Radio Free Skaro #495 – A Frown Called Mercy

Radio Free Skaro #495 – Click here to listen!

rfs495We’re headed back to Skaro for “The Witch’s Familiar”, the second part of the opening story of Series 9, and the Three Who Rule have thoughts, opinions, and perspectives to share on the latest thread in the grand tapestry that is the life of Ernest Q. Davros. (Yes, that’s his name, but shhh, SPOILERS.) Despite the lack of stats, as is only right and proper, there was also news of conventions, Minecraft Doctor Who, and yes…a 5 inch Missy dolly or two. Truly, these are wondrous and expensive days for action dolly aficionados. Next week…Under the Lake!

Radio Free Skaro #493 – Another Brick In The Wall

Radio Free Skaro #493 – Click here to listen!

rfs493One week to go until Doctor Who Series 9 premieres, and what better way to rev up the hype engines than a rather cryptic prologue featuring P-Cap, Karn and Ohila, last seen in “The Night of the Doctor”? In fact, all manner of activity is rolling to the boil in the Who-o-sphere, including a new Game Maker app coming soon from the BBC, Time Squad dollies to adorn your desk or crying chamber, and other fun bric-a-brac. And speaking of bricks, our feature interview this week is with Pete Hickman, BBC Worldwide Producer of Digital Entertainment and Games and driving force behind the Doctor Who portion of LEGO Dimensions! Build high for happiness!
