We honor Colin Baker’s visit to our neck of the woods at Kansas City Comic Con by watching “Attack of the Cybermen” this week!

Like sands through the hourglass… No, not going there.
First up, a change in our programing. Originally we were going to do “The Aztecs” for Friday Night Who on 6/26, but that has changed to “The Web Of Fear” (Parts 1-3). More details forthcoming…
TTV #235 is our reviews of two more Paul McGann Big Finish 8th Doctor Adventures, #5 “Phobos” and #6 “No More Lies”.
FNW on 7/3 is the second half of “The Web Of Fear” (Parts 4-6).
And now the reason for the change. To help integrate and interact a bit with our Traveling The Vortex Book Club over on Goodreads, we’re actually going to use episode #236 to review the book selection from the month of June! Lethbridge Stewart: The Forgotten Son by Andy Frankham-Allen.
FNW 7/10 is Matt Smith in “A Good Man Goes To War”.
TTV #237 will be all about our misadventures in Omaha for this year’s British Fest 2015 (featuring friend of the show Simon Fisher-Becker!
Finally, a plan that has been in the works from almost the inception of this podcast! Friday Night Who on 7/17 is “Ghost Light” (Our apologies in advance, as we know this one is NOT readily available to most folk since the DVD is out of print.)
FNW 7/24 is “The Curse Of Fenric” (and much easier to get ahold of via Netflix, although this one too is out of print on DVD.)
Traveling The Vortex #239 has our review of “The Curse Of Fenric”, and Big Finish #58 “Harvest”.
* CORRECTION Originally this read Big Finish #67 “Dreamtime”. Shaun skipped ahead, and it wasn’t until just now that Keith caught it. The actual review will be over #58 “Harvest”. Sorry for the confusion and late notice!
We’ll finish out July on 7/31 with “Survival” for Friday Night Who.
And then the culmination! TTV #240 is a Companion Archive – Dorothy Gale McShane and The Ace Trilogy: “Ghost Light”, “The Curse Of Fenric”, “Survival”.
Ol’ Sixie graces FNW on 8/7 in “Attack Of The Cybermen”.
And graces our podcast #241, wherein we’ll discuss Kansas City ComicCon (KCCC) featuring… you guessed it, Colin Baker!
Jump back to New Who for Friday Night Who on 8/14 with “Partners In Crime”.
And then a special TTV #242 to celebrate Titan Doctor Who Comics Day!
Beyond that? Well, the word on the street is that a certain Time Lord will be gracing our television screens again in some all new adventures for season 9… Easter Saturday can’t come soon enough!
In this week’s episode we tackle another Adversary Archive – The Cybermen 2.0. A look at two stories featuring the silver giants, the Sixth Doctor’s encounter with the Cybermen in Attack of the Cybermen, and the Seventh Doctor’s go around with the metal menace, Silver Nemesis.
Also, some birthday wishes for five artists who have left their impressions in the Whoniverse, and a look at some of the stories making headlines in Doctor Who news.
Oh, and of course, you feedback.
Links mentioned in this week’s show:
Reference videos in “Odd Duck Phil’s message:
Recovering from Gallifrey One (and I do mean recovering. I think someone gave me the funk, but I’m hopeful it’s just sinuses.) and I thought maybe I should update all of you on the schedule, cause there’s a few big things on the horizon, and I know how some of you like to do your homework for our shows…
We’ll record episode #60 tonight, a full report of my experiences at Gally. Mel will join us in studio, and you can look for this on the feeds tomorrow.
This Friday, 2/24, we’ll complete the Black Guardian Trilogy on Friday Night Who with “Enlightenment”.
Traveling The Vortex episode #61 will be our complete recap of the Black Guardian Trilogy, as we talk about all three Peter Davison episodes, “Mawdryn Undead”, “Terminus” and “Enlightenment”.
Barring such a long winded Gally breakdown that we go two episodes (which I don’t see happening. lol) the following week 3/2 on Friday Night Who, we’ll watch Colin Baker in “Attack Of The Cybermen”
TTV #62 is a review of The Sarah Jane Adventures: Series 1. This is only two weeks out, so you may want to start working your way through them now!
FNW on 3/9 is Sylvester McCoy’s Cyberman story, “Silver Nemesis”
News to keep Keith happy, TTV #63 will be our second Adversary Archive on the Cybermen, as we discuss “Attack Of The Cybermen” and “Silver Nemesis”.
Taking advantage of the new DVD releases this month, Friday Night Who on 3/16 is “The Face Of Evil” with Tom Baker. (This title releases earlier that week in North America, so we are right out of the gate here!)
Another homework heavy podcast here, as TTV #64 is our second Big Finish block with Paul McGann, covering the next three 8th Doctor stories – #19 Minuet In Hell, #28 Invaders From Mars, and #29 The Chimes Of Midnight
FNW on 3/23 is another new release for this month, “The Robots Of Death – Special Edition” again with Tom Baker.
Episode #65 is, believe it or not, only our second Companion Archive, this one on Leela, and covers the two new releases we’ll have just watched, “The Face Of Evil” and “The Robots Of Death”.
So that brings you up to speed. As always, the schedule is subject to change. And because I know some of you are dying to plan out even farther, let me give you a hint…
