Verity! Episode 47 – Political Science Fiction

VerityEpisode47-210This week we are sadly Deb-free, but we forge ahead without our fearless leader. Join Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we discuss the role of politics in Doctor Who. How big a role does politics play in Who? Turns out, a bigger role than some (or at least one) of us expected. How do we feel about the Doctor getting involved? That seems to depend largely on context.

What do you think about the role of politics in Doctor Who throughout the ages? And what are your thoughts on the Doctor’s role in politics? Let us know in the comments!
