Episode 187 – All For One!

TTV-Logo-1400-150x150In this week’s show, we head back to France in the 1600’s for the Big Finish audio play The Church and the Crown. This one features The Fifth Doctor, Peri and Erimem. We share our impressions on this historical depiction of the King, the Cardinal and the famous Musketeers.

But first, the new lines of Doctor Who comics launched last week, and we have copies of The Tenth and Eleventh Doctors’ stories. We review the Titan relaunch to the series as well, featuring new companions for brand new adventures.

Plus, our reactions to some of the news items of the week.

And of course, your feedback.

Enjoy!

The Schedule Has Been Prepared For

Finally.  Sorry for the delay in getting this posted, but as always, thanks for your patience.  For those of you who like to follow along at home, read on.  For those of you that like to be surprised by your podcast content, spoilers ahead…

Friday Night Who returns to FRIDAY on  the Fourth Of July with “The Seeds Of Doom”, Parts 1-3 (hey, what could be more patriotic than watching SCORBY blow stuff up?).

TTV #184 will be our reviews of the fifth (and final) season of the Sarah Jane Adventures.

FNW 7/11 sees us finish off “The Seeds Of Doom” Parts 4-6

And then a show I am dreading doing, as we look back in fond remembrance: TTV #185 In Memorium: Elizabeth Sladden: Goodbye, Sarah Jane Smith

A whole month of Audio goodness follows!

Friday Night Who on 7/18 is Sylvester McCoy in “Silver Nemesis”

Which sets us up nicely for Traveling The Vortex #186 since it’s the seventh Doctor month!  We’ll cover Big Finish Audio #36 “The Rapture”, and E Book 7: “The Ripple Effect”.

FNW 7/25 sees Peter Davison return in “Resurrection Of The Daleks”

TTV #187 we’ll give our thoughts on issues #1 of Titan Comics NEW WHO Lines, and cover Big Finish #39 “The Church And The Crown”.

Set the waybac machine (or TARDIS controls) for the William Hartnel era,  FNW on 8/1 is “The Space Museum”

Episode #188 will cover our thoughts on “The Space Museum”, and Big Finish #43 “Doctor Who and The Pirates” (Looking at you, Dr. Phil!)

I know we just did it back in October of last year, but since this is the eighth month, we had to work some Paul McGann in somewhere.  How fitting on 8/8 for Doctor Who: The Movie?

Traveling The Vortex #189 celebrates the eighth Doctor with Big Finish Audio #101 Absolution, and E-Book 8: Spore

Friday Night Who 8/15  brings David Tenant Back in the two part “Human Nature”/”Family Of Blood”.

A special show this week for #190 as we look at the similarities (and differences) between the episode Human Nature, and the New Adventures novel Human Nature by Paul Cornell that it was taken from.

And then, the wait is OVER! We’ll revisit Matt Smith’s departure on 8/23 (sorry Keith) in “The Time Of The Doctor” for Friday Night Who to make room for incoming Peter Capaldi!

and our 191st show will be all about the Series Eight premier “Deep Breath”.

After that?  Well, to quote a certain museum curator, “Who knows?”
