Time And Relative Dimensions In ... Gender

A well-conceived and enjoyable mix of alternate history, feminism and fandom is available here. Probably best appreciated by Brits, this is a parallel television universe that I would love to be able to tune in to. I think all of the choices map very well on to their male Gallifreyan counterparts. Of course, if there is a television series that captures the crossover between speculative and weird realism for me, it would be the 1979-1982 BBC series, Sapphire and Steel. Withdrawn objects, vibrant matter, time as an object and agentival, a being that exists in every photograph ever taken. Scary, weird fiction/realism at its televisual best.
