Thank you for another excellent podcast episode.
I like that the World War 1 theme is more obvious in the Christmas special than it was in ‘Death in Heaven’ and the many other eps that subtly reference WW1 and military service (eg Danny Pink and the experience of returned servicemen, Davros and the mines, tanks invented in 1915 and the Dr rode one in 2015, etc).
Capaldi became the Doctor in 2013, so the entire 100th anniversary of WW1 has been in Capaldi’s era. I believe that’s why his themes have been war, memory and recovering from the effects of war.
