Radio Free Skaro #499 – Knightmare On Elm Street

Radio Free Skaro #499 – Click here to listen!

rfs499The Doctor reunites with Ashildr/Me…but is she a friend of an enemy? More to the point, was “The Woman Who Lived” better or worse than the episode that preceded it, “The Girl Who Died?” Also, is it possible to contain the sheer amount of squee generated when Sir John Hurt was announced as a guest at Gallifrey One? Perhaps the antidote (or “anti-squee”, if you will) is an upcoming K-9 film…co-starring Omega? The mind reels! Anyway, listen on, and look out, England, Steven and Warren are coming to visit you next week!

Radio Free Skaro #498 – Suddenly Susan

Radio Free Skaro #498 – Click here to listen!

rfs498Fandom held its collective breath to witness the return of The Doctor’s granddaughter Susan, in the form of Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams, and instead of that half-baked and silly theory they got a cracking good story about Vikings, immortality and clarity regarding the thorny Visage De Capaldi issue that has plagued us since Deep Breath. Gripping stuff! And a good thing too as the news is very sparse this week, consisting of important action dolly matters and the DVD release of a (more or less) fan film from 20 years ago. Tune in, won’t you?

Radio Free Skaro #497 – Click here to listen!

rfs497“Before the Flood” left Warren baffled and Steven and Chris intrigued, but what else did your three hosts think of the second episode of Toby Whitehouse’s brain-twisting two-parter? Did the paradoxes and guitar solos excite or infuriate them? More to the point, what developments in both LEGO, Big Finish audios and increasingly pointless DVD covers caught their eye? WHAT I ASK YOU!? Listen, and find out!

Radio Free Skaro #496 – The Underwater Menace

Radio Free Skaro #496 – Click here to listen!

rfs496Doctor Who dives beneath the waves for “Under the Lake,” a base under siege story with ghosts, flash cards and British Sign Language….but what did Steven, Warren and Chris think of the first part of this soggy saga? More to the point, what is their hot take on “Class,” the just announced Doctor Who spin-off to be produced next year by BBC Wales(possibly at the expense of Doctor Who)? And as if that wasn’t enough, we also have Steven interviewing Clara Oswald herself, Jenna Coleman, recorded live onstage at Edmonton Expo!
