Recent Episodes

The Star Beast - The 14th Doctor and Donna! Jimmy Akin, Dom Bettinelli, and Fr. Cory Sticha discuss the highlights of the return of the Doctor and Donna, the live action debut of the Meep (and its history), and the problematic additions to the show and what it may mean for the future.
Liberation of the Daleks and Destination: Skaro - It's the 14th Doctor like you've never seen him. Jimmy Akin, Dom Bettinelli, and Fr. Cory Sticha discuss the first 14th Doctor story, a series of comics released over the past year, as well as the 2nd 14th Doctor story that brings him to the genesis of the Daleks in an amusing way.
The Five Doctors - Five Doctors! Jimmy Akin and Dom Bettinelli discuss this story that brings together, well, four of the Doctors (plus a brief cameo) to celebrate the show's 20th anniversary along with a passel of Companions who get shuffled among their not usual partners as well as the Master.
Heaven Sent - This 12th Doctor story gets mixed reviews from Jimmy Akin, Dom Bettinelli, and Fr. Cory Sticha. Trapped in an atmospheric, moody castle, pursued by the Veil, the Doctor must make a confession of the truth. An unfortunately implausible wall is one major barrier for this episode though.
The Talons of Weng-Chiang - The game is afoot! Jimmy Akin, Dom Bettinelli, and Fr. Cory Sticha discuss this fan-favorite 4th Doctor story set in Victorian London that features the popular Jago and Litefoot, the Doctor going full Sherlock Holmes, and the mysteries of ancient Chinese myths.
