Tag Archive: Timelash
And as promised on last week’s podcast, here’s the schedule to finish out the wild ride that has been 2014!
For Friday Night Who TONIGHT on Halloween, we get our Cyberman on, with the first four parts of “The Invasion” with Patrick Troughton.
Which should be the perfect lead in to this week’s TTV #201 to discuss “Dark Water”.
FNW 11/7 – “The Invasion” Part 5-8
To finish off Capaldi’s first season, TTV #202 takes a look at “Death In Heaven”.
Colin Baker returns to FNW on 11/14 in “Timelash”.
And a special treat for Traveling The Vortex #203. It’s a Companion Archive! Who for? Why everybody’s favorite shapeshifting Penguin, Frobisher! We’ll be discussing Big Finish #14 “The Holy Terror” and the Big Finish Special episode “The Maltese Penguin”.
FNW 11/21 is “Paradise Towers” with 7th Doctor Sylvester McCoy.
EDIT – As Glenn mentioned on the show last week and this, we are adding a few comic elements to the episode in order to do a “mini” adversary archive for the Quarks. If you can find them, you may wish to consult these for additional reference:
(Invasion of the Quarks, The Killer Wasps, The Jungle Of Doom, Martha The Mechanical Housemaid, The Duelist, Death Race, The Fires Down Below, Happy Deathday)
TTV #204 will have our reviews of “Paradise Towers”, and Big Finish Audio #46 “Flip Flop”.
Thanksgiving weekend brings us Chicago Tardis! And while we still have yet to manage to organize plans to get the three of us up there (We’re working on it) we ARE watching “The Robots Of Death” for Friday Night Who this week.
Episode #205 is full of Fun and Games. We will have YOUR reports from Chicago Tardis (if anyone is going, PLEASE let us know!) We’ll touch on Titan Comic’s 12th Doctor Premier issue, and spend the rest of the time discussing the Doctor Who tie-ins: Risk & Yahtzee. Oh, and a special treat (if all goes well) from the folks over at Tiny Rebel Games in regards to Doctor Who Legacy.
FNW 12/5 – “Black Orchid”
TTV #206 – and a pair of Peter Davison audios Big Finish #41 “Nekromanteia”, and #56 “The Axis Of Insanity”.
I’m really looking forward to returning to this Jon Pertwee story for Friday Night Who on 12/12, “Frontier In Space”. It’s a long one, so we’ll do the first three parts. 1-3
TTV #207 – We’ll touch base with Titan Comic’s 10th and 11th Doctors story arcs, and revisit Paul McGann’s Eighth Doctor and Charlie Pollard in Big Finish Audio #103 “The Girl Who Never Was”.
FNW 12/19 – “Frontier In Space” Part 4-6.
Earlier this year we started reviewing last year’s 50th Anniversary E Book Series, and got a little side tracked once series 8 came on. Time to rectify that in Traveling The Vortex #208, as we’ll review the final four books in the series: E Book 9: “The Beast Of Babylon”, E Book 10: “The Mystery Of The Haunted Cottage”, E Book 11: “Nothing O’Clock”, E Book 12: “Lights Out”.
Our last FNW in December (12/26) is the David Tennant Christmas special “The Next Doctor”.
And our last show of 2014, TTV #209 will cover all the glory that is this years (still untitled as of this posting) Peter Capaldi Christmas Special.
Which takes us all the way up to 2015. Without sounding the spoiler horn, I can only say the new year holds a lot of potential so far. More details to come!
Please join @vortexshaun, @VortexKeith and @travelvortex (and maybe a visit from @vortexglenn, who is on holiday this weekend) for all the fun on twitter for the live conversation, and look for the #FridayNightWho and #Timelash hashtags. We push play at midnight, CDT…
Coming up on the Vortex… Friday Night Who on 7/27 features the fourth Doctor in “The Horns Of Nimon”
Our show that week #83 is a Nimon adversary archive, featuring our reviews of “The Horns Of Nimon” and Big Finish #30 “Seasons Of Fear”.
