After the last minute shift last week because of the passing of John Hurt, this week we adjust our schedule to do the episodes we planned last week for Friday Night Who: The Zygon Invasion & The Zygon Inversion!Join @TravelVortex, @VortexShaun, @VortexGlenn & @VortexKeith as we press play at Midnight CST on Friday!
As we are receiving the sad news that Sir John Hurt has passed away, we are rearranging our Friday Night Who schedule to honor the actor we fondly remember as the War Doctor.
So, tonight, instead of our regularly planned episodes, we will be viewing the 50th Anniversary special, The Day of the Doctor.
We press play at Midnight CST tonight.
We return to the modern (very modern) era for Friday Night Who this week with The Zygon Invasion & The Zygon Inversion!Join @TravelVortex, @VortexShaun, @VortexGlenn & @VortexKeith as we press play at Midnight CST on Friday!
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 🙂

We end the new year on a cliff hanger, we’re only doing half of “The Time Monster” this week for Friday Night Who!
Friday Night Who this weeks combines the 4th Doctor and Cybermen…what could be more awesome with “Revenge of the Cybermen”?!
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.

FNW 12/9 is Web Of Fear Parts 4-6
TTV #308 covers Power Of The Daleks #4, and a Book Review, Lethbridge-Stewart: Times Squared by Rick Cross
Tom Baker returns to FNW on 12/16 for Revenge Of The Cybermen
Which allows us to take a look at both the 4th Doctor Mini-Series, AND Supremacy Of The Cybermen Mini-Series from Titan Comics, as well as Power Of The Daleks episode #5 in TTV #309.
Our holiday edition of FNW 12/23 is last year’s The Husbands Of River Song
and coming fresh of the airing, TTV #310 will have our thoughts on Power Of The Daleks #6, and the 2016 Christmas special The Return Of Doctor Mysterio
FNW 12/30 is Jon Pertwee in The Time Monster Parts 1-3
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…
Hopefully you aren’t too tired from all that Black Friday shopping…because Friday Night Who tonight is “The Doctor’s Daughter!”
