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?
