Welcome to Doctor Her!

Doctor Her is a blog about all things Doctor Who, from a feminist perspective. While Doctor Who, Torchwood, and Sarah Jane Adventures have all been written about by feminists online, there are very few spaces where Doctor Who and feminism are the focus. This is one of those places. Here you may find reviews of Torchwood books, discussions of politics in the old series vs. the new series, feminist critiques and praises of Moffat’s time as showrunner, analyses of Doctor Who comic books, discussion of the fan practices (fanfic, cosplay, crafting) in the Doctor Who community, and write-ups of Doctor Who conventions and Doctor Who panels at science fiction conventions, all from a feminist perspective. We hope that we may be a source of material for feminist fans, as well as contributing to a long and productive conversation about feminism within the Doctor Who franchise. You can read more about our mission at Doctor Her on our About page. Cheers, and enjoy!

    I’m so excited to see this blog! As a fan of the Doctor and a big proponent of feminist/gender research, this is right up my alley. Thanks for getting it started!

  2. […] bet! Is this a book I would use to aide me in that? Not likely. Sidenote: I am still upset that DoctorHer has not talked about The Angels Take […]

  3. So happy my wife found this site. Aside from awesome feminist pieces, the articles I’ve read so far are also just damn good critiques. Thanks so much!
