Terminus: A Doctor Who Podcast (doctor_episode)
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 5: Love and War: the Eighth Doctor, the Time War, and a Forgotten Doctor

On this also-a-bit-late fifth episode of the Terminus podcast, join me as I chat about how I define queer for myself, the Eighth Doctor television movie, thoughts about what we currently know about the Last Great Time War (possibly soon to be Jossed by the upcoming 50th anniversary special!), and the Atlanta-based fan series 'The Forgotten Doctor'. Also I squee (yes, I said squee) about things like Peter Capaldi (likely?) keeping his Scottish accent for his role as the Doctor, Doctor Puppet, the TARDIS on Google Maps, and the Doctor as Mr. Potato Head. Oh, and I thought the last episode was super-long, but this one takes the cake -- wow! I thought about editing it down a bit, but I decided to leave in everything, even if it gets a bit rambly, silly (did I really say 'WTF?' more than once? The things we do to keep it family-friendly), and littered with unfortunate poppy plosives at times. This should hopefully be the last of the late episodes (at least for a while) as I'm getting things back on schedule now. Anyway, enjoy the ride!

Terminus Podcast -- Episode 3: Unlimited Rice Pudding: Celebrating the Seventh Doctor's Era

On the third episode of the Terminus podcast, join me as I chat about the Seventh Doctor. I ramble on about my feelings regarding his character and story arc, as well as thoughts on his companions, my favorite serials of his, and, of course, the Cartmel Masterplan! Plus, there's a longer than usual Happy-Fandom-Time-cum-News segment (because there's just far too much to be excited about in fandom these days)!  Also, this is a bit of an 'under the weather episode', with me wincing from fighting a back injury (from fighting aliens, of course! Okay...maybe not), as well as donning a rather husky, gravelly voice due to a very sore throat (most of the coughs were edited out, but you'll get treated to the occasional wheeze! FUN TIMES!). So, enjoy the ride!

Terminus Podcast -- Episode 2: The Rise and Fall of the Eleventh Doctor

On the second episode of the Terminus podcast, join me as I chat about the Eleventh Doctor and my feelings about his character and story arc so far. I also discuss my thoughts on his impending regeneration and there's the intro of the newest reoccurring show component -- Happy Fandom Time! -- where I discuss what I'm currently geeking about in the world of Doctor Who. Along the way, there's also bonus sound issues I had to contend with and edit as best as possible (a plethora of clipped words and distortion, oh my!), my cat Fender making loud sounds in the background from the next room (she apparently wanted her own opinions of the Doctor known -- does anyone speak Cat?), and the occasional rant about the Tenth Doctor era (which, wow, not sure I was so ranty-pants that night -- I do like him, I swear!). Enjoy the ride (it is a bumpier one this time, but the seatbelts are quite comfy)!
