Episode 161 – The Lion Sleeps Tonight

ttvsmallIn this week’s podcast, we take a look at the final installment in the ‘E-Space Trilogy’ with Warriors’ Gate. We give our impressions on this last in the story arc and then we take a look back at the trilogy as a whole.

Also, some big news for Kansas City’s Planet Comicon, and I mean bigger than Shatner (well, for us and other Whovians). A Doctor is coming to the midwest!

Plus, some pretty big news for Gallifrey One as well.

And, we’ll look at some other news that came out this week, including comic book news.

Oh, and of course, your feedback!

Enjoy!

 

Episode 160 – Evil and Medieval

ttvsmallIn this week’s show we look at two, yes two Fourth Doctor stories.  First is the third in the line of Big Finish Audios featuring Four and Leela, in the historical piece, The Wrath of the Iceni. Then we make a trip back into E-space to visit a thus far stranded Fourth Doctor and Romana II for the blood curdling story, State of Decay.

Also, some grim news as we lost some more Doctor Who connections this paste week.  And some slightly uplifting things as well, we promise.

And of course, your feedback.

Enjoy!

Friday Night Who 11/29

The Five Doctors

 

Since we just got a multi-Doctor anniversary episode with “Day of the Doctor” and will be discussing the Big Finish anniversary “The Light At the End” we figured it would be appropriate to continue the trend with “The Five Doctors” for Friday Night Who!

In space no one can hear you schedule

Sorry for the delay in getting the update out to you, faithful listener, but between New Series Who, 50th Anniversary plans, AND Planet Comicon our new scheduling robot the WHO-9000 has been thrown for quite the loop.  I think we’ve got him reprogramed now, so here’s some upcoming goodies.  (Remember, to make things easy on you with so much going on, the majority of Friday Night Who that is coming up are episodes we’ve already reviewed/watched.)

Our show recording tonight is #120, and we kick off our celebration of the third Doctor era by covering the IDW comic “Prisoners Of Time 3”, as well as have our reviews of BOTH “The Rings Of Akhaten”, and “The Cold War”.

Friday Night Who on 4/19 celebrates third Doctor Jon Pertwee in “The Time Warrior”.

Traveling The Vortex episode #121 finds us discussing the third Doctor Who Revisited special, Big Finish’s “Destiny Of The Doctor: Vengeance Of The Stones”, and new episode “Hide”.

On 4/26 we journey back to the first Doctor William Hartnell and the first TARDIS bound episode, “The Edge Of Destruction” for FNW.

We can’t wait for this week, as TTV #122 includes our  50th Anniversary Discussion of the  3rd Doctor Era, and our reviews of  “Journey To The Centre Of The TARDIS”.

A special treat for @WhovianMich’s birthday on Friday Night Who of 5/3, we’ll be watching her favorite fifth Doctor Peter Davison episode “Enlightenment”.

May starts our celebration of the fourth Doctor, starting with IDW’s Prisoners Of Time 4, and our thoughts on new series’ “The Crimson Horror”.

Some new material hits Friday Night Who on 5/10, with Tom Baker in “Revenge Of The Cybermen”

And then TTV #124 is our Cyberman Archive III with “Revenge Of The Cybermen” and Neil Gaimen’s “Nightmare in Silver” (formerly “The Last Cyberman”).

That should bring us right up to the finale of season 7, and as always, Grand Moff Steven is being tight lipped about it so we’ll wait to schedule that when we know just a bit more than we do now.  Check out our facebook page for the third Doctor poll, and vote on what YOU think is the most iconic episode of his era (that we’ve reviewed).

Now, WHO-9000, can you open the pod bay doors please?

Schedules, Schedules, Get Your Schedules Here!

We’ve tweaked the upcoming schedule a bit to line up better with our 50th Anniversary plans, so for those of you following along at home, here’s an update for the next month or so…

The first week of March (3/1) we’ll finish “The Reign Of Terror” (parts 4-6) on Friday Night Who.

Traveling The Vortex #114 is our First Doctor retrospective.  We’ll discuss “The Reign Of Terror”, give our thoughts on the values of these and other animated episodes, as well as cover the first Doctor era (that we’ve reviewed to date).

Friday Night Who on 3/8 is “The King’s Demons” with fifth Doctor Peter Davison.

TTV #115 covers our reviews of “The King’s Demons” and Big Finish #26 “Primeval”.

Come celebrate my birthday on 3/15 with Tom Baker in “The Ark In Space”.

Traveling The Vortex #116 will have our reviews of “The Ark In Space” and our first foray into the Big Finish 4th Doctor Adventures; #1 “Destination: Nerva”.

On 3/22 our Friday Night Who will be the 2nd Doctor Patrick Troughton in “The Mind Robber”.

And episode #117 will be our Second Doctor retrospective, and have our reviews of the “The Mind Robber” as well as IDW’s comic “Prisoners Of Time” issue 2, and Big Finish’s Shadow of Death (Destiny Of The Doctor 2).

That rams us right up against the new series starting.

(SPOILERS AHEAD) I’m still fleshing things out from that point on, but if the scuttlebutt is to be believed, the first episode of the return of series seven deals with ghosts.  I’d love to pair up the seventh Doctor adventure “Ghost Light” with that one, but we’ll wait and see if things get a bit more nailed down in the coming weeks.
