Episode 214 – Red, Red, RED

TTV-Logo-1400-150x150In this week’s show we take a look at the First Doctor story, The Sensorites. We visit the Sense Sphere and tap into the minds of these characters and give our impression of the story.

Then, we let you know what we thought of the Big Finish audio play, Red, featuring the Seventh Doctor and Mel.

Also, another Doctor Who: Legacy tip of the week.

And, not a lot of news in Doctor Who fandom, however, we’ll give our reactions to the few there are.

And, of course, your feedback

Enjoy!

Spring Into Our New Schedule

A bit late for my taste in trying to keep you all up to date, but here we go for the next batch of goodies!

For our last Friday Night Who of January (1/30) we’ll finish off  “The Sensorites” with parts 4-6.

Our show this week (TTV #214) covers “The Sensorites”, and Big Finish Audio mainline story #85 Red, (featuring Sylvester McCoy, NOT Peter Davison as I had previously insinuated. Oops.)

FNW on 2/6 is the fourth Doctor story “Underworld”.

TTV #215: We’ll review “Underworld” and Big Finish 4th Doctor Adventures #4: “Energy Of The Daleks”.

Con season officially starts this week, as Shaun will be traveling to Galifrey One in LA. FNW for 2/13 is the 50th anniversary story “Day Of The Doctor”

…which allows the boys left behind to do a book review over The Engines Of War in TTV #216. (Shaun may or may not be able to take part.)

FNW on 2/20 is “Boom Town”

and TTV #217 will have full reports from Shaun and Mel (and hopefully some surprises) over The 26 Seasons of Gallifrey One.

FNW 2/27 starts off the epic Patrick Troughton adventure “The Ice Warriors” with Parts 1-3.

Sneaking in right at the end of February in TTV #218 is our second “Beyond The Doctor” segment featuring Patrick Troughton.  We’ll be reviewing Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger.

Friday Night Who on 3/6 finishes “The Ice Warriors” Part 4-6.

And then, TTV #219 is an Adversary Archive: The Ice Warriors 2! with our reviews of “The Ice Warriors” (now with animation), and Big Finish audio #8 Red Dawn.

The following week is Kansas City’s Planet Comicon! in celebration of con guest John Barrowman, we’ll watch “The Sound Of Drums / The Last Of The Time Lords” on 2/13  (but due to con obligations the boys themselves may be absent)

And our show #220 will bring you all the awesomeness that is Planet Comicon 2015.

Beyond that? Well, it might just be time to bone up on your knowledge of the Master and his evil mind…

 

Friday Night Who 1/23

We go all the way back to the First Doctor’s era with one we haven’t reviewed. But since “The Sensorites” is a long one, we’re splitting it up between 2 weeks.

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!
