    UPDATE: We misspoke on this week’s show. The Havoc Files 2 is not included in the 30% discount with the special EPICLS30 code. Sorry for the misunderstanding. This from Candy Jar:

    To clear up a bit of confusion: The HAVOC Files 2 is *not* included in the 30% offer. All other LS titles are, tho. https://t.co/Gu5bVOtMOj

Here is the audio that we recorded at that panel.

    ttv_logo_newWith the this week’s episode delayed a few days, we wanted to share a bit of the fun we had at Planet Comicon in Kansas City over the weekend. One of the many pleasures we had was the chance to host a panel called Traveling the Vortex: Classic Doctor Who with Jeremy Bulloch. We had the chance to meet and talk with the actor who starred in two Doctor Who stories. Jeremy Bulloch played Tor, the Xeron rebel leader in The Space Museum and Hal the Archer in The Time Warrior. Here is the audio that we recorded at that panel.

    Enjoy!

    ttv_logo_newIn this week’s show we tackle a subject that has sometimes caused great divides in Doctor Who fandom. A controversy so big, that some have chosen to sideline the debate altogether, just to avoid it. However, some cleaver writing has, perhaps solved the issue for good. We discuss the issue with a special guest, and continuity fix-it-man, Andy Frankham-Allen. He’s an author and the deputy editor of the Lethbridge-Stewart series at Candy Jar Books.

    We’ll also review three short stories from Candy Jar, Lethbridge-Stewart: In His Kiss by Sue Hampton, Lethbridge-Stewart: The Black Eggs of Khufu by Tom Dexter, and Lethbridge-Stewart The Enfolded Time by Andy Frankham-Allen

    Plus we address the news of the week.

    And, of course, feedback.
