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”
In the most recent episode Kirk sent in some audio feedback about his experience at Planet Comicon and how they got both Karen Gillan and Caitlin Blackwood to sign his son’s fez.
Here’s a picture of said fez.
In this weeks show, we look back at the 16 year gap in Doctor Who on television, commonly referred to as the Wildness Years. We discuss some of the media that kept Doctor Who on the hearts and minds of fans through the dark times leading up to the show’s return to the airwaves in 2005.
We also share a retrospective on the return of the series to television and discuss some of the influences on the show even today, A celebration of the 10 years the News Series has been going strong.
But first, a look at some of the news of the week, including some guest announcements out of L.I. Who happening this year in New York.
And, of course, your feedback.
We’re celebrating the 10th anniversary of the show’s return to our screen this week. And what better way to celebrate it, than to watch the episode that launched the return?!
We are fresh back from all of the weekend excitement of Planet Comicon in Kansas City, Missouri. Hear a recap of our experience at this wonderful convention on this week’s show.
Also, we had a chance to host a panel at the convention featuring Caitlin Blackwood, the actress who played young Amelia Pond on Doctor Who. And if you listen closely, you might recognize a surprise guest to the panel as well.
With us out of the loop this week, we have no news to report and react to, but be assured, we will be playing catch-up for next week.
And, of course…er.. well… there was no feedback either, so, never mind.
Also, recording schedules are difficult this week and we are trying to work through that challenge as well. The plan is to record sometime tomorrow (Tuesday) morning and then if all of the stars align, and we get some missing pieces to us on time, and release the show onto the feed mid to late week.
So, your patience is appreciated! I promise, you will not be sorry for having to wait.
Since Karen Gillian & Caitlin Blackwood will be in Kansas City this weekend for Planet Comicon we figured we should watch an Amy story.
So this week we’re watching “The Eleventh Hour”
First, we revisit the Second Doctor television story The Ice Warriors. Now, we know that we’ve already reviewed this one a while back, but this time we examine it for the first time with the linking animated segments.
Then, it’s the Fifth Doctor and Peri in the Big Finish audio drama, Red Dawn.
Also, more sad news this week with the loss of another Doctor Who alum. Plus, more details on what would have been Jenna Coleman’s departure from the show.
And, of course, your feedback.
An update for the schedule for you guys!
The biggest local event of the year kicks off on Friday this week, and to celebrate Karen Gillan and Caitlin Blackwood coming to our neck of the woods our special Planet Comicon Friday Night Who on 3/13 is “The Eleventh Hour” (This marks an update from the previously scheduled “Sound Of Drums / Last Of The Time Lords” since John Barrowman had to cancel his appearance.)
We’ll bring you all the news and recaps of this year’s Planet Comicon in TTV episode #220.
To celebrate it’s “10th Anniversary” since airing, (though a couple of days early) our FNW offering on 3/20 is “Rose”.
TTV #221 takes a detailed look at New Who: 10 Years Out Of The Wilderness. We’ll be discussing various wilderness years Who connections.
FNW on 3/27 will be the first three parts of the Jon Pertwee story “The Mind Of Evil”.
And just sneaking in at the end of the month in TTV #222 is our 3rd Beyond The Doctor: Jon Pertwee. We’ll be reviewing his appearances in Worzel Gummidge, which appear to be wildly available on the youtubes.
FNW 4/3 we finish “The Mind Of Evil” Parts 4-6.
Its the return of everyone’s favorite villain in TTV #223 – Adversary Archive, The Master II, with looks at “The Mind Of Evil”, and Big Finish #49 “Master”.
Hope you got your season 8 DVDs, cause FNW on 4/10 is Capaldi’s intro, “Deep Breath”.
Which frees TTV #224 to return to Paul McGann in Big Finish 8th Doctor Adventures #3 “Horror Of Glam Rock”, and #4 “Immortal Beloved”.
Beyond that? More Daleks than you can shake a stick at! (and really, it wouldn’t do you much good, they’d just exterminate the stick) and Tom Baker’s Beyond the Doctor segment. There’s a hint if you add 2 plus 2…
We pick up where we left off last week with the rest of “The Ice Warriors”
