Tag Archive: 300 Epiversary
Time Eddy II weekend is upon us! So here’s an update on things to come.
What better way to celebrate the fifth Doctor Peter Davison’s appearance at Time Eddy than to watch “The Five Doctors” for our Friday Night Who selection that weekend on 10-14?
Well, actually, there is a better way to celebrate his appearance at Time Eddy II. With a Stuffed-to-the-gills celebration of our 300 episode recounting our con adventures and MANY surprises.
Friday Night Who on 10/21 is “The Caretaker” with Peter Capaldi
TTV #301 is a Companion Archive, with a twist. We’ll be discussing Coal Hill School! Talking the Class premiere, and reviewing the comic The Monsters Of Coal Hill, and the short story Nothing at the End of the Lane.
Did you know this October marks the 50th Anniversary of the Cybermen? Well it does. So our Halloween offering this year for FNW on 10/28 is their first appearance, “The Tenth Planet” with first Doctor William Hartnell
TTV #302 – Silver & Gold: The Cybermen Turn 50. Look for plenty of squee from Keith AND Adversary Archive: The Cybermen IV! We’ll take a look at Big Finish mainline stories #86 “The Reaping” and #87 “The Gathering”.
FNW 11/4 – “Inferno” Parts 1-4 finishes off a year of Liz Shaw for us. (Did you notice all our third doctor FNW selections this year featured Liz? Neither did we. But once we did notice, we had to include her swan song.)
And since we’e on the subject of Liz Shaw, how about a Companion Archive? We’ll talk about her career and review Big Finish Companion Chronicle Season 1 #3, “The Blue Tooth”.
We’ll finish off “Inferno” with Parts 5-7 on 11/11 for FNW.
Which should set us up nicely for episode #304 where we’ll take a look at the Candy Jar short stories featured in The Havoc Files 2.
FINALLY! AFTER MONTHS OF SPECULATION, IT IS OUT, AVAILABLE AND WILL BE WATCHED! FNW 11/18 is the newly animated “The Power of the Daleks” Part 1-3!
A brief interlude to the fourth Doctor’s era in TTV #305 we’ll review the just concluded Titan Comics 4th Doctor Mini-Series, and Big Finish 4th Doctor Adventures season 2 #4 “The Justice Of Jalxar”.
FNW 11/25 will finish “The Power of the Daleks” with Parts 4-6.
TTV #306 will have our thoughts on this Lost in Time adventure “The Power of the Daleks” with looks at both the animated recon and the Novel. (Though not really Lost any more, but we’ll talk more about that on the cast!)
Friday Night Who on 12/2 is Tom Baker in “Meglos”.
And we’ll discuss the story “Meglos” in TTV #307.
Beyond that? One Word…
It was with a mixture of shocked surprise and gratitude that when compiling the next pieces of the schedule we realized we were coming up on the big 300th episode here at Traveling The Vortex. As always, we remain hopefully humble and slightly bemused that people are still listening, and seem to like what we’re doing, so again, we thank you! Keeping in that spirit, we wanted to do something a little special for the “epiversary” (even if it meant bending the rules just a little bit). So lets dive into the upcoming madness…
Our weekly Doctor Who watch party Friday Night Who continues on 8/19 with the David Tennant episode “Gridlock”. A reminder everyone is welcome to join in on Twitter, look for the #FridayNightWho hashtags, we push play at midnight.
Episode #295 of the podcast is both An Adversary Archive on The Macra, AND a Lost In Time discussion of The Macra Terror, which sadly no longer exists. We’ll be revieiwng the telesnap recon and the novelization of this Patrick Troughton story.
FNW 8/26 is “Heaven Sent” staring Peter Capaldi.
Which should set us up nicely for our final Beyond The Doctor discussion of the year, We’ll talk Peter Capalid and his performance In The Loop for TTV #296.
A change in what was scheduled before, as FNW on 9/2 is now “The Silurians” (Or Doctor Who and the Silurians, if we must.) This is a long one, so we’ll split it up and do the first four parts this week.
No show this week, but we don’t want to leave you high and dry, so instead we’ll bring you some fun courtesy of Candy Jar Books and Lethbridge-Stewart: The Showstoppers author Jonathan Cooper.
FNW 9/9 finishes off “The Silurians” with parts 5-7.
TTV #297 is a Book Review, we’ll give our thoughts on Candy Jar Book’s Lethbridge-Stewart: The Grandfather Infestation by John Peel and the next short story The Playing Dead by Adrian Sherlock.
Top Gon headline guest Spencer Wilding stars alongside Matt Smith in “The God Complex” for Friday Night Who on 9/16.
And we’ll bring you all the fun from Topeka’s own Top Con this week.
FNW 9/23 is “The Keys Of Marinus” featuring first Doctor William Hartnell. Again, a long one, so parts 1-3 this week.
TTV #298 will have our look at Titan Comics 10th Doctor issues from “season 2”, #2.1 – #2.5, and Big Finish #67 “Dreamtime”.
We’ll finish off “The Keys Of Marinus” with parts 4-6 for FNW on 9/30.
TTV #299 continues season 2 of Titan Comics 10th Doctor comics with issues #2.6 – #2.10 and Big Finish main range story #100 which happens to be called, “100”.
Christopher Eccelson returns to the proceedings for Friday Night Who on 10/7 with “The Long Game”.
A special, TOP SECRET Side Trip #24 fills in the gap for us this week… What could it be?
What on earth could we do for the Friday Night Who (on 10/14) for our 300th Epiversary? Why, Peter Davison’s “The Five Doctors” of course!
And then, the main event itself, Traveling The Vortex #300, which will have all the news fit to print (and some thats not) from Time Eddy II in Wichita. Special Guests! Interviews! Surprises! Flying Monkeys! You DONT want to miss this one!!!
And beyond that? Winter is coming. Which means Christmas is coming. Which means our wilderness year is almost over, and Doctor Who is returning to our screens! Thanks to one and all, stay tuned!
