The Invisible Enemy - The 4th Doctor takes an incredible journey into his brain to fight the Swarm. Jimmy Akin, Dom Bettinelli, and Fr. Cory Sticha talk about how the episode plays off other "shrink and travel into the body" stories as well as the introduction of a beloved canine companion.
The Unicorn and the Wasp - The Doctor and Donna encounter Agatha Christie and, of course, a murder-mystery ensues. Jimmy Akin, Dom Bettinelli, and Fr.

Dragonfire - The 7th Doctor drops a Companion and picks up a new one in his adventures on Iceworld that involve a freezing criminal, a pirate named Glitz, and a "dragon" that looks like it should be fighting Sigourney Weaver. Jimmy, Dom, and Fr. Cory talk about the departure of Mel and arrival of Ace in the midst of this adventure.

The Mark of the Rani - The 6th Doctor shows up at the start of the Industrial Revolution in 19th century England where the Master and a new foe, the Rani, have joined forces.
