Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

Our celebration of David Fisher-penned female villains continues. Join Deb, Erika, Katrina, and Liz as we chat about Lady Adrasta and her cohort Karela. Things get a little bit Snow White and the wicked queen as far as we can tell.

    I’m loving the year of women theme, but are you able to out the episode titles in the description? I just want to make sure I watch the story before listening to the episode. Thanks and keep up the awesome work!

    • Ack! I absolutely meant to do that, and completely spaced it here. Thanks for pointing that out. I’ll be sure make sure they’re in there from here on in.

      Not sure if it’s helpful, but the story title is in the tags on the blog post (and on Twitter) and in the “subtitle” field in Apple Podcasts.

    An interesting point of compare and contrast is Queen Xanxia from ‘Pirate Planet’: she had a simple and personal goal of living forever, but was willing to sacrifice any number of inhabited planets to gain the energy resources to do so. But like Cessair of Diplos was operating from behind the scenes.

    No female villains before Cessair and Adastra?
    What about Miss Winters in Robot?

    Adastra is fun and I agree that this is a very underrated story.
