Radio Free Skaro #577 – Second Chances


Download MP3

It’s a week before new Doctor Who, which means a veritable tsunami of news, previews and madness, including the surprise reveal that John Simm will come back as the Master and possibly cause a shipping paradox the likes of which hasn’t been seen since SuperWhoLock! In other surprises, Britbox announced they’re streaming most of Classic Who, “The Return of Doctor Mysterio” was nominated for a Hugo, and we have a new segment called Second Chances looking at that very story with Titan Comic Tenth Doctor scribe Nick Abadzis!

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!

Radio Free Skaro #546 – Hipsters of the Quawncing Grig


Download MP3

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?

rfs529Hotelmageddon! The annual minute-or-less scramble for rooms at the LAX Marriott for Gallifrey One was once again a frenzied affair, and the Three Who Rule have the scars to prove it. But they also have news, such as new Big Finish War Doctor stories, including one by friend of the show Andrew Smith, and a new Twelfth Doctor sonic on the way to set your hearts (both of them) aflame! But wait! There’s also a commentary for Sleep No More, featuring Kathleen Schowalter! YOU WILL LISTEN!

rfs523Japes, buffoonery and falsehoods dominate the news this week, with beloved entertainer and Deadite murderer Bruce Campbell claiming he’ll be the next Doctor..all in service of April Fool’s Day. What a card! And bless him for trying because there’s almost nothing else happening as the Year of No Who limps along. However, we at RFS are doing our part to fill the gap with our Series 9 commentaries, including this week’s look at “The Girl Who Died” with Alyssa from Whovian Feminism!

Radio Free Skaro #511 – Ground Control to Major Tom


Download MP3

rfs511For almost as long as Doctor Who has been around, there have been excited scribes chronicling its triumphs, tragedies, terrors and the finer points of Terileptil husbandry. Chief amongst these chroniclers of Time Lord lore has been Doctor Who Magazine, currently under the expert tutelage of gentleman editor Tom Spilsbury, our interview subject for this week’s episode. We also have a mere sprinkling of news, most of it Big Finish related! We also pay tribute to a couple of titans we lost this past week in David Bowie and Alan Rickman. Listen…if you dare!

rfs503And so we come to the end of Clara Oswald, one of the most consequential companions in the history of Doctor Who and the focus of “Face The Raven,” the third to last story in Series 9. What did the Three Who Rule think of Clara’s departure, writer Sarah Dollard’s debut, and the return of Rigsy? And, as the Three catch up on various news items of the past couple weeks, what of stats, comics, DVDs and other frip-frap? Next week, Steven calls in from Chicago TARDIS and we look at “Heaven Sent,” the Capaldi one-hander leading into the Series 9 finale. Woot!

rfs472In what may be a new record for top-of-the-show off-topic banter, much hashing out of the new Star Wars trailer (of course) occurred, along with Steven’s descent into schedule and archived newspaper madness, wherein he charts out exactly when he (and by extension the other Two Who Rule) began watching Doctor Who on KSPS, the semi-local PBS station. Besides this lunacy, much discussion was had of a Series 8 soundtrack release (3 discs!), Dominic Glynn’s excellent Ravalox Remixes of his original scores for 80s Who, Christopher Eccleston’s recent comments on why he and Doctor Who parted ways, and much, much more! And! We also have Jono Park from the Zeus Pod podcast for a commentary on Time Heist! Can you stand the excitement?! Probably not, no.
