In this week’s show we go off the rails a bit to talk about Captain America: Civil War. But never fear, we bring it back around to our favorite topic with a review of Doctor Who: The Stone Rose by Jacqueline Rayner. We’ll share what we felt about the first Tenth Doctor story in the New Adventures series of novels and our April book for the Traveling the Vortex Doctor Who Bookclub on Goodreads.
Plus a look at some news including license renewals, convention guest announcements and more from Candy Jar Books’ Lethbridge-Stewart range.
And, of course, your feedback.
Today Titan comics announced a massive crossover even for Doctor Who Comics Day celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the Cybermen!
The 5 issue bi-weekly adventure is titled ‘Supremacy of the Cybermen’ and stars the Ninth Doctor (Christopher Eccleston), Tenth Doctor (David Tennant), Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith), and Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi), and their comic companions – Gabby, Cindy, Alice, Rose (Billie Piper) and Captain Jack (John Barrowman)!
Here’s how Titan comics describe the plot:
“Exiled from Gallifrey at the very end of time, Rassilon, fallen leader of the Time Lords, has been captured by the last of the Cybermen. Now, the Cybermen have access to time travel. With it, every defeat becomes a victory. Every foe is now dead — or Cyberized.”
Written by George Mann & Cavan Scott with art by Alessandro Vitti the first issue drops Wednesday, July 6th, just ahead of Doctor Who Comics Day on Saturday July 9th and will feature 5 variant covers.
2016 marks the 50th anniversary of the show’s iconic cyborgs, the Cybermen. The Cybermen first appeared in the story ‘The Tenth Planet’ in 1966, and have been featured in Doctor Who numerous times since, including being brought back in the “new series” in the 2006 two-part, ‘Rise of the Cybermen’ and ‘The Age of Steel.’
This selection for Friday Night Who, might appear odd, but we think it fits, since the next episode of Who is a first also.
That’s right, everyone’s favorite first “new” series Doctor “light” episode Love and Monsters is on tap for tonight.
Friday Night Who returns to Friday Night again this week, with a story that will make sense if you’ve seen the Series 9 Premier “The Magician’s Apprentice”.
That’s right, we’re doing “The Stolen Earth” & “Journey’s End’
We’re celebrating the 10th anniversary of the show’s return to our screen this week. And what better way to celebrate it, than to watch the episode that launched the return?!
Since we just recently did one Doctor in school teaching for Friday Night Who, and it looks like the 12th Doctor is going to do something simillar we thought “School Reunion” was in order for Friday Night Who this week!
This week’s Friday Night Who might be a bit of a stretch…not knowing much about “Listen” other than it possibly could involve ghosts…we decided to the 9th Doctor story with “ghosts” “The Unquiet Dead”.
In this week’s show we finally take a listen to the Big Finish audio play Jubilee, featuring the Sixth Doctor and Evelyn Smythe. We’ll look at the comparisons between this story and the Ninth Doctor and Rose televised story, Dalek. Find out how much we find in common between the two stories.
Also, some more convention guest announcements.
Plus, our reactions to the newly released Series 8 teaser.
And, of course, your feedback.
