We live in a world where we are confronted with a beauty ideal that’s slim and fit, and as a result, many people are shamed for their size. Even our escapist fiction is rife with fat-shaming, which raises the question of where we can possibly go for relief. Join us as we delve into what Doctor Who tells us about fat.
