I am extremely thrilled to be a guest panellist on my favourite live podcast, Splendid Chaps. This coming Sunday 13th October, I’ll be joining the Splendid Chaps and fellow guest panellist Richard Watts to discuss David Tennant’s Tenth Doctor, and sex and relationships in Doctor Who more generally. I’ll be the panel’s resident (but conflicted) Ten fangirl; while I have vague memories of watching Classic Who as a child, Ten was really my first doctor. I’m also looking forward to getting my teeth into the problematic (and occasionally exploitative) aspects of the Doctor as a sex symbol, as well as the show’s increasing focus on heterosexual love plots.
Recording starts from 5pm, at the Gasometer Hotel, 484 Smith St Collingwood (cnr Alexandra Pde). Further details, including ticket bookings, can be found here.
The podcast will be available a few weeks after recording.
