Episode 245 – All Praise the Great One

TTV LOGO NEWWhew! After some tense moments this week, we are finally able to bring you this week’s show. Following a few computer crashes, recovery of files, recording of some new ones, and a bit of editing wizardry, another podcast is in the books. This week, we surmount the curse and bring you our review of the Third Doctor’s final story, Planet of the Spiders. We share our opinions of the end of an era for the show. And be sure to stick around after the credits for a special piece by Dr. Phil of the Adventures in Time Space and Music podcast as he explores some of the music of Planet of the Spiders.

Also, we give our impressions of the recently released trailer for the first story in Series 9, The Magician’s Apprentice. We also chat about the announcement that River Song will return in time for Christmas, and more in the ongoing saga of the release of the Second Doctor story, The Underwater Menace to DVD.

And, of course, your feedback.

Enjoy!

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.

Episode 170 – Ocelots and Whoozles

ttvsmallWelcome to another addition of Traveling the Vortex.

In this week’s episode, we tangent a bit more than usual discussing everything from Minecraft to Spaghetti recipes.

But we do get back on track long enough to give our reviews of the two Third Doctor and Jo stories, the TV episode, The Mutants, and the 50th anniversary e-book, The Spear of Destiny.

Also, some sad news this week with the passing of two legends in Doctor Who.

And of course your feedback.

Enjoy!

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.

And, of course, your feedback.

Enjoy!

Friday Night Who 11/29

The Five Doctors

 

Since we just got a multi-Doctor anniversary episode with “Day of the Doctor” and will be discussing the Big Finish anniversary “The Light At the End” we figured it would be appropriate to continue the trend with “The Five Doctors” for Friday Night Who!

Join @TravelVortex, @VortexKeith, @VortexGlenn & @VortexShaun as they tweet along to the Special Edition (The 1999 DVD release and Disc 2 in the 2008 25th Anniversary release) at Midnight CST!

Keep an eye out for the hashtags #FridayNightWho & #TheFiveDoctors!
