Download MP3

It’s the weekend of American Thanksgiving, which can only mean one thing in the Doctor Who world – Chicago TARDIS! Steven once again represented the Three Who Rule in the midwest, getting interviews, meeting many Doctor Who fans, and generally creating mayhem (he was in bed by 11:00pm every night). And this episode features an onstage interview with Doctor the Fifth, Peter Davison, and Tegan Jovanka herself, Janet Fielding! Also, Paul Booth drops by to talk about the various news items of the week, including many exciting details about the new release of “Shada”!

As we hurtle towards Christmas, and more importantly, the premiere of “Twice Upon A Time”, the BBC has delivered a snippet of said story featuring one Peter Capaldi, David Bradley and Mark Gatiss trading badinage in Twelve’s TARDIS, and it is a delight. Also, Steven Moffat was announced to appear at the biggest Doctor Who convention in North America, Gallifrey One, to the general giddiness of the Three Who Rule. Besides all this news, we also have the second part of Warren’s interview with director Rachel Talalay, along with a look at one her stories for our final Second Chances segment with comedian and writer Riley Silverman!

Steven Moffat Announced as Guest for Gallifrey One 2018

Gallifrey One has made a major guest announcement for its upcoming 2018 edition of the world’s largest Doctor Who convention: Steven Moffat, head writer and executive producer of Doctor Who from 2010-2017, will be in attendance!

Moffat, the Emmy and BAFTA award winning writer of Doctor Who, Sherlock, and many other popular programmes, has been charge of Doctor Who since taking over from Russell T Davies in 2008. From the time his first series producing Doctor Who aired in 2010, to his departure from the show this Christmas in “Twice Upon a Time”, Moffat has overseen the show go from new cult hit to a worldwide sensation.

Moffat previously attended Gallifrey One in 2006, 2007, and 2008, and has always been a friend to the convention, appearing in several videos made especially for the convention.

Gallifrey One 2018 was already shaping up to be one of the best ever, and this announcement clinches it. Follow Radio Free Skaro, the official podcast of Gallifrey One, for more information, and we hope to see you all in Los Angeles in February 2018!
