Radio Free Skaro #489 – Revolution 9

Radio Free Skaro #489 – Click here to listen!

rfs489A new trailer for Series 9 of Doctor Who was released this week, simultaneously stoking and dampening the fires of Steven and Warren’s clinically insane theories regarding the upcoming Capaldis of Pompeii story/rumour/nonsense. But more lunacy awaits, with Tom Baker intoning that he is joining the Star Wars universe (!?), Hacette putting out a mammoth collection of Doctor Who books chronicling the history of the show from start to finish, and the Doctor Who Fan Show interviewing Titans Comics impresario Andrew James (link in the show notes). We also have an interview with Hugos person-in-charge David D’Antonio, who talks to Steven about the upcoming Worldcon in Spokane and the Hugo Awards taking place at said con. Tune into the pre and post Hugos live show next Saturday on UStream to see Steven and Warren debase themselves like grovelling insects on the newfangled invention of video!

rfs487Despite a somewhat sparse news list this week, the Three Who Rule managed to engage in ill-informed badinage for longer than was strictly necessary, covering exciting topics like a new and even more evil form of stats, and the differences between versions of Netflix. Thrilling!

rfs448And so begins the Dark Times, otherwise known as waiting a month and a bit after the end of Series 8 for the Doctor Who Christmas Special.

Larson, and most importantly, devoted the bulk of the episode to your Series 8 related questions with the return of Fluid Links! Burning inquiries, inquiring questions, questionable burning and more!

rfs447And with that, Series 8 of Doctor Who is over! After a radical turn towards darkness and drama it all came together with “Death in Heaven,” the final episode of the series and the P-Capstone on the 12th Doctor’s inaugural year. From the machinations of Missy (AKA The Master) to the glorious fake-out of Jenna Coleman as the Doctor in the opening titles all the way to…well, there’s some Cyber-shenanigans which the Three Who Rule cover in great detail. And as a bonus, we have an Long Island Who report from The Memory Cheats and Doctor Who: Mostly Harmless Cutaway co-host (and all around fine gent) Josh Zimon!

rfs446The penultimate episode of Series 8 is upon us, with Cybermen, the afterlife, and Missy, who is revealed as….well, you should certainly watch “Dark Water” (penned by Steven Moffat and directed by Rachel Talalay) before listening to the Three Who Rule expound upon the contents therein, or risk a mega-spoiler of cataclysmic magnitude. Have you watched? Good. Then enjoy our banter on the excellent direction, subtle performances, and the sometimes….excited reaction of certain segments of fandom when a beloved character takes a a sharp right turn into a different form. Next week, the finale, “Death in Heaven”, and news from Long Island Who!

Radio Free Skaro #445 – Can’t See The Forest For The Trees

Radio Free Skaro #445 – Click here to listen!

rfs445“In the Forest Of The Night” already looks to be one of the most polarizing episodes of Series 8, and there’s no shortage of opinion on this week’s Radio Free Skaro to go around. Along with Steven and Warren, Nerdist wordsmith Kyle Anderson joined in (pinch-hitting for an unavailable Chris) to take a look at a story about…well, trees. Warren also interviewed Rachel Talalay, the director of both “Dark Water” and “Death in Heaven”, the penultimate and final episodes of the series, and her thoughts on Doctor Who, the differences between directing for UK and American television, and a whole host of other topics are here for you to enjoy. Plus stats, general annoyance about the lack of a 5″ P-Cap action dollie, audio news, and all manner of jaunty amusement await you!
