Slight delay in the proceedings this week as Shaun and Glenn took last night to recover from the drive back from their weekend at British Fest. We are working on the audio from our panels to share with you all, and plan to record the new episode tonight, which means there’s still time to get your feedback in on The Lie Of The Land!

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…

You’ve heard us mention our upcoming Con-Season quite a bit on the show, and while none of these shows will be as grand as Planet Comicon, we thought we’d let you all in on our upcoming appearances…
Our 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. More details available at his website: www.britishfest.com
Kansas City Comic Con is August 7-9 at Bartle Hall and features the 6th Doctor, Colin Baker among other distinguished guests. Mel and Shaun are for sure are going down on Sunday, but there is no official Vortex presence at this con this year. So if you see us, give a shout! http://www.kansascity-comiccon.com
Also in Kansas City on Aug 21-23 is Crypticon, featuring our [cough] favorite Master Eric Roberts [cough] from Doctor Who: The Movie. Again, no official presence here since this is primarily a horror con, but Mel and Shaun are going up (for Lance Heinrickson!) http://www.crypticonkansascity.com
Our home grown convention Top Con is here in Topeka, Kansas on September 18-20, and Traveling The Vortex will be present and fully staffed all three days! http://www.topcon.us
Time Eddy is shaping up to be the biggest Doctor Who con in the midwest. It lands in Wichita October 2-4 for it’s first year with a killer line up of guests including actors Colin Baker (6th Doctor), Nicola Bryant (Peri), Katy Manning (Jo Grant), Ellis George (Courtney), Peter Purves (Steven), Deborah Watling (Victoria), Daphne Ashbrook (Grace), and not one but two script editors, Victor Pemberton and Andrew Cartmel. In addition toPatrick Troughton look-a-like and 2nd Doctor impersonator Bill Breuer, we’ll be there all three days as guests and panelists. http://www.kansasdoctorwho.com
Again in Topeka, we are still negotiating our appearance at the Slash And Bash Sci-Fi and Horror Film Festival September 25 & 26, Wizard World Tulsa is in Oklahoma October 23-25, and there’s an outside chance Mel and Shaun will sneak down for a day in an unofficial capacity one of those days, And of course, Chicago Tardis lines up November 27-29, which is once again a goal for the boys, but not set in stone yet. We’ll keep you posted as these cons approach.
Hope to see you at one of these events!
Like sands through the hourglass… No, not going there.
First up, a change in our programing. Originally we were going to do “The Aztecs” for Friday Night Who on 6/26, but that has changed to “The Web Of Fear” (Parts 1-3). More details forthcoming…
TTV #235 is our reviews of two more Paul McGann Big Finish 8th Doctor Adventures, #5 “Phobos” and #6 “No More Lies”.
FNW on 7/3 is the second half of “The Web Of Fear” (Parts 4-6).
And now the reason for the change. To help integrate and interact a bit with our Traveling The Vortex Book Club over on Goodreads, we’re actually going to use episode #236 to review the book selection from the month of June! Lethbridge Stewart: The Forgotten Son by Andy Frankham-Allen.
FNW 7/10 is Matt Smith in “A Good Man Goes To War”.
TTV #237 will be all about our misadventures in Omaha for this year’s British Fest 2015 (featuring friend of the show Simon Fisher-Becker!
Finally, a plan that has been in the works from almost the inception of this podcast! Friday Night Who on 7/17 is “Ghost Light” (Our apologies in advance, as we know this one is NOT readily available to most folk since the DVD is out of print.)
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!
Beyond that? Well, the word on the street is that a certain Time Lord will be gracing our television screens again in some all new adventures for season 9… Easter Saturday can’t come soon enough!
While hammering out some details on our upcoming appearance at British Fest at the end of June, here’s the run up schedule. Once we have some confirmation, I’ll post it up through July.
Friday Night Who on 6/13 is the first three parts of “The Enemy Of The World”.
For show #181 we’ll be covering two Big Finish Audios staring Paul McGann, #83 “Something Inside” and #88 “Memory Lane”.
We’ll conclude “The Enemy Of The World” for Friday Night Who with parts 4-6 on 6/20.
…and then we’ll discuss Patrick Troughton’s dual performance in “The Enemy Of The World” on TTV #182.
The following week is British Fest, so we’ll let you know once we get the details nailed down!
