Jimmy Akin, Dom Bettinelli, and Fr. Cory Sticha continue their re-watch of the Ninth Doctor’s season with the two-parter, Aliens of London and World War 3, featuring the Slitheen. What did they think? Well, they did find a couple of bright spots. Plus stay to the very end of the episode for something fun.
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.
