Radio Free Skaro #669 – Nicholas of the Quancing Briggs


Download MP3

Don’t think for one minute that a lack of Doctor Who is going to stop us from examining the viewing figures for “Resolution” in staggering (some would say pointless) detail, along with the surprising return of Doctor Who to Twitch, new Gallifrey One guests (including RFS favourites like directors Wayne Yip and Rachel Talalay), and most importantly an interview with the Man of A Thousand Voices (and of course the Daleks), Nicholas Briggs! Listen or be exterminated!

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!

rfs422A shocking (O’ the Quawncing Grig) amount of news this week, including the inclusion of Tank Girl director Rachel Talalay as a Series Eight helmer for two episodes, Doctor Who returning to Lanzorate for the aforementioned Series Eight, A Doctor Who comics Humble Bundle, and more! By far the coolest news of the week, at least for production nerds such as ourselves, was the release by Restoration Team member Paul Vanezis of a behind the scenes video showing the process of cleaning up and transferring the recently discovered film print of Enemy of World. Sprockets! Gears! Troughton on a beach! And speaking of Troughton, this week’s commentary is the all-time classic Tomb of the Cybermen! Sit back, warm up a mug of your favourite beverage, and enjoy as Cyril Shaps and some other people battle the second-deadliest foe in the Whoniverse! We also announce the winner of our RFS Giveaway contest for a signed copy of Paul Cornell’s “The Severed Streets”!
