Talia and Lucia are joined by the illustrious Nicole Hill of Black TARDIS and Black Girls Create in a rousing discussion of Rise of the Cybermen and The Age of Steel! We talk about how Lumic is dramatic AF, why the Doctor’s plan is low-key cruel as all get out, what remains true for characters across universes, and consider the roots of our problems with Rose.
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.
This time Talia and Lucia aren’t alone as they discuss SCHOOL REUNION with special guest Joy Piedmont! We talk all about Sarah Jane and her importance to the series, take a deep dive into the sea of emotions contained in this episode, have a nice little tangent comparing the various modern doctors, and so much more!
It’s time for Wibbly Wobbly season two, and you might want to hold onto something because this TARDIS is in for a crash landing as we discuss THE CHRISTMAS INVASION! Talia cries in linguistics major and needs more wine, Lucia bemoans lapses in the characterization of Rose Tyler and Harriet Jones, and we finally meet Ten!
IT’S THE WRAP UP! Season one has come to a close, tune in to listen to all our thoughts on how it went, find out the final grade for series one, and hear our thoughts about what Doctor who is, was, and could have been like in the wake of the 2005 revival.

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 time for our run down of BOOM TOWN, episode nine of series one. Talia is sick of Rose and wishes for a better companion, Lucia asks us to ponder the meaning of accountability, we all aspire to that vibe you have with friends who unquestionably get you no questions asked, and we continue our crusade of cleanliness and say the quiet part out loud: those skin suits have got to stink.
It’s a double feature episode! Today we’re talking about both ALIENS OF LONDON and WORLD WAR THREE. Talia & Lucia dig into some heavy topics as they discuss fatphobia, Rose’s communication issues, the Doctor’s problems with domesticity, and whether Davros had a point.
Wherein Talia and Lucia discuss ROSE the pilot episode for the 2005 revival of the BBC flagship show DOCTOR WHO. Read on for all of our hot takes and thoughtful critiques as we tear Doctor Who apart and wax poetic about its beauty in equal measure.
