Episode 239 – Hex Marks the Spot

TTV LOGO NEWIn this week’s podcast we join the Seventh Doctor and Ace once again for two more adventures. First is our review of the middle part of the so-named “Ace Trilogy” with The Curse of Fenric. Then another Big Finish Productions audio, this time with the addition of new companion, Hex in The Harvest.

Plus, a look at some more Series Nine news, including so Doctor Who favorites of none other than the Doctor himself, Peter Capaldi.

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

Episode 87 – The Greatest Show In The Galaxy

It’s finally here. The wedding bells have rung and the party is over. Now it’s time to sit back and recount the day; The Greatest Show In the Galaxy. But first there are a few things to get out of the way. We share our review of another story of that name, the Seventh Doctor and Ace adventure, The Greatest Show In the Galaxy.

Also, our reaction to the news of the week, including the first shots of Doctor Who we’ve had in a long time with episode one of the weeklong prequels – “Pond Life”.

And of course, your feedback.


If you missed it last week (Keith) this is the pic Arthur Darvill posted after his burglary.
