Michelle’s Birthday Gifts

Frequent listener, feedbacker and Friday Night Whoer recently had a birthday. She shared her birthday activities with us in our most recent episode.

She got quite a few Doctor Who gifts from her parents. As she said in her feedback”

They gave me a TARDIS night light, a TARDIS bracelet, a TARDIS pillow and a pack of 5 pairs of Doctor Who socks. The pillow makes the materialization noise so I’ve included a video of that. “

Below is the picture and video she references. Enjoy and Happy Belated Birthday Michelle!

May The Schedule Be With You

Here’s a schedule update to carry us forward into June:

Friday Night Who on 4/25 is the recently discovered (and just released on DVD in North America) Patrick Troughton story “The Web Of Fear” Parts 1-3.

Show #174 finishes our review of  “Torchwood: Miracle Day” (episodes 6-10), as well as an overview of the entire season, and the web comic “Web Of Lies”.

FNW on 5/2 we complete “The Web Of Fear” Parts 4-6.

To celebrate our epivesrary in episode #175,  we present an Adversary Archive on The Great Intelligence.  At least the first part. We’ll be covering it’s appearances in “The Snowmen”, “The Abominable Snowmen* “, and have our review of “The Web Of Fear”.

* NOTE – “The Abominable Snowmen” is not available other than as recon or book format, as it has unfortunately not been recovered. You may have some difficulty finding it to join in our review.

FNW 5/9 is a taste of Matt Smith in “The Bells Of St. John”.

We continue our Adversary Archive on The Great Intelligence with Part 2 in Traveling The Vortex #176.  We’ll be covering the villains appearances in “Downtime* “, “The Bells Of St. John”, and “The Name Of The Doctor”.

* NOTE – “Downtime” is a fan produced spin off film that had a VHS release, and was also part of the Virgin New Adventures line of books. As such, you may have some difficulty finding it to join in our review.

May is the fifth Doctor’s month, so for Friday Night Who on 5/16 we’ll watching “Four To Doomsday”.

TTV #177 has our reviews of “Four To Doomsday” and E Book 5 “Tip Of The Tongue”.

Ninth Doctor Christopher Eccleston comes back to Friday Night Who on 5/23 in “Dalek”.

Which sets up episode #178 – The Adaptation Argument. We’ll be comparing and contrasting the supposed connections between Big Finish #40 “Jubilee” vs “Dalek”.

More fifth Doctor on 5/30 for FNW as we (finally! Chrissy shouts) watch “Caves Of Androzani”.

Our entire show for #179 is dedicated to the masterpiece that is “Caves Of Androzani”, and weather or not its worthy of that status.

And as we wind into June, 6/6 brings us the next story, Colin Baker’s debut in “The Twin Dilemma”.

June is the sixth Doctor’s month, so Traveling The Vortex #180 is all about him. We’ll review “The Twin Dilemma” and E Book 6  “Something Borrowed”.

After that?  Not a clue yet. But we’ll keep you posted.
