Exciting times here for the Three Who Rule as it’s time for the first Miniscope of 2019! The subject is writer Jamie Mathieson, scribe of four stories from the Peter Capaldi era (“Mummy on the Orient Express”, “Flatline”, “The Girl Who Died” (co-written with Steven Moffat), and “Oxygen”). And in the news, reports of a new production designer for Series 12, a host of new and upcoming Doctor Who related media releases, and an important sale from the fine vendors who were to appear at the now canceled ReGeneration Who!

Radio Free Skaro #478 – Shallow Grave

rfs478The news this week is sparse, so of course conspiracy theories abounded amongst the Three Who Rule involving Zimbabwe, missing episodes, cricket, and madness. But lo, there was a small morsel of news, and that was the fact that San Diego Comic Con will in fact have a Doctor Who panel (featuring Capaldi, Moffat, Minchin, Coleman and Gomez) on Thursday, so we can tell you much earlier….whatever they reveal! But let’s get down to brass tacks here, by which I mean a commentary on the Series 8 standout episode “Flatline”, with Verity’s own Liz Myles! Forward…to the second dimension!

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

Radio Free Skaro #445 – Click here to listen!

rfs445“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) to take a look at a story about…well, trees. Warren also interviewed Rachel Talalay, the director of both “Dark Water” and “Death in Heaven”, the penultimate and final episodes of the series, and her thoughts on Doctor Who, the differences between directing for UK and American television, and a whole host of other topics are here for you to enjoy. Plus stats, general annoyance about the lack of a 5″ P-Cap action dollie, audio news, and all manner of jaunty amusement await you!

rfs444Doctor 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 their musings! Agree with them or else! All that passive-aggressive goodness and the usual stats, tat and flibbity flap awaits!

rfs443Trains! 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 rampant lying, Bechdel cabs, and much more! Also stats, comics books, Foxes’ spoiler-y music video, and much more! Well actually, that’s really about it. But enjoy regardless!

Radio Free Skaro #442 – Through The Thick And Thin

Radio Free Skaro #442 – Click here to listen!

rfs442“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 plumbed the dark depths of jerkery, and was he justified in doing so? So many questions for the Three Who Rule to muddle through and cogitate upon! And they do! Oh yes and there are some stats as well, but then you’d expect that, wouldn’t you?

rfs438Robin Hood! Robots! Shenanigans! Etc! Things took a turn for the romp-y in “Robot of Sherwood,” the latest episode of Doctor Who, but what did the usually taciturn and P-Cap-ian Three Who Rule think? Eh? Listen as the three acerbic grouchwads expound upon the story in question and also reflect on stats and what a blight they are on human society. But that’s not all, not by a long chalk! We also have an interview with director Douglas MacKinnon, whose handiwork will be seen later this series in “Time Heist”, “Flatline” and, next week, in “Listen”! So…do so!
