Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

This week we’re back to series 7a, and we finish it off! Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Lynne as we discuss the final episode with Amy and Rory. Is it a well-constructed send-off? Does it even make sense? Do we really care? Are the feels more important?

What do you think about this ep? Let us know in the comments!

  1. Lovely, chewy, vulnerable episode, ladies! Exactly the kind of thing that keeps me coming back week after week!

    Thank you for the link to the PS, and the discussion of it. It is indeed emotional, and so good (she write’s tearily). Also, thanks for your discussion of women vs men aging, very true. I discovered that younger colleagues treated me as an older colleague until they discovered that I was as old as (then older than) their parents – that’s a different category, and lesser. I did what I’d scorned in older women and stopped being upfront about my age.
    I think that the Doctors sort of addressed the view of old appearing men in “Twice Upon a Time” when Doctor one said he’d expected to be younger and Capaldi’s Doctor responded strongly that he was younger. Just a passing reference, but I thought telling.
    Good episode, thank you for all of them.

  3. I love that headcanon “only in the book” fix for the silly hard-to-miss statue! =:o}
