And as promised on last week’s podcast, here’s the schedule to finish out the wild ride that has been 2014!

For Friday Night Who TONIGHT on Halloween, we get our Cyberman on, with the first four parts of  “The Invasion” with Patrick Troughton.

Which should be the perfect lead in to this week’s TTV #201 to discuss “Dark Water”.

FNW 11/7 – “The Invasion” Part 5-8

To finish off Capaldi’s first season, TTV #202 takes a look at “Death In Heaven”.

Colin Baker returns to FNW on 11/14 in “Timelash”.

And a special treat for Traveling The Vortex #203. It’s a Companion Archive! Who for? Why everybody’s favorite shapeshifting Penguin, Frobisher! We’ll be discussing Big Finish #14 “The Holy Terror” and the Big Finish Special episode “The Maltese Penguin”.

FNW 11/21 is “Paradise Towers” with 7th Doctor Sylvester McCoy.

TTV #204 will have our reviews of “Paradise Towers”, and Big Finish Audio #46 “Flip Flop”.

Thanksgiving weekend brings us  Chicago Tardis! And while we still have yet to manage to organize plans to get the three of us up there (We’re working on it) we ARE watching “The Robots Of Death” for Friday Night Who this week.

Episode #205 is full of Fun and Games. We will have YOUR reports from Chicago Tardis (if anyone is going, PLEASE let us know!) We’ll touch on Titan Comic’s 12th Doctor Premier issue, and spend the rest of the time discussing the Doctor Who tie-ins: Risk & Yahtzee. Oh, and a special treat (if all goes well) from the folks over at Tiny Rebel Games in regards to Doctor Who Legacy.

FNW 12/5 – “Black Orchid”

TTV #206 – and a pair of Peter Davison audios Big Finish #41 “Nekromanteia”, and #56 “The Axis Of Insanity”.

I’m really looking forward to returning to this Jon Pertwee story for Friday Night Who on 12/12, “Frontier In Space”. It’s a long one, so we’ll do the first three parts. 1-3

TTV #207 – We’ll touch base with Titan Comic’s 10th and 11th Doctors story arcs, and revisit Paul McGann’s Eighth Doctor and Charlie Pollard in Big Finish Audio #103 “The Girl Who Never Was”.

FNW 12/19 – “Frontier In Space” Part 4-6.

Earlier this year we started reviewing last year’s 50th Anniversary E Book Series, and got a little side tracked once series 8 came on.  Time to rectify that in Traveling The Vortex #208, as we’ll review the final four books in the series: E Book 9: “The Beast Of Babylon”, E Book 10: “The Mystery Of The Haunted Cottage”, E Book 11: “Nothing O’Clock”, E Book 12: “Lights Out”.

Our last FNW in December (12/26) is the David Tennant Christmas special “The Next Doctor”.

And our last show of 2014, TTV #209 will cover all the glory that is this years (still untitled as of this posting) Peter Capaldi Christmas Special.

Which takes us all the way up to 2015. Without sounding the spoiler horn, I can only say the new year holds a lot of potential so far. More details to come!

The stretching is over…we have it on good authority (and official BBC released photos) that “The Invasion” is a great choice for Friday Night Who as we near the end for Series 8.

TTVpngIt has arrived. We have reached our 200th show. It seems like only yesterday that we began this quest.

This week’s podcast includes some celebrating of the momentous occasion.

But there is still business at hand. So, we share our impressions of In the Forest of the Night.

Also, some news of the week.

Oh, and we’ve gone into the prize vault for some give-away goodies, so be sure to listen how you can enter.

And, of course, your feedback.


Continuing to stretch to make our Friday Night Who episodes fit into Series 8…since the next episode deals with trees…we decided to watch a story with tree people! That’s right, “The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe” returns!

TTV-Logo-1400-150x150In this week’s show, we review the latest offering from Series 8, Flatline. We give our impressions of the story as we near the end of this season and forge ahead toward our 200th episode.

But first, Shaun regales us with an entertaining story of his cross country trip this week, coupled with a few things that Keith and I catch up on.

Also, as always, we’ll discuss the latest in Doctor Who news, including some details on the extras to be released on this season’s box set.

And, of course, your feedback.


This week’s Friday Night Who might also be a bit of a stretch…but what the heck?! We’re watching the 3rd Doctor story “Carnival of Monsters”!

TTV-Logo-1400-150x150We climb aboard that space faring train known as The Orient Express, to review this week’s offering in Series 8, Mummy on the Orient Express.

We’ll give our impressions on this week’s program, as well as some of the things we’ve taken away from this season thus far.

Also, we’ll have a look at the news of the week, including an interesting tie-in to a current member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

And, of course, your feedback.


Lisa’s video reference in this week’s feedback: River Song Confidential

Mummies on Doctor Who?! That means we’re doing “Pyramids of Mars” for Friday Night Who this week!

TTV-Logo-1400-150x150Doctor: The moon isn’t breaking apart, the moon is hatching.
Clara: Huh?
Doctor: The moon’s an egg.
Courtney: Is it a chicken?
Doctor: No!
Courtney: Because for a chicken to have laid an egg that …
Doctor: Courtney, don’t spoil the moment!

In this week’s podcast we ask that very question, among many other silly quandaries. Also, we give our impressions on the game changing episode, Kill the Moon.

But, before that, we take a look at the news circulating our favorite program, as well as more guest announcements for Gally.

And, of course, your feedback.


This month’s Doctor Who Book Club – Traveling the Vortex selection

If rumor and speculation are true this week’s series 8 episode has scenes that were filmed in Lanzarote, so we thought it was only fitting we watch the other story filmed there “Planet of Fire”
