One thought on “The Doctor’s Companion Ep. 207 – Metaphor Egg

  1. Great job on thr show.
    1. I think this one of the worst episodes of Moffat’s and I say this as someone who loves the river song character. I know you (scott) hate river and how she was done. But there was still good moments over her character arc.

    The only saving grace of this episode was danny pink being an awesome boyfriend. Thats the only thing.

    AND the said thing was in not even mad I watched it. Im just really sad this episode is now canon in the who universe.

    The whole time I was thinking, “this is a really sexist episode. ”

    Even clara gave that women’s lib speech I was thinking, shes not talking to the doctor shes talking to Moffat. Since clara represents the audience.

    So I dont if that’s good writing or they are just out of ideas or using a bad idea.

    Then you mentioned the whole thing was a metaphor for abortion and that makes sense.

    But that still doesn’t make this episode ok.
    As male I don’t want get on a equality rant but I will end it by saying this episode really bothered me as man.
