Radio Free Skaro #265 – Snakes and Ladders

Radio Free Skaro #265 – Click here to listen!

More Torchwood (it’s still good!) and more stats (they’re still numbers!) and more news and a whole lot of blathering about Christopher Bailey’s Snakedance populate this episode of Radio Free Skaro as the Summer Classic Commentary series continues! The lads take a turn at fashion advice as the return of The Mara is talked over and as ever walk the line of decency as the notion of men in dresses gets a thorough investigation. Allons-y!

Radio Free Skaro #262 – News Of The New World

Radio Free Skaro #262 – Click here to listen!

Two years since Torchwood was last seen on the TV and computer screens in the brilliant “Children of Earth”, the series returned this past weekend on Starz and SPACE (and, soon, BBC One) with the first installment of the ten-part epic “Miracle Day”. And what an assured debut it was, too, with plenty of action and intrigue to go around with some whimsical japes thrown in for good measure. In addition to this, we have the first of our Summer Classic Commentary series (an event so noteworthy that we’ve chosen to capitalize the name) as we watch and talk over the first three parts of the 1972 serial “The Sea Devils”. Radio Free Skaro: as much fun as one could have in a string vest.
