Radio Free Skaro #347 – Toyfairgate
|A shocking amount of news made its way from the wilds of the Internet to the fevered brains and out of the fetid mouths of the Three Who Rule this week, including the infamous “ToyFairGate,” where canny spies noted BBC posters announcing….somewhat sparse plans for the anniversary year of Doctor Who. The din of fan outrage was such that it almost drowned out announcements of new action figures, soundtracks, special edition DVDs and other delicious morsels.
But controversy and action figure portfolios aside, this week also marks an interview with Paul Scoones, Doctor Who historian and author of “The Comic Strip Companion: 1964-1979” which chronicles decades of Doctor Who comic strips. Scoones is also well known for his deep production knowledge, expressed through the medium of subtitles on Doctor Who DVDs. Steven spent the better part of an hour delving deep into Scoones work with him, and now we bring that interview to you.
And remember, in less than three weeks Radio Free Skaro will open Gallifrey One with our live show, “The Ambassadors of Death!” With a guest lineup of Sylvester McCoy, Philip Hinchcliffe, Bernard Horsfall, Neve McIntosh, Richard Hope and Dan Starkey, it’s sure to be ninety minutes of fun, facts and…a return guest appearance from Chip, the Two Minute Time Lord!
