Radio Free Skaro #537 – A Towering Intelligence


Download MP3

rfs537San Diego Comic-Con looms like a monolith on the very edge of our collective nerd conscience, and though Doctor Who officially will not be at this year’s SDCC, Titan Comics will be holding a panel and slaking the fires of word-balloon fueled fever! Add to that a contest for signed copies of issues #500 and #501 of Doctor Who Magazine, and Warren’s live-tweeting adventure chronicling the Director’s Guild of Canada with Rachel Talalay and Amanda Tapping (Storify link in the show notes) and you’ve got yourself a podcas…..but wait! There’s also a commentary on the classic series adventure “The Time Warrior” for you to enjoy! Oh yes, and three old men trying to talk about Pokemon and failing utterly. Shame them, for they deserve it.

But what you really want to know about is the work of Classic Series director Paul Bernard, who helmed “Day of the Daleks”, “The Time Monster” and “Frontier In Space” and we have an examination of his work…in the Miniscope!

rfs531It’s the return of the Miniscope! The segment wherein the Three Who Rule discuss the contributions of notable creator folk throughout the history of Doctor Who, and to welcome back this popular segment, we talk about showrunner-designate Chris Chibnall’s prior writing efforts in Doctor Who. Also, our friend Chip from the Two-Minute Time Lord drops by for the news, which is filled with talk about issue 500 of the venerable Doctor Who Magazine, including an excellent interview with current showrunner Steven Moffat. Next week: the return of Fluid Links!

rfs472In what may be a new record for top-of-the-show off-topic banter, much hashing out of the new Star Wars trailer (of course) occurred, along with Steven’s descent into schedule and archived newspaper madness, wherein he charts out exactly when he (and by extension the other Two Who Rule) began watching Doctor Who on KSPS, the semi-local PBS station. Besides this lunacy, much discussion was had of a Series 8 soundtrack release (3 discs!), Dominic Glynn’s excellent Ravalox Remixes of his original scores for 80s Who, Christopher Eccleston’s recent comments on why he and Doctor Who parted ways, and much, much more! And! We also have Jono Park from the Zeus Pod podcast for a commentary on Time Heist! Can you stand the excitement?! Probably not, no.

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? Then lend us the use of your aural cavities for an hour and change!

rfs466The Two Who Rule and Chip are back, with a somewhat sparse but interesting news list featuring a fascinating Steven Moffat interview in the latest Doctor Who Magazine, a Capaldi plushie (henceforth referred to as CuddlePaldi), news of the BBC spinning off a studio division, a truly excrable survey of Doctor Who viewers circa 1988, and (not much) more! But the meat of the matter is a commentary featuring not only the regular RFS crew but also the inestimable Graeme Burk, author and Reality Bomb impressario. Band of brothers, fighting together!

rfs444Doctor Who is often at its best when it mixes domesticity with the fantastical, and the Jamie Mathieson penned, Douglas Mackinnon directed “Flatline” was no exception, if the rapturous reception (spoilers) of the Three Who Rule for this week’s episode is anything to go by. Thrill to their enthusiasm! Enjoy their musings! Agree with them or else! All that passive-aggressive goodness and the usual stats, tat and flibbity flap awaits!

rfs435Only one week to go until the premiere of Series 8, or as Warren (and no-one else) terms it, 8mageddon, and there’s news of trailers, radio trailers, misguided Tom Baker biopics, Doctor Who world tours and more. But more importantly, Friend of the Show, all around fine gent and writer of some renown Phil Ford returns to talk about “Into the Dalek,” his contribution to Series 8 due to grace our screens in just a couple of weeks, but also about the Deep Breath premiere in Cardiff and just how wonderful Peter Capaldi really is, both on and off camera. And if you’ve ever wanted to know what ringtones the Three Who Rule have on our phones, well….you’re welcome.

Despite the dearth of SDCC news, rest assured our list is chockablock full of items of interest, and as if that weren’t enough, we also have the last Fluid Links for quite some time! Madness!
