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 23 -- Random Fandom Episode Generator: The Fires of Pompeii: Smoke. Chickens. Chaos.

Just on the tail end of a American Thanksgiving celebrations and chaos, here is the newest episode of 'Terminus', wherein I discuss the S4 story, 'The Fires of Pompeii'. All as a continuation, of course, of my ongoing 'Random Fandom Episode Generator' series.

Inside you'll find squee about regeneration-related anniversaries, Doctor Who on big screens in large dark rooms, Doctor and Donna shipping love, and lots and lots (possibly too much) of geeking about Classical Studies-type things.

Anyway, I hope you all will join me for my review and episode discussion. And, as always, glad to have you all aboard. Enjoy the ride!

Terminus Podcast -- Episode 22 – Bigger on the Inside: The Face of Evil: Edge of Sevateem

We are returned! We are here!

And on this episode of 'Terminus', I discuss Leela of the Sevateem's debut story 'The Face of Evil'. All as a continuation, of course, of my ongoing 'Bigger on the Inside' series about some of my favorite companion's first stories. This one is especially happy-making and sentimental for me, by the way, as Leela was actually my very first companion back in the day when I was young.

Also on this episode, you'll find some belated recommendations of Spooky Doctor Who stories from both the new and classic series for Halloween fun (I'd honestly hoped to have this out by Halloween, natch, but sadly it was not to be!), excitement about Dalek-related potential social gatherings, musings on the mysterious Janice Thorn, a bit of scratchy sore throat on my end, the Doctor as a Mountain Man, a manipulative and schizophrenic AI playing psychological games, hoarding tests FTW, and quite a bit of a meditation on eugenics.

This is probably the longest episode I've ever done, as I just found I had SO MUCH to talk about, so remember that the time stamps below are your friend to help you navigate through everything to make things easier for you. Still, I hope you all will join me for my review and episode discussion. And, as always, glad to have you all aboard. Enjoy the ride!
