Episode 148 – Eerily Spooky

ttv 1400 anniIn this week’s show we have a Halloween treat. We review the Doctor Who novel, Forever Autumn by Mark Morris, featuring the Tenth Doctor and Martha.  It truly is an eerily spooky fun time.

Plus, another Tenth Doctor adventure, this time with Donna. This time Doctor Who: Destiny of the Doctor 10: Death’s Deal, and audio read and performed by Catherine Tate, and written by Darren Jones.

Also, a look back at this week’s news including the recent announcement that Doctor Who – The Day of the Doctor will be showing across the U.S. including our hometown of Topeka, Kansas.

And, of course, your feedback.


Episode 51 – Cook! Where’s My Hossenfeffer Key?

This week, we finish up Series Four with the fan extravaganza that is The Stolen Earth, and Journey’s End. We bid a sad goodbye to Donna’s time with the Doctor.

Also, we discuss the news about the departure of Amy and Rory.

And of course, your feedback.

Cook! Cook! Where’s My Hossenfeffer!

Episode 49 – The Midnight Special

One day late due to some technical issues (Glenn’s editing computer decided to crash on him mid show) but here is finally is.

A little less heated this weeks as we discuss the very first appearance of River Song in Silence in the Library and Forest of the Dead. Then on to the companion lite story, Midnight, followed by a Doctor lite one, Turn Left.

Also a Chicago TARDIS report (x2) from Dr. Phil, and of course, your feedback.


Episode 47 – A Dent in the 80’s

In this week’s episode, we revisit The Tenth Doctor and Donna, as they travel to the Planet of the Ood. Then joined by Martha and UNIT as they try to unravel the mystery of The Sontaran Stratagem and The Poison Sky.

Also, we’ll add fuel to the speculation fires as we remark on our hopes, wants, and predictions for a Doctor Who Movie with director David Yates at the helm.

And, of course, your feedback. Enjoy!

Vortex Event Horizons: The Doctor and Donna and Daleks, Oh My!

Coming up on the Vortex horizon…

Three weeks of Daleks coming up on Friday Night Who! This week’s post Thanksgiving slot (11/25 will be the 5th Doctor entry,”Resurrection Of The Daleks” (especially apt since this week also marks Chicago Tardis, staring none other than Peter Davison.  The following week 12/2 is 6th Doctor Colin Baker’s outing “Revelation Of The Daleks”.  And that means the masterpiece “Remembrance Of The Daleks” starring 7th Doctor Sylvester McCoy is on 12/9.

On the show front, next week’s episode #48 has us hitting the highlights of Chicago Tardis (still time to let us know if you are going and would like to act as a correspondent!) and reviews of fourth season episodes “The Doctor’s Daughter” and “The Unicorn And The Wasp”.  Number 49 contains our reviews of “Midnight” and “Turn Left”, along with a recap of two we’ve already done, the River Song introductory stories “Silence In The Library” and “Forrest Of The Dead”.  We figured it was important for Donna’s character development for Keith to revisit these in order, not to mention we can hunt for all the hidden nuggets Moffat was sure to have planted early for River.  And the BIG 5-0 episode is an Adversary Archive on the Daleks (and a certain megalomaniac) as we go back and cover the Friday Night Who’s of the last three weeks.

After that, we set up our exit strategy for season four and the end of the year.  Expect some holiday cheer, Paul McGann and our first BIG FINISH reviews!

We’re headed back to the Tenth Doctor era and the start of Series Four. It also marks the comeback of Donna Noble. This week, our reviews of Voyage of the Damned, Partners in Crime and The Fires of Pompeii. Big news on the Matt Smith front *wink* and of course your feedback. Enjoy!

Episode 26 – The Vortex Code

Sorry for the delay, the delivery guy showed up late with the files necessary to put together a show. I bet some of you were shouting at your iTunes feed “Them Vortex Boys didn’t really get this thing fixed!” Better late than never though, I always say. And I say it a lot because I am always late.

Anywho! This weeks episode we review more Tenth Doctor episodes, starting with the Christmas special, The Runaway Bride. Then on to the beginning of Martha Jones tenure as the companion with Smith and Jones, The Shakespeare Code, and Gridlock.
