The 44th anniversary of Doctor Who was marked by two sad occasions with the passing Peter Haining, the author of Doctor Who: A Celebration (the bible of the show in our formative years), and Verity Lambert, the co-creator of the program. But it wasn’t all doom and gloom, as we delved into how we celebrated the show’s birthday, the conclusion of the first season of the Sarah Jane Adventures, and other bits and pieces. Enjoy!

Time Crash! Yes, the first meeting of Doctors old and new was of course on top of our list of things to talk about, but more or less everything else was Barrowman this and musical theatre that, along with our usual helpings of abuse and miscellany. Enjoy!
Yes, for only the second time in Radio Free Skaro history, two of the hosts of the show were in the same place at the same time, huddled around a single computer. Of course, with the inclusion of the Third Guy, we still used the invisible tethers of the Internet to connect to London, and those tethers eventually snapped, leaving him relaying his messages to us via telegraph and carrier pigeon for the final minutes of the show. But despite the technical difficulties of both this week and last, we pressed on, bringing you a bumper crop of news, sarcasm and a few selections from the Series 3 soundtrack for your listening pleasure.
Apologies to all eagerly awaiting another episode of Radio Free Skaro. We ran into a few technical snags, which may or may not be related to upgrading to Leopard but certainly isn’t helping me record the podcast. We’re aiming for a Sunday spectacular, once I’ve beaten my Macbook Pro into submission. Crossed fingers!
Andrew Cartmel, best known for his quasi-mysterious (but mostly not so mysterious) interpretation of Sylvester McCoy’s seventh Doctor, is rumored to be writing an episode of season two of Torchwood. Pray this does not occur…not that Torchwood is the sine quoi non of writing in the first place.
