Radio Free Skaro #680 – The Planet That Slept


Download MP3

A new set of shiny Blu-ray discs stuffed with Doctor Who content is on its way to store shelves in the form of the Season 18 box set, the third such season set from BBC Studios. So we decided to talk again to Russell Minton, executive producer of the whole range for BBC Studios, about the Season 18 set, and about the future of the range in general. There is also talk of special screenings for “Logopolis” (in the US) and “The Macra Terror” (in the UK) that occurred this past week, and Bradley Walsh posing for selfies with everyone during some public filming for Series 12 in Wales!

Radio Free Skaro #679 – A Field In Wales


Download MP3

It’s a Radio Free Skaro episode to lose sleep over, quite literally this week, as Steven and Chris tackle the news of the week as well as daylight saving time while Warren, absent for various reasons, sits content in his time eddy, away from proceedings. The main event this week, though, is an interview recorded at Gallifrey One this past February with noted director Ben Wheatley, who helmed “Deep Breath” and “Into The Dalek” to usher in the Peter Capaldi era!

Radio Free Skaro #678 – Poster Child


Download MP3

It was a sad week in the Doctor Who fandom community as it lost Jennifer Adams Kelley, a titan involved with North American conventions since the 1990s. We pay tribute to her and her legacy with two of her dearest friends and fellow convention organizers, Shaun Lyon and Steve Hill. Graeme Curry, writer of “The Happiness Patrol”, also passed away all too soon. But to hopefully cheer us all up, we also present to you an interview from Gallifrey One with Radio Times Doctor Who poster artist and photographer Stuart Manning!
