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 13 – May the Remorse Be With You: Before the Flood

So, I'm currently running about a week behind on my releases, so here's a rather belated chat from me about the recent Doctor Who episode 'Before the Flood', all coming at you from somewhere adrift in the Doctor's timeline (forgot to check the helmic regulator for more details than that!) . Yeah, methinks you guys subscribing to the Terminus RSS feed on iTunes (or any other fine podcatchers, of course!) might make things a bit easier to follow along, as my schedule has been a bit wonky as of late, but of course that's all up to you.

Oh, and relatedly, since my release dates aren't currently what I hoped for, due to Life Stuff, I'm combining my reviews for both 'The Girl Who Died' and the 'The Woman Who Lived' into ONE episode next time around, just to try to get all caught up and stuff. This may be how I attack future two-parters as well -- we shall see! WHO NOSE!

Also, I realized as I edited my somewhat rushed recording for this episode from earlier in the week, that I forgot to rate 'Before the Flood' in my actual podcast content! So, I'll give you this wee little spoiler (Avert your eyes, if need be!): I'm giving it a 4.5 out of 5. Looking back, that is the same score I gave for 'Under the Lake', as well, 0so I guess this two-parter ends up with a nice round score of 4.5 out of 5 for me. Excellent. (Er, I do hope you'll still listen even with knowing my score, though!)

So, anyway, I hope you all will join me as I review this super-shippy episode of Doctor Who. And, as always, glad to have you all aboard. Enjoy the ride!

Terminus Podcast -- Episode 12 – Here Comes The Drum: Under the Lake

Long podcast episode is long. And late. But them's the breaks during a confluence of technical issues and illness, I suppose? Still, it's finally here, nonetheless!

Now, full disclosure, this episode was actually recorded before the second part 'Before the Flood'' aired, so obviously some of my speculation and predictions didn't quite turn out to come true, of course, but, hey, some of them did! You can even play Nicole-is-right-or-wrong Bingo, if you'd like -- though I don't have any pre-made Bingo cards for the occasion, unfortunately!

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

Terminus Podcast -- Episode 11 – Sunglasses at Night: The Witch's Familiar

Despite some trials with illness and internet issues (curses, Mercury Retrograde!), this intrepid podcaster has finally prevailed and so thus, this episode is finally done and dusted and ready for your consumption. BUILD HIGH FOR HAPPINESS! Oh, wait...that's another story.

Anyway, within you will find my discussion of the conclusion of the S8 opening story, "The Witch's Familiar". Admittedly, I get a bit punch-drunk and somewhat naughty at points (woo, cold medicine!), so the listen might be entertaining or even frightening by some of your standards, but I hope you enjoy it nonetheless.

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