Friday Night Who 9/25

Friday Night Who returns to Friday Night again this week, with a story that will make sense if you’ve seen the Series 9 Premier “The Magician’s Apprentice”.


That’s right, we’re doing “The Stolen Earth” & “Journey’s End’

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!

Down The Vortex Way Come Christmas

As 2011 winds down, we’re getting all wound up.  This week’s Friday Night Who closes out David Tennant’s series four with the E P I C two part story “The Stolen Earth” and “Journey’s End”, which will be the topic of discussion for episode 51. (And barring any more Doctor Who episodes rescued from the lost and found, should result in a lively, if shorter discussion this week than last week’s behemoth-lurking-as-a-podcast anniversary special.)

The following week is Christmas, and how appropriate that for Friday Night Who (which since we start at midnight on Friday technically means first thing Christmas Eve) we’ll hit the most Christmassy of all Christmas specials with “A Christmas Carol.”  It’s the eleventh Doctor’s first time on FNW, so join us for some fun!  Also, a special note.  We will be doing a “LIVE” recording that night, putting together a special Christmas episode.  40% podcast, 50% audio commentary on the episode, 30% candy canes and all kinds of fun (Wonka math, gotta love it!)  So be sure to join us on Twitter for the Tweet-A-Long and we’ll read your comments out on the podcast.  This is not our normal show, (or part of the podcast line up) just holiday greetings from us to you!

Since we’ve already reviewed “A Christmas Carol” (all the way back in episode 1!) Episode 52 will in fact cover Matt Smith’s NEWEST Christmas special, “The Doctor, The Widow, and the Wardrobe”, as it airs on Christmas day and we’ll be recording Christmas night!

The following week is New Years Eve, and what better way to spend Friday Night Who than with Paul McGann’s eighth Doctor, ushering in the millennium in “Doctor Who: The Movie”?  Again, we’ve already reviewed it, (see episode 7) but its a perfect primer for episode 53, our first foray into the world of Big Finish Audio.  And who better to hold our hand for the transition, than the eighth Doctor?  In true Traveling The Vortex style we plan to skip around their universe a bit too, but we’ll be reviewing the first three McGann stories from the main line; “Storm Warning”, “The Sword Of Orion”, and “The Stones Of Venice” (numbers #16, 17, and 18 in the chronology).  So you’ve got two weeks to listen!

And the new year has plenty of good stuff on tap, including an Adversary Archive on the Ice Warriors, a farewell to David Tennant as we conclude the specials, a full blown look at the Time War, more Big Finish audio, and the return of the Black Guardian. I’ll go into more details later, but for now can only say “Spoilers.”
