Radio Free Skaro #243 – Five Rounds Rapid

Radio Free Skaro #243 – Click here to listen

The world of Doctor Who lost one of its icons this past week, and all fans are mourning the passing of our beloved Brigadier, Nicholas Courtney. The highs from Gallifrey came crashing down as the news of Courtney’s death hit earlier in the week, and it was only fitting that a Courtney tribute episode be recorded. We welcomed Doctor Who script editor, New Adventures author and Doctor Who Magazine editor, Big Finish producer and life-long Doctor Who fan Gary Russell on the show to reminisce about his experiences with the wonderful Mr. Courtney. Please join us as we remember Sir Alastair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart, the man who portrayed him as well as cover the news of the week.

With the 2011 edition of Gallifrey One over half over, the Three Who Rule were still hard at work bringing you interviews with tremendously interesting people at the convention. Torchwood: Miracle Day is keenly discussed with writers Jane Espenson and Doris Egan, and the music of Doctor Who, specifically Murray Gold, was discussed with music scholars Emily Kausalik and Michaela Schubert. Also joining us for the fun are our good friends Eric from Mostly Harmless Cutaway and Sean from Tardis Tavern. Enjoy, everyone! Only one more day to go…

Gallifrey One is in full swing and the first of the daily Radio Free Skaro was screaming out to be released. Of course, being the first episode for Gally it can mean only one thing – PODCEST! The topic of the day was the convention, naturally, and a Warrenless crew comprised of Chip from Two-minute Time Lord, Eric from Mostly Harmless Cutaway, Tim from Tim’s Take On, Erik from Bridging The Rift, Paul from Pharos Project and Katrina from Bridging The Rift joined Steven and Chris for a round table tête-a-tête-a-tête-a-tête-a-tête-a-tête-a-tête-a-tête and later on we sat down with Ken from Podshock for more Gally talk. Let the madness begin!

Blue Meanie – a film by Warren Frey

Warren here. I’ve worked in television for years, I write professionally, and I make videos for a living…but despite all that I’ve never made a Doctor Who fan film. Well, after attending the fan filmmaking panels at Gallifrey twice and dispensing advice to other cine-nerds, I figured it was time to put my money where my mouth is. I present to you Blue Meanie, the story of one man’s torture by Type 40. I hope you enjoy it, and if you’re going to Gallifrey, stop by the fan video room at 1:40, watch the movie again and say hello!

Radio Free Skaro #236 – Brave Heart, Teague

Radio Free Skaro #236 – Click here to listen

As the countdown to Gallifrey One continues (less than two weeks away!), the Three Who Rule tumble in to the collected works of director Colin Teague in this week’s instalment of the Miniscope. Despite Teague’s opprobrious epithet, the Three were pleasantly surprised at his directorial skill which constantly shone over some of the written inspiration he had to work with. Also dealt with was the news of the week, featuring all three hosts blanking on the duties of a recently added Gallifrey One guest (it’s prosthetics – duh).
