2MTL 453: Within Our Confession Dials

2MTL 437: Guilt, Shame, Obligation, and Regeneration
Prompted by Erik's remembrance of Terrance Dicks in 2MTL 435, some thoughts about the modern moral character of the Doctor: how Doctors 9-12 changed the game from Terrance Dicks's model, and how the Thirteenth Doctor changes the game again.
2MTL 424: Wimbledon Nerves

2MTL 415: Entitlement?
