‘Doctor Who’ Season 1 Reflections & Next Season Talk (Cosmic Circle Podcast Ep. 58)

Share this:

It’s hard to believe that Doctor Who season 1 on Disney + is over when it feels like it’s just started. Ncuti Gatwa’s first season as the 15th Doctor is over, but that doesn’t stop the excitement that we’re feeling about it. From the moment that Gatwa appeared on our screens in the third special to him meeting his companion Ruby Sunday (Millie Gibson), so many moments have taken our breath away and left us speechless. We were not speechless, though, as we needed to get together and break it all down in our latest Doctor Who discussion!

Join host Brian Kitson and writers Wiktor Reinfuss and Cameron Brook as they discuss their highs and lows from the most recent batch of episodes, such as the barriers that showrunner Russell T. Davies is breaking down in the long-running sci-fi series, their favorite episodes, and why, and where they think the next season of Doctor Who is headed. Do you think they enjoyed the re-introduction of the Pantheon of Gods? You’ll have to listen to the podcast to find out!
