Illness has delayed us again, so please forgive our tardiness again this week. However, we have returned and this week we explore the Fourth Doctor and Roman II story, Meglos. Find out what we have to say about this one.
Plus, more Power of the Daleks news, which brings some schedule foul ups for us, once again.
Hey gang, as we discussed on the podcast this week, there has been a slight shift in the programming, since Power of the Daleks wont actually release in time for Friday Night Who, this week we’ve shuffled some things around. The updated (and expanded! NOW THROUGH 2017) schedule follows, for those of you who like to follow things.
Okay, since Power isn’t going to be ready yet, we stepped up the Tom Baker episode Meglos for Friday Night Who on 11/18
Episode #305 of Traveling The Vortex is our discussion of Meglos
THEN we finally get Power on for FNW. It’s a six parter, so we’re breaking it in two. The Power of the Daleks Part 1-3 11/25
In TTV #306 we’ll take a look at the Titan Comics 4th Doctor Mini-Series, and Big Finish 4th Doctor Adventures S2: #4 The Justice Of Jalxar

Time Eddy II weekend is upon us! So here’s an update on things to come.
What better way to celebrate the fifth Doctor Peter Davison’s appearance at Time Eddy than to watch “The Five Doctors” for our Friday Night Who selection that weekend on 10-14?
Well, actually, there is a better way to celebrate his appearance at Time Eddy II. With a Stuffed-to-the-gills celebration of our 300 episode recounting our con adventures and MANY surprises.
Friday Night Who on 10/21 is “The Caretaker” with Peter Capaldi
TTV #301 is a Companion Archive, with a twist. We’ll be discussing Coal Hill School! Talking the Class premiere, and reviewing the comic The Monsters Of Coal Hill, and the short story Nothing at the End of the Lane.
Did you know this October marks the 50th Anniversary of the Cybermen? Well it does. So our Halloween offering this year for FNW on 10/28 is their first appearance, “The Tenth Planet” with first Doctor William Hartnell
TTV #302 – Silver & Gold: The Cybermen Turn 50. Look for plenty of squee from Keith AND Adversary Archive: The Cybermen IV! We’ll take a look at Big Finish mainline stories #86 “The Reaping” and #87 “The Gathering”.
FNW 11/4 – “Inferno” Parts 1-4 finishes off a year of Liz Shaw for us. (Did you notice all our third doctor FNW selections this year featured Liz? Neither did we. But once we did notice, we had to include her swan song.)
And since we’e on the subject of Liz Shaw, how about a Companion Archive? We’ll talk about her career and review Big Finish Companion Chronicle Season 1 #3, “The Blue Tooth”.
We’ll finish off “Inferno” with Parts 5-7 on 11/11 for FNW.
Which should set us up nicely for episode #304 where we’ll take a look at the Candy Jar short stories featured in The Havoc Files 2.

FNW 11/25 will finish “The Power of the Daleks” with Parts 4-6.
TTV #306 will have our thoughts on this Lost in Time adventure “The Power of the Daleks” with looks at both the animated recon and the Novel. (Though not really Lost any more, but we’ll talk more about that on the cast!)
Friday Night Who on 12/2 is Tom Baker in “Meglos”.
