Radio Free Skaro #298 – Click here to listen!

Our Gallifrey One coverage concludes for another year as we chat with some gentlemen who played integral roles in launching Doctor Who in the 1960s and 1990s. First up, Ian Chesterton, Sir Ian, Knight of Jaffa himself, the amazing William Russell joins Steven and Ken Deep in reminiscing about what Doctor Who and TV production in general was like in the early days of the programme. Following that, An Unearthly Child and Marco Polo director Waris Hussein outlines his role in helping to create the longest running science fiction show ever. Fast forward three decades to the 1996 Fox TV Movie, the brainchild of Philip Segal, who discusses the many pitfalls that he encountered to get the 8th Doctor’s only televised adventure brought to our screens. And finally, we catch up with friend of the show Phil Ford about aliens, wizards, and tequila. And stay tuned at the end to hear Radio Free Skaro’s plans for the next few months while we wait for new Doctor Who!

Thanks to everyone who we met and those who we met again at Gally this year, and thanks to you, dear listener, for tuning in to our coverage. An utterly unforgettable weekend, and we’re already looking forward to coming back next year!

The interviews have been wonderful and the whole Gally experience as covered by your good selves has certainly made me very jealous indeed.
