In this week’s podcast, we’re joined by author and Candy Jar Books editor, Andy Frankham-Allen. We pick his brain a little this week and discuss the recent Lethbridge-Stewart novel, Night of the Intelligence and other topics in the range.
Then we torture… err… keep him around to discuss this week’s review of the Third Doctor and Jo Grant story, Colony in space.
He also, joins us as we weigh in on the news of the week.
It’s another “Funky Pertwee” episode tonight, or at least, half of one. Grab your DVD or boot up your Britbox subscriptions and join us for the first three parts of “Colony In Space” tonight at the *new* time of 10:30pm Central. Be sure to follow us on twitter (@travelvortex) and look for the #FridayNightWho #ColonyInSpace hashtags to join the conversation…
As we discussed on the podcast this week there is a tweak to the schedule, (we have added a week to our Candy Jar book reviews to better get caught up and cover the awesomeness there in.) Changes marked in red. The rest of the schedule stays the same, just backs up a week…
First, the big super huge announcement you may have missed… Based on YOUR feedback, (no, not you. You. No, you! You in the back. YES YOU! YOUR FEEDBACK!) Our weekly Doctor Who watch along Friday Night Who has been moved to a new time, permanently! (Well, as permanent as anything is in this crazy mixed up world of ours.)
