Recent Episodes

Fury From the Deep - Victoria's final journey! Jimmy Akin and Dom Bettinelli discuss this 2nd Doctor story that exists only in animation now and features a tense base-under-siege story of sentient seaweed attacking gas drilling rigs.
Kill the Moon - Return to the Moon Egg! Jimmy Akin, Dom Bettinelli, and Fr. Cory Sticha revisit this 12th Doctor story that presents a more implausible and less scientific than usual plot contrivance to create dramatic tension between the Doctor and Clara.

The Invasion of Time - Fourth Doctor Lord President. Jimmy Akin, Dom Bettinelli, and Fr. Cory Sticha discuss this story that sees the 4th Doctor become Time Lord President only to seemingly turn traitor, plus we get to see a lot more of the Tardis interior.
Seasons of Fear - Time loops within time loops. Jimmy Akin and Fr. Cory Sticha discuss this 8th Doctor Big Finish story, including a character who says he kills the Doctor in his future; the Roman cult of Mithras; and loose threads connecting to later stories.
