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!

The last (sniff) stats update for the season, Gallifrey One news, Dalek novelizations, and Dalek vinyl releases are all in the mix in this week’s news, but the meat of the matter is an interview with director Wayne Yip, who ushered New Year’s special “Resolution” onto our screens! Join Mr. Yip as he discusses stunt driving pod cars, remote control Daleks, the logistics of directing, and more!

Have you ever wanted to see block transfer computation on the big screen? Your time has come as “Logopolis” hits theatres this March in the US and the BFI in February in advance of the release of the Doctor Who Season 18 box set! And as if that isn’t enough deep dive craziness, Big Finish is going to fill your summer with stories of the War Master and the Eighth Doctor politely nodding at each other and perhaps battling for the fate of the universe. Plus tales of tat, accolades and awards, and an interview from Chicago TARDIS with Vincent Van Gogh himself, actor Tony Curran!

rfs530Comics, commentaries, audio adventures (both new and rumoured) and a celebration of Doctor Who’s many female scientists make for a busier newslist than usual in this, The Year With No Doctor Who, and this week you even get bonus tut-tutting about Target book arrangements and criminal dips to black on CraveTV’s streaming editions of the programme. A summons to the high court of the League of Fandom is in the maoi and should be arriving at their offices soon, fear not. And if that made-up legal nonsense doesn’t engage you, how about a commentary for “Face the Raven” with Deb Stanish of Verity! fame and Alyssa of Whovian Feminism?

rfs503And so we come to the end of Clara Oswald, one of the most consequential companions in the history of Doctor Who and the focus of “Face The Raven,” the third to last story in Series 9. What did the Three Who Rule think of Clara’s departure, writer Sarah Dollard’s debut, and the return of Rigsy? And, as the Three catch up on various news items of the past couple weeks, what of stats, comics, DVDs and other frip-frap? Next week, Steven calls in from Chicago TARDIS and we look at “Heaven Sent,” the Capaldi one-hander leading into the Series 9 finale. Woot!

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!
