rfs539With San Diego Comic-Con in full swing as of this recording, there’s…well, news of a sort at any rate. David Tennant will appear in Family Guy as the Tenth Doctor (yay?), various doodads and cards are available at SDCC (getting warmer) and non-Who silliness like a new Star Trek TV series trailer (yay!) along with Dirk Gently (yaaaaa…I dunno.) But why concentrate on the present when you can dive decades into the past with director Morris Barry in…the Miniscope!

rfs500THIS…IS…ENGLAND! At least it is for Steven, Warren, and Erika, who with the help of the lovely Simon Harries are currently wandering around Albion, fighting dinosaurs, ATMOS, Autons and jet lag as they drool like wide-eyed schoolchildren at famous sights and the drearily commonplace. But first, Chris joins Warren and Steven live from the colonies to review “The Zygon Invasion,” the first of a two-part sucker-punch starring everyone’s favorite phallic shapeshifters. All this and dollies, Tate and Tennant in audio form and more! Next week, more adventures in England, Wales and parts in between!

Radio Free Skaro #452 – In the Nick of Time

Radio Free Skaro #452 – Click here to listen!

rfs452It’s beginning to feel a lot like Last Christmas, which is dominating both our thoughts and the promotional efforts of the BBC Publicity department. Maybe that’s why most of our news is focused on that upcoming holiday where they show a new Doctor Who story and some other, largely irrelevant events rides its coattails. Plus there’s news of a Doctor Who theme park, which is greeted by the confusion and derision only three middle aged nerds with no concept of what the kids today are into could muster. All that questionable content, and an interview from Chicago TARDIS with the voice of the Daleks, Cybermen and countless other creatures, Nick Briggs, who is also one of the main creative forces behind Big Finish! What are you waiting for?

Gallifrey One 2015 Guest Update – Alex Kingston

g26frontpage

A big guest announcement today for the 26th edition of the Gallifrey One convention in February!

alexkingston
Alex Kingston first appeared in Doctor Who in 2008’s “Silence in the Library”, which was actually the last story for her character River Song. Since then, River’s timey wimey life has played out in reverse (for the most part) over the course of several episodes opposite Matt Smith’s Eleventh Doctor, culminating in her final appearance (to date) in the 2013 episode “The Name of the Doctor”. This is Alex’s first appearance at Gallifrey One.

Radio Free Skaro at Chicago TARDIS 2011

Chicago TARDIS, the Midwest’s premier Doctor Who convention, announced today that Alex Kingston, River Song herself, will be a guest at the upcoming 2011 edition of the convention which takes place from November 25-27 at the Westin Lombard Yorkton Center in Lombard, IL. Kingston joins previously announced guests Peter Davison, Ben Aaronovitch, Nick Briggs, Jason Haigh-Ellery, Benjamin Cook, Beth Chalmers, Arnold T. Blumberg, and Toby Hadoke.

Radio Free Skaro has in past provided extensive coverage of Gallifrey One, the world’s preeminent Doctor Who convention which takes place in Los Angeles every February, and we’re pleased to say that we will be doing the same for Chicago TARDIS this year. One of our number, Steven, will be in attendance at the convention, talking to the guests and attendees and gathering interviews and such for Radio Free Skaro podcasts. It will be a grand time, and we hope that as many of you who listen to our podcasts can make it down to Chicago on Thanksgiving weekend.

Check out the Chicago TARDIS website for more details about the convention!

Doctor Who on The Today Show on NBC

Meredith Vieira of the Today Show on NBC dropped by the Doctor Who studios in Cardiff recently to, amongst other things, appear in a cameo on an upcoming episode of Doctor Who. Here’s her report as put together by the BBC team and aired on NBC’S Today Show on Monday, May 9.

SPOILER WARNING: There are some pretty big spoilers for an upcoming Doctor Who episode in parts of the first video. If you want to look away and plug your ears, do so from 0:36-0:50, and 5:15-5:23 (the latter comprises part of Vieira’s actual onscreen appearance on what looks to be Episode 8).

Radio Free Skaro #249 – Cary On Tristram

Radio Free Skaro #249 – Click here to listen

For the first time in what seems like a very long while, the Three Who Rule tackle a Miniscope segment all on their own without the aid of a special (and probably much better informed) guest. The subject? Musician Tristram Cary, whose moody melodies and bouncy ballads helped underscore many a 1960s Doctor Who serial. Even the most taciturn of individuals could find something to say about Cary’s iconic work. And if that wasn’t enough to fill an episode, there’s a bundle of press launch news from both sides of the Atlantic to help form another jam packed, spoiler-free episode of Radio Free Skaro.
