Ep 083: The Curse of Bad Representation

In this episode, we review the Seventh Doctor story The Curse of Fenric, and have a discussion about the representation of physical disability in Doctor Who.

In our review of The Curse of Fenric, we try to figure out just what happened in this story. What did we think of the relationship between Ace and the Doctor? Does this version of Doctor Who vampires work for us?

In our discussion, we examine the representation of physical disability in Doctor Who, and in media more generally. What are some examples of good representation, and where do things go wrong?
