May The Schedule Be With You

Here’s a schedule update to carry us forward into June:

Friday Night Who on 4/25 is the recently discovered (and just released on DVD in North America) Patrick Troughton story “The Web Of Fear” Parts 1-3.

Show #174 finishes our review of  “Torchwood: Miracle Day” (episodes 6-10), as well as an overview of the entire season, and the web comic “Web Of Lies”.

FNW on 5/2 we complete “The Web Of Fear” Parts 4-6.

To celebrate our epivesrary in episode #175,  we present an Adversary Archive on The Great Intelligence.  At least the first part. We’ll be covering it’s appearances in “The Snowmen”, “The Abominable Snowmen* “, and have our review of “The Web Of Fear”.

* NOTE – “The Abominable Snowmen” is not available other than as recon or book format, as it has unfortunately not been recovered. You may have some difficulty finding it to join in our review.

FNW 5/9 is a taste of Matt Smith in “The Bells Of St. John”.

We continue our Adversary Archive on The Great Intelligence with Part 2 in Traveling The Vortex #176.  We’ll be covering the villains appearances in “Downtime* “, “The Bells Of St. John”, and “The Name Of The Doctor”.

* NOTE – “Downtime” is a fan produced spin off film that had a VHS release, and was also part of the Virgin New Adventures line of books. As such, you may have some difficulty finding it to join in our review.

May is the fifth Doctor’s month, so for Friday Night Who on 5/16 we’ll watching “Four To Doomsday”.

TTV #177 has our reviews of “Four To Doomsday” and E Book 5 “Tip Of The Tongue”.

Ninth Doctor Christopher Eccleston comes back to Friday Night Who on 5/23 in “Dalek”.

Which sets up episode #178 – The Adaptation Argument. We’ll be comparing and contrasting the supposed connections between Big Finish #40 “Jubilee” vs “Dalek”.

More fifth Doctor on 5/30 for FNW as we (finally! Chrissy shouts) watch “Caves Of Androzani”.

Our entire show for #179 is dedicated to the masterpiece that is “Caves Of Androzani”, and weather or not its worthy of that status.

And as we wind into June, 6/6 brings us the next story, Colin Baker’s debut in “The Twin Dilemma”.

June is the sixth Doctor’s month, so Traveling The Vortex #180 is all about him. We’ll review “The Twin Dilemma” and E Book 6  “Something Borrowed”.

After that?  Not a clue yet. But we’ll keep you posted.

Episode 173 – All I Need is a Miracle Day

TTV Logo 1400Sorry, again, for the delay in this week’s podcast. As you’ll hear we are still struggling with a few illnesses and conflicts in scheduling.

In this week’s show we take a break from Doctor Who and tackle one of it’s spin-off shows. We give our impressions on the first five parts of Torchwood: Miracle Day.

Also, some of the news of the week, including our first thoughts on the new update for the wonderful game, Doctor Who: Legacy.

Plus, we have a special treat from listener Brenda. It’s something that we enjoyed immensely and we are sure you will, too.

And of course, your feedback!

Hopefully, it was worth the wait.


It’s Spring Time For Schedule

This week is Planet Comicon… so the “schedule” may be a bit wobbly wobbly. BUT, we plan on doing “Remembrance Of The Daleks” on 3/14 with Sylvester McCoy. (keep in mind we may not actually get to participate much due to our con responsibilities.)

Our show this week #168 will be all about our experiences at KC Planet Comicon 2014.

On 3/21 FNW is  Jon Pertwee in the first 3 parts of “The Mutants”.

And on the horizon? I’m sorry, it’s the event horizon of a black hole, and the schedule was sucked

into it just









Loose Threads 1/20/12

As seen and heard around the vortex…

* Torchwood: Miracle Day has been nominated in the Outstanding Drama Series category of the 23rd Annual GLAAD Awards.  GLAAD Media Awards honor outstanding media images of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community that inspire change.

* Gallifrey One’s Network 23 has updated their guest list again, click HERE for the details, but in a nut shell you can cross Tony Lee and Mary Tamm off your autograph list and add Caitlin Blackwood (Young Amy Pond from “The Eleventh Hour”, “The Big Bang”, “Let’s Kill Hitler”, and “The God Complex”, Simon Fisher-Becker (Dorium Maldovar from “The Pandorica Opens”, “A Good Man Goes To War” and “The Wedding Of River Song”), Waris Hussein (Director, “An Unearthly Child”), Nigel Fairs (Big Finish), Daniele Favilli (Angelo Colasanto from Torchwood: Miracle Day), Linda Thorson (Tara King, The Avengers), Travis Richey (Inspector Spacetime on Community), Jay Acovone (Kowalski, Stargate SG-1), and Vernon Wells (Power Rangers).

* Grand Moff Steven continues to dangle bits of Who news before us like string before deranged kittens–that is, without really revealing anything.  In an interview published shortly before Christmas, Moffatt said “I can clarify that we start shooting in mid-February, but I can’t tell you what the schedule is.”  He later clarified, “We always do 14 because we do the Christmas special as well and obviously we start in the autumn with the Christmas special as part of the run, so it’ll be at least 14.”

In regards to the 50th Anniversary, he hinted there may be more than one special episode…  “Why talk in the singular? Again, genuinely, the plans are at an early stage, but we have some very clear ideas about some of the things we’re doing, and I think Doctor Who fans and kids will think it’s the best thing ever. We’ve got a load of very big plans – the mere fact that we’re talking about this two years before the event should tell you how seriously we’re taking it.”  In an interview uploaded yesterday Moffatt said, “I promise you, for so many reasons I can’t talk about yet, there will never be a better time to be a Doctor Who fan, I absolutely promise that.” All this on top of teasing the departure of the Ponds, and the (maybe) arrival of Sophia Miles as the new companion.

* On a sad note, we mourn the passing of acress Jenny Tomasin at age 75.  Jenny played the role of Tasambeker, an infatuated employee of Tranquil Repose who fell victim to manipulation by Davros in the 1985 Colin Baker Doctor Who story “Revelation Of The Daleks”, (which we just watched on Friday Night Who a month ago), but Tomasin was better known as Ruby on Upstairs Downstairs.
