About this Episode

This week, I'm joined by comedian and writer Riley Silverman, to discuss a conversation between the Doctor and Clara from Peter Capaldi's 2014 debut, Deep Breath. We talk about what this moment meant for the character of the Twelfth Doctor, the tattoo this episode inspired Riley to get, and the resonance between this moment and the events in her own life at the time it aired.
