Radio Free Skaro #376 – I’ll Be In My Trailer

Radio Free Skaro #376 – Click here to listen!

rfs376San Diego Comic Con! Over the years, SDCC has become a mecca not only of pop culture, cosplay and general lunacy, but also an important platform by which Doctor Who announces mammoth events like, say‚Ķthe 50th Anniversary Special Trailer. The crowds went wild in Hall H, and mere moments later, entitled fans worldwide bristled in anger, fury and impotent frustration that they were not included in the fun IMMEDIATELY. What they should have done is focused their‚Ķenthusiasm at this week’s episode of RFS, which contains not only news from SDCC and elsewhere but also a commentary for The Rings of Akhaten, featuring costumer Mette Hedin and Erik Stadnik of Doctor Who: The Writer’s Room. Now that’s value! Enjoy!

Doctor Who Series 7 North America DVD Release

DoctorWho_CompleteS7_BLUDoctorWho_CompleteS7_DVD
One week after North America gets The Ice Warriors and Scream of the Shalka on DVD, on September 24, those of us on this side of the Atlantic will be able to buy the complete Seventh Series of Doctor Who on DVD and Blu-Ray.

The release, set to include both Christmas Specials (The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe and The Snowmen) and the other 13 episodes from this most recent series, will have bonus features such as episode prequels, behind the scenes featurettes, some content from The Nerdist and several specials including Pond Life. Audio commentaries are also included, but the information we’ve got at this point doesn’t say how many episodes have commentaries; don’t be surprised if commentary isn’t included for every episode (but soon enough the Radio Free Skaro commentaries for Series 7 will all be available!).

MSRP for the DVD release is $79.99 while the MSRP for the Blu-Ray release is $89.99; click on the artwork above for a larger image. Check TVShowsOnDVD.comfor more details!

Radio Free Skaro #374 – The Inside Story

rfs374The Three Who Rule went west to Westercon this week, special guests of the 66th edition of one of the longest running science fiction conventions in the world. Much fun was had, much sun was enjoyed, and all three of the RFS hosts were very active on a variety of panels throughout the weekend. One such panel devoted to the history of Radio Free Skaro is presented in this episode, in which the past seven years of RFS podcasts are recounted, the highs, the lows, from humble beginnings to the recent triumphs of today (what other podcast has had a commentary of Delta and the Bannermen, we ask you?). We hope you enjoy our introspective look at a podcast that we truly do enjoy producing every week to hopefully entertain and distract you from your minor inconveniences.
