IT’S THE WRAP UP! Our second season has come to a close, and we are finally done with Rose! (For now) Tune in to find out what series two got for it’s final grade (we were nice and scaled it), our thoughts on series two as a whole, who was the Hero at the end of it all, Talia talks about the Twelfth Doctor as much as they can during a Tenth Doctor era episode, and we combine humor with talking about our usual favorite topics like toxicity, empire, and grief.
The time has come to discuss ARMY OF GHOSTS and DOOMSDAY. Hold tight to your void-defying clamps as Talia and Lucia tackle one of the most infamous double episodes of NuWho to date and discuss agency, patriarchy, Empire, the limits of psychic paper, and why on Earth the Doctor and Rose are taking their laundry to Jackie when THEY have a washing machine and SHE’S running down to the Laundromat with Elton! Tap in to hear the Wibbly Wobbly’s epic conclusion to Series 2: is Ten/Rose a love story for the ages? Or a cautionary tale against the dangers of toxic relationships?
It’s time to discuss FEAR HER and Talia and Lucia are once more talking about racism and portrayals of abuse in Doctor Who. The Isolus is a baby with way too much power and Tenrose is impossible not to ship. Listen to our mixed feelings on this episode now!
In this episode Lucia and Talia tackle the infamous Love & Monsters with the help of their friend Priya.
We gush about Jackie and her journey, discuss gender roles in fandom spaces, and try to get to the bottom how an Abzorbaloff even … works?
Are there secret hidden depths to Love & Monsters or is it really the worst episode of Doctor Who EVER?
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.
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.
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.
