Download MP3

This week on Radio Free Skaro, it’s time for the nation’s favourite game show* (*not an actual game show) as we dive headlong into another edition of the Miniscope. This week, it’s director Ed Bazalgette, who guided the recent episodes “The Girl Who Died”, “The Woman Who Lived”, and “The Return of Doctor Mysterio” into port. What did the Three Who Rule think of the former guitarist from the 1980s band The Vapors and his work in Doctor Who? Listen and find out! Also, with Doctor Who being produced under a cone of silence as of late, early discussion veers from Doctor Who on Twitch to Amazon reviews to Star Wars to Star Trek and so on. Be warned.

The Quest is the Quest, if by quest you mean watching the 1978 classic series story “Underworld” and getting through it without great suffering. We kid – two thirds of the Three Who Rule are devout fans of this Tom Baker gem. Will the final third turn his frown upside down? Also, the classic series continues to delight on Twitch, the modern series is on BBC iPlayer, and the TV broadcast home of Doctor Who in Canada is regenerating…

(Listen to the interview with Steven starting at 30:36; JR Southall joins Steven later to discuss what Paul said). Elsewhere, Doctor Who on Twitch has been an unprecedented success, launching new memes and generating fresh enthusiasm amongst a whole new generation of Doctor Who fans!
