Good morning, Mr. Phelps. As promised, here’s the schedule leading up to the start of Series 9. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to use this road map to follow along at home.
Friday Night Who is our weekly watch along. We do a different episode every Friday night at midnight and tweet along to the fun, using the hashtag #FridayNightWho. On 8/14, join us for the re-appearance of Donna in the 10th Doctor episode, “Partners In Crime”.
Our podcast episode #242 will cover the exciting events on Titan Doctor Who Comics Day! We’ll also cover the next few issues of the 10th (#10), 11th (#12-15) and 12th Doctor (#6-10) arcs to get caught up… as well as the first issue of the Paul Cornell scripted “Four Doctors” which releases THIS WEEK!
William Hartnell makes a return appearance to Friday Night Who on 8/21 in “The Aztecs”.
Since we’ve already reviewed that one, TTV #243 takes us back to Big Finish, with the sixth Doctor and Evelyn audios #60 “Medicinal Purposes” and #78 “Pier Pressure”.
FNW on 8/28 begins the end of Jon Pertwee with “Planet Of The Spiders”. This is another one that is currently unavailable on DVD, so some of you may have difficulty finding it. Our apologies, though it does appear to be available on DailyMotion and Hulu. Because it’s a long (six parter) we’re only doing the first three this night.
TTV #244 brings more Big Finish (we’re knocking a few of them out since we will have a long spell during series 9 where we AREN’T reviewing audio stories.) This time out is the fifth Doctor and Turlough in #76 “Singularity”, then picking up the next Peri and Erimim adventure in #71 “The Council Of Nicaea”.
FNW 9/4 finishes off “Planet Of The Spiders” with parts 4-6.
TTV #245 will have our review of “Planet Of The Spiders”.
FNW 9/11 we’ll do the finale of series 8, “Dark Water” / “Death In Heaven”.
And TTV #246 will have our final round of Big Finish for a while closes out the first season of the 8th Doctor Adventures: #7 & #8 “Human Resources Part 1 & 2”
Friday Night Who will happen at a special time on 9/18 as we do “The Rescue” with William Hartnell, coming to you live from Topeka’s Geek Expo, TOPCON! We’ll let you in on more details as we get them with our schedule for the con. Alas, this is another one currently in the video vault, but again available on DailyMotion and Hulu.
and rounding out things with episode #247, we’ll cover the fun of TopCon and have our thoughts on the first episode of series 9, “The Magician’s Apprentice”!
Beyond that? Well if you or any of your team are captured or killed, we will disavow all knowledge of these proceedings. Good luck. This schedule will self destruct in 5 seconds…