Starting in August the following week on FNW is fifth Doctor Peter Davison in “Time Flight”.
TTV #84 will include our reviews of “Time Flight” and Big Finish #10 “Winter For The Adept”.
Sixth Doctor Colin Baker returns to the FNW line up on 8/10 in “Timelash”.
Our reviews of the sixth Doctor adventures “Timelash”, and Big Finish #3 “Whispers Of Terror” make up our 85th episode of Traveling The Vortex.
And then in honor of Keith and Sarah’s wedding on the 18th of August, for our Friday Night Who the night before (8/17) we’ll watch Keith’s favorite episode, “Vincent And The Doctor”.
Keith will be gone on holiday–his honeymoon–the 19th through the 27th, so TTV #86 will just be Glenn and Shaun with a second set of Book Reviews: Glenn will review The Eight Doctors featuring the eighth Doctor by Terrance Dicks, while Shaun takes a stab at Amorality Tale by David Bishop featuring the third Doctor.
Beyond that we’re in a state of flux while we wait for an official start date for series seven (though we believe it to be on or about the 25th.) We’ll play the next few weeks by ear until such time as a official release date comes down the pipe.
* REVISED! In order to give the Vortex Boys just a bit more time to get though all the Shada goodies, we’ve flip flopped two weeks on the upcoming schedule. City Of Death has been bumped back a week, and The Keys Of Marinus and Phantasmagoria move up one.
Once again it’s time to update you all on the joyous goodness coming your way. (Or the giggle inducing horror of it all, whichever you prefer!)
Tonight we’ll record episode #74, an Adversary Archive on The Daleks (again). Can’t help it they’ve just got so many episodes. We’ll discuss the Jon Pertwee stories “Frontier In Space” and “Planet Of The Daleks” that make up the Dalek war box set, as well as Big Finish #7 “The Genocide Machine (Dalek Empire 1)” with Sylvester McCoy.
Next week’s Friday Night Who on 6/1 is the Matt Smith story “The Eleventh Hour”.
And then, the big massive spectacular 75th epiversary is our first set of BOOK REVIEWS! Glenn will be sharing his thoughts on Crooked World featuring the eighth Doctor by Steve Lyons, Shaun reviews Only Human with the ninth Doctor by Gareth Roberts, and Keith talks about The Story Of Martha with the tenth Doctor by Dan Abnett.
June 8th’s Friday Night Who takes us back to William Hartnell’s First Doctor with “The Keys Of Marinus”.
On Traveling The Vortex episode #76 we’ll review “The Keys Of Marinus” and Big Finish #2 “Phantasmagoria”.
Friday Night Who on 6/15 is the Tom Baker classic “City Of Death” written by Douglas Adams!
For episode #77 is an explosion of Douglas Adams, as we cover “City Of Death” and ALL THINGS SHADA: Shada The Book, Shada The VHS Reconstruction, Shada The Animated Story, Shada The Flash Animation, Shada The Big Finish, Shada The Flame Thrower!
Colin Baker makes a return to Friday Night Who on June 22 with the story “Timelash”.
And then we’ll review “Timelash” and Big Finish #3 “Whispers Of Terror”.
FNW 6/29 is one of Shaun’s all time favorite stories, “The Android Invasion” with Tom Baker.
TTV #79 covers “The Android Invasion” and the BBC Radio drama: “Torchwood: Lost Souls”.
And our first Friday Night Who of June ( 7/6) is the awesome series one two parter “The Doctor Dances / The Empty Child” with Christopher Eccleston.
Wait! …what was that? Did you say TORCHWOOD was on the schedule again? Can that mean? Yep. It’s time to subject Keith to the glory of “Torchwood: Children Of Earth” which we’ll cover in episode 80.
As always, an amazing thank you to all of our amazing listeners for joining us on these travels. Thanks for putting up with us!
