About 18 months ago, Erin didn’t like the idea of a female Doctor, despite being generally pro-badass-female-characters. Well, we have a new Doctor incoming, and she’s got boobs. We unpack some of the implications of this, for ourselves as fans as well as on the whole, and also take a deeper look at the relationships between past Doctors and their companions and how having a female Doctor might solve some of the problems we’ve seen in the past (and what new problems could now have an opportunity to arise).
Also, we talk about some other gender flips (“oh shit, sweet flips”) in mainstream media, how they have worked, and whether they have worked.
Also also, sorry-not-sorry for getting that song stuck in your head. Erin’s been singing it for three days now.
Thank you to Jamie Chahine for our theme song, “Did You Guys Know There Was A Ladder Down Here?” and to Emily Kardamis (@corruptedgem) for our cover art.
