Radio Free Skaro #195 – Graham Crackers

Radio Free Skaro #195 – Click here to listen

A rare occasion for Radio Free Skaro this week in that all three hosts were unanimous in their praise of The Time of Angels, one of the true high points in recent Doctor Who history that not even a slightly reduced duration or an animated Graham Norton could spoil. On top of this, the usual cadre of ratings discussions, all of which is also universally positive on both sides of the Atlantic, as well as general blathering about the week that was in Who. Oh, and did everyone remember to watch Over The Rainbow after Doctor Who?

SPACE Podcast – April 23, 2010

spacebadgeThe Three Who Rule begin a stretch on the SPACE podcast doing what they love best – reviewing new Doctor Who episodes!

Torchwood USA – Not on FOX

The Hollywood Reporter today said that US network FOX has passed on an American version of Torchwood. Jane Tranter, one of the driving forces behind the return of Doctor Who in 2005, has given the usual marketing speak saying the idea of Torchwood USA is itself not dead, however one would assume this development strikes a blow to it happening. The idea had never sat well with the Radio Free Skaro crew, so a collective sigh of relief was breathed at the bunker.

The Daleks are back! And that’s…..well, middling. The Three Who Rule chewed over “Victory of the Daleks,” including the new, sleek models that have all of fandom agog with either love or hate, the WW2 models that instantly warmed our coal-black hearts, and the jowly presence of one Winston Churchill, saviour of Britain. Still, it’s thankfully no “Daleks in Manhattan”. Geronim-ate!
