Here’s an updated summary of the original post we did about the writers and directors who are working on the 2010 series of Doctor Who. We’ve managed to find proof of the involvement of at least two more writers, as well as the possible involvement of acclaimed director Euros Lyn.
Here’s what we can confirm:
– Adam Smith (Block One and Block Three); IMDB profile
Proof of directors is difficult to find until after they’ve wrapped up their particular block of filming, but we can tell you this :
– Euros Lyn was sighted on set (but not working) during Block Four (warning: link contains spoilers), and the crew is shooting in Trogir, Croatia for a second time (the first trip was back in August) to film scenes for Block Five.
Stay tuned to radiofreeskaro.com, and listen to our weekly podcasts, to keep up to date on future writer and director announcements!

Tonight on the annual Children in Need charity drive broadcast, a clip from the upcoming The End of Time Part One was shown. While we at Radio Free Skaro are hesitant to consider things formally announced by the BBC to be spoilers, there are those who will wish to ignore this should they wish to not know any content from the Christmas Day episode.
The BBC this morning formally announced the previously unknown title for the Christmas Day episode. While it has been known for months that Tennant’s final episode would be called “The End of Time” the production team was keeping things hush hush for the penultimate episode, though that silence has now been broken and we now know the title to be — wait for it — “The End of Time Part One“.
Okay, call it a smidge underwhelming that they’ve teased us like this only to give us something we already knew but for us old school fans there’s a certain nostalgia that makes us grin from ear to ear to know something in NuWho will finally be called “Part One” and “Part Two”.
(WARNING: SPOILERS BELOW) Torchwood: Children of Earth ripped through our television screens a few months ago, leaving a trail of controversy, destruction, and satisfied viewers in its wake. While CoE raised interesting questions about love, sacrifice and just how crazy Jack/Ianto fans could get when faced with their ultimate nightmare, it also pointed what was left of the Torchwood team in a very, very small corner.
Simon Brew over at Den of Geek has posted a wonderful summary article outlining a hefty chunk of what has been gleaned from interviews and formal announcements, along with sneaky peeks from fellow fans and other sources, about David Tennant’s finale beginning next month. Radio Free Skaro’s own Chris was fortunate enough to have a pedantic hand in the piece, which quite obviously carries with it the heftiest of spoiler tags. Anyone who’s been fortunate enough to keep their head buried in the sand with respect to spoilers should most definitely NOT take a look.
The article can be found here, and it’s definitely worth reiterating the VERY spoilery nature of the piece.
|After seven long months, Doctor Who returned to the airwaves in high style with “The Waters of Mars,” a topper of a story and one heck of a lead-in to the Doctor’s imminent demise and resurrection. The Three Who Rule were effusive in their praise of The Waters of Mars, though somewhat less so when the conversation came to the latest episodes of the Sarah Jane Adventures, which Chris (also known as “Curmudge-or”) succinctly labeled as “poop”. The trio even discussed how Steven somehow managed to get onto UK radio last week and participate in a conference call with David Tennant. Intellectual banter and relentless name-dropping ahoy!|
