Time to finish what we started last week! Find out what happens in the rest of “The Mind of Evil” for this week’s Friday Night Who!
In this week’s show we step away from Doctor Who for a brief moment once again to review material featuring one of our favorite actors who’ve portrayed other characters other than the Doctor. This time its Jon Pertwee’s performance in the other role he made famous, Worzel Gummidge. We’ll give our impressions on his performance in episodes we chose at random.
Also, a look at the news of the week, including some more exciting announcements from Big Finish.
And, of course, your feedback.
It’s March and that means it’s time to celebrate the 3rd Doctor, this time by watching one we haven’t seen before… “The Mind of Evil”
An update for the schedule for you guys!
The biggest local event of the year kicks off on Friday this week, and to celebrate Karen Gillan and Caitlin Blackwood coming to our neck of the woods our special Planet Comicon Friday Night Who on 3/13 is “The Eleventh Hour” (This marks an update from the previously scheduled “Sound Of Drums / Last Of The Time Lords” since John Barrowman had to cancel his appearance.)
We’ll bring you all the news and recaps of this year’s Planet Comicon in TTV episode #220.
To celebrate it’s “10th Anniversary” since airing, (though a couple of days early) our FNW offering on 3/20 is “Rose”.
TTV #221 takes a detailed look at New Who: 10 Years Out Of The Wilderness. We’ll be discussing various wilderness years Who connections.
FNW on 3/27 will be the first three parts of the Jon Pertwee story “The Mind Of Evil”.
And just sneaking in at the end of the month in TTV #222 is our 3rd Beyond The Doctor: Jon Pertwee. We’ll be reviewing his appearances in Worzel Gummidge, which appear to be wildly available on the youtubes.
FNW 4/3 we finish “The Mind Of Evil” Parts 4-6.
Its the return of everyone’s favorite villain in TTV #223 – Adversary Archive, The Master II, with looks at “The Mind Of Evil”, and Big Finish #49 “Master”.
Hope you got your season 8 DVDs, cause FNW on 4/10 is Capaldi’s intro, “Deep Breath”.
Which frees TTV #224 to return to Paul McGann in Big Finish 8th Doctor Adventures #3 “Horror Of Glam Rock”, and #4 “Immortal Beloved”.
Beyond that? More Daleks than you can shake a stick at! (and really, it wouldn’t do you much good, they’d just exterminate the stick) and Tom Baker’s Beyond the Doctor segment. There’s a hint if you add 2 plus 2…
This week’s Friday Night Who might also be a bit of a stretch…but what the heck?! We’re watching the 3rd Doctor story “Carnival of Monsters”!
As this is posted it’s Easter Saturday! Also know as August 23rd, the triumphant day that the 12th Doctor in the form of Peter Capaldi makes his fully fledged debut. So you know in Episode 191 we will be discussing Deep Breath and our initial reaction to the newest incarnation.
But you already knew that if you’re a listener to the show. And by deductive logic you also know what the next 12 episodes of the podcast will be about. But what about Friday Night Who? The 3 of us (but mostly Shaun) have scoured the internet (without spoiling ourselves too much) to try our best to match up some previous stories with what’s happening in Series 8. Being as we don’t have official synopsis for all the episodes some may be way off base, but hey we tried. By now if you haven’t already skipped forward to see what’s coming up are wanting to see what we have planned. So without further ado…the Vortex schedule without our reasoning…and WITH episode titles if you find that sort of thing spoilers.
For Friday Night Who on August 29th we will watch the Sixth Doctor story “Revelation of the Daleks” starring Colin Baker.
For Episode #192 of the podcast we will be discussing the second episode of series 8, “Into the Dalek”.
The first Friday Night Who in September brings us to the Fourth Doctor’s era in the middle of the Key to Time series, with “The Androids of Tara” starring Tom Baker.
The following podcast, episode #193 will have us discussing the 3rd episode of the season, “Robots of Sherwood”.
The 12th of September we will jump forward to the Ninth Doctor’s era with “The Unquiet Dead” staring Christopher Eccelston.
Episode #194 will see us reviewing episode 4….”Listen”.
Friday Night Who for September 19th brings us to a story where we first meet someone else from the Doctor’s home planet in “The Time Meddler” staring the First Doctor William Hartnell.
Episode 5, “Time Heist” of Series 8 brings us to Episode #195 of the podcast.
The last Friday Night Who in September brings a clash of “new” Who and “classic” Who in the Tenth Doctor story “School Reunion” staring David Tennant and the much loved and missed Elisabeth Sladen on the 26th.
Episode #196 of the podcast will be dedicated to the 6th episode of series 8…”The Caretaker”. Hard to believe we’re now halfway through the season.
We start out October Friday Night Whos with “Planet of Fire” on the 3rd starring Peter Davison as the Fifth Doctor.
The second half of the season starts off with what looks like a bang in an episode titled “Kill the Moon” and we’ll discuss the moral implications of killing a non-sentient hunk of rock (or you know just review it) in episode #197 of the podcast.
The 10th of October brings us our first repeat Doctor for Friday Night Who so far this season with one of Glenn’s favorites “The Pyramids of Mars” starring Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor.
Episode #198 of the podcast has us reviewing episode 8 of the season “Mummy on the Orient Express”
Brittany will be happy that the Third Doctor get’s his go during Friday Night Who on October 17th in “Carnival of Monsters”
And we will discuss episode 9 “Flatline” on podcast #199…holy crap we’re about to hit a milestone!
Matt Smith makes his return to Friday Night Who since we started this season in “The Doctor, the Widow & the Wardrobe” on October 24th.
Let’s hope Episode 10, “In the Forest of the Night” is a good one, because that’s what we’re discussing in our 200th episode of the podcast!!! A Major epiversary!!! Thanks to everyone who’s listened and kept us going to 200 episodes. You all are wonderful people!
Our Halloween Friday Night Who won’t be as scary as it normally would be…but if you don’t own it, the cost could scare your wallet…we start the first 4 episodes of “the Invasion” starring Patrick Troughton as the Second Doctor.
This is it folks…the 2 part season finale! Episode #201 will have us discussing the first part…”Dark Water”.
We start November by finishing up “The Invasion” parts 5-8 on the 7th.
And we end the season on episode #202 discussing “Death in Heaven” and likely the season as a whole.
As for what’s ahead for the end of the year…well you know we have some catching up to do on the Puffin EBooks and whatever else Shaun has up his sleeve.
We’ve come off our Planet Comicon high of meeting Sylvester McCoy…now it’s time to travel back to the 3rd Doctor’s Era with “The Mutants”!
Since this is a 6 parter…we are splitting it up into 2 weeks. So join the @TravelVortex gang as we tweet along to parts 1-3 at Midnight CDT!
Don’t forget the hashtags #FridayNightWho & #TheMutants!
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!
