A rather staggering pile of Doctor Who news this week, including the announcement of all the new writers and directors for Series 11, a Bill action dolly becomes a little more real, Doctor #5’s first season gets the Blu-ray treatment, and more Doctor Who convention news than you can shake a stick at! And just for you, dear listeners, the first of a two-part Miniscope featuring the dynamic duo of writers Bob Baker and Dave Martin, AKA the Bristol Boys! A Miniscope? Now this is outrageous!

Cast your minds back to the early days of Radio Free Skaro when there just hosts, Steven and Warren, and they would press record and then plan what they were going to talk about? Well, this episode is a throwback to those pre-smartphone days of the podcast, with Steven and Warren convening in a hotel room in San Jose, CA (home of WorldCon 76), along with guests Jason Snell, Helene Wecker, and Erika Ensign, to talk about how Doctor Who became a part of our lives, and where the show is going from here. What better way to celebrate our twelfth anniversary!

It’s a lazy August weekend as Radio Free Skaro approaches its twelfth(!) aniversary, but soon one Mr. David Tennant will grace the home planet of the Three Who Rule as he will be joining fellow Doctor Matt Smith at Edmonton Expo in September! Plus we have news of new E-Space adventures with the Season 18 time team (in Big Finish form), big-scale Thirteenth Doctor action dolly fun (in Big Chief form), and the main event, a Classic Series commentary for Peter Davison’s debut story, “Castrovalva”!
