rfs410With Gallifrey One 2014 behind them, the Three Who Rule rallied their weakened, battle-scarred livers and turned their attention to Matt Smith’s last hurrah, “The Time of the Doctor”. Much appreciation! Such regeneration! But first, news, updates and other matters of import! And next week, the classic series commentaries return with “The Sontaran Experiment!” And a week afterwards, the Miniscope reborn! Who will be the focus of the unblinking spreadsheet-y eye of the ‘Scope? You’ll just have to listen to find out!

rfs409The year’s most anticipated event on the calendar of the Three Who Rule and many thousands other Doctor Who fans has come and gone as Gallifrey One: 25 Glorious years has now concluded! Over 3700 attendees, guests, and volunteers enjoyed the event, and Radio Free Skaro was proud to be able to bring a little bit go Gally to you all each day. On this final episode from Gallifrey One, we interview Series 8 writer Phil Ford, “Closing Time” director Steve Hughes, Gallifrey One program director Shaun Lyon, and Doctor Who: The Discontinuity Guide authors Paul Cornell and Keith Topping. We also announce our plans for the next few weeks while we all wait for Series 8 to premiere! Enjoy, and thanks for listening!

Radio Free Skaro #408 – The Case of the Missing Episodes

Radio Free Skaro #408 – Click here to listen!

rfs408Day two of Gallifrey One 2014, and the bright eye of the Three Who Rule cast its fiery, lidless wrath upon the missing episodes. Steven and Chris interview Restoration Team head and video genius Steve Roberts on his own, and missing episode experts Damian Shanahan and Jon Preddle together. But lest you think we’re all about dusty old stories of yesteryear (which, let’s be honest, we sort of are) we also have Erika Ensign of the Verity Podcast and Jason Snell, the impresario behind The Incomparable podcast. So sit back, relax and let the good feelings flow over you as we bring you the finest bits of Gally straight from our mice to your ears.

Radio Free Skaro #407 – Running Through Black Light

Radio Free Skaro #407 – Click here to listen!

rfs407Day Two of Gallifrey One 2014! We ring in this auspicious occasion with the august personage of Dominic Glynn, musician extraordinaire and composer of what many (well…us, anyway) consider the best arrangement of the classic opening theme. And we continue with the Lovely Person Agenda with the presence of author and bon vivant Rob Shearman and comedian, actor and 60s BBC barman Toby Hadoke, who performed his one-man show “My Stepson Stole my Sonic Screwdriver” here at Gallifrey One only last night! But instead of covering that fine event, we spend 20-odd minutes berating the pair of them for not publishing Volume Two of Running Through Corridors. That’s Radio Free Skaro, all class.

Radio Free Skaro #404 – Page Not Found

rfs404In the dog days before the wondrous rapture that is the Gallifrey convention in the greater Los Angeles area, the news was sparse and the fans were restless. However, the reveal of Peter Capaldi’s 12th Doctor costume sparked not only excitement and fevered speculation across Who fandom but was also the cause of an ill-advised tangent on cosplay by Warren, Steven, and Chris, who know less than nothing about such matters and have been replaced by trained seals in 6th Doctor costumes. Next week, the semi-demi-official Gallifrey 2014 preview episode! But for now, a commentary by the Three Who Rule for “The Day of the Doctor”!
Show Notes:

Peter Capaldi’s…Costume!
An Adventure in Space and Time…Soundtrack!
Big Finish…Wins Fictitious Awards!
Gallifrey One…Update!

Commentary:
The Day…of the Doctor!
