2MTL 462: Atropositive ("Once, Upon Time")
Space opera? Narrative connections and context emerging? Yes, please: this is the episode that gave me faith in Chris Chibnall's arc. (This episode dedicated to the memory of NPR Books editor Petra Mayer.)
2MTL 461: Sontar…huh. ("War of the Sontarans")
In which the laudable advancement of the Doctor Who: Flux story and the "rehabilitation" of the Sontarans as villains bumps straight into how I feel about war movies.
2MTL 460: The Opposite of Episodic ("The Halloween Apocalypse")

"Always, scribble, scribble, scribble! Eh! Chloe Webber?" After a couple of months away to recharge the batteries, there's no more jarring compare-and-contrast to Doctor Who of 2020 than Doctor Who of 2006's "Fear Her."
2MTL 454: It's Always Time to Engage
Why is it difficult for so many fans to engage with Doctor Who's politics?
Constance Gibbs: "For Black Doctor Who fans, the TARDIS is a legendary, loaded image"
