About this Episode

Season 4 of The Moment is on its way! But it is not quite ready yet.

In the meantime, we're revisiting some episodes from previous seasons of The Moment.

This week, we revisit episode 2.03 with 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.
