rfs495We’re headed back to Skaro for “The Witch’s Familiar”, the second part of the opening story of Series 9, and the Three Who Rule have thoughts, opinions, and perspectives to share on the latest thread in the grand tapestry that is the life of Ernest Q. Davros. (Yes, that’s his name, but shhh, SPOILERS.) Despite the lack of stats, as is only right and proper, there was also news of conventions, Minecraft Doctor Who, and yes…a 5 inch Missy dolly or two.

Radio Free Skaro #486 – Click here to listen!

rfs486Conventions and clips dominate the news, with events in Germany, Australia and of course goings on concerning the upcoming Long Island Who, but also a look back at the New Adventures era through the fine folk at Myth Makers and a very…old-fashioned look through newsreel footage at the wedding of Jon Pertwee. The Man Himself is also the subject of a recently unearthed (and Youtubed) documentary, not to mention the focus of much praise from current TARDIS resident Peter Capaldi, who praises Three in an interview with Christel Dee on the Doctor Who Fan Show. All mere prelude to the return of Fluid Links, where we answer your questions about the program, no matter how silly or sublime!

Radio Free Skaro #482 – Click here to listen!

rfs482In a move sure to shake the very foundations of audio drama, Big Finish is introducing new series Doctor Who characters into the BF-i-verse, and River Song will be the tip of the proverbial spear in this assault of awesomeness. That was but one (but probably the coolest) bit of news this week, including San Diego Comic Con ruminations, Chicago TARDIS news and various other informational nuggets. But our interview this week is with Chicago TARDIS and Gallifrey Base impresario and overall fine fellow Steven Hill, who discusses his Red, White and Who book project chronicling the adventures of the good Doctor in the United States of America. U.S.A.! U.S.A.! And so forth.
