Discussion of the Doctor and Taoism by Nightsky on Nov 17th 2009

"That his impulses are generally good--compassion, empathy, mercy--is kind of beside the point. In surrendering to them, he's giving in to power; and, in Taoism as in life, the people who want power are the very people who probably shouldn't have any.

Discussion of the Martha Jones characterization by theangryblackwoman on May 9th, 2007

"So Doctor Who and Torchwood get a big A+ in my book. I love watching well-written SF shows. Add the excellent way in which they incorporate non-white, non-heterosexual characters makes them even better."

Discussion of the 2008 Christmas Special:

"In the end, perhaps the episode was a critique of patriarchy and feminism. Feminism that become an inflexible meta-narrative is to be rejected as it threatens to become an evil ,oppressive (and Christianity-like) system; yet the tragedy portrayed by the episode is that a real heroine (a character called Rosita, who helps many children to be saved) ends the epsiode merely as a nanny."
