Radio Free Skaro #361 – The Borings of Akhaten

Radio Free Skaro #361 – Click here to listen!

After a rollicking opening to Series 7B last week, we were treated to a new episode in “The Rings of Akhaten” that received almost no love from any of the Three Who Rule. In fact, only one person had something nice to say about it, and you’ll never guess who! The episode may have left a bad taste in everyone’s mouth, but the return of a full stats report, and a return of our new, impromptu game called “Guess the Stats!”, proved to be a splash of minty, mouthwashy goodness! That, and talk of the 50th Anniversary special, Christopher Eccleston, DVD news, and an endless list of Doctor Who t-shirt ideas, makes clear that it’s not where you start, but where you finish. Next week: Ice Warriorssss…

The Doctor Who classic series DVD range is approaching the end of its run, but not before a few momentous releases hit the shelves around the world in celebration of the programme’s 50th anniversary. Who better to discuss what’s to come than the very folks who have restored and enhanced Doctor Who in DVD form for the past several years? We present to you the Enlightenment DVD panel from Gallifrey One, with commissioning editor Dan Hall, Restoration Team founder Steve Roberts, documentary producer Ed Stradling, and writer/documentarian Nicholas Pegg. With The Tenth Planet, The Ice Warriors, and many other hotly anticipated releases discussed, this is not a panel to be missed! Also, our friend Luke from TMDWP drops by to tell the Three Who Rule about his experiences at his first ever Gallifrey One!

New Doctor Who! Yes, Asylum of the Daleks marked the return of the good Doctor and his erstwhile companions for the first time since last Christmas, and in high style with quite literally EVERY DALEK EVER making an appearance. What did the Three Who Rule think of Asylum? You’ll just have to tune in and find out, but suffice it to say their opinions were less than uniform. All this and Pond Life, an entirely too long rant about the BBC America specials, the universally beloved viewing figure recitation, and much more on this episode of RADIO! FREE! SKARO!

Day Two of Gally! And what a day of behind the scenes luminaries it was, with Doctor Who director Richard Senior (“Let’s Kill Hitler”), writer Simon Guerrier and the inestimable Steve Roberts of the Doctor Who Restoration Team rounding out the behind the scenes chatter. Plus the delightful mendicants from the Pharos Project stopped by to drink, swear and occasionally form a sentence. Drunktastic!
