Episode 168 – We Lost the Doctor

TTV Logo 1400A long one this week, but with the crammed packed weekend of this year’s Planet Comicon in Kansas City, we had a lot to talk about.

We’ll discuss all the Doctor Who related events that went on this weekend, as well as much of the other sci-fi and pop culture programming that make the con a joy and success.

And, some really cool surprises that we were involve with in Sunday’s “Trektacular” panel involving the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Plus, we’ll discuss some of the news of the week.

AND the launch of the Traveling the Vortex Book Club on Goodreads.com.

And, of course, your feedback.

Friday Night Who 3/14



Friday Night Whoers might be on your own this week…as we prepare for Kansas City’s Planet Comicon featuring the one and only Sylvester McCoy!

So for Friday Night Who this week we are watching what is considered to be his seminal story on the show (no…not Ghostlight like Keith wanted) but Remembrance of the Daleks!

@VortexGlenn, @VortexShaun & @VortexKeith aren’t sure if they will make it, but hop on twitter in their stead at Midnight CDT for the tweet along!

As always don’t forget the hashtags! #FridayNightWho #RemembranceoftheDaleks

Schedule, Beware The Ides Of March!

A short scheduling update this week, as we wanted to give you heads up on a couple of audios coming up!

This week’s Friday Night Who (2/28) is the long awaited, recently released Patrick Troughton second Doctor story “The Moonbase”

Our show (TTV #166) will include reviews of “The Moonbase” as well as the second E Book from the 50th Anniversary series, “The Nameless City”.

FNW on 3/7 is Planet Of The Ood with tenth Doctor, David Tennant.

A pair of big finish audios for TTV #167, both main line stories: #37 The Sandman featuring sixth Doctor Colin Baker and Evelyn, and #39 Bang-Bang-a-Boom with seventh Doctor Sylvester McCoy.

We’re concocting something special for Friday Night Who the week of 3/14 (In fact, it may not even happen on Friday).  Suffice to say we are attempting to involve Kansas City Planet Comicon guest Sylvester McCoy to join us in some way, shape or form.  We’ll try and keep you updated as best we can. Right now it looks like it will either be “Remembrance Of The Daleks” OR “The Happiness Patrol” for the story that week.  Trust us, there’s a method at work here.  Madness too.  But a method nonetheless.

And episode #168 will be a full breakdown of our experiences at Kansas City Planet Comicon for our listeners.

More to come as we get things finalized!

The Schedule Games

As promised, here’s the upcoming schedule for those of you who like to follow along at home…

Friday Night Who on 1/31 is the Christopher Eccleston two parter, “Aliens In London” / “World War III”.

Saturday February first at 10pm is a special Flicks With Friends. Join us for the original Planet Of The Apes.

TTV #162  has our reviews of the next two Paul McGann Big Finish stories #75 “Scaredy Cat” and #77 “Other Lives”.

FNW 2/7 is 7th Doctor (and recent addition to the Kanas City Planet Comicon guest list) Sylvester McCoy in “Survival”.

Fun and Games are on the docket for TTV #163 as we talk about Doctor Who Legacy, Doctor Who Monopoly, and the Doctor Who Card Game.

A romantic Friday Night Who for Valentine’s Day celebrates the secret love the Doctor and the Rani share.  Or is it the clandestine threesome with the Master?  Whatever. We’re celebrating Colin Baker being at Gally, so on 2/14 it’s “The Mark Of The Rani”.

Keith and Glenn will tackle some book reviews on TTV #164:  Keith is reading the third Doctor story Harvest Of Time by Alistair Reynolds while Glenn tackles the tenth Doctor story The Resurrection Casket by Justin Richards.  And while Shaun will be recovering from Gally and enjoying the So Cal Sunshine, he’s committed to trying to read Spiral Scratch by Gary Russell, featuring the sixth Doctor.

Peter Davison (and Adric) returns to FNW on 2/21 for “Earthshock”.

Now of course we’ll have all the updates and side trips from Gally as the weekend progresses, but the full blown story of the 25 Years Of Galifrey One will unfold in episode #165.

And a real treat for Friday Night Who on 2/28 as we watch Patrick Troughton in the soon-to-be-just released in North America  “The Moonbase” with completed animation segments!

and for Traveling The Vortex #166 we’ll review “The Moonbase” along with the second in last year’s 50th anniversary E Books, “The Nameless City”.

More goodies on tap for March, including all the awesomeness that is sure to be Kansas City Planet Comicion.  Stay tuned!
