Ep 079: The Five Podcasters

In this episode, we review the story The Five Doctors, and have a discussion about our third anniversary.

For The Five Doctors review, we look at this anniversary story. Does the plot work, or does that not even matter? How does Rassilon and the Time Lords compare to what we know of them from other stories? Do we think this is a good starting point for Classic Who?

For our much delayed third anniversary discussion, we talk about the origins of the podcast, and what effect it has had on our lives. How do handle what to edit, what to keep in, and what happens when we don’t agree? And how much content is there for a queer podcast to talk about?

Ep 078: Beginning of the Ends

In this episode, we review the First Doctor story The Tenth Planet, and have an overview discussion on Series 10.

For our Tenth Planet review, what did we think of this first appearance of the Cybermen and how did they compare to the Cybermen we see in New Who? What did we think of the roles the Doctor and companions played in the story, and how the First Doctor’s story ends?

For our Series 10 overview, we discuss Bill’s time on board the Tardis. Overall, did we like this series? After a series with Bill, what did we think of her character and her storyline? Are we looking forward to Christmas?

Note: We recorded this episode roughly a week after the series ended, before the trailer came out. Some of our discussion and speculation may now sound quite dated, depending on how much you’ve been paying attention to the news about Christmas.

Ep 063: Coming Out of your Tardis

In this episode of The Web of Queer, we review the 4th Doctor story Keeper of Traken, and have a discussion on coming out.

In our discussion, we talk about how “coming out” is not a single event. With a focus on sexual and romantic orientations, we talk about the many ways to come out, how the circumstances and reasons that effect the conversation at hand, and how some of these ideas have been parralled through sci-fi.
