About this Episode

This week, I'm joined by Deb Stanish, to discuss a moment from 2005's The Parting of the Ways, the finale of Christopher Eccleston's first and only season as the Doctor. We discuss how Rose's perspective really spoke to Deb's personal history, the Doctor's history of putting companions' safety before their agency, and the aspects of the scene that some fans find troublingly classist.
