The Gayest Doctor – Doctor Who: City of Death / The Bravest Knight

With a back-catalogue spanning more than half a century, and 14 actors playing the same character, there’s a lot to cover when it comes to Doctor Who. This week we discuss 1979’s City of Death, a series of episodes from the tenure of the beloved Fourth Doctor, Tom Baker.

 

Back in the present, we watch The Bravest Knight, an animated kids show on Hulu about a knight in training and her gay dads. We also cover the predictably vocal opposition the show received for depicting same sex couples in a positive light.

 

If you want to tell us we’re going to hell for encouraging children to live a life of perversion, please do so via a review on Apple Podcasts!
