In this episode, Shana and Daniel are joined by Jessica from The Web of Queer to do a general recap of Doctor Who Series 9. They meander a bit, but basically circle around issues of representation, queerness, and gender, specifically as they relate to Ashildur, the Zygons, and of course the "Schrodinger's Queer," Clara. Also briefly discussed is the announcement that Chris Chibnall will be the next showrunner of Doctor Who.
