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.


So, my episode reviewing 'The Pilot' is finally here! Yes, there were some technical errors and issues (quite a few), as well as Life Stuff that got in the way, but I bested them and finally was able to pull it all together for you here today (albeit with a bit of a sore throat that makes my voice crack much like male puberty at times, but oh well, these things happen).

Anyway, so join me as I excitedly talk about our first proper introduction to Bill Potts, discuss shades of 'Shada', play around with some Jungian interpretations and other related chat about water and reflection imagery, empathize with young awkward queers, dance for disco androids, and try to contain my burning Professor fetish.

As always, glad to have you all aboard. Do enjoy the ride!

I'm back! Yes, another (unexpected) hiatus down and here I am again!

Yeah, as I say in my introduction, I've been really behind on podcasting these last few months due to dealing with some fairly heavy medical stuff, but, despite all that, I'm hoping to get back on the saddle and really determined to get this podcast whipped back into shape.

So, in the spirit of all of that, in this return episode, you'll find my belated review for the last Christmas special, 'The Return of Doctor Mysterio'. I just really wanted to get that one covered before my foray into S10 of the new series, so that I could feel 'caught up', per se. Now, I had honestly also hoped this episode would be out before the new Doctor Who episode aired (and recorded it before then, as you'll be able to tell when I talk about it coming up), but pesky technical issues and Life Stuff slowed things down a few days, so it is a teeny bit late (speaking of which, I had to use a temporary different recording set-up, so there were a few teeny sound issues, but probably not enough for anyone to really notice). Oh well.

Anyway, again in this episode is my long overdue review of the Christmas special, as well as talk about anything from my squee about the return of Rona Munro and the Mondasian Cybermen from the Classic series, to the upcoming Atlanta Doctor Who convention Wholanta, to Bill being our first incontrovertibly gay companion on the televised series (so, yeah, not including my beloved Izzy Sinclair from the DWM comics who was also a lesbian, of course), to my great love of the superhero and comics genre, to Nice Guys (tm) and Sexy Lamps, etc.

So, yeah, 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!
