Episode 159 – Runny Science Man

ttvsmallIn this week’s podcast we head back to the Fourth Doctor era with two stories from the scarfed one. First, we take a look at the second Big Finish Fourth Doctor audio, The Renaissance Man. Then, a peek in at the story that introduced Adric to the world with Full Circle, taking us into our first adventure in E-Space.

Plus, a look at the news of the week, including some terrific announcements for not just Series 8, but a glimpse into the future of the show with Series 9.

Also, we’ll touch briefly on some new additions to The Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff.

And, of course, your feedback!

Enjoy!

New Year, New Schedule

*** 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!
