Quick Hit: Telos AM podcast interview about Doctor Her

A while back, I was interviewed on the Doctor Who podcast Telos AM about Doctor Her. The whole podcast, which is about women and Doctor Who,  is interesting, so give it a listen, but my interview starts about 16 minutes in. We talk about Doctor Her, but also about how Doctor Who could be better, the relationship between science fiction and progressivism, and how fans are the badass part of Doctor Who.

I also wrote some thoughts about Doctor Who and intersectionality on Tumblr afterward, inspired by the interview.

At A Shouty Girl with a Scarf, you can read a hilarious bit about how things with River Song would have ended differently if she’d met a Spunky Bisexual Tumblr Girl. This is a riff off the Sassy Gay Friend videos on Youtube.

On Courtney Stoker‘s Tumblr, she talks about how she thinks Doctor Who is never intersectional (and thus feminist), but that fans can (and do!) make it so.

From a comment at Geek Feminism, a call for participants in an anthology about lady Doctors. Well, not lady Doctors, because that would be copyright-infringing, but “people who identify as female saving the world and/or universe.” The contact information for the proposer is in the comment.

NPR interviewed Steven Moffat about Doctor Who and Sherlock.
