Episode 3: Could this be… character development? Exploring Doctor Who fanfic with Amanda-Rae Prescott

Join me in conversation with freelance entertainment journalist Amanda-Rae Prescott, as we take a deep dive into the modern era of Doctor Who via the fanfic Grounded by Flyorine. Herein we discuss Thasmin, the ridiculousness of certain fanfics and tropes, call out lack of canonical character development, and relish in the opportunities of fanfiction for expanding on character and picking up plot threads. The additional fanfic mentioned in the episode is Corona Australis, also by Flyorine. Both of them can be found on Ao3. A transcript for this episode can be found at

You can find Amanda-Rae on Twitter @amandarprescott and on her website Her Ao3 handle lies in secret.
