About this Episode

This week, I'm joined by Delia Gallegos, to discuss a moment from 2020's Fugitive of the Judoon. The episode aired in the middle of Jodie Whittaker's first season as the Doctor, and introduces Jo Martin as a previously unknown incarnation of the Doctor. We talk about the sheer amazing surprise of the reveal, how Jo Martin and Jodie Whittaker play on one another, and what the future may hold for this incarnation of the Doctor.
