rfs541It’s a bowl of mixed treats in the news list, from Peter Capaldi’s third anniversary to Class showrunner Patrick Ness being offered a chance to write for proper Doctor Who. Mysterious! Also Doctor Who Legacy, the TV Movie on Blu-Ray (sorta kinda), and a report from Warren who is attending Anglicon in Seattle. All this and the conclusion of our commentary for “The Web of Fear”! You will bow to the will of the Great Intelligence…or be destroyed! And make sure to tune in next week for our tenth anniversary special, where we reflect on anything other than ourselves! O Canada!

Radio Free Skaro #517 – Quel Dommage


Download MP3

rfs517It’s the post-Gally period, which means lots of pent-up news of middling interest, debates about terrible video games of yesteryear, silly spoofs and condescension towards Britain’s national treasures. But the treat of the week is a previously unaired interview with one Russell T. Davies from 2011, courtesy of writer and interviewer Jeffrey Berman. Jeffrey hosted a show seen locally in Los Angeles where he interviewed notable writers about their work and writing process. The first season aired in 2008, but while interviews were conducted in 2011 (including RTD) they have never been heard…until now! Enjoy!

rfs490Another Hugos has come and gone, and with it two-thirds of the Radio Free Skaro crew can cross “host pre and post show at the Hugos and ad-lib for almost a half hour during same” off their bucket list. Though the Hugos were…dogged with controversy, in the eye of the storm all was calm and in fact Steven and Warren (along with Verity’s own Erika Ensign) were pleased to attend their first Worldcon, an international celebration of science fiction and fantasy that pre-dates (and was interrupted by) World War II! And as if that wasn’t enough, the Two and Verity Who Rule bring you all the latest Doctor Who news, of which there is a smattering! Enjoy!

rfs483With San Diego Comic-Con mere days away, the mystery, hinting, and oblique teasing is reaching a fever pitch, with not only the main players on Doctor Who’s creative team storming Hall H on Thursday, July 9, but also a Titan Comics panel to whet your fannish interest, along with toys, exclusives and all manner of madness for the Three Who Rule to weigh in on. Next week we’ll have friend of the show and rakish flaneur Kyle Anderson calling in from SDCC to give us all the news on Series 9 and the all important State of Capaldi’s Bouffant, but for now, enjoy an interview with comedian, Doctor Who enthusiast and fine fellow Toby Hadoke about his new BBC radio play, “The Dad Who Fell To Earth”!

rfs469Happy post-10th Who birthday, everyone! What with Peter Capaldi visiting the Doctor Who Experience and entertaining children with birthday cakes and charm, it’s easy to forget that other things were happening in the world of Who this week, like Big Finish announcing they’ll be making their audio adventures until at least 2020, or a mad genius 3D printing a bust of the aforementioned Mr. Capaldi. All mere preamble though, as this week we bring you an interview with biographer Richard Marson, who is following up his excellent book on John Nathan-Turner with “Drama and Delight: The Life of Verity Lambert.” Intrigued?

Radio Free Skaro #412 – Ahearne It Through The Grapevine

Radio Free Skaro #412 – Click here to listen!

rfs412The Three Who Rule are travelling back in time this week to the wild, wooly days of 2005, when a certain program about a madman in a box first re-graced our screens after a long, long hiatus. Though we take the success of Doctor Who as a matter of course these days, in those early stories the show could have easily failed, and the fact that it didn’t is in no small part due to the work of one Joe Ahearne, gentleman director and subject of the Miniscope. Join Steven, Warren and Chris as they dissect the work of one of the most important directors of new Who…and also waste your time beforehand with news, japes and the introduction of P-Cap and J-Co to the “irritating shortened names for actors” pantheon.
