Radio Free Skaro #569 – Radio Free Skaro: Victorian Gothic Folly

Hooray for Gallifrey! The Three Who Rule are back for their ninth(!) trip to Gallifrey One, the real happiest place on Earth, and for the sixth(!!) year running, it has been their honour to help launch the convention in style with their very own live show. This year, Paul McGann, Philip Hinchcliffe, Roger Murray-Leach, Rachael Stott, and Nick Abadzis were the guests, and a grand time was had by all. Listen in and enjoy!

We’ll be there doing our live show at 10:30 a.m. Friday in the main hall with our live show, “Radio Free Skaro: Victorian Gothic Folly,” but in the meantime get comfortable as we break down what we’re looking forward to seeing and doing at the LAX Marriott, and stay tuned next week for shows from the con!

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 #566 – Never Cruel Or Cowardly


Download MP3

It is with a heavy heart that we mark the passing of acting legend John Hurt, beloved by Whovians for his portrayal of the War Doctor in “The Day of the Doctor” but with a career spanning the best of film, TV, and the stage. In happier news, we can now announce the guests for our Gallifrey One live show (contained within) and some other notable Gally news, updates and miscellany! We also announce the winner of our Whographica giveaway contest! Plus stats (bleh) and a commentary for the 1978 story “The Ribos Operation”! To me, Sholakh!

Radio Free Skaro #565 – Warning: Graphic Content


Download MP3

Dollies, Nardole and a reliably batty, 83 years young Tom Baker are the mere froth on the fancy latte of Whographica, an exquisite collection of infographics featuring incredibly nerdy deep dives into the corners and recesses of Doctor Who trivia. We interviewed authors Simon Guerrier, Steve O’Brien and Ben Morris, to find out what went into this expansive and frankly obsessive labour of love. Adjust your rectangular framed glasses, straighten your turtleneck, and enjoy! And listen in to see how you can win a copy of Whographica (courtesy BBC Books) of your very own!

Goodbye 2016, and hello new year! And what better way to ring in a new wander around the sun than stats? Well, practically anything, but that’s all we’ve got! All, that is, except for an interview with Big Finish impresario and voice of the Daleks Nick Briggs, recently conducted at LI Who by Warren! Enjoy, or you will be exterminated!

rfs552At long last, Class is here! Yes, two episodes of the newest spin-off of Doctor Who have landed (in the UK and Canada) and the Three Who Rule have their thoughts to share with you…unless you wish not to hear them, being in the United States! We’ve conveniently put bridging music before and after our review, and put the time of said review in the show notes, for you, our American listeners (who don’t download tv shows like fiendish criminal vandals). Besides that, we also have action dolly news, confirmation of Missy in Series 10 of Doctor Who, a discussion by three middle-aged nerds about the viewing habits of millennials, and more!

rfs54210 years! That’s a whole lot of talking by three jaunty Canadians about a British television program of little repute by the name of Professor Whom. But after a smattering of news, the Three Who Rule move quickly on to an extended series of interviews with the fine people with whom we’ve shared our podcasting adventures with, including: Ken Deep of Podshock fame, Deborah Stanish, Katrina Griffiths and Erika Ensign of Verity!, Chip Sudderth of the Two Minute Time Lord, and Simon Harries, John Williams and Neil Perryman of Tachyon TV! Phew! Here’s to ten more years of meandering drivel from Canadian interlopers who have no right to talk of Britain’s televisual crown jewel!
