Shannon embarks on a difficult review of 2020. A year of monumental challenges personally and professionally for both hosts. He remembers CBC TV sports anchor (and Steve’s father) Carl Lake, Jeremy Bulloch of Star Wars Boba Fett fame, and Newfoundland local comic shop owner and passionate fan of all things good and geek, Jason Conway. All passed in this year, and all had an impact on this podcast and the host’s lives in many ways, small and large. While some topics pertaining to Doctor Who (such as Christopher Eccleston’s recent bizarre response to returning to the role on TV while promoting a return in audio form!), are covered, this podcast primarily is meant to be a tribute and outpouring of love and support to the families and friends who lost their loved ones. Stay safe during Covid, please. Thank you for your support, and we will return when you least expect it. Wishing all positive mental health and a much better 2021.
