Look Into My Eyes

Nov 15, 2023

On this week's episode of Look Into My Eyes we look at Episode 2 of The Demon Headmaster, covering Chapter's 6 - 11 of the book and there's a lot to talk about! We cover the subtle and not so subtle shifts in Lloyd and Dinah's relationship and the outworking of that into the rest of series, scenes in the Prefect's Council and the increasing presence of the Headmaster and even ask the question "Where Is Mr Hunter?". All this and more, with our usual smattering of jokes, Easter Eggs, and an unhealthy level of Rose analysis, on this week's Look Into My Eyes.
