Radio Free Skaro #526 – The Twin Dilemma


Download MP3

rfs526New Doctor Who! A whole two minutes of it, featuring just-announced new companion Pearl Mackie, AKA Bill, AKA AsBill (according to some Wags of Fandom.) We’ll dive into what the Three Who Rule think of the Doctor’s new best friend given the tiniest of morsels with which to analyze her origins and attitudes, as well as swim deeply into the fetid waters of stats, from whose rotten grip no-one escapes unscathed. Also comics, Target books, confusing DVD releases, and a commentary for “The Zygon Inversion” with The Doctor Who Fan Show’s Christel Dee!

rfs525Gallifrey! Yes, the yearly ticket scramble and subsequent endorphin rush that is the Gallifrey One pass-purchasing passel of pugilism has once again come and gone, with nearly 3300 tickets sold. But that’s nearly a year away, and in present Earth time there is a Torchwood comic and, unfortunately, the death of Roj Blake himself, Gareth Thomas. And! We have a commentary for “The Zygon Invasion, with Uncanny Magazine editor and Verity podcaster Lynne M. Thomas!

Radio Free Skaro #523 – Girl, You’ll Be A Woman Soon


Download MP3

rfs523Japes, buffoonery and falsehoods dominate the news this week, with beloved entertainer and Deadite murderer Bruce Campbell claiming he’ll be the next Doctor..all in service of April Fool’s Day. What a card! And bless him for trying because there’s almost nothing else happening as the Year of No Who limps along. However, we at RFS are doing our part to fill the gap with our Series 9 commentaries, including this week’s look at “The Girl Who Died” with Alyssa from Whovian Feminism!
