Schedule X Redux

We have some changes to the recently posted Tenth Doctor celebration month additions and or changes will be in bold.

FNW 11/1 is the recently released “Terror Of The Zygons” staring Tom Baker for countdown spot No. 4.

And then TTV #149 will have our review of “Terror Of The Zygons”.

We reach number three on the countdown for Friday Night Who on 11/8 with Jon Pertwee in “The Daemons”.

We’ll cover “The Daemons” in episode #150… and IDW Comic’s “Prisoners Of Time 10″ and holly cow, that’s a nice even number, so it’s time for another EPIVERSARY!

I know you’re all excited to hear our thoughts on the just recovered Troughton episodes, but it’ll have to wait just a bit longer. (Trust us, the suspense is killing us as well.) 11/15 Friday Night Who is “The Dominators”.

TTV #151 has us return to the 10th Doctor celebrations as we look at Doctor Who Revisited 10, and have our 50th Anniversary Discussion over the 10th Doctor Era.

Coming in at number one on the countdown (chronologically speaking), Friday Night Who on 11/22 takes us back to where it all began with “An Unearthly Child”.

And then the big one, #SaveTheDay for TTV #152 and our look at “The Day Of The Doctor (50th Anniversary Special)”

Assuming we are have not won the lottery and are not at Chicago Tardis this year, FNW on 11/29 will continue the multi-Doctor anniversary celebrations with “The Five Doctors” 

We can’t contain all the anniversary celebrations in one episode so TTV #153 will be our thoughts on Big Finish’s Epic Story “The Light at the End”

We start December with the just released “The Tenth Planet” for FNW on 12/06.

And an announcement to cheer up Keith over the impending loss of Matt Smith, TTV #154 will be our Cybermen Archive IV! Covering “The Tenth Planet”, and at long last, Big Finish #34 “Spare Parts”.

That takes us slightly into December when we’ll begin our celebrations (or mourning) of the Eleventh Doctor era.  Stay tuned, true believer!

Schedule X

No, that’s not an X, but a Roman Numeral 10, as our schedule gets into the Tenth Doctor celebration month.

This wee’s show (TTV #147) is the wrap up of number 9, as we discuss Doctor Who Revisited 9 and have our 50th Anniversary Discussion of the the 9th Doctor Era. (Still time to vote in the poll!)

Friday Night Who on 10/25 showcases the return of our mascot, the Myrka in “Warriors Of The Deep” with Doctor No. 5, Peter Davison.

We’ll actually start our 10th Doctor celebrations a week early in TTV #148, as we’ll have Glenn (and if all goes well all three of us) reviewing the 10th Doctor book Forever Autumn by Mark Morris, and the Audio Go, Big Finish “Destiny Of The Doctor: Death’s Deal”

FNW 11/1 is the recently released “Terror Of The Zygons” staring Tom Baker for countdown spot No. 4.

And then TTV #149 will have our reviews of “Terror Of The Zygons” and IDW Comic’s “Prisoners Of Time 10”.

We reach number three on the countdown for Friday Night Who on 11/8 with Jon Pertwee in “The Daemons”.

We’ll cover “The Daemons” in episode #150… and holly cow, that’s a nice even number, so it’s time for another EPIVERSARY!

I know you’re all excited to hear our thoughts on the just recovered Troughton episodes, but it’ll have to wait just a bit longer. (Trust us, the suspense is killing us as well.) 11/15 Friday Night Who is “The Dominators”.

TTV #151 has us return to the 10th Doctor celebrations as we look at Doctor Who Revisited 10, and have our 50th Anniversary Discussion over the 10th Doctor Era.

Coming in at number one on the countdown (chronologically speaking), Friday Night Who on 11/22 takes us back to where it all began with “An Unearthly Child”.

And then the big one, #SaveTheDay for TTV #152 and our look at “The Day Of The Doctor (50th Anniversary Special)”

Assuming we are have not won the lottery and are not at Chicago Tardis this year, FNW on 11/29 will be the just released “The Tenth Planet”

And an announcement to cheer up Keith over the impending loss of Matt Smith, TTV #153 will be our Cybermen Archive IV! Covering “The Tenth Planet”, and at long last, Big Finish #34 “Spare Parts”.

That takes us right up to December when we’ll begin our celebrations (or morning) of the Eleventh Doctor era.  Stay tuned, true believer!

Episode 41 – 76 Totter’s Lane

Following the end of Series Six last week, it’s back to the beginning this week to the story that launched one of television’s greatest sci-fi series.

And we’ll talk about the news of the week, including some announced DVD releases in the U.S. and of course your feedback.

The Key To Scheduling

* Spoilers below if you dont want to see episode titles from the new series!

Home work assignments for those of you following along, the next several weeks will find us deeply entrenched in Tom Baker and Matt Smith, as the continuation of Series Six starts this week with six new episodes, and our Friday Night Who’s will be the six segments of the Key To Time.  The show’s review schedule shakes down like this:

On 8/26 Friday Night Who kicks off with the first story of The Key To Time with “The Ribos Operation”.

Traveling The Vortex #35 will see us reviewing “The Ribos Operation” and S6x08,  “Let’s Kill Hitler”.

Friday Night Who 9/2 is “The Pirate Planet”

Episode #36 covers “The Pirate Planet” and “Night Terrors” (S6x09).

Then on 9/9, one of my favorite episodes, “The Stones Of Blood”.

TTV #37 will be our reviews of “The Stones Of Blood” and S6x10, “The Girl Who Waited”

The week of 9/16 Friday Night Who is “The Androids Of Tara”

And then we’ll review “The Androids Of Tara” and the Star Trek sounding “The God Complex” (S6x11) on episdode #38.

FNW 9/23 – is the penultimate (see Keith, I DO listen to you!) Key To Time story, “The Power Of Kroll”

Episode #39 of the podcast is “The Power Of Kroll” and “Closing Time” (S6x12)

And finally we wrap up the Key To Time saga on 9/30 Friday Night Who with “The Armageddon Factor”

Traveling The Vortex episode #40 (40?!? Seriously?!?  WOW!) will be our reviews of “The Armageddon Factor” and the final episode of series six, “The Wedding Of River Song” (S6x13)

And then a special treat.  It occures to us that our novice Keith will have watched the LAST episode of Doctor Who ever made (or at least the most current), we should go back and bookend it with the FIRST episode of Doctor Who ever made.  So, for Friday Night Who on 10/7, we’ll be watching “An Unearthly Child” with William Hartnell.

Our review for that week (episode #41) will cover The Begningings DVD box set, with “An Unearthly Child” and “Edge Of Destruction” (although I imagine we’ll gloss over or ignore “The Daleks” since we’ve already reviewed that monster story!)

And speaking of Monsters, while I have a tenetive plan mapped out for where we go after this, does anybody want to do some Halloween themed Friday Night Whos at that time?  Sound off!
