Radio Free Skaro #683 – Greyscale Separation Overlay


Download MP3

There’s extraordinarily little in the way of news this week, other than the fact that your Time Team (and a big ‘ol crew) are currently shooting Series 12 and saying nothing about it. But if you said to yourself “hoo boy would I like to hear people talking about insect movement, possibly by Roslyn de Winter,” are you in for a treat! Yes, the Three Who Rule are doing a Classic Series Commentary for the 1965 story “The Web Planet” in all it’s ambitious flawed glory, right here on this podchannel! Settle into a cocoon of mucus and nutrients and enjoy!

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!

Warren has returned from Worldcon, and has tales of Finland, Stockholm and international nerdery to share with Steven, Chris and all you good people before we move to the main event, an interview with author and superfan Steven Hill about Red White and Who: The Story of Doctor Who in America. Years in the making, this weighty tome is a comprehensive look at Doctor Who on North American screens, and leaves no televisual stone unturned. Tune in, why don’t you?

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”!

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!

rfs543Rumours, mumblesuch and nonsense dominated the news week, from Power of the Daleks teases that weren’t to the chance (slim to in actual fact…none) that Doctor Who would shoot soon in Warren’s own homestead of Vancouver. All poppycock! But you can count on the veracity and verisimilitude of the Three Who Rule as they tackle another exciting set of…Fluid Links!

rfs527After a banner week of…well, a new companion announcement and accompanying short, which counts for a lot in this, The Year of No Doctor Who, we’re back to an absolutely desolate news list-ette with barely anything of consequence beyond an art show about Target Books. Which is admittedly pretty cool! And we’ve also put the Series 9 commentaries on the back burner, but only temporarily, because this week we have an interview with Peter Harness, writer of “The Zygon Invasion” and “The Zygon Inversion”, and all around classy fella to boot! Listen and learn (about Zygons)!

rfs490Another Hugos has come and gone, and with it two-thirds of the Radio Free Skaro crew can cross “host pre and post show at the Hugos and ad-lib for almost a half hour during same” off their bucket list. Though the Hugos were…dogged with controversy, in the eye of the storm all was calm and in fact Steven and Warren (along with Verity’s own Erika Ensign) were pleased to attend their first Worldcon, an international celebration of science fiction and fantasy that pre-dates (and was interrupted by) World War II! And as if that wasn’t enough, the Two and Verity Who Rule bring you all the latest Doctor Who news, of which there is a smattering! Enjoy!

Radio Free Skaro #489 – Click here to listen!

rfs489A new trailer for Series 9 of Doctor Who was released this week, simultaneously stoking and dampening the fires of Steven and Warren’s clinically insane theories regarding the upcoming Capaldis of Pompeii story/rumour/nonsense. But more lunacy awaits, with Tom Baker intoning that he is joining the Star Wars universe (!?), Hacette putting out a mammoth collection of Doctor Who books chronicling the history of the show from start to finish, and the Doctor Who Fan Show interviewing Titans Comics impresario Andrew James (link in the show notes). We also have an interview with Hugos person-in-charge David D’Antonio, who talks to Steven about the upcoming Worldcon in Spokane and the Hugo Awards taking place at said con. Tune into the pre and post Hugos live show next Saturday on UStream to see Steven and Warren debase themselves like grovelling insects on the newfangled invention of video!
