Dom Bettinelli, Jimmy Akin, and Fr. Cory Sticha discuss the regeneration episodes of the third Doctor, the Planet of the Spiders, in which John Pertwee’s Doctor visits a Buddhist monastery, has a chase in every kind of vehicle imaginable, and uses some Venusian aikido to defeat his enemies before facing the Great One.
Jimmy Akin, Dom Bettinelli and Fr. Cory Sticha are rewatching the 9th Doctor and this time look at “The Unquiet Dead,” a Victorian ghost story featuring Charles Dickens and written by fan favorite Mark Gatiss.
Sometimes there is a difference between what you are good at and what you are called to do. Being successful in what you do can become a glass ceiling that prevents you from further growth in life. My thoughts in this episode were triggered by a video in which Cliff Ravenscraft talks about the impact of the book The Big Leap on him. Take a listen!
In this episode: Six Million Dollar Man dies; New NASA Cassini video; Star Trek’s impossibly tiny planet; recommending the Canon 900F Mark II scanner; Biggest Millenium Falcon set ever released on Force Friday; Disney’s Star Wars hotel and facial recognition technology.
Dom, Jimmy, and Fr. Cory continue their review of the regeneration stories of all the Doctors as we lead up to the 12th Doctor’s regeneration at Christmas. This time, our panel is watching “The War Games”, the 2nd Doctor’s regeneration story, as Patrick Troughton’s Doctor is put on trial by his own people, the Time Lords, and given a harsh sentence.
Continuing our re-watch of new Doctor Who, Dom Bettinelli, Jimmy Akin, and Fr. Cory Sticha analyze the themes and story of “The End of the World”, the 9th Doctor’s second episode with Rose Tyler as they take their first trip through time to the last hours of the Earth’s existence.
As we approach the 2017 Christmas special and the regeneration of the 12th Doctor, Jimmy Akin, Dom Bettinelli, and Fr. Cory Sticha are going back to look at all the previous regeneration episodes, starting with the very first. This time, they watch and discuss “The Tenth Planet”, in which the First Doctor undergoes regeneration, but also whose events will play into the upcoming Christmas special.
