Radio Free Skaro #683 – Greyscale Separation Overlay


Download MP3

There’s extraordinarily little in the way of news this week, other than the fact that your Time Team (and a big ‘ol crew) are currently shooting Series 12 and saying nothing about it. But if you said to yourself “hoo boy would I like to hear people talking about insect movement, possibly by Roslyn de Winter,” are you in for a treat! Yes, the Three Who Rule are doing a Classic Series Commentary for the 1965 story “The Web Planet” in all it’s ambitious flawed glory, right here on this podchannel! Settle into a cocoon of mucus and nutrients and enjoy!

Radio Free Skaro #663 – Witchfinder Pursuivant


Download MP3

It’s time to find some witches with the Three Who Rule as Doctor Who and the gang/team/fam navigate superstition, 17th century sexual politics and an extremely flirtatious King James in “The Witchfinders”! Plus stats, which sounds uncomfortably close to “Satan,” actual Satan with Tom Baker adapting his barking mad idea “Scratchman” into a novel, Big Finish scheduling their releases well into the End Times, and surely the greatest harbinger of the Apocalypse, a new 13th Doctor Funko Pop without a coat. WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN!?! NO COAT!!

The Doctor and her Time Pals sign up as temporary wage scoundrels at the titular “Kerblam!” (aka Space Amazon) and the Three Who Rule are here to tell you what they thought of this treatise on modern work, robots and bubble wrap along with news, stats, a special shift from Christmas to New Year’s Day and more! So fire up this podcast and get in line for Black Friday, Cyber Monday and whatever other arbitrary celebration of consumerism keeps annoying “teammates” from pestering you about productivity!

Radio Free Skaro #661 – The Undeadly Assassins


Download MP3

On the 100th anniversary of the Armistice being signed, it seemed fitting on the day of Remembrance that the tone of this week’s Doctor Who struck a more sombre tone, and that’s exactly what we got in “Demons of the Punjab”, written by Vinay Patel. The Three Who Rule give their thoughts on the episode, as well as all the news of the week that was, including an expanded stats section!

Radio Free Skaro #658 – The Spirit of Rosa


Download MP3

For a show about time travel, Doctor Who doesn’t really go deep on matters historical, preferring a quick tour and a laugh to really getting into events as they unfold. But that changed this week with “Rosa,” a look at how civil rights hero Rosa Parks herself changed the world, and how the Doctor and the Time Team deal with both alien threats and a very different (but also somewhat familiar) world to 2018. What did Steven, Warren, and Chris think of the episode? And will a very special addition to the stats report cause Warren to finally lose what’s left of his mind?
