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 15 – Pod People: The Zygon Invasion & The Zygon Inversion

Coming to you a bit later than I'd planned (bad head cold + some Jessica Jones bingeing is a deadly combination for this podcaster, apparently), here is my episode discussion of the recent Zygon 2-parter. This was definitely one of my more personal episodes and certainly most political (which is admittedly odd to me), but then since the story was very political itself, I suppose it was somewhat hard to avoid? Oh, and this was also recorded before the recent Paris attacks, so any similarities to such discussions are entirely coincidental.

In this episode, I discuss identity politics (especially when it comes to Osgood), Zygons in the closet (likely not what you think), the awesomeness that is Jenna Coleman and Peter Capaldi, and revisiting the classic 'Terror of the Zygons'. Also included is some Harry Sullivan love, random music interjections, gratuitous skating references, some podcasting shout-outs, and probably way more than you ever needed to know about how I punch my Queer Card. Also, many coughs were sacrificed to the cutting room floor, but I still managed to come off sounding quite a bit gravely again due to my sore throat.

So, anyway, I hope you all will join me for my review and discussion of both 'The Zygon Invasion' and 'The Zygon Inversion'. And, as always, glad to have you all aboard. Enjoy the ride!

Terminus Podcast -- Episode 14 – The Tide is High: The Girl Who Died and the Woman Who Lived

Herein I present a somewhat belated episode, wherein Clara completely steals the show for me, even with her little bit of screen-time in the second part, and, yeah, like a fool I'm just left making grabby hands at the screen for her. And also wherein I randomly have a bit of a go at RTD a few times during the show, which was admittedly not too pretty. I don't know, he just seemed to keep coming up like a bobbing apple or a floating witch (trying to relate things to Halloween with my awkward analogies, yo!) for some reason! I suppose that recording at 6:00 AM after being up all night brings out my...punch-drunk and ranting side, apparently? You've been warned!

Also, there's some bonus chat about polytheism, polyamory, and various other p-words, which, as I was trying a new mic set-up this time around, things all went a bit pear-shaped (another p-word!) and the plosive fixes were unfortunately needed in force, as well as a few other various technical glitches that managed to double (triple?) my usual editing time. Maybe it was all witch's curse? Sed Libera Nos a Malo! (I've obviously been watching too many Hammer Horror films recently).

Anyway, as with this episode, for the next episode I plan on reviewing the Zygon 2-parter together. That episode should hopefully drop by about a week after 'The Zygon Inversion' airs, if all goes to plan. So yeah, 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, as I try to catch up. But of course that's all up to you.

So, anyway, I hope you all will join me for my somewhat sloxicated review 'The Girl Who Died' and 'The Woman Who Lived'. And, as always, glad to have you all aboard. Enjoy the ride!
