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.

And as usual, your feedback. (We even had our first Google Voice submission, thanks Muldwych!)

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

Enjoy!
