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 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!

Terminus Podcast -- Episode 10 – He's A Magic Man: The Magician's Apprentice

A little later than I anticipated -- still getting used to fitting in all the podcast work all by my lonesome! -- but here is my discussion of the S8 opening story, "The Magician's Apprentice"! Of course, how this story is going to end is the grand mystery of the hour, but that's cool, I still found there was more enough to talk about within part one (and what a part one it was!).

I'm back to the full-style episode format for now, along with the return of my old friend, Happy Fandom Time (which there is so much to be happy about in the Whoniverse these days -- it was hard to contain myself!). My voice is admittedly still a bit gravelly (though I did take care to edit out any coughs), but I think everything is a-ok.

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

Terminus Podcast -- Mini Episode 2 – The Promised Land: Doctor Who S8 Overview

Finally, here's my belated thoughts on Series 8 and the incumbent Twelfth Doctor, which are admittedly -- spoiler! -- a full-on love fest. This was recorded the next day after I recorded my previous episode about the 10th anniversary of New!Who, so I apologize that my voice was still a bit crackly from getting over that sore throat, but I think it sounds basically all right (besides didn't a lot of classic Hollywood sirens have raspy voices? Um... not that I'm a classic Hollywood siren in any sense!).

Again, this is a 'mini-episode' of sorts, and again, its admittedly not that short despite the diminutive episode status, but as I said before, I just wanted to have a breather to rework the schedule going forward, so I did this bonus-style episode. After this, Series 9 is starting up and I'm planning on reviewing those stories as they come out and then, gods willing, hopefully this Podcast-Train will no longer be derailed (also, fingers crossed that there's no homicidal ancient soldier-mummy systematically killing everyone on said Podcast-Train, by the way, because that would just be very, very awkward). Choo choo!

Anyway, join me on this episode as I gush about series 8 of Doctor Who, including extolling the virtues of PCap's lovely eyebrows and Jenna's smashing flapper dress. And, as always, glad to have you all aboard. Enjoy the ride!

IT'S ALIVE! Galvanizing lightning has struck, the stars have aligned, the hecatomb of Daleks sacrificed, and despite recording with a bit of a scratchy-and-sore throat, a new episode is now in the can! It's debatable if it is a 'proper' episode, I suppose, as the format is a bit different from usual, so I've decided to just call it a 'mini-episode' (though admittedly, its not very short or anything). I'm just now trying to get back on the horse and rework the recording schedule going forward, since so much has happened between this episode and the last one. SO MUCH!

Either way, I'm back now, giving this another go, with a chat about the 10th Anniversary of the new series and a look back at the episode that started it all, 'Rose'. I also have some new station idents from Andrew Cartmel and Sylvester McCoy to debut as a little bonus, because, well, they make me super-happy!

Anyway, many, many apologies for the extraordinarily long wait, but also many thank-yous to those who've been listening all this time and cheering me on to return to my podcast again. Join me on this episode as I chat about ten years of the new series of Doctor Who and also the episode Rose, the latter of which I'm not very nice about, to be honest, so you've been warned!

And, as always, glad to have you aboard. Enjoy the ride!

So, after about six months of unintended hiatus (!), the ninth episode of 'Terminus' is now finally finished and available for you! So, life sort of got on top of me during that time, derailing me completely and utterly, but I'm back to give things another go with a belated review of the 50th anniversary story, 'The Day of the Doctor' (I've postponed the promised 'Silver Nemesis' review episode for later, since I'm shuffling my schedule around a bit to accommodate the hiatus).

Anyway, many apologies for the wait and many thank-yous to those who've been listening all this time and cheering me on to return to my podcast again. Hopefully, things will balance out soon again on this end and I can bring you more content, more frequently.

Anyway, as I said above, join me on this episode as I chat about 'The Day of the Doctor' and even get a bit saucy and naughty at times, but that's what recording at 3:00 AM will do for you. I hope no one minds too much, but I thought I'd give a warning, nonetheless.

And, as always, glad to have you aboard. Enjoy the ride!

