As mentioned in Episode 312 – Stonefinger both Chrissy and Holly got some Doctor Who goodies for Christmas and sent us pictures with their feedback.
Holly said “I got The Dot to Doc extreme Dot to Dot book, why I’m calling it extreme is that some of the pages have up to a 1000+ dots to connect. Then there are ones that are in the 300-900 range. I also received a Doctor Who travel mug with a disappearing/reappearing TARDIS. My last Doctor Who item was the Doctor Who Master of Time pinball table from the pinball arcade app.”
Chrissy said “Doctor Who goodies were a bit thin on the ground this Christmas for me. I did get the Twelfth Doctor’s sonic screwdriver (the new one that debuted at the end of Series 9), which will go great with my Twelfth Doctor cosplay. Jared and I also got matching t-shirts from my sister and brother-in-law that both say “I Believe in Love at First Episode” and the “O” in “Love” is a TARDIS. It’s cute because our first date was watching episodes of Doctor Who after ordering pizza. The rest, as they say, is history. We also got the Funko Pop TARDIS and a Funko War Doctor (picture attached, so you can see how the Doctor fits inside the TARDIS – it’s quite cute). Speaking of Funko Pops – Glenn, Shaun is absolutely right. Once you start collecting Funkos, you can’t stop. I bought my first Funko (which was Queen Elsa) and I vowed that was the only one I was ever going to get. A couple of years later, there are a grand total of 59 Funkos in my house. Granted, a lot of those are ones Jared had collected before we started dating and it’s due to his influence that I’ve kept collecting them and there are two of us doing the collecting… but still. It’s an addiction. I’ve attached pictures of our entire collection (well, the ones that we have in the apartment. Jared has a few on his desk at work). So, just be careful around those cute little guys and gals – they’ll hook ya 🙂

1/20/17 – There have been a few tweaks based on the Titan comics release schedule, and a change to the Power Of The Daleks show, which we are NOT treating as a Lost In Time Segment. Updated entries to the schedule are in RED.
It’s time for a whole new batch of what’s coming up in the Vortex…
Friday Night Who on 1/13 is the Sylvester McCoy vehicle “Dragonfire”.
TTV #313 will take a look at Titan Comics 12th Doctor comics, series 2, #2.1 – #2.5, as well as Big Finish mainline audio #74 “LIVE 34”.

TTV #316 is a Book Review of Lethbridge-Stewart: Mind Of Stone by Iain McLaughlan, and The Christmas Files shorts.
FNW 2/10 (Finally) is “The Power of the Daleks” Part 1-3, as the Patrick Troughton story comes to DVD in North America at last.

A pair of audios round things out for show #320, with Big Finish mainline story #91 Circular Time and #93 Renaissance Of The Daleks.
After that? Season 10 starts soon. (And keep in mind that it may start sooner than this schedule allows for, so things are always subject to change…) Thanks again for your support!
So once again we have been foiled by an uncertain time frame. In our desire to get Power Of The Daleks on the schedule (and Friday Night Who) as close to air date as possible, we have been stymied by BBC America and BBC Worldwide’s decision to release the six part serial WEEKLY. Which threw a major monkey-wrench into our plans. So, with much apology, I present a REVISED schedule for those of you that like following along…
Friday Night Who TONIGHT 11/25 will star David Tennant in The Doctor’s Daughter
TTV #306 will have our reviews of Big Finish The 4th Doctor Adventures S2: #4 The Justice Of Jalxar, AND the first two episodes of The Power Of The Daleks.

TTV #311 will be A Very Vortex Christmas Special. Not sure what we’re looking at yet, but Glenn is digging up some goodies!
Leading off the shiny new year is a bit of left over business from last, as we finish The Time Monster Part 4-6 for Friday Night Who on 1/6
Beyond that I’ll keep things a little closer to the vest to make sure they pan out as anticipated. But be ready for more comics, big finish and Zygons as we run up to Season 10…
Hey gang, as we discussed on the podcast this week, there has been a slight shift in the programming, since Power of the Daleks wont actually release in time for Friday Night Who, this week we’ve shuffled some things around. The updated (and expanded! NOW THROUGH 2017) schedule follows, for those of you who like to follow things.
