Radio Free Skaro #655 – Her Majesty


Download MP3

The countdown is on with one week to a new Doctor and a new era, and the media frenzy continues unabated with Jodie Whittaker playing an entirely non-canon Theremin on the Graham Norton Show, talking on BBC Radio6, giving us the first(ish) glimpse at her Doctor with a 53 second clip, and frankly a staggering amount of news that can’t possibly be summed up with these pithy remarks. We also have a quick visit from Paul Cornell to discuss his last-ever Doctor Who week available now in a new Titan Comics Humble Bundle, and last week’s Series 11 panel from Edmonton Expo, with Earp Chirpers and Whovians Erika Ensign and Annette Wierstra, Variant Edmonton comic book purveyor (and Doctor Whoocher) Danica LeBlanc…and Steven.

Comic-Con! Yes, SDCC has come and gone once again, and with it we now have a trailer for “Twice Upon a Time,” the swan-song for one P-Cap and the glorious retconning of one D-Brad as the First Doctor, along with words and thoughts from gentleman scribe Kyle Anderson, who gives us an almost-live look from the ground as he left the BBC panel, as well as filling us in the Classic Who panel he moderated featuring Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sophie Aldred! Plus a simply staggering pile of news about dollies, the continued stir over a female Doctor, and so..much..swag. And sadly, we also have to report the passing of both Deborah Watling and Trevor Baxter, who will be sorely missed.

No sooner did we joke about Mondasian Cybermen in Series 10 than they magically appear in a publicity shot with one Peter Capaldi! While we’d like to claim prophetic wisdom in this matter, we had no inside knowledge and this was likely a “going out in style” wish from one Mr. Capaldi, and we are all the better for it. P-Cap will also be gracing the small, inconsequential town of Calgary, AB for Calgary Expo at the end of April, to the delight of bouffant enthusiasts across the Canadian prairies! And in other good news, we have two interviews to round out our Gallifrey coverage, one with the voice of the Daleks, Cybermen (plus many others) and Big Finish man about town Nicholas Briggs, and the other with writer, director, actor and Dalek operator Nicholas Pegg! Do we have the right? Of course we do!

rfs454Mind games, face huggers and tangerines…that’s what passes for Christmastime when the Doctor gets involved. Sarcastic elves, a sassy Santa, and questionably CG reindeer round out Doctor Who’s dip into surreality on this latest Xmas special, “Last Christmas”, from the pen of Steven Moffat and directed by Paul Wilmshurst. So what did the Three Who Rule, brains slowed by turkey and Tofurky, think of P-Cap’s first foray into Yuletide adventure? Down some egg nog, tear yourself away from erudite political discussion with the relatives, and have a listen!

Radio Free Skaro #422 – Nobody Slaps Cyril Shaps

Radio Free Skaro #422 – Click here to listen!

rfs422A shocking (O’ the Quawncing Grig) amount of news this week, including the inclusion of Tank Girl director Rachel Talalay as a Series Eight helmer for two episodes, Doctor Who returning to Lanzorate for the aforementioned Series Eight, A Doctor Who comics Humble Bundle, and more! By far the coolest news of the week, at least for production nerds such as ourselves, was the release by Restoration Team member Paul Vanezis of a behind the scenes video showing the process of cleaning up and transferring the recently discovered film print of Enemy of World. Sprockets! Gears! Troughton on a beach! And speaking of Troughton, this week’s commentary is the all-time classic Tomb of the Cybermen! Sit back, warm up a mug of your favourite beverage, and enjoy as Cyril Shaps and some other people battle the second-deadliest foe in the Whoniverse! We also announce the winner of our RFS Giveaway contest for a signed copy of Paul Cornell’s “The Severed Streets”!
