Radio Free Skaro #564 – At Long Last, Wendy Padbury


Download MP3

For seemingly every single Doctor Who convention that one or all of the Three Who Rule have ever attended, Wendy Padbury has been there. Standing next to them in lines, walking past them in the hallway, but never, ever a guest on Radio Free Skaro. Until today! Ms. Padbury joins a panel of fine thespians (and Doctor Who companions) Anneke Wills, Deborah Watling, Louise Jameson, and Lisa Greenwood (and all interviewed by our very own Steven) recorded at Chicago TARDIS from this past November!

rfs560It’s the week before the Advent of Doctor Mysteriousness, and so the news is a little light as fandom sits in the eye of the hurricane. But there is word of both Toby Whithouse musing on Twitter about his upcoming Series 10 episode, and Leela joining the War Doctor in his audio adventures in the new year! And speaking of Leela, both Louise Jameson and John Leeson are featured this week as Steven interviewed them at the recent Chicago TARDIS convention! Savage Tin Doggerel, ahoy!

And do keep listening to our daily Advent Fluid Links, which get more Christmas-y by the day!

rfs546This week, we begin the first of a two-part commentary for “The Two Doctors”, a Robert Holmes romp with Two, Six, hipster cannibals, tall Sontarans, and Elton John as a disco scientist. Enticing! But before the main event, the Three Who Rule reflect on the 50th anniversaries of both Star Trek and The Prisoner, two shows that along side Doctor Who were seminal viewing experiences for their younger selves. Dive into the past with us, won’t you?

rfs521With literally no news whatsoever this week in the world of Doctor Who, our attention wanders to gatherings of the nerd tribes, specifically this weekend at (Re)generation Who in Maryland…and Peter Capaldi making an appearance at La Mole Comic Con in Mexico! Doctor Who (aka “Doctor Misterio” in Mexico) is so popular he was mobbed at the airport by adoring fans…as is only right and proper. And we continue our Series 9 commentaries with Alisa Stern of Doctor Puppet (known in Mexico as “Doctor Marioneta”) as we dive…Under The Lake!
