Episode 220 – The Two Amys

TTV-Logo-1400-150x150

We are fresh back from all of the weekend excitement of Planet Comicon in Kansas City, Missouri.  Hear a recap of our experience at this wonderful convention on this week’s show.

Also, we had a chance to host a panel at the convention featuring Caitlin Blackwood, the actress who played young Amelia Pond on Doctor Who. And if you listen closely, you might recognize a surprise guest to the panel as well.

With us out of the loop this week, we have no news to report and react to, but be assured, we will be playing catch-up for next week.

And, of course…er.. well… there was no feedback either, so, never mind.

Enjoy!

Friday Night Who 3/13

Since Karen Gillian &  Caitlin Blackwood will be in Kansas City this weekend for Planet Comicon we figured we should watch an Amy story.

“Pond Life” Mini Prequel Announced

The BBC has revealed five Doctor Who mini-adventures will be released online next week ahead of the new series.  Last season we got five “Night And The Doctor” minisodes that showed us life in the Tardis between the televised adventures.  This season they’ll act as a prequel to season seven.

According to CultBox.com:

Available on the official Doctor Who website and the BBC’s YouTube Channel, “Pond Life” is written by Chris Chibnall and will feature Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill, plus “some unexpected surprises”.

Says Chibnall: “Pond Life provides us with a lovely opportunity to catch-up with Amy and Rory since we saw them at the end of the last series. It opens with the Ponds at home and gives us an insight in to just what happens when the Doctor drops in and out of their lives. Travelling with the Doctor is one of the greatest things you can do, but it’s fun to spend a few moments looking at the chaos he can also bring.”

The first episode of Pond Life will be available to watch at noon on Monday August 27th, with new instalments released each day until Friday, August  31st.

More details can be found here.

Friday Night Who 6/1

For this week’s Friday Night Who we return to “new” series and our second 11th Doctor story, the Eleventh Hour!

Hopefully you can join us at Midnight CDT, who knows maybe we’ll break out fish fingers and custard.

Follow @travelvortex, @vortexshaun & @vortexkeith (maybe @vortexglenn) for the fun and keep an eye out for the #FridayNightWho and #TheEleventhHour hashtags!

 

Keith & Shaun’s Doctor Who Shrine

As Chrissy pointed out we spent a lot of time in episode 42 of Traveling the Vortex talking about the new Doctor Who acquisitions and we should post pictures of them. Well as we promised in Episode 43 here they are! First up is the entire “shrine”

We also have a nice collection of Doctors with a TARDIS bank

And how can you have Doctors without their adversaries?

Then the adorable Character Building Mini Figures Cybermen and Amy Pond.

And to wrap up this long post pictures of the new action figure additions (Silence, 11th Doctor with Stetson, and Nephew) and a picture that I got while in Omaha for Contagion Outbreak.

Episode 42 – Life, the Universe, and Steven Moffat

Series Six is “in the can”, as they say, and now a chance to fondly look back over the Matt Smith/Steven Moffat era thus far.

In this episode we review the last two years and take an over all look at Series Five and Six as a whole, and the state of Doctor Who with Moffat at the helm.

Also, a Galley and Chicago Tardis update, news, and of course your feedback.

Enjoy!

Plus, another finale as well for The Key To Time series with The Armageddon Factor.

Also, news about the end of Doctor Who Confidential, and of course your feedback.

“You can checkout any time you like,
But you can never leave!”

This week we “check in” to the latest episode of Series Six with a review of The God Complex. But, before that, it’s medieval sword play, colorful costumes, and robot impostors, oh… and our review of The Androids of Tara, the fourth part to the Key to Time series.

And as usual, news and your feedback. Enjoy!

Mentioned in this weeks show:

Star Wars on Blu Ray

Hoo on Who

Episode 37 – New and Improved!

Here we are this week, and as the title suggests, we are new and improved. Or, perhaps we should just say cleaner and clearer?

This week we continue our review of the Key to Time series with The Stones of Blood. Then the most recent installment of series six with The Girl Who Waited. Hopefully you won’t have to.

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.
