It’s been difficult putting this schedule together, as I’m not entirely sure I’m ready to say goodbye to P-Cap (and the BBC continues to fiddle with episode titles depending on what site you visit). At any rate, for those of you that like to follow along at home, or want to take advantage of your new BritBox subscription and join us for our weekly Doctor Who watch/tweet along Friday Night Who, here’s the line up:
TONIGHT, (4/14) Friday Night Who offering is Tom Baker in “Destiny Of The Daleks”. This is notable for also being the first (and so far only) appearance of the Movellans, who are supposed to reappear in this weekend’s season opener. TTV #326 We’ll take a look at “The Pilot” (10×1) and give you our thoughts. NuWho is back, baby! Because we like paring things up when the show comes back, FNW on 4/21 features Matt Smith in “The Girl Who Waited”, because handbots are really close to those emoji bots, right? TTV #327 Details of the emoji bots in our look at “Smile” (10×2) Celebrating both Billie Piper (Rose Tyler) and John Barrowman (Captain Jack Harkness) at this years Planet Comicon in KC, our offering this week (FNW 4/28) is “The Empty Child / The Doctor Dances” with Christopher Eccelston. Side Trip 27 will bring you all the ins and outs of our local big con, Planet Comicon 2017. And TTV #328 (our proper show for the week) will have our thoughts on “Thin Ice” (10×3) Okay, this is totally cheesy and NOT the way to schedule, but FNW 5/5 is “End Of Time / End Of Time Part 2” with David Tennant… …because this week’s NuWho episode is called “Knock, Knock” (10×4). GET IT?!? Yeah, probably no more tie in than that for TTV #329. 5/12 is surprisingly, one we’ve never officially done for Friday Night Who before, Jon Pertwee’s “Terror Of The Autons” TTV #330 will have our thoughts on “Oxygen” (10×5) FNW 5/19 is the last appearance of Missy from Peter Capaldi’s last series, “The Magician’s Apprentice / The Witches Familiar” …because we have it on pretty good authority she returns this season. Will it be in “Extremis” (10×6), discussed in TTV #331?
FNW 5/26 is the Tom Baker classic “Pyramids Of Mars”
TTV #332 has our thoughts on “The Pyramid At The End Of The World” (10×7).
Join us and Frazer Hines at Britishfest in Omaha this weekend. We’ll be watching “The Seeds Of Death” Part 1-3 with Patrick Troughton

and is the only author to write for both classic and NuWho with TTV #335’s discussion topic, “Eaters Of Light” (10×10)
