|Stats! A nightmare scenario for Warren, and a garden of numbered delights for Steven and Chris, but either way paltry material for the post-series 9, pre-Gally news list. However, this week we have an interview with Petronella Osgood herself, Ingrid Oliver, recorded recently at Chicago TARDIS! Straighten your question mark collars, sit up straight, and enjoy!|

|Guest announcements for Gallifrey One and Chicago TARDIS! LEGO Doctor Who talk! Capaldi dolly banter! Warren becoming enraged by Star Trek: Into Darkness and almost saying a naughty word! Yes, it’s business as usual again here at Radio Free Skaro headquarters after the madness that was San Diego Comic-Con, but lo, we also have something special this week, the return of Nerdist scribe Kyle Anderson, who joins us for a commentary of the 2014 Doctor Who Christmas special “Last Christmas”! What better time than mid-July to get into the holiday spirit…of nightmares!|
– Doctor Who…Popular!
|News! News! News! So much news this week, from Vines of P-Cap playing guitar to Series 9 rumours, royal honours, convention doings and undoings, and (fake, but awesome) Doctor Who LEGO video games! The mind boggles! “But what else, you fiends?!” you declare, and for you, beloved listener, we also have Verity’s own Tansy Rayner Roberts with us for a commentary on “Dark Water”, the penultimate Series 8 showstopper featuring water, darkness and more!|
– Doctor Who Series 9…Episode 10 Details!
|It was a wild week to be a fan of Doctor Who and other sic-fi franchises this past week! Gallifrey One memberships went on sale and crashed ticket sales sites, Osgood and the Zygons are returning in Series 9, Torchwood audio plays are coming to Big Finish, and Avengers: Age of Ultron is filling movie theatres all over the world. What better week, then, to talk to Sam Maggs, author of the new book “The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy”, an instruction manual for fangirls new to the fold, as well as an educational tome for those who aren’t!|
– Gallifrey One memberships are sold out
|More guests have been announced for the next edition of the Gallifrey One convention in February!|
|In ajust a scant few episodes and specially recorded inserts, Strax the Sontaran, as played by Dan Starkey, has become the comedy heart of Doctor Who. Dan is a very popular convention guest, having last appeared at Gallifrey One in 2013.|
|Ingrid Oliver played the character Osgood, an employee of UNIT and devotee to the legend known as The Doctor, in the 50th anniversary story “The Day of the Doctor”. She is also slated to appear later in Series 8, once again alongside fellow Gallifrey One attendee Jemma Redgrave. Like Jemma, this will be Ingrid’s first appearance at Gallifrey One.|
|Adjoa Andoh played Martha Jones’ strong, stern mother Francine Jones in Series 3, reprising her role in “The Stolen Earth” and “Journey’s End” to close out Series 4. She also appeared, under heavy cat nun makeup, as Sister Jatt in the Series 2 story “New Earth”. This will be Adjoa’s first appearance at Gallifrey One.|
|Angela Bruce will be the second Brigadier to appear at Gallifrey One, the first being the legendary Nicholas Courtney who was a mainstay at Gallifrey One in the early days. Angela, of course, played Brigadier Winifred Bambera in the 1989 story “Battlefield”, alongside Courtney. This will be Angela’s first appearance at Gallifrey One.|
