About this Episode

This week, I'm joined by Connie Gibbs, to discuss a moment from 2017's The Pilot, the premiere of Peter Capaldi's third and final series as the Doctor, and the episode that introduces him to companion Bill Potts. We discuss how Bill's family history resonated with Connie's own, the brilliance of Bill's dynamic with the Doctor and how that brilliance was let down, and how a memento can tie us to someone who's no longer with us.
