Episode 25 – Silver Nemesis II – Electric Boogaloo

Wow! Twenty-five weeks have gone so fast for us here at Traveling the Vortex. And to mark the occasion, we threw a little party! It was a small intimate affair. Just a few close friends. Oh, and the Myrka.

Anyway, this week we discuss the confusion and over-speculation that is the “No full season in 2012” rumor.

Also, we finish reviewing Series 2 with – Fear Her, Army of Ghosts, and Doomsday.

And finally all of the wonderful feedback that we have received this week from our wonderful listeners.

Enjoy!

NO Full Series In 2012?

The following comes directly from Anglotopia.net:
June 14, 2011 By jonathan

There were rumors last week that Doctor Who would not be returning in 2012 for a full series and would probably have a series of specials as they did with David Tennant.  That rumor was quickly quashed by the BBC who immediately announced that they had renewed Doctor Who for 14 episodes (a full season and a Christmas Special).

Well, today the plot thickened.

According to many sources now – the BBC’s Danny Cohen stated that there won’t be a full series airing in 2012 but that they’d be saving some episodes for a special run in 2013 to mark the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who.  We’re not really sure what to make of this news yet – the BBC really needs to release more details on what they’re planning here. They made a big deal about renewing for 14 episodes but won’t be in any particular hurry to air them.

My speculation is that we have the rest of series 6 this fall, followed by a Christmas special. Then I bet we’ll get an Easter special and series 7 will start in fall 2012 and then finish off in Spring 2013.

Whatever happens, we should cherish our new episodes of Doctor Who as they’re going to get increasingly sparse after this year.

Episode 24 – I Was Molested By a Fan Girl in Omaha

Not as long winded this week, another episode is in the can and posted to the feed.

In this one, we head back to the Tenth Doctor’s era and review The Idiot’s Lantern, The Impossible Planet, The Satan Pit, and everyone’s favorite – Love and Monsters.

A long bit of insightful feedback, and Keith tells us about his trip to Contagion: Outbreak – Omaha’s Premiere Pop-Culture Expo and Convention.

Oh, and I should mention, we are much more upbeat and positive in this weeks podcast. Sorry, about last week, I don’t know what happened to our energy.

Eccleston Says He Won’t Return To Doctor Who

As reported by Digital Journal, Christopher Eccleston has confirmed that he won’t be making a return to Doctor Who.

Eccleston talks to Graham Norton

Eccleston played the Ninth Doctor in the BBC’s long-running science-fiction drama series when it returned to TV screens in 2005.  However, he left the series after only 13 episodes, handing over the role to David Tennant. Speaking to Graham Norton this morning, the 47-year-old actor said he was very pleased to have been a part of Doctor Who, “I’m very proud of what we did over those 13 episodes. My intention was to make the show a success so that the next series could follow, so I’d done what I wanted to do.”

However, when Norton hinted about a possible multi-doctor story for 2013’s 50th Anniversary and asked if Eccleston would return to the series, he said: “No, never bathe in the same river twice.”
