November 2013 North America Doctor Who DVD Release

DoctorWho_TheTenthPlanet
With the Regenerations box set, perhaps rightly, bypassing North America, those of us in Region 1 will be looking forward to November 19 for a pre-anniversary treat. The Tenth Planet, a seminal story in Doctor Who’s history, will see its DVD release on this side of the Atlantic.

Bonus materials, aka VAM, included on the release naturally mirror those of the Region 2 release and include the reconstruction of Episode 4 that appeared on the VHS release early last decade, the eagerly-awaited William Hartnell interview, commentary and more – and of course this features the animated version of Episode 4 previously released with the Regenerations box set version. UPDATE: Doctorwho.tv have released the full details of the release! Read about it here.

A bumper 2-DVD set, MSRP for The Tenth Planet will be $34.98. Check TVShowsOnDVD.com for more details!

rfs381The Three Who Rule welcome back our very good friend Chip from the Two-minute Time Lord podcast as we all talk over Neil Gaiman’s most recent Doctor Who effort, Nightmare in Silver. Has some time and distance since the story’s initial broadcast allowed our hearts to warm to it more, or was the extremely divisive reaction from fandom warranted and still valid? Will the effort satisfy 80s Hair Band pedants? News of the week, with Chip filling in for a very busy Warren, and which includes talk of what might just be the worst merchandise tie-in ever, rounds out this episode of Radio Free Skaro. Excelsior!

Radio Free Skaro #380 – A Study in Crimson

Radio Free Skaro #380 – Click here to listen!

rfs380“Whimsical yet terrifying” is an apt way to describe “The Crimson Horror,” this week’s commentary, but also an accurate portrayal of current Who news. What missive struck fear into the stalwart hearts of the Three Who Rule? Possibly the fact that CBC executives wanted to dub over Christopher Eccleston’s Northern England accent with something more suitable to Canadian ears. Perhaps a Newfie accent would have made more sense. Or perhaps it was the notion that filming on Series 8 of Doctor Who won’t begin until January? The horror continued with a discussion of David Lee Roth’s storied career, what constitutes a bad fan (hint: probably everything) and more! And that’s before the commentary, with special guest Deb Stanish of the Verity Podcast! Enjoy!

rfs378
Peter Capaldi is the Twelfth Doctor! Announced during a worldwide live TV broadcast, Peter Capaldi was introduced to an Elstree TV studio full of delighted fans and an entire planet full of excited watchers, and the result is near unanimous – Steven Moffat’s sole choice for the role was the right. Good thing the Three Who Rule recorded the news two days before the announcement…and got the announcement right! Amazing foresight (luck) on their part! However, Erika from Verity! not only drops by to talk with Steven about the live broadcast of Capaldi’s reveal, but also joins the crew for a commentary on the Series 7 episode “Hide”. All hail Peter the Great! And the new Peter, too!
