Oi! Spaceman: Adventures in Media Criticism
Split Personalities (City of Death)

In this episode, Shana and Daniel are joined by JB Anderton of the Who37 podcast in discussing the Douglas Adams classic: City of Death. First though, lots of discussion of Steven Moffat and the general failures of the last couple of years of Doctor Who. They then discuss some personal history among the three of them, the relationship between Romana II and the Fourth Doctor, and debate the ethics of sexual consent with a maggot spaghetti man. All that and comparisons between Clara Oswald's being split in time with the Scaroth.
