Radio Free Skaro #633 – The Erato Adventures of Hercules


Download MP3

The weather is warm, the flowers are blooming and the Doctor Who news is…sparse. Almost non-existent in fact, other than delicious morsels like the Series 9 soundtrack arriving in our eardrums, an official announcement on that US “Genesis of the Daleks” cinema screening on June 11, and of course what you’ve all been waiting for, the second part of our Christopher Barry miniscope, featuring his work on “The Mutants”, “Robot”, “The Brain of Morbius” and perennial favorite (to Chris, at any rate) “The Creature from the Pit”!

One of the most prolific directors in Doctor Who history finally gets his time in the Miniscope as the Three Who Rule look at the first half of the career of Christopher Barry, breaking down his work on “The Daleks”, “The Rescue”, “The Romans”, the missing stories “The Savages” and “The Power of the Daleks” (as best as possible), and concluding with 1971’s “The Daemons”. Also, while Warren is in New York, news on Gallifrey One, BBC Wales, and upcoming cinema screenings of “Genesis of the Daleks”…

Yes, enjoy the Three Who Rule’s shaky insights as we field questions from you, the listeners!
