|After a wait of almost 40 years, the Ice Warriors have returned to Doctor Who, with at least (and let’s be honest, at most) one heavily armoured, lumbering green menace back to make the lives of an 80’s crew of Soviet submariners a soggy, terrifying hell. Mark Gatiss, a Who polymath with some hits and a few misses under his belt, brings the claustrophobic terror with “Cold War,” but the real question is, what did the Three Who Rule think of the story? With precious little to discuss besides this episode and stats, stats, stats (and more stats) they expostulated at length, coming perilously close to beating Douglas McKinnon’s expertly paced tale’s running time with their balderdash and bafflegab.|
|Just as Doctor Who is missing episodes from its archive, the Three Who Rule are missing Chris this week. But instead of providing you with a telesnap reconstruction of Pedantor, we bring to you instead an interview with Richard Molesworth, author of Wiped!, the second edition of which is hitting bookshelves soon. Steven and Richard discuss all there is to talk about regarding missing episodes, including recent discoveries, mystery in Sierra Leone, and what’s being done to hopefully find more episodes in the future. Warren and Steven also plough through a news list featuring discussion of conventions, Series 7b news, and outrage at the continued absence of a Bill Filer action figure.|
– Gallifrey One…25 Glorious Years!
Other upcoming conventions:
– Calgary Expo (Calgary, AB, April 26-28)
|Because of a complicated situation involving Mandrels, Bandrils, the Borad and the Swarm, the Three Who Rule kept it (somewhat) brief this week, focusing on conserving their energies for the onslaught of Gallifrey coverage coming your way in a mere week and change. News included the casting of “An Adventure in Space and Time,” the increasingly intruiging dramatization of the early days of Doctor Who, DVD news, analysis of the upcoming insanely detailed (and expensive) David Tennant figure, and a tribute to Bernard Horsfall, a veteran Classic Who actor who left us all too soon this week.
But since this is Radio Free Skaro, there was also pointless debate about the Mask of Omega, the overall quality of the Three Doctors, the Two Doctors and other classic stories, and speculation about just what the BBC is holding back (if anything) regarding their celebratory plans for the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. Enjoy this short(er) but sweet(er) episode, which will lighten the weight of your portable listening device! Don’t question that last statement, it is SCIENCE.
