rfs553Daleks! Cybermen! And Class! Yes, We’ve got news of “The Power of the Daleks”, which will make it to Canadian cinemas later than everywhere else (as is right and proper, or at least expected), and our (spoiler time stamped) review of Class Episode 3, “Nightvisiting”! But the main event is a look at the legacy of Cybermen creators Kit Pedler and Gerry Davis with Blue Box Podcast host J.R. Southall in…the Miniscope!

rfs552At long last, Class is here! Yes, two episodes of the newest spin-off of Doctor Who have landed (in the UK and Canada) and the Three Who Rule have their thoughts to share with you…unless you wish not to hear them, being in the United States! We’ve conveniently put bridging music before and after our review, and put the time of said review in the show notes, for you, our American listeners (who don’t download tv shows like fiendish criminal vandals). Besides that, we also have action dolly news, confirmation of Missy in Series 10 of Doctor Who, a discussion by three middle-aged nerds about the viewing habits of millennials, and more!

rfs551Chip, of the currently on hiatus Two-Minute Time Lord, current Whovian gadabout, and man about town rejoins Two of the Three Who Rule (Chris is still punching his liver with an assortment of British liquids) for a brief sojourn through a paltry news list this week! Dribbles of info about Class (which premieres October 22 in various parts of the Commonwealth)…and not much else. But wait! Chris travels from the past to the present to comment on the past (confused? We are) as RFS is plagued by “The Curse…of Fenric”!

rfs550With New York Comic-Con upon us, the Doctor Who news is (at last) coming fast and furious with two(!) trailers for Class out in the wild and a panel featuring Steven Moffat, Peter Capaldi, Matt Lucas, Brian Minchin and new companion Pearl Mackie at the con teasing what’s in store for the Christmas special and beyond! And with Chris off in the UK foraging for beer and scotch eggs, it was up to friend of the show Chip Sudderth to ably assume the third chair to cogitate upon matters Who with the Two Who Rule. We also have a report from Kim and Sage of Head Over Feels direct from NYCC! It’s a cornucopia of news on this, the most Canadian of Thanksgivings.
