Pride And Prejudice And Scheduling


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?

You didn’t?

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!

 

A Schedule By Any Other Name

This schedule update is a big one, so lets get to it!

This week’s Friday Night Who on 3/25 is “Terror Of The Vervoids” with Colin Baker.

TTV #274 will have our reviews of Big Finish main series #68 “Catch-1782”, and a Titan Comics 12th Doctor update with issues #11-15.

The 12th Doctor headlines FNW on 4/1 in “Time Heist”.

TTV #275 sees us take a look at the March TTV Book Club selection Deep Time by Trevor Baxendale.

4/8 Friday Night Who is “The Armageddon Factor” Parts 1-3 with Tom Baker…

…so we can get some Mary Tamm on the cast in TTV #276! Leading off with Titan Comics 11th Doctor (season 2) 2.1 – 2.5 and then Big Finish 4th Doctor Adventures Season 2: #1 “The Auntie Matter.”

FNW 4/15 concludes “The Armageddon Factor” with Parts 4-6.

And more 4th Doctor and Romana in TTV #277. We’ll listen to and review Big Finish 4th Doctor Adventures Season 2: #2 “The Sands of Life”, and #3 “War Against The Laan”.

FNW 4/22 – “End Of The World.”

In TTV #278 we go Beyond The Doctor with Christopher Eccelston in Elizabeth.

Finish out April with Friday Night Who on 4/29 with Jon Pertwee in “Ambassadors Of Death” Part 1-3.

Traveling The Vortex #279 promises to be fun, as we’ll review the Lethbridge-Stewart Shorts: In His Kiss by Sue Hampton, The Enfolded Time by Andy-Frankham Allen and tackle that always fun subject… U.N.I.T. Dating!

FNW 5/6 finishes off “Ambassadors Of Death” Part 4-6.

We don’t have a title yet, but episode #280 of TTV will be our review of the April Selection of the TTV Book Club.

And, as promised, more LOST episodes. Join us for Friday Night Who on 5/13 for William Hartnell in “Galaxy 4” (whats left of it, anyway.) But there are recons! (And if you remember the “hint” we gave out on the show, one of those recons is on “The Aztecs” Special Edition). Time to buy your copy! The Amazon link is just over there >>>>

TTV #281 – Lost In Time: Galaxy 4 Reconstruction

  • Friday Night Who on 5/20 is the “Rings Of Akhaten”
  • Subject To Change!

And our big big weekend comes a little later this year, TTV #282 is all the fun at Kansas City’s Planet Comicion, and The Great Traveling The Vortex Quiz Show!

And if Amazon’s date is to be believed, it finally releases this week! So Friday Night Who on 5/27  is the Patrick Troughton story “The Underwater Menace.”

Which means we’ll be reviewing “The Underwater Menace” in episode #283.

After that? Con season will be fully upon us here in the midwest, so we’ll be busy busy busy. But not too busy for more fun. As always, thanks for joining us on these crazy mis adventures, we’ll see you in the Vortex!

The Magician’s Schedule

Okay, a few bumps in the road later, here is the official Traveling The Vortex schedule for Series 9 (well, most of it)

I played a hunch and it paid off, with the return of Davros in the first episode of the series, it seems only fitting to revisit his last appearance in Doctor Who, so Friday Night Who on 9/25 is the David Tennant two-parter,  “Stolen Earth” / “Journey’s End”.

Our show this week is a full one! TTV #248 will have new from our appearance at Slash And Bash, reviews of the (finally released) Titan Comics: The Four Doctors #5, thanks to Candy Jar Books we’ll bring you a spoiler free review of just released Lethbridge Stewart: The Schizoid Earth by David A. McIntee, and then a very spoiler filled review of Series 9, episode 2 “The Witch’s Familiar”.

The next weekend finds us celebrating in Wichita for Time Eddy, and since both Frazer Hines and Deborah Watling will be on hand, what better Friday Night Who could there be on 10/2 than “Tomb Of The Cybermen”?

TTV #249 will be all about Time Eddy, and our discussing of this week’s new story, “Under The Lake”.

FNW 10/9 is “Warriors Of The Deep” with Peter Davison. (Which probably would have fit better with last week’s story, but we wanted a refresher on some of Deborah’s material.)

TTV #250 Wait… an epiversary?!? In the middle of Series 9?!? ARGH! Well, in addition to our discussion of “Before The Flood” we’ll find some other fun things to discuss too.

Like New Who? Good. Cause David Tennant returns to FNW on 10/16 in “The Fires Of Pompeii”…

…because the new series synopsis hints that in “The Girl Who Died” the Doctor will remember where he’s seen his face. We’ll discuss in TTV #251.

Friday Night Who on 10/23 is Tom Baker in “The Face Of Evil”.

Which hopefully pairs up well with our topic for TTV #252, “The Woman Who Lived”.

FNW 10/30 – “Day Of The Doctor” (yes, again!) should nicely set up

TTV #253 – “The Zygon Invasion”.

