Radio Free Skaro #576 – The Fisher King


Download MP3

We’re in the final stretch run of The Year (and a bit) of No Doctor Who, as Series 10 is less than two weeks away! There’s spoiler-free talk of synopses, the character of Bill Potts is revealed to be gay (hooray!), and there are various promotional things happening in and around the premiere of “The Pilot” on April 15. And we take our last look inside the Miniscope for this year with a detailed analysis of the works of writer David Fisher, author of four stories from the later Tom Baker era!

Radio Free Skaro #400 – Matt Finish

Radio Free Skaro #400 – Click here to listen!

rfs400From its origins on a humble Skype connection in 2006 to the quasi-shabby status it endures today, Radio Free Skaro has tried to entertain, inform and educate its listeners about the wonderful world of Doctor Who. And in this, its 400th episode, it may have finally succeeded. Joining us for a retrospective roundtable on the Matt Smith era were Chris and Laura Mead of the Oodcast, Luke Harrison of TMDWP, Kyle Anderson of the Doctor Who: The Writer’s Room (and Nerdist fame) and Chip, the Two Minute Time Lord. What did these luminaries, and to a much lesser extent, Steven, Warren, and Chris think of Matt Smith’s run as the Doctor? You’ll just have to listen to find out. You’ll also have to endure some blather about stats beforehand. Vegetables before you get your dessert!
