This Schedule Takes Us Into Darkness

As this is posted it’s Easter Saturday! Also know as August 23rd, the triumphant day that the 12th Doctor in the form of Peter Capaldi makes his fully fledged debut. So you know in Episode 191 we will be discussing Deep Breath and our initial reaction to the newest incarnation.

But you already knew that if you’re a listener to the show. And by deductive logic you also know what the next 12 episodes of the podcast will be about. But what about Friday Night Who? The 3 of us (but mostly Shaun) have scoured the internet (without spoiling ourselves too much) to try our best to match up some previous stories with what’s happening in Series 8. Being as we don’t have official synopsis for all the episodes some may be way off base, but hey we tried. By now if you haven’t already skipped forward to see what’s coming up are wanting to see what we have planned. So without further ado…the Vortex schedule without our reasoning…and WITH episode titles if you find that sort of thing spoilers.

For Friday Night Who on August 29th  we will watch the Sixth Doctor story “Revelation of the Daleks” starring Colin Baker.

For Episode #192 of the podcast we will be discussing the second episode of series 8, “Into the Dalek”.

The first Friday Night Who in September brings us to the Fourth Doctor’s era in the middle of the Key to Time series, with “The Androids of Tara” starring Tom Baker.

The following podcast, episode #193 will have us discussing the 3rd episode of the season, “Robots of Sherwood”.

The 12th of September we will jump forward to the Ninth Doctor’s era with “The Unquiet Dead” staring Christopher Eccelston.

Episode #194 will see us reviewing episode 4….”Listen”.

Friday Night Who for September 19th brings us to a story where we first meet someone else from the Doctor’s home planet in “The Time Meddler” staring the First Doctor William Hartnell.

Episode 5, “Time Heist” of Series 8 brings us to Episode #195 of the podcast.

The last Friday Night Who in September  brings a clash of “new” Who and “classic” Who in the Tenth Doctor story “School Reunion” staring David Tennant and the much loved and missed Elisabeth Sladen on the 26th.

Episode #196 of the podcast will be dedicated to the 6th episode of series 8…”The Caretaker”. Hard to believe we’re now halfway through the season.

We start out October Friday Night Whos with “Planet of Fire” on the 3rd starring Peter Davison as the Fifth Doctor.

The second half of the season starts off with what looks like a bang in an episode titled “Kill the Moon” and we’ll discuss the moral implications of killing a non-sentient hunk of rock (or you know just review it) in episode #197 of the podcast.

The 10th of October brings us our first repeat Doctor for Friday Night Who so far this season with one of Glenn’s favorites “The Pyramids of Mars” starring Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor.

Episode #198 of the podcast has us reviewing episode 8 of the season “Mummy on the Orient Express”

Brittany will be happy that the Third Doctor get’s his go during Friday Night Who on October 17th in “Carnival of Monsters”

And we will discuss episode 9 “Flatline” on podcast #199…holy crap we’re about to hit a milestone!

Matt Smith makes his return to Friday Night Who since we started this season in “The Doctor, the Widow & the Wardrobe” on October 24th.

Let’s hope Episode 10, “In the Forest of the Night” is a good one, because that’s what we’re discussing in our 200th episode of the podcast!!! A Major epiversary!!! Thanks to everyone who’s listened and kept us going to 200 episodes. You all are wonderful people!

Our Halloween Friday Night Who won’t be as scary as it normally would be…but if you don’t own it, the cost could scare your wallet…we start the first 4 episodes of “the Invasion” starring Patrick Troughton as the Second Doctor.

This is it folks…the 2 part season finale! Episode #201 will have us discussing the first part…”Dark Water”.

We start November by finishing up “The Invasion” parts 5-8 on the 7th.

And we end the season on episode #202 discussing “Death in Heaven” and likely the season as a whole.

As for what’s ahead for the end of the year…well you know we have some catching up to do on the Puffin EBooks and whatever else Shaun has up his sleeve.

Friday Night Who 12/27

FireWallpaper

We end 2013 by looking ahead during Friday Night Who.

Join us at Midnight CST as we watch The Fires of Pompeii the previous story featuring the actor incoming as the Doctor, Peter Capaldi.

Folow @TravelVortex, @VortexKeith, @VortexShaun, & @VortexGlenn for this tweet along and keep an eye out for the hashtags #FridayNightWho & #TheFiresofPompeii

Silence Will Fall When The Schedule Is Posted

While the rest of Whoville catches their collective breaths after the 50th, here at Traveling The Vortex, we still have miles to go before we sleep.

First up is a surprise addition to the schedule, our impromptu “Who With Friends” will be doing “The Three Doctors” sometime this week, keep an eye on @VortexKeith twitter feed for details.

Officially, if you’re not all tuckered out from Thanksgiving turkey and Black Friday shopping, Friday Night Who on 11/29 will be “The Five Doctors (Special Edition)”.

Our show this week (TTV #153) covers the audio goodness of Big Finish with a detailed look at “The Light At The End”.

Join us in sending all our love to long ago.  William Hartnell’s swan song “The Tenth Planet” is Friday Night Who 12/6.

That sets up TTV #154 to be Cybermen Archive IV, as we review “The Tenth Planet”, and Big Finish #34 “Spare Parts”.

FNW 12/13 brings us Christopher Eccelston in “The Long Game”.

Which sets up TTV #155 where we’ll cover the ending of IDW Prisoners Of Time comic with a look at issues 11 and 12.  And since December is our month to celebrate the 11th Doctor… (or is it twelfth now? HA! Traveling The Vortex had it right all along!) we’ll discuss Doctor Who Revisited: the 11th Doctor.

Just prior to Christmas, on 12/20 Friday Night Who celebrates with “The Doctor, The Widow & The Wardrobe”.

We continue our 11th Doctor celebrations in TTV #156 with a look at Big Finish “Destiny Of The Doctor: The Time Machine”, and our retrospective 50th Anniversary Discussion over the 11th Doctor Era.

Friday Night Who heralds the arrival of Peter Capaldi on 12/27 with “The Fires Of Pompeii”.

And we round out the year with TTV #157 and our discussion of the 2013 Xmas Special, which if I know Moffat (and I do kids, oh yes, I do) will be called “Silent Night”.

And that brings us up to 2014, and our (gulp) third year of the podcast.  As always we thank you, our listeners and fans for keeping us around, keeping us honest, keeping us humble… and sharing the love.

Goodnight everybody!

What?  You want a hint of next year?  Really?  Do I have to keep doing that sneak peak thing?  I mean it was cute and clever a few times, but you really want more?  (sigh) Okay, okay.  January is still in a state of temporal flux while DVD release dates are hammered out, but you might want to make sure a certain trilogy is in your catalogue, least you be left in E-Space…
