Tag Archive: Frontier In Space
This week’s Friday Night Who marks the return of Jon Pertwee and the Draconians to our line up with parts 1-3 of “Frontier in Space”
And as promised on last week’s podcast, here’s the schedule to finish out the wild ride that has been 2014!
For Friday Night Who TONIGHT on Halloween, we get our Cyberman on, with the first four parts of “The Invasion” with Patrick Troughton.
Which should be the perfect lead in to this week’s TTV #201 to discuss “Dark Water”.
FNW 11/7 – “The Invasion” Part 5-8
To finish off Capaldi’s first season, TTV #202 takes a look at “Death In Heaven”.
Colin Baker returns to FNW on 11/14 in “Timelash”.
And a special treat for Traveling The Vortex #203. It’s a Companion Archive! Who for? Why everybody’s favorite shapeshifting Penguin, Frobisher! We’ll be discussing Big Finish #14 “The Holy Terror” and the Big Finish Special episode “The Maltese Penguin”.
FNW 11/21 is “Paradise Towers” with 7th Doctor Sylvester McCoy.
EDIT – As Glenn mentioned on the show last week and this, we are adding a few comic elements to the episode in order to do a “mini” adversary archive for the Quarks. If you can find them, you may wish to consult these for additional reference:
(Invasion of the Quarks, The Killer Wasps, The Jungle Of Doom, Martha The Mechanical Housemaid, The Duelist, Death Race, The Fires Down Below, Happy Deathday)
TTV #204 will have our reviews of “Paradise Towers”, and Big Finish Audio #46 “Flip Flop”.
Thanksgiving weekend brings us Chicago Tardis! And while we still have yet to manage to organize plans to get the three of us up there (We’re working on it) we ARE watching “The Robots Of Death” for Friday Night Who this week.
Episode #205 is full of Fun and Games. We will have YOUR reports from Chicago Tardis (if anyone is going, PLEASE let us know!) We’ll touch on Titan Comic’s 12th Doctor Premier issue, and spend the rest of the time discussing the Doctor Who tie-ins: Risk & Yahtzee. Oh, and a special treat (if all goes well) from the folks over at Tiny Rebel Games in regards to Doctor Who Legacy.
FNW 12/5 – “Black Orchid”
TTV #206 – and a pair of Peter Davison audios Big Finish #41 “Nekromanteia”, and #56 “The Axis Of Insanity”.
I’m really looking forward to returning to this Jon Pertwee story for Friday Night Who on 12/12, “Frontier In Space”. It’s a long one, so we’ll do the first three parts. 1-3
TTV #207 – We’ll touch base with Titan Comic’s 10th and 11th Doctors story arcs, and revisit Paul McGann’s Eighth Doctor and Charlie Pollard in Big Finish Audio #103 “The Girl Who Never Was”.
FNW 12/19 – “Frontier In Space” Part 4-6.
Earlier this year we started reviewing last year’s 50th Anniversary E Book Series, and got a little side tracked once series 8 came on. Time to rectify that in Traveling The Vortex #208, as we’ll review the final four books in the series: E Book 9: “The Beast Of Babylon”, E Book 10: “The Mystery Of The Haunted Cottage”, E Book 11: “Nothing O’Clock”, E Book 12: “Lights Out”.
Our last FNW in December (12/26) is the David Tennant Christmas special “The Next Doctor”.
And our last show of 2014, TTV #209 will cover all the glory that is this years (still untitled as of this posting) Peter Capaldi Christmas Special.
Which takes us all the way up to 2015. Without sounding the spoiler horn, I can only say the new year holds a lot of potential so far. More details to come!
Here it is, the latest episode of Traveling the Vortex. This week, another Adversary Archive featuring the Doctor’s greatest enemy – The Daleks. We look at the Dalek War box set featuring Frontier in Space and Planet of the Daleks starring the Third Doctor and Jo Grant. then we travel forward and review the Big Finish audio The Genocide Machine featuring the Seventh Doctor and Ace.
Plus this week’s news (with a surprise guest anchor) and of course your feed back.
And here’s the lioness trying to eat a baby video mentioned in the podcast…http://youtu.be/RkpEqAeJtQM

TTV #79 covers “The Android Invasion” and the BBC Radio drama: “Torchwood: Lost Souls”.
And our first Friday Night Who of June ( 7/6) is the awesome series one two parter “The Doctor Dances / The Empty Child” with Christopher Eccleston.
Wait! …what was that? Did you say TORCHWOOD was on the schedule again? Can that mean? Yep. It’s time to subject Keith to the glory of “Torchwood: Children Of Earth” which we’ll cover in episode 80.
