About this Episode

This week, I'm joined by Mikayla Micomonaco, to discuss a moment from 2018's The Woman Who Fell to Earth, the first episode to star Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor. We talk about the trends in Doctor Who that had brought Mikayla to consider quitting the show, the aspects of this episode that brought them back in, and how far the show still has left to go.

As there were no recordings, I’ve included the written version that I spoke from. Please note that this piece was written to be delivered as a talk, so the all caps and punctuation were reminders for me, not necessarily intended for the audience.
