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.

It’s official! Doctor Who, starring one Jodie Whittaker as Dr. Who, will air on October 7 worldwide (well, the UK, USA, and Canada, so far, and October 8 in Australia), and we’re pleased as punch about it. To build up and celebrate the impending arrival of Thirteen, BBC America is doing a timey-wimey marathon, Australia is doing cinema screenings the next day, and Canada’s own Space is…showing the episode. Plus we have Edmonton Expo news, some gushing over the upcoming (circa 1981) Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Blu-ray, and an interview with man-about-town and TV Years editor Graham Kibble-White!

The Three Who Rule return for another episode from Gallifrey One in Los Angeles, where they’ve been blown away by the top-notch insights and hilarity of the guests in attendance, from outgoing showrunner Steven Moffat’s take no prisoners Q&As to Camille Coduri’s hilarious response to “what’s your favorite sonic screwdriver?” But there’s still comic book news, effects updates and the debut of Britbox Canada to consider, along with an interview with series producer Brian Minchin!
