With Gallifrey One Month almost upon us, there’s only one more chance for STATS! to make Warren’s life a living hell, and the other Two Who Rule jumped at the chance like the animals they are, but also found the kindness to share with you, dear listener, news of Big Finish, Series 12 filming in South Africa, and one David Tennant starting his own podcast of chinwagging with his actor friends. Plus we have the last of our Chicago TARDIS interviews, with none other than Catrin Stewart!

The last (sniff) stats update for the season, Gallifrey One news, Dalek novelizations, and Dalek vinyl releases are all in the mix in this week’s news, but the meat of the matter is an interview with director Wayne Yip, who ushered New Year’s special “Resolution” onto our screens! Join Mr. Yip as he discusses stunt driving pod cars, remote control Daleks, the logistics of directing, and more!

With a mere two weeks to go before Series 11 of Doctor Who graces our screens, the news is arriving with increased ferocity, including a new trailer, articles in Doctor Who Magazine and the New York Times (!), cinema screenings, media appearances by one J. Whittaker, and more! But while you look forward to October 7, why not jump back through the decades to 1971 (and forward to Earth’s future) with our hair-obsessed commentary of episodes four to six of “Colony in Space!”

Radio Free Skaro #595 – The Origins of Mr. Who


Download MP3

With Warren away at Worldcon this week (where while Doctor Who did not win a Hugo for “The Return of Doctor Mysterio”, Steven did for his work on Uncanny Magazine!), it’s left to Steven and Chris to talk about the first interviews with Jodie Whittaker since her unveiling as the new Doctor, and other sundry items that tend to fill a news list in the middle of August. But the main feature this week is an interview with friend and author Graeme Burk about his upcoming book “Sydney Newman: Head of Drama”!

DVDs and Series 6 news were the order of the day as the 2011 DVD release schedule was unveiled this past week in Doctor Who Magazine, and boy howdy are there some puzzling combinations of stories into box sets. The upcoming series of Doctor Who gets a bit of a different look with a newly-announced writer and a shuffling in the order of episodes, and there’s even a bit of a natter about Doctor Who Magazine’s list of who to follow on Twitter (hint: we’re on that list, nudge nudge). A look at controversial writer/script editor Eric Saward rounds out the show with some great discussion of his influence and reach, along with the selection of next week’s miniscope subject… and just who will that be?
