Dinosaurs on a Spaceship - What if the lone joke of an obscure Samuel L. Jackson movie were morphed into a Doctor Who episode? Jimmy Akin, Dom Bettinelli, and Fr. Cory Sticha discuss everything that's wrong with this story, including the Doctor's murder of the villain. Snakedance - The return of the Mara. Jimmy, Dom, and Fr. Cory discuss this 5th Doctor story that was partially inspired by tales of Christian snake handlers, but also uses concepts out of Asian religions and philosophies. Asylum of the Daleks - The Doctor, Amy, and Rory are on a mission from the Daleks to stop even worse Daleks. Jimmy Akin, Dom Bettinelli, and Fr. Cory Sticha discuss the turn in the relationship between Amy and Rory and the first appearance of the "Impossible Girl". The Brain of Morbius - The 4th Doctor fights a mad scientist and his horrific creation. Jimmy, Dom, and Fr. Cory discuss the classic story and its implication that the Doctor had many more than the traditional 13 (or 14) incarnations, and how that relates to the Timeless Child. The Doctor, The Widow, and The Wardrobe - The Doctor riffs on Narnia, but misses just a bit. Jimmy, Dom, and Fr. Cory discuss this Christmas special in which pretty much nothing the Doctor does makes any difference to the main action of the plot, but at least there's sentient trees and a happy reunion.
