Tag Archive: The Rani
Late again this week, but it’s finally here. In this week’s episode of Traveling the Vortex, we look back over the last few weeks of stories reviewed and focus on the rogues and renegades of Doctor Who. We focus our attention on The Meddling Monk, The War Chief, Omega, The Master, and The Rani. Also how The Doctor, and perhaps even Rassilon fit this title.
Also, our take on the news of the week, and of course your feedback.
As we laughed about for quite a while in this week’s episode….a Chimp surprises twins at a zoo
In this week’s episode we explore another Adversary Archive, this time with a look at The Rani. We review two classic stories, first the Sixth Doctor’s encounter with The Rani in The Mark of the Rani. Then we tackle the Seventh Doctor’s first story in Time and the Rani.
Then stick around after our portion for a look at the music of these two stories, brought to you by Dr. Phil from Adventures In Time, Space and Music Podcast.
Also, a look at this week’s news, and lots of feedback from our listeners this week.
As mentioned in Mark’s feedback, the Marmite Rice Cakes!
