A month has passed since the official end of tenure, and we thought we’d take a look back at the “Grand Moff” Steven era. We take a retrospective look at Steven Moffat’s time as showrunner on Doctor Who with a look back at Seasons 5-10.
Also, big news from Big Finish with the announcement of more Tenth Doctor stories and a reunion of sorts by the original Torchwood crew.
Titan Comics released a preview of issue 5 for the second year of the 12th Doctor comics. It hits stands on May 11th.
It’s the long-awaited return of a deadly foe, as the Doctor and Clara face a monster that will have you checking your stack of comics for suspicious movement! Dare you continue reading, when every page turn could bring you into MORTAL DANGER?! You have to – you’re the Doctor’s only hope!
It’s book review time for this week’s show. We tackle the Goodreads.com Traveling the Vortex Book Club selection for March, Deep Time by Trevor Baxendale. We share our impressions on the 12th Doctor and Clara story which completes the Glamour Chronicles story arc in the New Adventure series.
Also, a little bit of news on the awards circuit with a nomination for a certain Time Lor…. err.. Lady.
And… wait… this is getting redundant… no feedback again this week? We’ll a Goodreads submitted review will have to do, then.

In this extra Side Trip edition of Traveling the Vortex, give you a little holiday treat, by reviewing a holiday treat from our friends over at Titan Comics. They have released this year a Christmas special of their own with a comic starring the Twelfth Doctor and Clara and featuring a classic villain. We give our impressions on this Yule Tide offering while giving you the special gift of an added bonus episode for you.
Here’s wishing all of our listeners a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
In this week’s show, a short one mind you, we look at the latest Series 9 episode of Doctor Who. This week we will be covering our reviews of Sleep No More. Find out what we thought of the story.
Also, we share our feelings on some recent news of a possible sequel to the Mark Gatiss penned story. Along with new comic news, an injury sustained by Twelfth Doctor actor, Peter Capaldi and news that Doctor Who will be returning to cinemas by the end of the year.
And, of course… oh wait… no feedback this week? Oh, well, on with the show!
In this week’s show we review the next episode in Series 9 with the second part of the two-part Zygon story, The Zygon Inversion. We’ll give our impressions on what some may consider the best story of the season so far. Oops, did I say too much already?
And of course some news rapidly squashing some unnerving rumors that were spread in the tabloids this week concerning Series 10. We give our reactions to both sides of the issue.
Plus, the return of our Doctor Who: Legacy Tip of the Week, with a new one (or perhaps just another subtle reminder) from Shaun on making sure you log in from day to day.
And it’s our Lethbridge-Stewart: Beast of Fang Rock book give-away thanks to our good friends over at Candy Jar Books. Congratulations to our winners!
In this week’s show we step aside for a brief moment to talk a little bit about our Halloween festivities this week.
Then we get down to business and discuss the Halloween broadcast of Series 9 with The Zygon Invasion. We give our impression of this first story in a two-part story arc with lots of surprises and some seriously tense moments.
Also, some good news for the future of the series as well as some exciting announcement out of some of our local and area conventions.
