• Radio Free Skaro #449 – Super 8

    For the first time ever (we defy you to prove us wrong, RFS pedants, DEFY YOU) Radio Free Skaro is coming out on November 23rd, better known this year as the 51st anniversary of Doctor Who, our favorite program. And while there's no new Who to discuss until Christmas, we ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #448 – The Road To Qdoba

    And so begins the Dark Times, otherwise known as waiting a month and a bit after the end of Series 8 for the Doctor Who Christmas Special. In the meantime, the Three Who Rule tackled stats, poured one out for sci-fi TV legend Glen A. Larson, and most importantly, devoted ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #447 – All The President’s Cybermen

    And with that, Series 8 of Doctor Who is over! After a radical turn towards darkness and drama it all came together with “Death in Heaven,” the final episode of the series and the P-Capstone on the 12th Doctor’s inaugural year. From the machinations of Missy (AKA The Master) to ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #446 – The Moffat Master Plan

    The penultimate episode of Series 8 is upon us, with Cybermen, the afterlife, and Missy, who is revealed as….well, you should certainly watch “Dark Water” (penned by Steven Moffat and directed by Rachel Talalay) before listening to the Three Who Rule expound upon the contents therein, or risk a mega-spoiler ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #445 – Can’t See The Forest For The Trees

    "In the Forest Of The Night" already looks to be one of the most polarizing episodes of Series 8, and there's no shortage of opinion on this week's Radio Free Skaro to go around. Along with Steven and Warren, Nerdist wordsmith Kyle Anderson joined in (pinch-hitting for an unavailable Chris) ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #444 – Boneless Chicken Wings

    Doctor 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 ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #443 – Execute Order 66

    Trains! Space! A mummy! Jelly babies! Foxes! All things in writer Jamie Mathieson's “Mummy on the Orient Express,” this week’s episode of the obscure and not well regarded televisual program known as Doctor Who, and all subjects for debate for the Three Who Rule, who mulled all these elements plus ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #442 – Through The Thick And Thin

    “Kill the Moon,” this week’s episode of Doctor Who, has proven to be one of the most divisive in recent memory, with fandom loving it or despising it but certainly not dismissing it. Was it the “game changer” showrunner Steven Moffat made it out to be? Has Peter Capaldi’s Doctor ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #441 – Officer’s Mess

    When we found out that Gareth Roberts was the scribe behind “The Caretaker,” we all expected a rompity-romp-romp, much like “The Lodger” and “Closing Time.” And while this story did have rompy moments, it was also funny, touching and filled with nice character touches that you’ll only find out about ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #440 – All Hail The Great Architect

    The beauty of Doctor Who is that it can be any story, anywhere and anywhen…and yet inexplicably there’s never really been a heist episode. Well, no longer! “Time Heist,” by writer Steve Thompson of “Curse of the Black Spot” and “Journey to the Center of the TARDIS" (ahem) fame. Did ...

This week Video Free Skaro dives back into the world of Standard Action, a web series shot in Vancouver and set in a mythical land not unlike one that involves both Dungeons and/or Dragons. We talked to Standard Action director Rob Hunt and costumer and assistant director Vanessa Driveness, and we’ve got a sneak peek from a scene between a sassy kobold and Eric Fell, whom you may recognize from Blue Meanie and Skaromantic Comedy.

All this and news, Gally updates and so much more!

SPACE, the home of Doctor Who in Canada, has announced that Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol will air on Sunday, December 26 at 9pm ET – one day after the BBC will air it in the UK and the American premiere of the 2010 Christmas Special on BBC America. While not matching the day-and-date airing of BBC America, the one day delay is the quickest turnaround of a Canadian broadcast since The End of Time, Part Two aired on January 2, 2010, a day after it aired in the UK. Listen to the upcoming Radio Free Skaro episode #226 this weekend to hear The Three Who Rule’s take on this news.

Warren ran for cover when he learned Time-Flight was the next up to bat in the Classic Series Commentaries series, so Paul from The Pharos Project podcast was strongarmed into filling his shoes. The crew did their level best to not talk about the story at hand thanks to its less than stellar production values and execution, but from time to time nevertheless felt compelled to address what was on their screens. In a cruel twist of fate, the Randomizer decided next week’s commentary was going to be for another story that one of the crew, as with Time-Flight, greatly dislikes…

With the news light in the wake of Series 5 ending, the Three Who Rule were glad of a commentary to tide them over. Image of the Fendahl was the focal point thanks to the powers of the randomizer, a story that stands out for one of our hosts while merely exists for the other two. Come join the fun of the west country accents, slash writers going crazy, lost plots, a golden Wanda Ventham and just about the darkest Doctor Who story ever! And what could possibly be in store for the next installment of the summer commentary series?
