Ep 056: A Song of Ice and Claras

In this episode of The Web of Queer, we review the Eleventh Doctor story Cold War, and discuss Clara’s character arc.

In our Cold War review, we discuss how this is an underrepresented part of history in Doctor Who. What did we think of the return of Ice Warriors? How did the Professor’s relationship with Clara compared to the Doctor? How did other roles we’ve seen the actors in influence rewatching the story?

Our Clara discussion takes a look at the character from her start as the Impossible Girl all the way to running off with her own Tardis at the end. Did we think that Clara’s character stayed consistent throughout her time with the Doctor? Did we like the direction her arc(s) took, and the decision to have her on the Tardis part time, while still trying to maintain her day-to-day life?

Ep 055: Cabbages and Queens

In this episode of The Web of Queer, we review the Sixth Doctor story Terror of the Vervoids, and the Tenth Doctor and Donna Big Finish story, Death and the Queen.

In our Terror of the Vervoids review, we discuss Mel’s introduction, and how quickly it seems to dismiss Peri. Do we think this story helps or hurts the Doctor’s defence? How well realized is the villain in the story, and how believable are the secondary characters?

In our review of Death and the Queen, we talk about Ten and Donna’s return with Big Finish, and how their characters are written after their departure from TV. How much fan service was in this story, and did it serve its purpose? Who moves the story along, and who didn’t need to be there at all?
