Manage episode 337306764 series 3364175
The Doctor and Rose find themselves seperated at the height of the London Blitz, where a strange boy in a gas mask is making everyone very uncomfortable by constantly asking for his mummy. This naturally made us think of motherhood, and the societal expectations that come with that. Cause let's face it, when it comes to motherhood, you're judged harshly for whatever choices you make.
Please be aware that we can be a bit sweary. Soz not soz.
We acknowledge Māori as tangata whenua of Aotearoa New Zealand, where we record.
