For those of you who did NOT catch the special in theaters (or somehow managed to leave before the credits had finished-do those people exist?) the BBC has posted the “Behind The Lens” feature that followed the presentation.
Listener and Traveling the Vortex guest correspondent, Rachel is back home from her adventure to Chicago TARDIS over the Thanksgiving weekend. She has been gracious enough to file a report on her trip for this special Side Trip edition of the show.
If you’d like to see more about the journey, be sure to visit her website – Styles and Smarts
If you, too went to Chicago TARDIS, please feel free to share your pictures, write to us about your experience, or just leave us a comment below!
Meanwhile, enjoy Rachel’s recount of the event, and a BIG THANKS to her for sharing it with our listeners and friends.
From the very beginning, it is clear that the Master is somehow involved.
By the end, for the Doctors, there may only be darkness.
In this week’s episode, we delve into some multi-Doctor goodness with the Big Finish Audio story, The Light at the End. We discuss it’s impressive structure and what makes it a perfect multi-Doctor venue.
Also, we’ll tackle some of the big news stories of the week and some are convention updates that have us excited.
Since we just got a multi-Doctor anniversary episode with “Day of the Doctor” and will be discussing the Big Finish anniversary “The Light At the End” we figured it would be appropriate to continue the trend with “The Five Doctors” for Friday Night Who!
Join @TravelVortex, @VortexKeith, @VortexGlenn & @VortexShaun as they tweet along to the Special Edition (The 1999 DVD release and Disc 2 in the 2008 25th Anniversary release) at Midnight CST!
Keep an eye out for the hashtags #FridayNightWho & #TheFiveDoctors!
“A man is the sum of his memories. A Time Lord even more so.”
The day finally arrived, and the three of us have been on a three day emotional high. But, as we settle down, weary from the journey, we realize that the celebrations go on. The fiftieth anniversary year is not over, it’s only now in full swing.
That being said, it’s time for us to reveal our opinions of the weekend’s goodness, and share our reviews of An Adventure in Space and Time, The Day of the Doctor, and The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot.
And of course, all of your glorious impressions and feedback.
While the rest of Whoville catches their collective breaths after the 50th, here at Traveling The Vortex, we still have miles to go before we sleep.
First up is a surprise addition to the schedule, our impromptu “Who With Friends” will be doing “The Three Doctors” sometime this week, keep an eye on @VortexKeith twitter feed for details.
Officially, if you’re not all tuckered out from Thanksgiving turkey and Black Friday shopping, Friday Night Who on 11/29 will be “The Five Doctors (Special Edition)”.
Our show this week (TTV #153) covers the audio goodness of Big Finish with a detailed look at “The Light At The End”.
Join us in sending all our love to long ago. William Hartnell’s swan song “The Tenth Planet” is Friday Night Who 12/6.
That sets up TTV #154 to be Cybermen Archive IV, as we review “The Tenth Planet”, and Big Finish #34 “Spare Parts”.
FNW 12/13 brings us Christopher Eccelston in “The Long Game”.
Which sets up TTV #155 where we’ll cover the ending of IDW Prisoners Of Time comic with a look at issues 11 and 12. And since December is our month to celebrate the 11th Doctor… (or is it twelfth now? HA! Traveling The Vortex had it right all along!) we’ll discuss Doctor Who Revisited: the 11th Doctor.
Just prior to Christmas, on 12/20 Friday Night Who celebrates with “The Doctor, The Widow & The Wardrobe”.
We continue our 11th Doctor celebrations in TTV #156 with a look at Big Finish “Destiny Of The Doctor: The Time Machine”, and our retrospective 50th Anniversary Discussion over the 11th Doctor Era.
Friday Night Who heralds the arrival of Peter Capaldi on 12/27 with “The Fires Of Pompeii”.
And we round out the year with TTV #157 and our discussion of the 2013 Xmas Special, which if I know Moffat (and I do kids, oh yes, I do) will be called “Silent Night”.
And that brings us up to 2014, and our (gulp) third year of the podcast. As always we thank you, our listeners and fans for keeping us around, keeping us honest, keeping us humble… and sharing the love.
What? You want a hint of next year? Really? Do I have to keep doing that sneak peak thing? I mean it was cute and clever a few times, but you really want more? (sigh) Okay, okay. January is still in a state of temporal flux while DVD release dates are hammered out, but you might want to make sure a certain trilogy is in your catalogue, least you be left in E-Space…
