A queer and feminist podcast where Skye (they/them) and Brenna (she/her) watch and discuss episodes of Doctor Who.
yaz said GAY PANIC, a dan we can "get on board" (🥁) with, and practical effects over everything, forever!
the doctor does it for the marys of the world, the black archive goes off the RAILS (SHAKE. THE. TABLE.), and our flag means we hope the sea devils are fun.CW: discussion of ableism and ablest language.

it’s a #gally1 wrap-up, y'all! ::airhorn:: we also repent for our joseph williamson slander, camp out for a bit on camp, and talk about karvanista, who is, in fact, a very good boy
Nick briggs brought some sauce this episode, dan has been reading all our a03 fics and 🗣YASMIN KHAN IS A QUEER PAKISTANI MUSLIM WOMAN IN LOVE WITH THE DOCTOR
JUST LET THEM KISS ALREADY, diane saves the whole damn universe, and anyone who says segun’s work is too atmospheric can see brenna after class.

what in the sacred timeline is going on? we still love sinister team rocket and we don't hate danvanista? 😂 Doctor Who: The Real-Life History of Mary Seacole by THEE Amanda-Rae Prescott: https://www.denofgeek.com/tv/doctor-who-the-real-life-history-of-mary-seacole/
We coulda had a whole season of precious, bickering Thasmin, protect Diane at all costs, and the category is…sugar skull royalty 👑
we talk all about our recent Great British Bake Off obsession, debate the optics versus the material results of “progressive” DW, speculate about the new sugar skull aliens 👀✨ in this upcoming series and of course give an update from our lonely corner: unpopular opinions on RTD's return.
we attempt to remember how to cast our pods, this episode has everything: foucault, homophobia, racism, helvetica neue and we talk about how the timeless children additions to canon make the doctor one of us, one of us, ONE OF US
the wheels really fall off on this one, we talk about how this is like zygons but better, we attempt to sing the unsingable, and *can* yaz be lifted out of this episode???? unclear.
we are BEGGING lord byron to shut up, we share DW staff rumors to try and manifest them into reality, and we stand in awe of both mary shelley's and maxine alderton's brilliance. c/w: we briefly talk about miscarriages in the black archive.
where *doesn’t* it say that officer patel has a wife??, the number of hand puns in this episode is high.... it’s very high, and our math is bigger on the inside.
we react to the series 13 festive special, revolution of the daleks !! we SAID go re-read nicole's article on color blind casting in doctor who. for good health. pass it along... https://www.denofgeek.com/tv/doctor-who-the-complications-of-color-blind-casting/
we are concerned for this episode’s lack of basic fire safety, love the Doctor playing doctor 👩🏼⚕, and 🗣 IF THE DOCTOR IS A ROMANTIC, LET THEM HAVE A ROMANCE!
vinay’s script is perfect, Ruth!Doctor deserves a better latte, and we would love to don our doc martens and geek out about capaldi with jo martin.
the american dream doesn’t exist, we discuss how the writing has underserved both jodie and the show and 🗣LET THIRTEEN WEAR PERIOD COSTUMES. ...oh and edison can STILL get bent!
we react to the revolution of the daleks trailer!!
Kane is a Karen, this script needs to just pick ONE side story, and yaz 100% says f*ck, gums OUT evergreen tweet brought to you by Black TARDIS: https://twitter.com/BlackTARDIS/status/1216785341937381376?s=20
sacha dhawan is always at an 11, 🗣 THE SOUNDTRACKS SHOULD HAVE MORE TRACKS 🗣, and we propose a moratorium on WW episodes.
we are in awe of the doctors circa 2001 RAZR phone, we jam to segun’s swingin eighths, and 13 has the full range of BDE.
we decry the total disregard for scant arrow supplies, tosin cole’s jaw clenches speak volumes, and always more women in welding helmets.
white lady dread adjacent hairstyles, we love backpack, and the communists (r)evolution from i am to WE ARE clever. as promised...communist cat meme for your entertainment: https://twitter.com/anne_theriault/status/1283485518685249536/photo/1
ribbons whomst?? we admire the foresight to pack a sarnie, and an infuriating waste of sharon d. clarke’s incredible talents.
yaz is our precious slytherpuff, alan cumming carries the entire episode on his tony-award winning shoulders, and ryan brings it home with the graceful dismount.

PTING BUTT, we ruminate on the mundane -isms of this episode, and a Steve Jobs approved space ship.
we BACK, we’re never not thinking about razmataz, and consent in the WILD in doctor who??
we sing a love song for organizers, Rosa is indeed a Hero, and we roundly denounce self-congratulatory white fragility and the deeply bad accents.
it's here. the OTP! we make a motion to change it permanently to “moominbeans,” and we stan a queen who has a tiny version of herself on her console,
Donna Noble is forever a GIFT, Wilfred Mott is a bucket of adorable smiles and Black Lives Matter.

It's here- 13's debut! Early signs of Chibnall's teeth obsession, The Doctor is an actual child, and Graham can fuck off.
one last spin around the Toyota TARDIS, we cry, cry again over losing capaldi, terrarium is the surveillance state, and finding new, weird ways to be kind.
the banal sexism of the angel in the TARDIS household, the Doctor thinks fucking not!!!, and we shoot ourselves in the back
TARDIS Helpline Bling, Brenna does the math that they do for us in the next episode, Moffat STILL has a scaling problem, and how DARE you use the theater against the gays!!! Rebecca's really thoughtful and straight fire post: “I’m her best enemy”: Viewing the development of the Doctor/Master relationship as a disabled woman https://t.co/ONGqH53NvH?…
the Nod transcends thousands of years of history, the vainglority of it all and we tell the Doctor to lay off the Harry Potter juice.
Queen Iraxa’s infinity sarcophagus, we drag Dafoe from hell and back, also NO COOKIES FOR GATISS.
a sloppy knock-off 1984, brenna says “wtf” 162738388 times, and a detailed plot summary of incredibles 2.
knock off colin firth, a baffling use of the word "consent", and we are all ready to play the big pyramid game. oh and its all white men's fault.
let Bill finish a date 2020™, the Doctor signs his email to himself with a kiss, and Moffat may have one (1) cookie.
we yell about burning capitalism in a cleansing fire, blasting ableism off the face of the planet, retiring those tired gender norms, and putting racism in a civic to fuck. off. Jamie Mathieson's writing on the creation of this episode: http://www.jamiemathieson.com/techno-zombies http://www.jamiemathieson.com/oxygen-origin http://www.jamiemathieso…
we tell some knock knock jokes, we have some dranks, we peek into the gaping maw of existential dread and say “that’s gay”.
