|Chip, of the currently on hiatus Two-Minute Time Lord, current Whovian gadabout, and man about town rejoins Two of the Three Who Rule (Chris is still punching his liver with an assortment of British liquids) for a brief sojourn through a paltry news list this week! Dribbles of info about Class (which premieres October 22 in various parts of the Commonwealth)…and not much else. But wait! Chris travels from the past to the present to comment on the past (confused? We are) as RFS is plagued by “The Curse…of Fenric”!|
– Class Ep 1 and 2 available on BBC Three at 10am on October 22

|With New York Comic-Con upon us, the Doctor Who news is (at last) coming fast and furious with two(!) trailers for Class out in the wild and a panel featuring Steven Moffat, Peter Capaldi, Matt Lucas, Brian Minchin and new companion Pearl Mackie at the con teasing what’s in store for the Christmas special and beyond! And with Chris off in the UK foraging for beer and scotch eggs, it was up to friend of the show Chip Sudderth to ably assume the third chair to cogitate upon matters Who with the Two Who Rule. We also have a report from Kim and Sage of Head Over Feels direct from NYCC! It’s a cornucopia of news on this, the most Canadian of Thanksgivings.|
– Doctor Who returns in “The Return of Doctor Mysterio”
|The Three Who Rule are at conterminous space coordinates this week, and despite the ever-present danger of the Blinovich Limitation Effect (not to mention cooties, con crud, and wayward glitter), they were able to record this episode “live” at Edmonton Expo! Besides controversy embroiling Class’s premiere next month in the UK and Canada and next year (!) in the USA, they were also able to tackle some of your Fluid Links, all while surrounded by cosplayers, fans, furries, and the ever present smell of onions.|

BBC Worldwide to release animation of lost Doctor Who story, The Power of the Daleks on Saturday 5th November, exactly 50 years to the minute after it was first transmitted on BBC One at 5.50pm on Saturday 5th November, 1966
Classic story featuring Patrick Troughton’s debut as the Doctor to be released later this year as a digital download on BBC Store and on BBC DVD
It’s one of the Doctor’s most celebrated adventures and yet no complete film recordings of The Power of the Daleks are known to have survived. The master negatives were destroyed in an archive purge in 1974.
BBC Worldwide has announced that a brand new black and white animation based on audio recordings of the programme using the original cast, surviving photographs and film clips will be released 50 years to the minute after its only UK broadcast on BBC One.
The six half hour episodes feature the regeneration, or as it was then called ‘renewal’, of First Doctor William Hartnell into Second Doctor Patrick Troughton, as the Time Lord and his companions Polly (Anneke Wills) and Ben (Michael Craze) do battle with the Daleks on the planet Vulcan.
Doctor Who: The Power of the Daleks is being produced by the team behind the highly successful animation of lost Dad’s Army episode A Stripe For Frazer, first released on BBC Store in February this year. The producer and director is Charles Norton, with character designs from acclaimed comic book artists Martin Geraghty and Adrian Salmon.
Charles Norton says, “The Power of the Daleks animation is the most ambitious Doctor Who archive restoration ever attempted and we’re all very honoured to be a part of such a an exciting project. Intelligent, suspenseful and magnificently staged, Power of the Daleks is one of the great lost classics of 1960s television and a superb example of the black and white era at its finest.”
Paul Hembury, Executive Producer, BBC Worldwide says, “Charles and his team are remarkably talented and passionate about Doctor Who and we are thrilled that fans will soon be able to enjoy this rather sinister but wonderful, classic story.”
Doctor Who: The Power Of The Daleks will be released on BBC Store on Saturday 5th November followed by the DVD on Monday 21st November.

Further information will be available from bfi.org.uk from Monday 19th September.

|A chance meeting with a newly married couple blessed by one Mr. Peter Capaldi, dribs and drabs of Class news, and….a Miniscope! Musical scientist Mark Ayres is the subject of keen-eyed observations from the Three Who Rule, only one of which (Steven) have any real musical expertise but the bulk of the Miniscope is an interview with said Mr. Ayres, a scholar and gentleman tunesmith of the highest renown. Open your ears and enjoy!|
– First promo image of Class, filming has wrapped
|New York Comic Con happens in October, with a strong presence from both Doctor Who and Class. But what if you a) are impatient and b) live not on the eastern seaboard of the United States but the East Midlands in the UK? Well, if you can wait until September 3 you can attend Whooverville 8 in Derby, and we have convention organizer and all-around gentleman Steve Hatcher on this week to tell us a little more about this fan-centric celebration of all things Doctor Who. Plus news (such as it is), and the Doctor Who Magazine Series 9 readers poll results! Enjoy!|
– Doctor Who Series 10 wrapping production in March 2017
|Rumours, mumblesuch and nonsense dominated the news week, from Power of the Daleks teases that weren’t to the chance (slim to in actual fact…none) that Doctor Who would shoot soon in Warren’s own homestead of Vancouver. All poppycock! But you can count on the veracity and verisimilitude of the Three Who Rule as they tackle another exciting set of…Fluid Links!|
– Doctor Who and Class…To Feature At New York Comic-Con!
Rachel Talalay, the award-winning director and who has helmed the finales of both Series 8 and Series 9 of Doctor Who, will be joining the Three Who Rule for director’s commentaries on her two Series 9 episodes, “Heaven Sent” and “Hell Bent”.
“Heaven Sent” has received considerable acclaim since its original broadcast, and in addition to being nominated for a 2016 Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation (Short Form), it is also eligible for Emmy Award nomination in the US. Rachel joins Steven and Warren for this commentary on Radio Free Skaro #533, which will be released on Sunday, June 12 at 2pm ET.
“Hell Bent” concludes the two-part finale, and features not only the return of Gallifrey, but the final regular appearance of Jenna Coleman as Clara Oswald. Rachel joins Steven and Chris for this commentary on Radio Free Skaro #534, the release of which will occur on Sunday, June 19 at 2pm ET.
Note that no commentaries for these two episodes are available on the official Doctor Who Series 9 box set, so Radio Free Skaro will be the only place to hear Rachel Talalay give a commentary for these amazing episodes. We thank Rachel for her time and for her enthusiasm in recording these with us, and we hope you all enjoy them!
*Note: we watched the NTSC (Region 1) versions of these episodes, so the commentaries will run slightly slower when trying to sync with PAL (Region 2) or other versions.
|There’s very little news this week, as per usual, and what we do know comes from cons across the land, including Michelle Gomez talking about her future on the show at Fan Expo Dallas, and where Peter Capaldi also proved (once again) his fan bona fides with an amazing imitation of a scene from “Day of the Daleks”! But vast these mere baubles of information aside and drink in the thoughts of the Three Who Rule as they answer your questions with the return of….Fluid Links!|
|Presenting a standalone episode featuring our documentary “A Day in the Life of Big Finish”, surrounding the production of the Big Finish story “Vampire of the Mind”. Featured in the documentary: Colin Baker, Kate Kennedy, Alex MacQueen, Jamie Anderson, Ian Atkins, and Nicholas Briggs.|
