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.

A long bit of insightful feedback, and Keith tells us about his trip to Contagion: Outbreak – Omaha’s Premiere Pop-Culture Expo and Convention.

Oh, and I should mention, we are much more upbeat and positive in this weeks podcast. Sorry, about last week, I don’t know what happened to our energy.

Episode 22 – The Almost Podcast

We call this week’s episode, The Almost Podcast because some listeners will hear almost all of the show before they have to wait another week to hear our review of The Almost People. That’s right, our policy here at Traveling the Vortex is, if it’s aired in the U.K., we’re going to talk about it. So please keep that in mind when listening to this week’s show.

However, there is still plenty for the North American folks to enjoy. We also review the subject of last week’s Seven Weeks for Seven Doctors, Vengeance on Varos, starring the Sixth Doctor and Peri.

Surprisingly, there was no actual feedback this week, however, we do read out a couple of comments that are in reaction to BBC America and SPACE’s decision to delay Series Six for one week for the Memorial Day holiday.

Episode 21 – Old Enough to Drink

We start this week off with a congratulations to Steven Moffat on his BAFTA win. Then reaction to North Ameican TV networks, BBC America and SPACE’s decision to delay Series Six one week for the Memorial Day holiday.

Also, your feedback, including a special poem, by one of our listeners.

We also chime in on Spoliergate, and the impact spoilers have on the enjoyment of our favorite program as well as our policy on them.

And two reviews. Up first is a review of the Fifth Doctor story, Black Orchid, followed by this weeks new Series Six episode, The Rebel Flesh.

And remember, if you subscribed to our podcast through the iTunes store, and you do not receive the show on your feed this week, you WILL need to subscribe through this site.

Enjoy!

Episode 19 – Attack of the Pop Culture References

Better late than never, huh?

In this episode, we review the Third Doctor story Carnival of Monsters. And then a look at Series Six’s latest installment, The Curse of the Black Spot.

The show is laden with pop culture references through out, so jot them all down, there may be a pop quiz later!
