Welcome back to Don’t Blink. This week we will be reviewing “Fugitive of the Judoon”. This is the 5th episode of the 12th season of “Doctor Who”. Starring Jodie Whittaker (and Jo Martin?} as the Doctor!
This fantastic episode sees the Doctor and her “Fam” come face to face with a Judoon task force. That’s right, the Judoon are back! This time the are out of their jurisdiction and on planet Earth in search of a wanted criminal. The Doctor and company must confront the bureaucratic Judoon while tracking down the fugitive in order to prevent any more collateral damage. In the process they will discover that all is not as it seems as they trick the Judoon, uncover the identity of who sent the task force, and reveal a secret and mystery that may be the biggest twist in the shows history. This one is going to change things forever!
This milestone of an episode gives us the first iteration of the Doctor as a person of color! As if that wasn’t enough, to double down on this awesome and momentous occasion, Vinay Patel even went so far as to make the Doctor Female again. While this is undoubtedly quite a controversial choice (both the race and gender of this new Doctor, and the story arch), i applaud it and hope all who watch enjoy it as well.
As Wayne and Jada review what they liked and didn’t like about the episode, they also discuss listener feedback and go over unanswered questions and share fan theories. Remember, don’t blink, don’t even blink.
