rfs531It’s the return of the Miniscope! The segment wherein the Three Who Rule discuss the contributions of notable creator folk throughout the history of Doctor Who, and to welcome back this popular segment, we talk about showrunner-designate Chris Chibnall’s prior writing efforts in Doctor Who. Also, our friend Chip from the Two-Minute Time Lord drops by for the news, which is filled with talk about issue 500 of the venerable Doctor Who Magazine, including an excellent interview with current showrunner Steven Moffat. Next week: the return of Fluid Links!

It was a banner week for Doctor Who leading up the programme’s 47th anniversary celebrations on November 23, with massive news on both sides of the Atlantic in the forms of a new trailer for A Christmas Carol, a same-day broadcast date in the US, and Matt Smith’s landmark appearance on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. All of these events and more were discussed at great length by the Three Who Rule, amongst other notable topics (including Ian Levine’s Shada), capped off by a rollicking commentary on the Series 5 episode “Cold Blood”. Enjoy, and Happy Birthday, Doctor Who!

The news of a fourth series of Torchwood becoming a reality dropped like a bomb in the Doctor Who fandom world, as many had written off the idea once FOX stepped away from the table. With Warren unavailable, Steven and Chris are joined by Chip from the Two-minute Time Lord podcast to talk about Torchwood, cover the latest episode of Doctor Who (Gareth Roberts’ “The Lodger”), as well as the news of the week. Will this be another Planet of the Dead, or will Gareth Roberts redeem himself in the eyes of the RFS gang, particularly the relentlessly unforgiving Chris? What does our esteemed guest think of the latest Who?

An unconventional artist anchored an unusual episode as “Vincent and the Doctor”, written by Richard Curtis, graced our screens this week. Reaction on the internet made it seem like everyone either loved or hated the episode, but the Three Who Rule were…well, you’ll just have to listen to the episode to find out. However, Vincent and the Doctor was but one episode released this week thanks to City of the Daleks hitting computer screens…

With Warren in the Galapagos Islands unleashing his fiendish experiments to make the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles a reality, Radio Free Skaro celebrates its 200th episode, keeping things low key and just having a couple old friends over for drinks. Neil Perryman and Simon Harries from Tachyon TV join in the fun with a look at not only the current episode of Doctor Who, Cold Blood, but the gang also gabs about Series 5 as it stands thus far. A bonus treat of some kind words provided by some of our listeners rounds out this milestone episode. Onward to the next 200!

Radio Free Skaro #199 – Doctor Who and the Homo Reptilia

Radio Free Skaro #199 – Click here to listen

It shaped up to be a good week for the Three Who Rule on account of the return of some of their favourite classic series monsters, the Silurians (aka Eocenes, aka Homo Reptilia). “The Hungry Earth”, the episode in which they made their first successful appearance in 40 years (see what we did there?), also had a distinctly classic feel to it, making one almost feel like we were watching Jon Pertwee’s Doctor and UNIT battling with cave monsters in the 1970s (aka the 1980s). Onwards!
