Well, we’ve made it to episode 300. And there was no better time to make this milestone as this past weekend where we celebrated at Time Eddy II, the Wichita Doctor Who convention right here in our home state of Kansas. We came back exhausted from the event, but with some memories that we will cherish forever.
And, we have with us some material that you will only hear, right here on the program.
It’s a long episode this week, the longest we’ve produced in some time, But, we hope it will be worth it as we talk about our weekend adventure at a convention that should be heralded as a premiere event for years to come.
Time Eddy II weekend is upon us! So here’s an update on things to come.
What better way to celebrate the fifth Doctor Peter Davison’s appearance at Time Eddy than to watch “The Five Doctors” for our Friday Night Who selection that weekend on 10-14?
Well, actually, there is a better way to celebrate his appearance at Time Eddy II. With a Stuffed-to-the-gills celebration of our 300 episode recounting our con adventures and MANY surprises.
Friday Night Who on 10/21 is “The Caretaker” with Peter Capaldi
TTV #301 is a Companion Archive, with a twist. We’ll be discussing Coal Hill School! Talking the Class premiere, and reviewing the comic The Monsters Of Coal Hill, and the short story Nothing at the End of the Lane.
Did you know this October marks the 50th Anniversary of the Cybermen? Well it does. So our Halloween offering this year for FNW on 10/28 is their first appearance, “The Tenth Planet” with first Doctor William Hartnell
TTV #302 – Silver & Gold: The Cybermen Turn 50. Look for plenty of squee from Keith AND Adversary Archive: The Cybermen IV! We’ll take a look at Big Finish mainline stories #86 “The Reaping” and #87 “The Gathering”.
FNW 11/4 – “Inferno” Parts 1-4 finishes off a year of Liz Shaw for us. (Did you notice all our third doctor FNW selections this year featured Liz? Neither did we. But once we did notice, we had to include her swan song.)
And since we’e on the subject of Liz Shaw, how about a Companion Archive? We’ll talk about her career and review Big Finish Companion Chronicle Season 1 #3, “The Blue Tooth”.
We’ll finish off “Inferno” with Parts 5-7 on 11/11 for FNW.
Which should set us up nicely for episode #304 where we’ll take a look at the Candy Jar short stories featured in The Havoc Files 2.
FINALLY! AFTER MONTHS OF SPECULATION, IT IS OUT, AVAILABLE AND WILL BE WATCHED! FNW 11/18 is the newly animated “The Power of the Daleks” Part 1-3!

FNW 11/25 will finish “The Power of the Daleks” with Parts 4-6.
TTV #306 will have our thoughts on this Lost in Time adventure “The Power of the Daleks” with looks at both the animated recon and the Novel. (Though not really Lost any more, but we’ll talk more about that on the cast!)
Friday Night Who on 12/2 is Tom Baker in “Meglos”.
