Radio Free Skaro #575 – Beyond the Valley of the Thals


Download MP3

With new Who slowly ambling towards our eyeballs, the news pace has picked up somewhat, with publicity stills, tantalizing details concerning Ice Warriors, and the release of the 1999 charity special “The Curse of Fatal Death” on Youtube (otherwise known as ‘streaming VHS’)! But this is a mere tease, the frothiest of fripperies, the lightest of garnishes (and so forth, please get on with it) to the reappearance of one Kyle Anderson, Nerdist scribbler and all-around fine fellow, as we complete our commentary of….The Daleks!

rfs467Steven, Warren and Chip are back this week with a news list that could charitably be described as anemic, though it also covers the charitable doings of one Peter Capaldi and goes from Comic Relief to comic books to conventions and…well, not a lot more. It is the slow time for Doctor Who, after all. BUT! There is also a commentary track for Episode 4 of Series 8, “Listen”, featuring Steven, Warren, Chris and Telos AM co-host (and host of Colour Separation Overlay!) and all around fine gentleman Lindsey Mayers, examining the finer points of monsters, blankets and the end of the universe!

Radio Free Skaro #357 – Wiped Clean By The Wrath of Pamela Nash

Radio Free Skaro #357 – Click here to listen!

Just as Doctor Who is missing episodes from its archive, the Three Who Rule are missing Chris this week. But instead of providing you with a telesnap reconstruction of Pedantor, we bring to you instead an interview with Richard Molesworth, author of Wiped!, the second edition of which is hitting bookshelves soon. Steven and Richard discuss all there is to talk about regarding missing episodes, including recent discoveries, mystery in Sierra Leone, and what’s being done to hopefully find more episodes in the future. Warren and Steven also plough through a news list featuring discussion of conventions, Series 7b news, and outrage at the continued absence of a Bill Filer action figure.

Radio Free Skaro #246 – Phantom Of The Optera

After an almost three month wait, there was some new Doctor Who content to discuss in the form of two short scenes written for the BBC’s Red Nose Day coverage. As well, news hit the wire we’ll be getting a little extra Who in the form of prequel mini-episodes for a few Series 6 stories. Such an occasion always attracts guests, and so Luke from TMDWP drops in to share his two cents, while also ably aiding the Three Who Rule in slicing, dicing and dissecting the Doctor Who career of director Richard Martin. Martin directed several early Hartnell stories, but whether he directed them well or not was the main point of the discussion…

A week later than intended, the Three Who Rule dive into a commentary this episode with a re-watch of the 2010 Doctor Who Christmas special “A Christmas Carol”. Does it still hold up? Is it Christmassy enough? Too Christmassy? Has the shark won any more fans over? So many questions. Also, news of the week is hashed about, with particular attention paid to some forthcoming DVD releases. Also, boots are mentioning in passing, along with Beth Willis.
