Radio Free Skaro #681 – The Tree Won’t Harm You


Download MP3

With Brexit, the Mueller Report and many other swirls of uncertainty in our current climate, isn’t it nice to know that we can take you back to a more peaceful time, when all you had to worry about was predatory trees, crazed mine workers and a couple of renegade Time Lords? That’s right, we’re doing our first Classic Series Commentary of the year with “The Mark of the Rani!” Plus we have news from the Black Archive, Big Finish, and a chance for you (if you live in the UK) to work on Doctor Who!

One of the most prolific directors in Doctor Who history finally gets his time in the Miniscope as the Three Who Rule look at the first half of the career of Christopher Barry, breaking down his work on “The Daleks”, “The Rescue”, “The Romans”, the missing stories “The Savages” and “The Power of the Daleks” (as best as possible), and concluding with 1971’s “The Daemons”. Also, while Warren is in New York, news on Gallifrey One, BBC Wales, and upcoming cinema screenings of “Genesis of the Daleks”…
