We are off this week, but never fear, we still have a special treat for your podcast feed. We recently had a chance to speak with Jonathan Cooper, the author of the Lethbridge-Stewart novel, The Showstoppers. You can hear about how Jonathan developed the idea for the story and brought its many character to life.
Our special thanks to Andy Frankham-Allen and Candy Jar Books for helping us come together with Jonathan to discuss the novel.
You can still order The Showstoppers as well as other books in the Lethbridge-Stewart line of books at Candy Jar’s website, here.
Updates and changes galore for your newest home edition of Traveling The Vortex, and a few surprises as well!
Friday Night Who on 7/8 is “Spearhead From Space”.
TTV #289 is All 8th Doctor, as we cover Big Finish 8th Doctor Adventures Season 2: #3 “Brave New Town” and #4 “The Skull Of Sobek”, along with the delayed Titan Comics 8th Doctor mini series #1-5.
The 12th Doctor story Robot Of Sherwood and the Titan Comics we originally had scheduled to review have been postponed for a bit, instead for Friday Night Who on 7/15 is the non-cannonical, alternate universe, cringe at the spelling but still fun “Dr. Who And The Daleks” starring Peter Cushing. This one may be hard to find for some people, so head over to our Amazon link NOW and get yours ordered. It’s available in a two pack which is great, you’ll see why in a minute…
TTV #290 will have our thoughts on “Dr. Who And The Daleks”.
7/22 happens to be the exact 50th Anniversary of the second non-cannonical, alternate universe, cringe at the spelling but still fun “Daleks Invasion Earth: 2150 A.D.” with Peter Cushing, so what better way to celebrate than to watch the film for this week’s Friday Night Who? Aren’t you glad you headed over to our Amazon link when you did to get that two pack we talked about a minute ago?
Well, better go take care of that now. Go on, the link is right there. We’ll wait for you.
Okay, you’re back? Great! On we go…
TTV #291 will of course have our reviews of “Daleks Invasion Earth: 2150 A.D.”
FNW 7/29 is “The Greatest Show In The Galaxy”.
and it’s another book review for Traveling The Vortex episode #292. We’ll be taking a look at Candy Jar Books short story The Band Of Evil by Roger J Simonds & Shaun Russell and Lethbridge-Stewart: The Showstoppers by Jonathan Cooper.
FNW 8/5 is “Mindwarp”.
TTV #293 has some more Titan Comics reviews, these with the 11th Doctor (#2.6 – #2.10) and Big Finish #84 “The Nowhere Place”
Cybermen and dueling Matt Smiths are on the docket for Friday Night Who on 8/12 in the Neil Gaimon penned, “Nightmare In Silver”.
TTV #294 is our look into the acting prowess of the 11th Doctor, It’s Beyond The Doctor: Matt Smith edition. The film is still up for debate, but I’m pushing for Pride & Prejudice & Zombies… We’ll let you know as soon as that one is finalized.
FNW 8/19 is another new series episode with David Tennant in “Gridlock”…
…which sets up an Adversary Archive for The Macra in TTV #295. But we’ll be pulling double duty with this episode, also looking at the Lost In Time story “The Macra Terror”. Sadly NONE of the episodes of this 2nd Doctor tale still exist, so we’ll be reviewing it via the Target Novelization and the Audio Recon from the folks at Loose Cannons.
Beyond that? Top Con and Time Eddy loom on the horizon, along with a certain epiversary. Stay tuned, true believers!
