    Ep 102: Hello and Goodbye

    31/12/2019 Duration: 29min

    In this episode we review the Fourth Doctor story The Face of Evil. In our review, we discuss Leela’s introduction story. What did we think of how her character is initially introduced? Where did we have problems with the choices made for this story? And now we’re sad to say that the podcast is going on indefinite hiatus. We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished with The Web of Queer, but unfortunately due various reasons we’ve had to acknowledge that it’s time for the podcast to end for now. Thank you so much to all of our listeners, we truly appreciate you all. That isn’t to say we’re gone forever, we might show up again with an episode here or there, and maybe someday we’ll be able to come back to the podcast on a regular basis.
