Jason and Rita are back with another fun filled installment of Transmissions From Atlantis. First – we discuss if we sue BBC for developing a show called Atlantis with a main character named Jason? We talk some of our favorite new shows in Sci-Fi and a new video game for Stargate. We review Battlestar Galactica Blood & Chrome as well as the latest episode The Walking Dead.
Jason gives you a huge announcement and in Transmissions Received we talk to artist extraordinaire Ray Dillon. In our Doctor Who segment, we have huge 50th anniversary rumors plus we chat about Jon Pertwee.

At the time I wrote this my TV-on-DVD undertaking was watching every single episode of Doctor Who featuring Jon Pertwee as The Doctor (1970-1974). My Doctor will always be Tom Baker, but I am found that Jon Pertwee was a singular and special Doctor that I could appreciate on a wholly different level from any other Doctor, much like Roger Moore’s James Bond. Doctor Three knows Venusian Kung-Fu and he utilizes it all the time. Unlike the other ten pacifistic incarnations of the Doctor, Pertwee’s Time Lord is more than willing to beat an alien down if he needs to. And sometimes when he doesn’t need to. I’ve seen him chop dudes unconscious – risking concussion and even death – when he could have easily avoided them entirely by just walking more quietly or ducking behind a tapestry.
