rfs525Gallifrey! Yes, the yearly ticket scramble and subsequent endorphin rush that is the Gallifrey One pass-purchasing passel of pugilism has once again come and gone, with nearly 3300 tickets sold. But that’s nearly a year away, and in present Earth time there is a Torchwood comic and, unfortunately, the death of Roj Blake himself, Gareth Thomas. And! We have a commentary for “The Zygon Invasion, with Uncanny Magazine editor and Verity podcaster Lynne M. Thomas!

Doctor Who (aka “Doctor Misterio” in Mexico) is so popular he was mobbed at the airport by adoring fans…as is only right and proper.

Radio Free Skaro #512 – The New World Order


Download MP3

rfs512The Doctor Who world was rocked this week by the news that Steven Moffat will be stepping down as showrunner, to be replaced by Chris Chibnall, showrunner of Broadchurch and writer of Torchwood, Life on Mars and yes, Doctor Who fame. What did the Three Who Rule think of this seismic shift, not to mention the fact that there won’t be any new Who until Christmas of this year? More to the point, what are their views on digitizing Doctor Who pinball? Never let it be said we don’t focus on the important issues here at RFS. Just in case baseless speculation isn’t your thing, we also have an interview with Katy Manning, recorded at LI Who and presented here for your listening pleasure.
