Featuring the voices of Adam Shaftoe and J.M. Frey.

Topics under discussion include: Big themes from the first half of the season, Russell T. Davies vs Steven Moffat as show runner, the mythology of the Doctor, the many faces of Rory, LGBT themes in Doctor Who, historical appropriation in Doctor Who and the return of Torchwood.

We also managed to connect Doctor Who to Jane Austen and Space Battleship Yamato.

NB: It was Dr. Hiromi Mizuno at the University of Minnesota whose name I could not remember during the discussion on themes of gender identity and national ethos in Space Battleship Yamato.
