Okay, a few bumps in the road later, here is the official Traveling The Vortex schedule for Series 9 (well, most of it)
I played a hunch and it paid off, with the return of Davros in the first episode of the series, it seems only fitting to revisit his last appearance in Doctor Who, so Friday Night Who on 9/25 is the David Tennant two-parter, “Stolen Earth” / “Journey’s End”.
Our show this week is a full one! TTV #248 will have new from our appearance at Slash And Bash, reviews of the (finally released) Titan Comics: The Four Doctors #5, thanks to Candy Jar Books we’ll bring you a spoiler free review of just released Lethbridge Stewart: The Schizoid Earth by David A. McIntee, and then a very spoiler filled review of Series 9, episode 2 “The Witch’s Familiar”.
The next weekend finds us celebrating in Wichita for Time Eddy, and since both Frazer Hines and Deborah Watling will be on hand, what better Friday Night Who could there be on 10/2 than “Tomb Of The Cybermen”?
TTV #249 will be all about Time Eddy, and our discussing of this week’s new story, “Under The Lake”.
FNW 10/9 is “Warriors Of The Deep” with Peter Davison. (Which probably would have fit better with last week’s story, but we wanted a refresher on some of Deborah’s material.)
TTV #250 Wait… an epiversary?!? In the middle of Series 9?!? ARGH! Well, in addition to our discussion of “Before The Flood” we’ll find some other fun things to discuss too.
Like New Who? Good. Cause David Tennant returns to FNW on 10/16 in “The Fires Of Pompeii”…
…because the new series synopsis hints that in “The Girl Who Died” the Doctor will remember where he’s seen his face. We’ll discuss in TTV #251.
Friday Night Who on 10/23 is Tom Baker in “The Face Of Evil”.
Which hopefully pairs up well with our topic for TTV #252, “The Woman Who Lived”.
FNW 10/30 – “Day Of The Doctor” (yes, again!) should nicely set up
TTV #253 – “The Zygon Invasion”.
And what’s a Zygon invasion without their first appearance? Join us on 11/6 for “Terror Of The Zygons” for Friday Night Who just before
TTV #254 – “The Zygon Inversion”.
Here’s where it gets tricky. FNW 11/13 is “Love & Monsters” to tie in to the unique filming nature of a Doctor light episode…
Which should compliment our topic in Traveling The Vortex episode #255, “Sleep No More”.
FNW 11/20 is another new series affair, last season’s “Flatline”.
Because Rigsy makes a return appearance in “Face The Raven”, the topic of TTV #256.
Beyond that? Well, I’m still hedging my bets on the finale. I have a few ideas, but I’d hate to spoil anyone. We’ll keep you posted!