Terminus Podcast -- Episode 8: The Episode of Rassilon: The Five Doctors

So, after a month of waiting, the eighth episode of 'Terminus' is now finally finished and available for you! Many, many apologies, of course, but now that I'm finally past all the travel and the consequent illness (the derby tournament equivalent of con crud, methinks), I'm hoping I can start to get things back on track (I've had to juggle my schedule a bit though, so I'll be doing more anniversary episodes after the 50th!). Anyway, I'm hoping just after I post this to record the next episode about 'The Silver Nemesis', though it might be out after the 50th special at this rate (which I will also be doing an episode on, of course -- don't worry!). Oh, and being as I recorded this a month ago, some of the news-y, 'Happy Fandom Time' stuff is a bit dated, so sorry about that! *embarrassed*

Anyway, join me on this episode as I chat about 'The Five Doctors'. Also I chat about the new Second Doctor episodes found (yes, this episode was recorded that long ago!), the 'Day of the Doctor' teaser trailer, some local 'Day of the Doctor' celebratory stuff, and other things making me happy in fandom right now. Oh, and apparently every time I refer to the Big Finish audio 'An Earthly Child' in this episode, I sound like I'm saying 'Unearthly Child', which is a bit funny. Oops! Sorry about that! I hope I don't confuse you too-too much!

So, anyway, as always, glad to have you aboard and enjoy the ride!

After fighting with some technical issues and going on travels around the Southeastern US, I'm finally back with the newest episode of Terminus! On this seventh episode of Terminus, join me as I chat about the serial 'The Three Doctors', unofficially the celebratory story for the 10th anniversary of 'Doctor Who'. I also chat about things like the new minisodes released with the Series 7 boxset, various trailers that have me excited, some 'Day of the Doctor' miscellany, etc. Also, some exciting news is that this is the first episode under the umbrella of the Earth Station One Network, which my podcast is now a proud member of!

Terminus Podcast -- Episode 6: Trust Me, I'm Not a Doctor: Spin-offs in the Whoniverse, Pt 1

Hoorah! Yes, the newest episode is finally here! So, on this sixth episode of the Terminus podcast (released during the two days I'm actually at home and not traveling during these two weeks!), join me as I chat about some of the more *obscure* Doctor Who spin-offs (and try and not stumble over saying 'BBV' many, many times). This time around I'm focusing on 'P.R.O.B.E.', 'The Stranger', 'The Airzone Solution', and 'Downtime', but never fear, there are more episodes on spin-offs planned for the future! *crickets* Yeah, not sure this episode has much of a target audience! Anyway, I also talk about geeking out with Andrew Cartmel on Twitter, Target books, and 50th Anniversary miscellany (specifically some bits about the BFI screenings and the Master's new anniversary-edition fob watch). Oh, and I'm *almost* back on schedule with scheduled release dates (squeezing in recording and editing between all my recent travel has proved an interesting challenge), so that is made of awesome! Until then, be sure to subscribe to the podcast either on iTunes, Stitcher, or just the RSS feed to keep up with the newest episodes as they're released. And, as always, enjoy the ride!

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 4: In Defense Of + Greetings to Our New Scottish Overlord!

On this super-duper-late fourth episode of the Terminus podcast, join me as I chat about the recent reveal of who will be the next Doctor (on which there's lots of geeking and cheering from me, of course!) and how one of my favorite classic Doctors is coming to a convention near me next year (and I'll hopefully get to meet him for the first time!). Of course, as promised, there's also the main 'In Defense Of' segments, where I come to the defense of several characters and other bits of fandom I think are often ridiculed unfairly. Admittedly, I sadly didn't have the nicest things to say about Rose Tyler a few times in the episode and while I know she's a bit of a sacred cow in fandom, I feel that many of the characters I talked about were often sacrificed at her altar and put up against her in comparison by the show. So, I argue how those comparisons failed for me. I'm honestly hoping I don't lose any listeners over that, because I know YMMV and everyone gets something different out of different characters, but at the same time, I had to be honest with my opinions. Anyway, this is the longest episode I've done so far, which probably made the timing of it even worse as its running so late due to Life Stuff (I sincerely hope to be back on schedule going forward though). So, anyway, enjoy the ride -- its a bumpy one this month!

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)!
