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?
