Radio Free Skaro #670 – Curran Account


Download MP3

Have you ever wanted to see block transfer computation on the big screen? Your time has come as “Logopolis” hits theatres this March in the US and the BFI in February in advance of the release of the Doctor Who Season 18 box set! And as if that isn’t enough deep dive craziness, Big Finish is going to fill your summer with stories of the War Master and the Eighth Doctor politely nodding at each other and perhaps battling for the fate of the universe. Plus tales of tat, accolades and awards, and an interview from Chicago TARDIS with Vincent Van Gogh himself, actor Tony Curran!

With no new Doctor Who until New Year’s Day in the form of “Resolution”, how will the Three Who Rule cope with their withdrawal pangs? Why, by celebrating the arrival of the Number of the Beast, Episode 666, with a commentary for the Series 2 episodes “The Impossible Planet” and “The Satan Pit”, two of the most devil-centric episodes ever! (And also two of the best Doctor Who episodes ever!) Yes, we’re aware of the Daemons pedants, move along. Plus we have Series 11 Blu-Ray news, Series 11 soundtrack info, some tat discussion, and possibly even scarier than ol’ Scratchman himself, stats!

Welcome to April! Which means we’re now only about six months until Jodie Whittaker’s debut as the new Doctor Who! Until then, we’ve got #Whoagainstguns final tallies, some sneaky hints from Philip Morris about “The Web of Fear” Part 3, Hugo nominations for Verity! and Doctor Who “Twice Upon a Time”, and a deep dive into Malcolm Hulke’s left wing leanings with “Doctor Who and the Communist” author Michael Herbert in part three of our Malcolm Hulke Miniscope! Ypa, comrades!

There’s nothing Doctor Who-ish on TV until Christmas…but there is an hour with debonair man of the 1970s, Jon Pertwee, who graces the BBC iPlayer with an hour of his many charms in the imaginatively named “An Hour with Jon Pertwee!” There’s also movement afoot in things game, textual and action dolly, with Big Finish going (even more) digital, A Parliament worth of Dalek Dollies and possibly the premature end of LEGO Dimensions. Our Second Chances this week also marks the end of the Monk Trilogy as Drew Meyer joins us to look at “The Lie of the Land!”

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”!

Capaldexit! Yes, the Three Who Rule were sideswiped (as was everyone else) by Peter Capaldi’s surprise announcement that he was leaving the role of The Doctor, and after admonishing the UK press for baseless speculation, the RFS crew engaged in frankly hypocritical predictions of their own. That plus stats, Series Ten news and a 70 minute(!) Miniscope about writer/director Terence Dudley round out this episode! Enjoy!

rfs546This week, we begin the first of a two-part commentary for “The Two Doctors”, a Robert Holmes romp with Two, Six, hipster cannibals, tall Sontarans, and Elton John as a disco scientist. Enticing! But before the main event, the Three Who Rule reflect on the 50th anniversaries of both Star Trek and The Prisoner, two shows that along side Doctor Who were seminal viewing experiences for their younger selves. Dive into the past with us, won’t you?
