Comic Trailers

Titan Comics have released two “pre-order” trailers for the new line of comic books. Below you can watch a trailer for the Doctor of you choice…10 or 11…or both! The first issue for both go on sale July 23rd!

Here’s a description for the 10th Doctor comics:

Gabriella Gonzalez is stuck in a dead-end job in her family’s New York Laundromat, dreaming of college and bigger, better and brighter things. So when a strange man with an even stranger big blue box barges into her life on the eve of the Day of the Dead celebrations — talking about an infestation of psychic aliens — she seizes her chance for adventure with both hands!


And Here’s a description for the 11th Doctor comics:

Alice Obiefune has just lost her mother when the Doctor explodes into her life. But what does this grieving young woman have to do with the career of a 70s musician, an amnesiac alien, and a terrifying cosmic threat? In the wake of the second Big Bang, find out what the Doctor gets up to when Amy and Rory aren’t around!

Titan Comics Doctor Who ranges are available globally as digital downloads, and in the US, Canada and Australia as physical copies.

Episode 164 – Not at Gally

ttvsmallIn this week’s show we are one co-host short. Shaun is off in California for Gallifrey One, the premiere Doctor Who convention. So, Keith and I are holding down the fort here at home, and couldn’t go week without indulging in our own Doctor Who. So, this time we are doing book reviews! First, Keith gives his impressions on the Third Doctor and UNIT story, Harvest Of Time. Then, I give my review of the Tenth Doctor story, The Resurrection Casket.

Also, we’ll look at some of the news announced this week.

Also, a look back at this week’s news including the recent announcement that Doctor Who – The Day of the Doctor will be showing across the U.S. including our hometown of Topeka, Kansas.

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…

Episode 75 – Book Reports

This week we take a break from the electronic media delivery of Doctor Who and turn to the novels.

First, Glenn reviews “The Crooked World” by Steve Lyons starring the 8th Doctor. Then, Shaun takes on the 9th Doctor story “Only Human” written by Gareth Roberts. And finally, Keith has a review of “The Story of Martha” by Dan Abnett (and others) featuring Martha and the 10th Doctor. *WARNING THERE WILL BE SPOLIERS*

Also a look at the week’s news including some Galley announcements, and of course your feedback.

Episode 47 – A Dent in the 80’s

In this week’s episode, we revisit The Tenth Doctor and Donna, as they travel to the Planet of the Ood. Then joined by Martha and UNIT as they try to unravel the mystery of The Sontaran Stratagem and The Poison Sky.

Also, we’ll add fuel to the speculation fires as we remark on our hopes, wants, and predictions for a Doctor Who Movie with director David Yates at the helm.

And, of course, your feedback. Enjoy!

Muldwych’s article on the Movie rumors

Here is a video Keith found and is the reason why the Quantum Leap theme was going through our heads all night: Quantum Who [Doctor Who-Quantum Leap style]

While we’re at it, here’s one he found with the Firefly open: Doctor Who – Opening Credits – [Firefly – Style]

Episode – 45 – Allons-y, Alonso!

The Doctor: What’s your name?
Midshipman Frame: Alonso.
The Doctor: You’re kidding me.
Midshipman Frame: No, is something wrong?
The Doctor: Something else I’ve always wanted to say. Allons-y, Alonso!

We’re headed back to the Tenth Doctor era and the start of Series Four. It also marks the comeback of Donna Noble. This week, our reviews of Voyage of the Damned, Partners in Crime and The Fires of Pompeii. Big news on the Matt Smith front *wink* and of course your feedback. Enjoy!

Keith & Shaun’s Doctor Who Shrine

As Chrissy pointed out we spent a lot of time in episode 42 of Traveling the Vortex talking about the new Doctor Who acquisitions and we should post pictures of them. Well as we promised in Episode 43 here they are! First up is the entire “shrine”

We also have a nice collection of Doctors with a TARDIS bank

And how can you have Doctors without their adversaries?

Then the adorable Character Building Mini Figures Cybermen and Amy Pond.

And to wrap up this long post pictures of the new action figure additions (Silence, 11th Doctor with Stetson, and Nephew) and a picture that I got while in Omaha for Contagion Outbreak.
