Terminus: A Doctor Who Podcast
A queer woman's perspective on Doctor Who, both the classic and new series, as well as its various spin-offs and ephemera.
Terminus Podcast -- Episode 10 – He's A Magic Man: The Magician's Apprentice

A little later than I anticipated -- still getting used to fitting in all the podcast work all by my lonesome! -- but here is my discussion of the S8 opening story, "The Magician's Apprentice"! Of course, how this story is going to end is the grand mystery of the hour, but that's cool, I still found there was more enough to talk about within part one (and what a part one it was!).

I'm back to the full-style episode format for now, along with the return of my old friend, Happy Fandom Time (which there is so much to be happy about in the Whoniverse these days -- it was hard to contain myself!). My voice is admittedly still a bit gravelly (though I did take care to edit out any coughs), but I think everything is a-ok.

Anyway, join me on this episode as I gush about our newest episode of Doctor Who. And, as always, glad to have you all aboard. Enjoy the ride!

Terminus Podcast -- Mini Episode 2 – The Promised Land: Doctor Who S8 Overview

Finally, here's my belated thoughts on Series 8 and the incumbent Twelfth Doctor, which are admittedly -- spoiler! -- a full-on love fest. This was recorded the next day after I recorded my previous episode about the 10th anniversary of New!Who, so I apologize that my voice was still a bit crackly from getting over that sore throat, but I think it sounds basically all right (besides didn't a lot of classic Hollywood sirens have raspy voices? Um... not that I'm a classic Hollywood siren in any sense!).

Again, this is a 'mini-episode' of sorts, and again, its admittedly not that short despite the diminutive episode status, but as I said before, I just wanted to have a breather to rework the schedule going forward, so I did this bonus-style episode. After this, Series 9 is starting up and I'm planning on reviewing those stories as they come out and then, gods willing, hopefully this Podcast-Train will no longer be derailed (also, fingers crossed that there's no homicidal ancient soldier-mummy systematically killing everyone on said Podcast-Train, by the way, because that would just be very, very awkward). Choo choo!

Anyway, join me on this episode as I gush about series 8 of Doctor Who, including extolling the virtues of PCap's lovely eyebrows and Jenna's smashing flapper dress. And, as always, glad to have you all aboard. Enjoy the ride!

IT'S ALIVE! Galvanizing lightning has struck, the stars have aligned, the hecatomb of Daleks sacrificed, and despite recording with a bit of a scratchy-and-sore throat, a new episode is now in the can! It's debatable if it is a 'proper' episode, I suppose, as the format is a bit different from usual, so I've decided to just call it a 'mini-episode' (though admittedly, its not very short or anything). I'm just now trying to get back on the horse and rework the recording schedule going forward, since so much has happened between this episode and the last one. SO MUCH!

Either way, I'm back now, giving this another go, with a chat about the 10th Anniversary of the new series and a look back at the episode that started it all, 'Rose'. I also have some new station idents from Andrew Cartmel and Sylvester McCoy to debut as a little bonus, because, well, they make me super-happy!

Anyway, many, many apologies for the extraordinarily long wait, but also many thank-yous to those who've been listening all this time and cheering me on to return to my podcast again. Join me on this episode as I chat about ten years of the new series of Doctor Who and also the episode Rose, the latter of which I'm not very nice about, to be honest, so you've been warned!

And, as always, glad to have you aboard. Enjoy the ride!
