In this week’s show we look at the return of Doctor Who on our television screens with the 2016 Christmas Special – The Return of Doctor Mysterio. Find out what we thought of this long-awaited episode.
Plus, we look at some of the news from the past week.
In this week’s episode we look at two mini-series from Titan Comics. First, the Fourth Doctor and Sarah Jane come face to face with Medusa in the Five issue story, Gaze of the Medusa. Hear what we thought of the story that takes our heroes back to ancient Greece to do battle with the popular Gorgon and meet the Gods of Old.
Then, we review this years multi-Doctor event from Titan, Supremacy of the Cybermen. We give our impressions on the return of two old foes in an epic event that finds the Universe at threat by the silver menaces.
Plus, lot’s of news to talk about this week.
And, we have a SPOILER-FREE review of the latest Star Wars film, Rouge One.
In this week’s podcast we look at the recently released episodes 3 and 4 of The Power of the Daleks. We catch up on the series so far and give our impressions of the story to this point.
Also, another book in Candy Jar Books’ ongoing Lethbridge-Stewart series, this time Times Squared written by Rick Cross. We look at the return of the Great Intelligence and the Yeti, in the first novel of Candy Jar’s third series of Lethbridge-Stewart novels.
Then, we follow that up with a review of the Lethbridge-Stewart short story, Eve of the Fomorians by Robert Mammone, which takes place after Times Squared.
Plus, some news from the week, including discussion of the latest Doctor Who trailer for this year’s Christmas Special.
Oh, before we go, be sure to take advantage of the special promotion that Candy Jar has going on here.
Off topic this week we talk Christmas decorating, lights and holiday movie favorites.
On topic, we discuss some short stories in the Lethbridge-Stewart line of books from Candy Jar Books’ ongoing series. This time it’s The Creatures in the Cave by Rick Cross, The Last Duty by Christopher Bryant and The Lost Skin: Episode 1 by Andy Frankham-Allen. Hear what we thought of these three different tales.
Shaun and Glenn take some time to review the Goodreads Traveling the Vortex Book Club selection for October, Doctor Who: Prisoner of the Daleks (Doctor Who: New Series Adventures #33) by Trevor Baxendale.
This is the way we will continue to feature the book club titles, so as not to spoiler listeners who have not had a chance to read the novels.
In this week’s podcast we examine two stories. First we look at episodes 1 and 2 of the newly released The Power of the Daleks (animated). We give our impressions of the story and what we think of the treatment so far.
And then, on to Big Finish The 4th Doctor Adventures S2: #4 The Justice Of Jalxar, We pick up where we left off in the adventures featuring the Fourth Doctor and Romana. Hear what we thought of this one.
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 12/2 is Web Of Fear Parts 1-3
For Traveling The Vortex #307 we’ll discuss Power Of The Daleks episode #3, and bring you some Book Reviews with the Candy Jar shorts The Creatures in the Cave by Rick Cross, The Last Duty by Christopher Bryant, Eve of the Fomorians by Robert Mammome, and The Lost Skin: Episode 1 by Andy Frankham-Allen
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

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

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…
Illness has delayed us again, so please forgive our tardiness again this week. However, we have returned and this week we explore the Fourth Doctor and Roman II story, Meglos. Find out what we have to say about this one.
Plus, more Power of the Daleks news, which brings some schedule foul ups for us, once again.
