the Tardis given the chance.

For our Paradise Towers review, we discuss the society that exists within the towers. What do we think of the different groups of inhabitants? What were Jessica and Mikayla's first impressions of Mel? Did we like the Caretakers and their rulebook?


Afterwards, we discuss where we would go if we had a trip in the Tardis. Who wants to visit aliens? Would we rescue missing episodes? Who would become an evil Space Dictator?