And what’s a Zygon invasion without their first appearance? Join us on 11/6 for “Terror Of The Zygons” for Friday Night Who just before

TTV #254 – “The Zygon Inversion”.

Here’s where it gets tricky. FNW 11/13 is “Love & Monsters” to tie in to the unique filming nature of a Doctor light episode…

Which should compliment our topic in Traveling The Vortex episode #255, “Sleep No More”.

FNW 11/20 is another new series affair, last season’s “Flatline”.

Because Rigsy makes a return appearance in “Face The Raven”, the topic of TTV #256.

Beyond that? Well, I’m still hedging my bets on the finale. I have a few ideas, but I’d hate to spoil anyone. We’ll keep you posted!

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.

In space no one can hear you schedule

Sorry for the delay in getting the update out to you, faithful listener, but between New Series Who, 50th Anniversary plans, AND Planet Comicon our new scheduling robot the WHO-9000 has been thrown for quite the loop.  I think we’ve got him reprogramed now, so here’s some upcoming goodies.  (Remember, to make things easy on you with so much going on, the majority of Friday Night Who that is coming up are episodes we’ve already reviewed/watched.)

Our show recording tonight is #120, and we kick off our celebration of the third Doctor era by covering the IDW comic “Prisoners Of Time 3”, as well as have our reviews of BOTH “The Rings Of Akhaten”, and “The Cold War”.

Friday Night Who on 4/19 celebrates third Doctor Jon Pertwee in “The Time Warrior”.

Traveling The Vortex episode #121 finds us discussing the third Doctor Who Revisited special, Big Finish’s “Destiny Of The Doctor: Vengeance Of The Stones”, and new episode “Hide”.

On 4/26 we journey back to the first Doctor William Hartnell and the first TARDIS bound episode, “The Edge Of Destruction” for FNW.

We can’t wait for this week, as TTV #122 includes our  50th Anniversary Discussion of the  3rd Doctor Era, and our reviews of  “Journey To The Centre Of The TARDIS”.

A special treat for @WhovianMich’s birthday on Friday Night Who of 5/3, we’ll be watching her favorite fifth Doctor Peter Davison episode “Enlightenment”.

May starts our celebration of the fourth Doctor, starting with IDW’s Prisoners Of Time 4, and our thoughts on new series’ “The Crimson Horror”.

Some new material hits Friday Night Who on 5/10, with Tom Baker in “Revenge Of The Cybermen”

And then TTV #124 is our Cyberman Archive III with “Revenge Of The Cybermen” and Neil Gaimen’s “Nightmare in Silver” (formerly “The Last Cyberman”).

That should bring us right up to the finale of season 7, and as always, Grand Moff Steven is being tight lipped about it so we’ll wait to schedule that when we know just a bit more than we do now.  Check out our facebook page for the third Doctor poll, and vote on what YOU think is the most iconic episode of his era (that we’ve reviewed).

Now, WHO-9000, can you open the pod bay doors please?

Series Seven Part 2 Scheduling Part 1

Ah. That time of year when you can smell New Who on the air like the coming of Spring, and all my scheduling work goes out the window and has to be cobbled together last minute to take those new episodes into account.  Oh well.

Tonight’s Friday Night Who (3/22) is part of our monthly celebration of the second Doctor, “The Mind Robber”.

Episode #117 of Traveling The Vortex is all things second Doctor, and will include our reviews of “The Mind Robber”, IDW’s comic “Prisoners Of Time 2”, Big Finish: Destiny Of The Doctor 2: Shadows Of Death, our look back over the 2nd Doctor Era for our 50th Anniversary Discussion, and, if Keith gets it read in time, his review of the book “The Moonbase”

Friday Night Who on 3/29 gears us up for the new season by revisiting Matt Smith in “The Impossible Astronaut” and “Day Of The Moon”…

…which leaves TTV #118 reserved to devote our full attention to “The Bells Of St. John”.

On 4/5 FNW revisits “Doctor Who: The Movie” in celebration of Daphne Ashbrook coming to Planet Comicon that weekend.

Look for updates all weekend long, (and maybe a few special exclusives too,) but we’ll give you the full scoop on Planet Comicon 2013 in episode #119, as well as start the month of April with our celebration of Jon Pertwee’s third Doctor by reviewing IDW Comic’s “Prisoners Of Time 3”.

FNW 4/12 is “The Waters Of Mars” with tenth Doctor David Tennant.

Because of the hugeness of Planet Comicon, you may have noticed we didn’t review the new episode of Who last week.  Well fret not, because you’ll get a two-fer in Traveling The Vortex #120, covering both “The Rings Of Akhaten”, and “The Cold War”.

and the plot thickens…

Schedules, Schedules, Get Your Schedules Here!

We’ve tweaked the upcoming schedule a bit to line up better with our 50th Anniversary plans, so for those of you following along at home, here’s an update for the next month or so…

The first week of March (3/1) we’ll finish “The Reign Of Terror” (parts 4-6) on Friday Night Who.

