This week, I'm joined by Rachel T, to discuss a moment from The Witchfinders, a historical adventure from Jodie Whittaker's debut season in 2018. We discuss the frustrations of not seeing yourself represented on screen, the Doctor's relationship with religion, and how we find meaning in problematic stories.
