In today’s episode we jump into the abyss and talk about some of our favorite episodes from series two—The Impossible Planet and The Satan Pit. We discuss the portrayals of religion and slavery, and actually have some nice things to say about Rose for once.
Talia and Lucia are back to talking about series two, where pre-revolutionary France is on a spaceship, the Doctor gets over the fact that Reinette isn’t a seven-year-old way too quickly, we gush over Madame de Pompadour, get vocal about our dislike of certain tropes in Doctor Who and Moffat’s writing, and advocate for why you don’t need trauma in your life to appreciate the good things.
Season two is just getting started with NEW EARTH! Talia is outraged at all the cat slander, Lucia has thoughts about scientific journals, we have all the love for Cassandra, and hypothesize about what is on the Face of Boe’s Spotify playlist.

Reality TV is more dangerous than ever, and the Daleks are back—it’s time for the Series One finale with BAD WOLF and THE PARTING OF THE WAYS! Talia is crying about everything, and it’s Lucia’s turn to be frustrated by Rose. We argue over a certain character’s death, discuss the Doctor’s struggles with genocide, and grapple with saying goodbye.
It’s the year 200,000 and Adam is THE WORST. Talia loves Cathica and Lucia seriously questions the ethics of 10 minute intensive brain surgery as we dive head long into THE LONG GAME.
SO MUCH HAPPENS in this episode, Talia embraces and Lucia rejects magic in science fiction, Doctor Who somehow gets us to cry over Daleks of all things, the Adam makes his debut (but is he really the Adam in the room?) and we constantly ask the question WHY WON’T PEOPLE LISTEN TO THE DOCTOR AND RUN!?
It’s THE END OF THE WORLD and the Doctor has TRAUMA so let’s strap in and get to talking about all the things that went horribly wrong and what things went just right. Talia gets emotional, Lucia loses it over the science, neither of them cares for all the isms, it’s a rough ride of an episode, but we make it through!
