  • Karmic forces, pandemic narratives, the sexuality casting controversy, temporal exceptionalism, empathy, irony, and finely-honed tragedy are discussed in this podcast about the third episode of It’s a Sin, Russell T Davies’ drama about HIV in 1980s England.

    Neo, Ingiga, and Tomtit discuss episode 3 of It’s a Sin, set in 1986. The main discussion is purely about episode 3, not spoiling anything from further episodes. We did this because It’s a Sin is a rich, interestingly-written Russell T Davies series, that deserves each of its episodes to be discussed on their own terms. However, since the series has also been released all-at-once, after a clearly marked transition in the discussion, there is a Sin Spoiler Zone, where we recorded a later, smaller discussion discussing episode 3 in the context of all five episodes of the series. If you have only seen the first three episodes of It’s a Sin, do feel free to click away before that Sin Spoiler Zone. If you’ve seen all five episodes of It’s a Sin, do feel free to listen to our more spoilery discussion there!
