rfs491Back from the Hugo Awards and reunited once more, the Three Who Rule have a grab bag of newsiness this week, including the sad cancellation of the New York Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular “for reasons”, Peter Davison’s upcoming autobiography, and more! But the main feature of this week’s episode is the return of Fluid Links, where we answer listener questions and, at least once or twice, engage in actual debate! Stirring stuff!

Radio Free Skaro Patreon Special #2: Dr. Who and the Daleks Commentary

Radio Free Skaro Patreon Special #2 – Click here to listen!

rfspatreon2Peter Cushing is known to many as the face of Hammer Horror or Grand Moff Tarkin from Star Wars. But to a generation of British kids caught in the frenzied madness known as Dalekmania in the mid-1960s, he was also Dr. Who, kindly professor and non-canonical Time Lord battling the Daleks in two separate (non-canonical) adventures! The first of which we bring to you (non-canonically) in the form of an entertaining commentary, with much gratitude, loyal Patreon contributors! To Skaro, in glorious colour!

rfs490Another Hugos has come and gone, and with it two-thirds of the Radio Free Skaro crew can cross “host pre and post show at the Hugos and ad-lib for almost a half hour during same” off their bucket list. Though the Hugos were…dogged with controversy, in the eye of the storm all was calm and in fact Steven and Warren (along with Verity’s own Erika Ensign) were pleased to attend their first Worldcon, an international celebration of science fiction and fantasy that pre-dates (and was interrupted by) World War II! And as if that wasn’t enough, the Two and Verity Who Rule bring you all the latest Doctor Who news, of which there is a smattering! Enjoy!

Radio Free Skaro #489 – Revolution 9

Radio Free Skaro #489 – Click here to listen!

rfs489A new trailer for Series 9 of Doctor Who was released this week, simultaneously stoking and dampening the fires of Steven and Warren’s clinically insane theories regarding the upcoming Capaldis of Pompeii story/rumour/nonsense. But more lunacy awaits, with Tom Baker intoning that he is joining the Star Wars universe (!?), Hacette putting out a mammoth collection of Doctor Who books chronicling the history of the show from start to finish, and the Doctor Who Fan Show interviewing Titans Comics impresario Andrew James (link in the show notes). We also have an interview with Hugos person-in-charge David D’Antonio, who talks to Steven about the upcoming Worldcon in Spokane and the Hugo Awards taking place at said con. Tune into the pre and post Hugos live show next Saturday on UStream to see Steven and Warren debase themselves like grovelling insects on the newfangled invention of video!

Aslo if you’d like to hear writer Paul Cornell, artist Neil Edwards and Titan Comics editor Andrew James talk about the upcoming Doctor Who Comics Day on August 15, as well as the mini-series “Four Doctors”, this is also your day!

rfs487Despite a somewhat sparse news list this week, the Three Who Rule managed to engage in ill-informed badinage for longer than was strictly necessary, covering exciting topics like a new and even more evil form of stats, and the differences between versions of Netflix. Thrilling! But lest you think that’s all they had in store, keep listening…as the Miniscope returns to examine the collected works of pioneering classic Who director Paddy Russell, who helmed four stories from 1966-1977!
