There's been a lot of great Doctor Who content that speaks to the global pandemic thanks to creators recruited and organized by folks such as Chris Chibnall and Emily Cook. But 2015's "Heaven Sent" seems particularly relevant as well…
Graeme Burk, co-author with Robert Smith? of WHO IS THE DOCTOR 2, stops by to talk about slow-cooker episode criticism in a time of lightning-fast hot takes (not that I'm familiar with that at all) and staying connected with Doctor Who in a stay-at-home world. (An earlier audio glitch has been fixed!)
Suddenly, there's much, much more to the Doctor–and yet this new "retcon" to the Doctor's past winds up being staggeringly respectful to everything that's gone before on television. Let's talk about a challenge to The Master–and to Doctor Who fans themselves.
On emotional Cybermen and erstwhile flat team structures.
A mostly solid story by McTighe and Chibnall, but I'm REALLY here for a Doctor-ish Yaz and a Doctor-ish Ryan.
That sound you heard was a podcaster's brain exploding, trying to figure out how to compress everything from "Fugitive of the Judoon" into roughly two minutes. Listener, this episode was A LOT.
