Radio Free Skaro #679 – A Field In Wales


Download MP3

It’s a Radio Free Skaro episode to lose sleep over, quite literally this week, as Steven and Chris tackle the news of the week as well as daylight saving time while Warren, absent for various reasons, sits content in his time eddy, away from proceedings. The main event this week, though, is an interview recorded at Gallifrey One this past February with noted director Ben Wheatley, who helmed “Deep Breath” and “Into The Dalek” to usher in the Peter Capaldi era!

“The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos” is upon us, and with it comes the end (almost) of Series 11, Jodie Whittaker’s first run as one Doctor Who, and the Time Fam’s dramatic arcs (such as there are) more or less..concluded? So what did the Three Who Rule think of this episode, the new series, Chris Chibnall’s efforts as Doctor Who showrunner and all other permutations thereof? Plus news of a quite Christmas-y nature, a title for the New Year’s Special, some Who-adjacent neatness and more!

Beginnings and endings this week as the build-up to Series 11 continues with the official premiere in Sheffield on September 24 – and you could be there! (But not to actually see the screening). And we tip our toque to the Doctor Who Information Network, Canada’s longest running Doctor Who fan organization, closing its doors at the end of October. But the main event is a trip back to 1971 and the planet Uxarieus as we commentate overtop of the first three episodes of “Colony In Space”!

The topic of Doctor Who missing episodes has been dormant relatively recently, but a tangent in an interview with producer/director Paul Vanezis, who has aided in the recovery of other previously missing Doctor Who episodes, may raise the profile once again. (Listen to the interview with Steven starting at 30:36; JR Southall joins Steven later to discuss what Paul said). Elsewhere, Doctor Who on Twitch has been an unprecedented success, launching new memes and generating fresh enthusiasm amongst a whole new generation of Doctor Who fans!
