In this episode of Just Cos, sci-fi writer/producer extraordinaire Jane Espenson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Battlestar Galactica, Torchwood… seriously, if there’s a genre show you’ve liked from the past ten years, chances are good she’s been involved. She’s like Mark Sheppard that way.) talks the intersection of ladydom, Doctor Who, and the larger world of sci-fi. Specific topics adressed by Espenson and a vast array of Who cosplayers include how to set about writing an awesome female character (Hint: You don’t), why there are so few male TARDIS cosplayers, and which female Whedonverse alum should play the Doctor.
(*also because she’s a good writer and producer. We don’t need just one reason to love Jane Espenson.)
