We pick up where we left off last week on Genesis the Daleks!
In this week’s show we continue our look at the work that the actors who play the Doctor have done, outside the franchise. This time, we examine Tom Baker starring in the BBC’s Sherlock Holmes – The Hound of the Baskervilles. We give our impression of Baker in another iconic role.
Also, some of the headlines making news this week in the world of Doctor Who.
Plus, Shaun is fresh back from Starfest in Denver this past weekend. He’ll give us a recap of the convention.
And. of course, your feedback.
For the first time in nearly 4 years one of what’s considered the best stories in the show’s history returns to Friday Night Who.
That’s right! We’re watching parts 1-3 of Genesis of the Daleks!
In this week’s podcast, we visit Big Finish’s Eight Doctor audio line to review two stories. First up is the Eighth Doctor and Lucy in Horror of Glam Rock. Then the duo take another turn, this time amongst the gods (or so we think) in Immortal Beloved.
Also, a look at some more convention announcements in our news of the week.
And of course, your feedback.
Grab those Season 8 DVDs! Peter Capaldi’s first proper story “Deep Breath” makes it’s Friday Night Who Debut!
In this week’s podcast, we approach another Adversary Archive, this time revisiting The Master. We review two stories featuring one of the Doctor’s ultimate foe. First a look at the Third Doctor story, The Mind of Evil. Next we tackle a Big Finish, Seventh Doctor audio, The Master.
Also, a lot on the plate for our reactions to the news of the week, with some new series announcements, including some potentially good news for the future of the show, and a new delivery service for some of our favorite episodes.
And of course, your feedback.
While gearing up for the BIGGEST MOVIE OF THE SUMMER, (AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON for the uninitiated amongst you), we decided we should probably do some Doctor Who related stuff as well. And so without further ado and no fanfare whatsoever…
Hope you all bought your season eight box sets, because Friday Night Who on 4/10 is the first of Peter Capaldi’s stories, “Deep Breath”.
As we’ve already reviewed “Deep Breath” that frees up show #224 to cover the next two Big Finish 8th Doctor Adventures audios, #3 “Horror Of Glam Rock”, and #4 “Immortal Beloved”.
FNW on 4/17 is the first three parts of the Tom Baker classic “Genesis Of The Daleks”.
TTV #225 is our next “Beyond The Doctor” this time featuring Tom Baker as Sherlock Holmes in The Hound Of The Baskervilles (1982). This one also appears to be widely available on the youtubes, (and before everyone goes nuts and says, “WHAT? WHY aren’t you dong TALONS as the pair up if you’re gonna review Tom Baker playing SHERLOCK!?!?” Our reply is… blame Glenn. No seriously. Blame Glenn. Theres no joke here.)
We’ll finish “Genesis Of The Daleks” with parts 4-6 on Friday Night Who on 4/24.
An interesting topic for TTV #226 (at least we think so,) Are the Daleks better off without Davros?
FNW 5/1 is “The Mysterious Planet” with Colin Baker.
The flip side of the coin in TTV #227 – Is Davros better off without the Daleks? We’ll tie this question in with Big Finish audio #48 “Davros”.
Friday Night Who on 5/8 is the animated “The Infinite Quest”.
And keeping with the drawn theme… Traveling The Vortex episode #228 is an update of the tenth and eleventh Doctor Titan Comics Doctor Who lines, with issues #6-12 (and an update of however far along they are with the 9th Doctor series)
And after that? Who knows? Who KNOWS!
(And no, it’s not all Glenn’s fault about Talons. Like the Cylons, we have a plan.)
Time to finish what we started last week! Find out what happens in the rest of “The Mind of Evil” for this week’s Friday Night Who!
In this week’s show we step away from Doctor Who for a brief moment once again to review material featuring one of our favorite actors who’ve portrayed other characters other than the Doctor. This time its Jon Pertwee’s performance in the other role he made famous, Worzel Gummidge. We’ll give our impressions on his performance in episodes we chose at random.
Also, a look at the news of the week, including some more exciting announcements from Big Finish.
And, of course, your feedback.
It’s March and that means it’s time to celebrate the 3rd Doctor, this time by watching one we haven’t seen before… “The Mind of Evil”
