Episode 36 – Don’t Panic!

“A plank. The theory is very simple: You walk along it. At the end, you fall off. Drop one thousand feet… dead.”

In this week’s episode we review the next installment in The Key To Time series – The Pirate Planet as well as the newest Eleventh Doctor outing with Night Terrors.

The Key To Scheduling

* Spoilers below if you dont want to see episode titles from the new series!

Home work assignments for those of you following along, the next several weeks will find us deeply entrenched in Tom Baker and Matt Smith, as the continuation of Series Six starts this week with six new episodes, and our Friday Night Who’s will be the six segments of the Key To Time.  The show’s review schedule shakes down like this:

On 8/26 Friday Night Who kicks off with the first story of The Key To Time with “The Ribos Operation”.

Traveling The Vortex #35 will see us reviewing “The Ribos Operation” and S6x08,  “Let’s Kill Hitler”.

Friday Night Who 9/2 is “The Pirate Planet”

Episode #36 covers “The Pirate Planet” and “Night Terrors” (S6x09).

Then on 9/9, one of my favorite episodes, “The Stones Of Blood”.

TTV #37 will be our reviews of “The Stones Of Blood” and S6x10, “The Girl Who Waited”

The week of 9/16 Friday Night Who is “The Androids Of Tara”

And then we’ll review “The Androids Of Tara” and the Star Trek sounding “The God Complex” (S6x11) on episdode #38.

FNW 9/23 – is the penultimate (see Keith, I DO listen to you!) Key To Time story, “The Power Of Kroll”

Episode #39 of the podcast is “The Power Of Kroll” and “Closing Time” (S6x12)

And finally we wrap up the Key To Time saga on 9/30 Friday Night Who with “The Armageddon Factor”

Traveling The Vortex episode #40 (40?!? Seriously?!?  WOW!) will be our reviews of “The Armageddon Factor” and the final episode of series six, “The Wedding Of River Song” (S6x13)

And then a special treat.  It occures to us that our novice Keith will have watched the LAST episode of Doctor Who ever made (or at least the most current), we should go back and bookend it with the FIRST episode of Doctor Who ever made.  So, for Friday Night Who on 10/7, we’ll be watching “An Unearthly Child” with William Hartnell.

Our review for that week (episode #41) will cover The Begningings DVD box set, with “An Unearthly Child” and “Edge Of Destruction” (although I imagine we’ll gloss over or ignore “The Daleks” since we’ve already reviewed that monster story!)

And speaking of Monsters, while I have a tenetive plan mapped out for where we go after this, does anybody want to do some Halloween themed Friday Night Whos at that time?  Sound off!
