Every week, the Flight Through Entirety team call up to discuss our first impression of the latest episode of the Jodie Whittaker era of Doctor Who.
Legend of the Sea Devils
The Whittaker era is heading towards its inexorable end and dragging this podcast along with it, so it’s time to take a quick penultimate break in nineteenth-century China, where we watch a lot of villagers being killed, a statue breaking open or something, a mysterious sea monster with no apparent plot function, and the non-awaited return of some rubber masks from the 1970s. And, of course, the relationship between the Doctor and Yaz runs into serious fluogeomagnetic issues.
Eve of the Daleks
It’s New Year’s Eve 2021, the Doctor’s plan to take a holiday on a sentient beach goes horribly wrong, and instead she is forced to participate in a Covid-addled New Year’s Day special. Hilarity ensues. The Doctor’s plan to take a holiday on a sentient beach goes horribly wrong, and instead she is forced to participate in a Covid-addled New Year’s Day special. Hilarity ensues.

In a surprising conclusion to this epic tale, the Doctor finds love in the most unexpected of places, Bel struggles with her application to join the Belfast branch of the CWO, Swarm and Azure’s plans to open a nightclub on Atropos go horribly wrong, seven billion of Karvanista’s cousins go to live on a farm in the country, and Yaz and Dan are here too, apparently. Time to farewell the Flux for now: it’s The Vanquishers.
Survivors of the Flux
This week, Nathan, Simon and Brendan find ourselves racing around both the universe and the world in search of exciting, hilarious and weird things to put into a television episode. And the Doctor’s wicked stepmother wants to have a word with her. Several hundred words, in fact.
Village of the Angels
A solid 9 out of 10 from us. It’s Village of the Angels.
Once, Upon Time
This week, we’re lurking in our own timestreams, reliving the moment a few days ago when we first saw Once, Upon Time: Todd keeps checking his watch, Brendan is still annoyed about the whole satsuma thing, James is feeding his tamagochi and rubbing his belly, while Nathan is wondering why the exam he’s turned up to without any pants on is being supervised by Mandip Gill. It’s the sort of thing that only happens Once, Upon Time.
Excellent podcast beginning to end. And very accessible for NuWho-era watchers.
Great podcast. Happy I found one that releases so soon after episodes. The only problem is the audios a bit iffy which I wouldn’t care too much about normally but there are points where people are completely unintelligible. Anyway, great work
