Friday Night Who 7/24

Now the real reason we did “Ghost Light” last week becomes clear…we’re watching something in order! Now it’s time for the next part of the “Ace Trilogy” “The Curse of Fenric”!


Join @TravelVortex, @VortexShaun, @VortexGlenn & @VortexKeith as we press play at Midnight CDT!

And as always keep an eye out for the hashtags #FridayNightWho & #TheCurseofFenric

Episode 238 – Scattershot

TTV LOGO NEWIn this week’s podcast we examine two Big Finish Productions exports. First it’s the Fifth Doctor, Erimen, and Peri as they land in Tibet for cricket and adventure The Roof of the World. Then our three heroes embark on a space adventure in the story, Three’s a Crowd.

We also, chat about the news of the week.

And of course, your feedback.


Scheduling whoops!

Apologies for the late notice, but there has been a change to our schedule for NEXT WEEK. Here’s the skinny….

FNW 7/24 is “The Curse Of Fenric” (and much easier to get ahold of via Netflix, although this one too is out of print on DVD.)

Traveling The Vortex #239 has our review of “The Curse Of Fenric”, and Big Finish #58 “Harvest”.

* CORRECTION Originally this read Big Finish #67 “Dreamtime”. Shaun skipped ahead, and it wasn’t until just now that Keith caught it. The actual review will be over #58 “Harvest”. Sorry for the confusion and late notice!

We’ll finish out July on 7/31 with “Survival” for Friday Night Who.

And then the culmination! TTV #240 is a Companion Archive – Dorothy Gale McShane and The Ace Trilogy: “Ghost Light”, “The Curse Of Fenric”, “Survival”.

Ol’ Sixie graces FNW on 8/7 in “Attack Of The Cybermen”.

And graces our podcast #241, wherein we’ll discuss Kansas City ComicCon (KCCC) featuring… you guessed it, Colin Baker!

Jump back to New Who for Friday Night Who on 8/14 with “Partners In Crime”.

And then a special TTV #242 to celebrate Titan Doctor Who Comics Day!

Episode 237 – The Technological Neanderthal Strikes, Again!

TTV-Logo-1400-150x150Late, as usual, but it will be worth it this week, as Keith and Shaun have returned and are refreshed from this year’s BritishFest in Council Bluffs, Iowa.  The two will regale you with their adventures and experiences and share stories about their panel with actor Simon Fisher-Becker, the man who plays Dorium Maldovar in Doctor Who.

Plus, there is lots of news to report, especially on the heels of this year’s San Diego Comic Con.

And, of course, your feedback.


Saturday Night Who!


There is no Friday Night Who tonight, that’s because we are doing another “live” edition of Friday Night Who tomorrow while Shaun & Keith are at BritishFest in Omaha NE/Council Bluffs, IA!

Join us as we tweet along to “A Good Man Goes To War” on July 11th at 10:00 PM

We’ll still use the hashtag #FridayNightWho  to keep things consistent.

As always follow @TravelVortex, @VortexShaun, @VortexGlenn & @VortexKeith for all the fun, and don’t forget the hashtag #AGoodManGoestoWar

Episode 236 – Great Intelligence Quotient

TTV-Logo-1400-150x150In this week’s episode, we take a look at the novel, “Lethbridge-Stewart: The Forgotten Son”.  Taking place after the events of The Web of Fear, we find Colonel Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart having to once again deal with the Great Intelligence and its Yeti minions.  We give our impressions of this recently released novel from Candy Jar Books in a new line of stories featuring the man who would become the Brig.

Also, our reaction to news this week hinting at set-up events to Series 9

Plus, Shaun regales us with stories of his trip to Kansas City for Weird Al Yankovic’s Mandatory Fun tour concert.

And, of course, you feedback.


British Fest This Weekend! 7/10 -7/12

1432662010181Our friend Moose is putting on Second Britishfest in Omaha, Nebraska / Council Bluffs, Iowa on July 10-12 and Keith and Shaun will be there representing Traveling The Vortex on Saturday & Sunday.

Not only can you come see us, but friend of the show Simon Fisher-Becker (Dorium Moldavar), a full blown 4th Doctor Tardis console, Patrick Troughton look-a-like and 2nd Doctor impersonator Bill Breuer, The Timey Wimey Puppet Show, a whole heap of Daleks, and of course, all things British.

We’ll be hosting a live version of Friday Night Who at the con, but WITH A TWIST! It will actually happen on Saturday, at 10pm instead of Friday night at midnight. We are watching “A Good Man Goes To War” in honor/celebration of Simon being at the con, and who knows, he might just stop in for some insights of his own…
