*I’m pretty sure the Big Finish Audio that featured the “black rectangular hole” chasing the Tardis (the time scoop, from “The Five Doctors”) was within the second season of the Paul McGann 8th Doctor Adventures.  I belive it was episode 2.7 “Sisters Of The Flame”, but bewarned!  This is the first of a THREE PART story arc, which continues in the season 2 finale 2.8 “Vengenance Of Morbius” and the season three premier, 3.1 “Orbis”.  A fantastic tale, but does feature some characters from previous 8th Doctor audio adventures. – Shaun

Episode 34 – Goo Goo G’Joob

Third Doctor: Jo, it’s all quite simple – I am he and he is me!
Jo Grant: And we are all together, goo goo g’joob?

In this week’s episode we review four multi-Doctor stories, starting with the classic Third Doctor story, The Three Doctors. We follow that up with the less then stellar, The Two Doctors, and then the absolutely superb mini-episode, Time Crash. And to round things out, we talk a little about the multi-Doctor extravaganza, Dimensions in Time.

Oh, and of course news and your feedback! Enjoy!

Episode 33 – The Episode Of Rassilon

Here it is, and back on time this week. Recorded from our new studio digs (or in other word’s Shaun and Keith’s place) is this week’s show. This time, we review The Five Doctors.

Not much news going on this week, well of course with the exception of Keith moving in with Shaun, and now I only have a 2 minute commute as opposed to a 20 minute commute to record on Sunday. Can you tell how happy I am that Keith moved?

Also, your feedback!

* The Retraction Of Rassilon: Wanting to stem the flow of corrections early, we got into a bit of a quagmire over the name of Patrick Troughton’s son in this episode.  Turns out he has 2, David Troughton is an actor who, among other credits played King Peladon in “The Curse Of Peladon” and his younger brother Michael Troughton is currently at work on a biography of his late father due out in November.

Rested and rejuvenated, Shaun is back from vacation, and we were able to finally sit down and record another episode of Traveling the Vortex.

Episode 26 – The Vortex Code

Sorry for the delay, the delivery guy showed up late with the files necessary to put together a show. I bet some of you were shouting at your iTunes feed “Them Vortex Boys didn’t really get this thing fixed!” Better late than never though, I always say. And I say it a lot because I am always late.

Anywho! This weeks episode we review more Tenth Doctor episodes, starting with the Christmas special, The Runaway Bride. Then on to the beginning of Martha Jones tenure as the companion with Smith and Jones, The Shakespeare Code, and Gridlock.
