Radio Free Skaro #587 – Death By Scotland


Download MP3

Gloom, doom, and light-eating tentacle dogs are the topic du jour for the Three Who Rule, as they viewed the Rona Munro penned, Charles Palmer helmed “The Eaters of Light” and formed cogent, well reasoned analyses of the third to last episode of Series 10, and didn’t at all speculate wildly about Mondasian Cybermen, bearded former Masters, Missy’s weird turn towards mercy and more. And speaking of Masters, Big Finish just announced that Derek Jacobi will return to his “Utopia” role as the Doctor’s best enemy with a new series of “War Master” audios, which recent BF convert Warren is feverishly anticipating! Plus Moffatt and Chibnall interviews, side glances at Funk Pops, and…yes, stats. Now go eat a fried Mars Bar and stand around on a dark Scottish moor contemplating the futility of existence! Go on!

Video Free Skaro 006 – Zombies and Talk Shows

On this episode of Video Free Skaro, we profile “Mind My Brains, Darling!” a webseries made in the style of “Are You Being Served?” and other British comedies of the Seventies, but with zombies. We also debut “Tom Baker Tonight,” an exciting foray into late night variety programming by a tiny, maniacal Tom Baker action figure. All this and the latest news, reviews, and superfluous pictures of Jenna Louise Coleman!

Skaromantic Comedy, the sequel to Blue Meanie!

In what has become a Gally tradition (of two years), Warren has created another Doctor Who fan film for showing at Gallifrey and on the web. Skaromantic Comedy is the sequel to Blue Meanie, Warren’s first fan film. It’s a gripping tale of romance, mad science, beautiful women and Daleks, and you can watch it right here, right now!

Radio Free Skaro #212 – Let’s Do The Mindwarp Again

Radio Free Skaro #212 – Click here to listen

In this, the penultimate Radio Free Skaro Classic Series Commentary for the summer, the Three Who Rule lucked out with the second segment of the four-part trilogy known as The Trial of the Time Lord. Lucked out, you may well ask? Well, yes, for all three hosts were fairly unanimous in their praise of Mindwarp, and the Trial season as a whole, firm in their belief that Colin Baker’s tenure as The Doctor has been unfairly maligned over the years. Disagree? Listen to the commentary to see if you will be swayed…

Radio Free Skaro #194 – New Car Smell

Radio Free Skaro #194 – Click here to listen

The Daleks are back! And that’s…..well, middling. The Three Who Rule chewed over “Victory of the Daleks,” including the new, sleek models that have all of fandom agog with either love or hate, the WW2 models that instantly warmed our coal-black hearts, and the jowly presence of one Winston Churchill, saviour of Britain. Still, it’s thankfully no “Daleks in Manhattan”. Geronim-ate!

Radio Free Skaro #180 – Potions? Seriously?! Potions?

Radio Free Skaro #180 – Click here to listen

It had to happen sooner or later, so the Three Who Rule ripped the bandage off by recording a commentary for The End of Time Part One, that neo-classic from Christmas 2009 containing such classic Who elements as magic potions, laser hands, randy senior citizens and Smell-O-Vision. Did the episode fare better this time round after the scolding it received in Radio Free Skaro 174? You decide. Also discussed was news of Gaiman, gay men, and gained men, er, companions. Onwards!

While spoiler hunters will have known the name of Matt Smith’s debut episode, the other two were well-kept secrets. Beginning Matt Smith’s premiere series will be The Eleventh Hour, penned by Steven Moffat and a wonderful double entendre, followed by The Beast Below also by Moffat, while episode 3 will see the return of the Daleks in Mark Gatiss’ Victory of the Daleks. Series Fnarg will begin transmission in Spring 2010.
