We’re back to our regularly scheduled episodes covering series two with THE IDIOT’S LANTERN! And… we didn’t like it. We did some thinking about how we might change the episode if we rewrote it ourselves, did some deep thinking about intergenerational conflict, and discussed troubling portrayals of abuse.
Tune in for this bonus minisode as Talia and Lucia discuss LEGEND OF THE SEA DEVILS. We debate the importance of character arcs versus plot structure, gush about Thasmin, and can’t help but comment on those outfits.
Get ready for our take on TOOTH AND CLAW! We discuss all the things we love and hate and love to hate about this episode, continue to voice our distress about Rose’s characterization, and touch on topics such as religion, faith, patriarchy, feminism, racism, nationalism, and erasure of identity all hidden within the narrative.
It’s time for the Empty Child and the Doctor Dances! Nancy steals the show, Talia and Lucia continue to have extraordinary amounts of feels, and EVERYBODY LIVES!
It’s time for THE UNQUIET DEAD and boy! Do we have a lot to talk about. Sneed is the worst, Gwenyth deserves better, and Rose really needs to get off her high horse (and find a more suitable dress!)