Traveling The Vortex #114 is our First Doctor retrospective.  We’ll discuss “The Reign Of Terror”, give our thoughts on the values of these and other animated episodes, as well as cover the first Doctor era (that we’ve reviewed to date).

Friday Night Who on 3/8 is “The King’s Demons” with fifth Doctor Peter Davison.

TTV #115 covers our reviews of “The King’s Demons” and Big Finish #26 “Primeval”.

Come celebrate my birthday on 3/15 with Tom Baker in “The Ark In Space”.

Traveling The Vortex #116 will have our reviews of “The Ark In Space” and our first foray into the Big Finish 4th Doctor Adventures; #1 “Destination: Nerva”.

On 3/22 our Friday Night Who will be the 2nd Doctor Patrick Troughton in “The Mind Robber”.

And episode #117 will be our Second Doctor retrospective, and have our reviews of the “The Mind Robber” as well as IDW’s comic “Prisoners Of Time” issue 2, and Big Finish’s Shadow of Death (Destiny Of The Doctor 2).

That rams us right up against the new series starting.

(SPOILERS AHEAD) I’m still fleshing things out from that point on, but if the scuttlebutt is to be believed, the first episode of the return of series seven deals with ghosts.  I’d love to pair up the seventh Doctor adventure “Ghost Light” with that one, but we’ll wait and see if things get a bit more nailed down in the coming weeks.

Schedule Addendum

DW_50TH-cvrRIASomething that sneaked up on us this week is the IDW comic line being released specially for the 50th anniversary year of Doctor Who called Doctor Who: Prisoners of Time. The title is a yearlong celebration of Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary, featuring all 11 Doctors. Issue one releases today (January 30th) and features the First Doctor, Ian, Barbera, and Vicki.

From IDW:
November 23, 1963: A day that changed the world forever. That day saw the broadcast debut of Doctor Who, which was to become the longest-running science-fiction series on television. And now 50 years later, we pay tribute to one of the greatest pop-culture heroes of all time with this special series, which tells an epic adventure featuring all 11 incarnations of the intrepid traveler through time and space known simply as… the Doctor.

When I (Glenn) saw that we had overlooked what is just one more wonderful piece of this monumental year in Who fandom, I felt that it needed to be included. So, with Shaun and Keith’s approval I have requested that we add this to review on this week’s podcast.

So, listeners, if you are following along, and would like to get ahead of our review, Doctor Who: Prisoners of Time #1 is on sale now at your local comic retailers. And the Vortex Boys will include a review of this first title in Traveling the Vortex Episode 110.

Be sure to have a listen.

Scheduling Beyond The Apocalypse…

Assuming the Mayan calendar was meant to be flipped over and restarted and the end of the world does NOT happen on 12/21, here is the revised schedule we discussed on the podcast.

Friday Night Who on 12/14 will be the first three parts of “The Time Monster” staring Jon Pertwee.

With Glenn off to visit the happiest place on earth, our show this week (TTV #103) will be just me and Keith tackling… BOOKS!  In Book Reviews III Keith will review Touched By An Angel by Jonathon Morris, and I’ll take a look at Apollo 23 by Justin Richards.  Both books feature the 11th Doctor.

Friday Night Who on apocalypse day itself, we’ll find out if the Master was successful in destroying the world or not as we finish “The Time Monster” with parts 4-6.

Traveling The Vortex episode #104 is our second Adversary Archive on The Master, and we’ll cover “The Time Monster” as well as Big Finish story #21 “Dust Breeding”.

We’ll celebrate the Christmas theme on 12/28, with David Tennant in “The Christmas Invasion” for Friday Night Who.

And then, episode #105 will be our complete discussion of this years Christmas Special, “The Snowmen”. 

And of course, with the breaking news that Doctor Who will return in April, we can commit to the next bit of scheduling.  2013 brings us more Big Finish audios!

We’ll kick the new year off on Friday Night Who with Peter Davison in “The Awakening” on 1/4.

TTV #106 has our review of “The Awakening” and Big Finish story #20 “Loups-Garoux”

A few we’ve already reviewed for FNW on 1/11 with Matt Smith in the two part “The Pandorica Opens” / “The Big Bang”.

Which makes way for more Paul McGann audio stories from Big Finish in TTV #107.  We last left the eighth Doctor in the divergent universe, so we pick up with Big Finish #52 “Scherzo” and #53 “The Creed Of The Kormon”.

On 1/18, Friday Night Who brings us “Nightmare Of Eden” with fourth Doctor Tom Baker.

TTV #108 we’ll review “Nightmare Of Eden” and Big Finish #27 “The One Doctor”.

The final FNW of January (1/25) features Sylvester McCoy in “The Happiness Patrol”.

And show #109 will be our reviews of “The Happiness Patrol” and Big Finish #25 “Colditz”.

February is still a bit of a jumble with Gally smack dab in the middle of it, but I can hint that  we’ll have our first official comic book review (it may also have something to do with Star Trek), a show about crafty Whovians, if all goes well some interviews, and of course, more reviews.

As always, thank you so much listeners, for your faith and feedback.
