Ep 165 – Companions on the Orient Express

Mini-arc #3, companions collecting women companions, starts with the realization that new-Who doesn’t have many great examples of this. Join Deb, Liz, and Lynne as they discuss why that might be and how it works (or doesn’t) in the case of “Mummy on the Orient Express”. Poor Erika, who is absent, takes some serious guff.
