"You know what's going on, don't you?"
"You've always known, you just can't be bothered to tell anyone! It's like it's some kind of a game and only you know the rules!"
-- Dorothy "Ace" McShane and The Seventh Doctor, Doctor Who: "The Curse of Fenric"
Returning from the farthest reaches of time and space, my good friend and co-host Jesse Jackson and I are finally back with a new episode of Next Stop Everywhere: The Doctor Who Podcast! In this episode, we review the 1989 Seventh Doctor classic, "The Curse of Fenric" starring Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred!
This time, Jesse and I discuss things like Ace referring to the Doctor as "Professor," how Sylvester McCoy's Doctor was viewed back in the late '80s, Doctor Who being blown out of the water by Star Trek: The Next Generation, Ace's story arc being brought full circle, Ace's mysterious past, the Seventh Doctor playing chess (on several levels), comparing the Seventh and Eleventh Doctors, the rare Doctor Who subject of faith, Arya on Game of Thrones, the Doctor making Ace his pet project, Judson being the Doctor Who version of Alan Turing, my personal secret origin theory of why the Doctor and Susan originally left Gallifrey, my Reverse the Reverse the Polarity segment, our initial thoughts on new Twelfth Doctor companion Bill, and more!
