It wasn’t that long ago that “The Fires of Pompeii” was on tap for Friday Night Who…but for allegedly good reason it comes back this week.

*** CORRECTED ***
As the final days of Matt Smith and 2013 wane and Peter Capaldi and 2014 near, we present the schedule for January of those of you who like to follow along at home. Sorry for the late notice positing this, holiday scheduling is trixy for fat Hobbitses.
The last Friday Night Who of 2013 features Peter Capaldi as… some other guy. David Tennant stars in “The Fires Of Pompeii”.
Our show this week is all about the epic Christmas special “The Time Of The Doctor” and bidding Matt Smith a fond farewell.
* On 1/3 we’ll watch first Doctor William Hartnell in “Planet Of Giants” (NOT “The Sensorites”) for FNW.
* TTV #158 will have our review of “Planet Of Giants”, and the first of last year’s E Books: “A Big Hand For The Doctor”.
Friday Night Who on 1/10 starts “The E-Space Trilogy: Full Circle” with fourth Doctor Tom Baker.
TTV #159 is the Big Finish 4th Doctor Adventure #2: “The Renaissance Man”, and “Full Circle”.
FNW 1/17 continues “The E-Space Trilogy: State Of Decay”.
TTV #160 is Big Finish 4th Doctor Adventures #3: “The Wrath of The Iceni” and “State Of Decay”.
We finish “The E-Space Trilogy: Warriors Gate” for Friday Night Who on 1/24.
Our show (TTV #161) that week will cover “Warriors Gate”, and The E-Space Trilogy in full.
Christopher Eccleston rounds out the month for FNW on 1/31 in the two part “Aliens In London / World War III”
Leaving our show (TTV #162) open for some Paul McGann Big Finish stories, #75 “Scaredy Cat”, and #77 “Other Lives”.
That takes us up to February, which of course is Gally, and sees the US release of “The Moonbase”. More details as we get them!
We end 2013 by looking ahead during Friday Night Who.
Join us at Midnight CST as we watch The Fires of Pompeii the previous story featuring the actor incoming as the Doctor, Peter Capaldi.
Folow @TravelVortex, @VortexKeith, @VortexShaun, & @VortexGlenn for this tweet along and keep an eye out for the hashtags #FridayNightWho & #TheFiresofPompeii
While the rest of Whoville catches their collective breaths after the 50th, here at Traveling The Vortex, we still have miles to go before we sleep.
First up is a surprise addition to the schedule, our impromptu “Who With Friends” will be doing “The Three Doctors” sometime this week, keep an eye on @VortexKeith twitter feed for details.
Officially, if you’re not all tuckered out from Thanksgiving turkey and Black Friday shopping, Friday Night Who on 11/29 will be “The Five Doctors (Special Edition)”.
Our show this week (TTV #153) covers the audio goodness of Big Finish with a detailed look at “The Light At The End”.
Join us in sending all our love to long ago. William Hartnell’s swan song “The Tenth Planet” is Friday Night Who 12/6.
That sets up TTV #154 to be Cybermen Archive IV, as we review “The Tenth Planet”, and Big Finish #34 “Spare Parts”.
FNW 12/13 brings us Christopher Eccelston in “The Long Game”.
Which sets up TTV #155 where we’ll cover the ending of IDW Prisoners Of Time comic with a look at issues 11 and 12. And since December is our month to celebrate the 11th Doctor… (or is it twelfth now? HA! Traveling The Vortex had it right all along!) we’ll discuss Doctor Who Revisited: the 11th Doctor.
Just prior to Christmas, on 12/20 Friday Night Who celebrates with “The Doctor, The Widow & The Wardrobe”.
We continue our 11th Doctor celebrations in TTV #156 with a look at Big Finish “Destiny Of The Doctor: The Time Machine”, and our retrospective 50th Anniversary Discussion over the 11th Doctor Era.
Friday Night Who heralds the arrival of Peter Capaldi on 12/27 with “The Fires Of Pompeii”.
And we round out the year with TTV #157 and our discussion of the 2013 Xmas Special, which if I know Moffat (and I do kids, oh yes, I do) will be called “Silent Night”.
And that brings us up to 2014, and our (gulp) third year of the podcast. As always we thank you, our listeners and fans for keeping us around, keeping us honest, keeping us humble… and sharing the love.
What? You want a hint of next year? Really? Do I have to keep doing that sneak peak thing? I mean it was cute and clever a few times, but you really want more? (sigh) Okay, okay. January is still in a state of temporal flux while DVD release dates are hammered out, but you might want to make sure a certain trilogy is in your catalogue, least you be left in E-Space…
