    Kill the Moon

    WHO293: 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. Our commentary may be more entertaining the episode itself.

Dr Who review with a moral compass

Great podcast! Love the review of not only "New" Dr. Who, but classic Dr. Who as well as audio plays. Keep up the good work.

Cold War

I come to this pod cast to get information and backstory of my favorite show but it’s becoming increasingly difficult to listen to because you guys come off as homophobic and religious zealots. Being “woke” and social justice issues obviously annoy you and I sense some misogyny as well. Know your audience. If I’m wrong by all means carry on but I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one that hears this. And I get that you are Christians but to talk about religion as fact and not a personal belief that you hold is presumptuous.
