046: Let zygones be bygones. A Doctor Who 50th anniversary special
In this week’s extra length special episode of Unfinished Business, Jon Hicks and I talk exclusively about Doctor Who, so there isn’t a single piece of business advice anywhere in the show — not that there’s usually much.
In particular we talk about the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary episode, so if you haven’t seen that yet — spoilers! Before that we talk about ‘An Adventure In Space And Time’, the story of the First Doctor William Hartnell and ‘The Night Of The Doctor’ mini episode that set the scene for the 50th Anniversary last week.

Monash University Leadership Series
Alan Joyce, the CEO of Qantas, polarised the nation in October 2011 when he grounded all Qantas aircraft in his brawl with pilots, ground staff and engineers over pay, conditions and outsourcing jobs overseas.
He was either lauded for his courage or reviled for trying to crush the unions, and in the process, destroy a national icon.
In this conversation with John Bertrand, Joyce talks about working under pressure, facing down the unions, pacifying the public; fessing up to his mistakes and choosing his team.
Joyce is smart, charming and very canny; but hes not asked any of the tougher economic questions about how he plans to shore up the airline as the Qantas share price heads south.
This conversation is part of the Monash University Leadership Series.
