As promised, heres a look at the finalized schedule going into the new year!

Our last Friday Night Who tweet along for 2014 is on 12/26, the Christmas Story “The Next Doctor” with David Tennant.

And our last show review for the year will be all about the newest Christmas Special, “Last Christmas” with Peter Capaldi.

HAPPY 2015!

We’re a little late to celebrate the year of the snake, but then again, time has always been a little Wibbly Wobbly round here. So our first Friday Night Who of the new year on 1/2 is the fifth Doctor story, “Kinda”.

We review a pair of fifth Doctor audio stories in TTV #210, Big Finish #44 “Creatures Of Beauty”, and #66 “The Game”.

Then on 1/9 we present the second Mara story for FNW, “Snakedance”.

TTV #211 is an Adversary Archive on The Mara, and we’ll tackle both stories “Kinda” and “Snakedance”.

FNW 1/16 is Matt Smith in “Victory Of The Daleks”

And a quick turnaround for more Paul McGann audio in TTV #212, as we listen and start the Big Finish 8th Doctor Adventures #1, “Blood Of The Daleks” and #2 “Blood Of The Daleks Part 2″.

FNW 1/23 is one we’ve been trying to get to for a while, William Hartnell in “The Sensorites” Part 1-3.

Here we change it up a bit. Remember two years ago when we did a specific Doctor breakdown for our the run up to the 50th anniversary? And last year we did the E-Books each month to continue that celebration? Well we’re doing it again this year, with a twist! TTV #213 is something we’re calling Beyond The Doctor: William Hartnell. Instead of reviewing an episode, we’ll be discussing his role in the motion picture Carry On Sergeant! We hope to do a different staring roll for each Doctor each month all year long!

We’ll finish “The Sensorites” Part 4-6 on 1/30 for Friday Night Who.

and then TTV #214 has our reviews of “The Sensorites” as well as Big Finish #85 “Red”.

After that? Well it’s the start of Con season for us, with Gallifrey One and Kansas City Planet Comicion looming on the horizon, but we’ll have something hammered out for you all by then! As always thanks for listening and following along, and we’ll see you in the vortex…

We pick up where we left off last week with parts 4-6 of “Frontier in Space”

TTV-Logo-1400-150x150In this week’s podcast, we’ve reached the end of the run of Charlotte Pollard, well.. in the Eighth Doctors run in the Big Finish Main Range, anyway. And so we bid a fond farewell to her in he present state with a review of the audio play The Girl Who Never Was. We’ll give our impressions of this bang-up job of a story (did I tip our hand there?).

Also, we continue out review of the Titan Comics Doctor Who titles, exploring some more of the Tenth and Eleventh Doctor series.

Plus, nome news of the week, including a very special con announcement of a guest coming very near to us.

And, of course, your feedback.

TTV-Logo-1400-150x150It’s time for Fun and Games Part 2!

Then we go over the Dalek themed board game, Risk. Find out what we thought of a new spin on these classics.

BUT, before all of that, we also get to our reviews of the Big Finish Seventh Doctor and Mel audio play, Flip-Flop.

And then, more fun in the works with a review of the first issue of the Titan Twelfth Doctor comic book series.

Also, we have some news to give our reactions to.

TTV-Logo-1400-150x150In this week’s podcast there is a slight change to what was scheduled. First, we do offer up our reviews on the Season 24 Seventh Doctor and Mel story, Paradise Towers. Also, as promised, we dig a little deeper into the background of the Quarks as presented in other media, particularly the TV Comics runs, for a mini Adversary Archive on the Quarks. However, due to some unforeseen circumstances, including but not limited to time constraints, we have pushed off our review of Big Finish’s Seventh Doctor and Mel audio, Flip-Flop.

Also, in news, we reveal some more convention guests, as well as talk about some comments made by Eighth Doctor actor Peter Capaldi.

And, of course, your feedback.

Enjoy!
