Radio Free Skaro #576 – The Fisher King


Download MP3

We’re in the final stretch run of The Year (and a bit) of No Doctor Who, as Series 10 is less than two weeks away! There’s spoiler-free talk of synopses, the character of Bill Potts is revealed to be gay (hooray!), and there are various promotional things happening in and around the premiere of “The Pilot” on April 15. And we take our last look inside the Miniscope for this year with a detailed analysis of the works of writer David Fisher, author of four stories from the later Tom Baker era!

Radio Free Skaro #234 – Grimwade’s Syndrome

Radio Free Skaro #234 – Click here to listen
Gally news, casting details, and not-LEGO Doctor Who figures….all of which prefigured the cogent analysis and detailed examination of the (Doctor Who) career of one Peter Grimwade, one of the few polymaths to both write and direct for Doctor Who. With highlights such as Earthshock and lowlights like Time-Flight, Grimwade’s output was grist for the mill of the Three Who Rule.
