Ep 167 – The Invasion of the Companion’s Companion

This time we feel like we’re fully on track when it comes to companions picking up companions. Join Deb, Erika, Liz, and Tansy as we chat about the amazing Isobel Watkins and her relationship with Zoe (and the rest of the TARDIS crew) in “The Invasion”.

What do you think of Isobel? Is she subversive in her femininity? Is Zoe actually her companion? Or is she flighty and not as great as we think? Let us know in the comments!

Episode 132 – Meta Mind Robbery

It’s time to talk about something Tansy loves! Join Deb, Erika, and the aforementioned Tansy as we delve into the Land of Fiction and talk about metatextuality, rearranging faces, Medusas, and unicorns!

Have you seen this story? Did you love it like we did? Do you have other metatextual recommendations? (And yes. We did totally miss The Girl Who Loved Doctor Who, though that’s kind of the opposite!) Let us know in the comments!
