Radio Free Skaro #605 – Moonage Daydream


Download MP3

There’s nothing Doctor Who-ish on TV until Christmas…but there is an hour with debonair man of the 1970s, Jon Pertwee, who graces the BBC iPlayer with an hour of his many charms in the imaginatively named “An Hour with Jon Pertwee!” There’s also movement afoot in things game, textual and action dolly, with Big Finish going (even more) digital, A Parliament worth of Dalek Dollies and possibly the premature end of LEGO Dimensions. Our Second Chances this week also marks the end of the Monk Trilogy as Drew Meyer joins us to look at “The Lie of the Land!”

rfs493One week to go until Doctor Who Series 9 premieres, and what better way to rev up the hype engines than a rather cryptic prologue featuring P-Cap, Karn and Ohila, last seen in “The Night of the Doctor”? In fact, all manner of activity is rolling to the boil in the Who-o-sphere, including a new Game Maker app coming soon from the BBC, Time Squad dollies to adorn your desk or crying chamber, and other fun bric-a-brac. And speaking of bricks, our feature interview this week is with Pete Hickman, BBC Worldwide Producer of Digital Entertainment and Games and driving force behind the Doctor Who portion of LEGO Dimensions!

rfs479Like a bolt from the blue came the first set of Gallifrey One guest announcements, including one Peter Davison, the Fifth Doctor but the first in our hearts (for this year, at any rate.) But lo, across the pond there was news of the Doctor Who Festival, to be held the same weekend in November as Long Island Who! Confused? The news is just the beginning of your confoundining (not a word) as the RFS crew and Nancy Alegria of The Happiness Patrol go into the woods for their “In the Forest of the Night” commentary!

Radio Free Skaro #476 – Ravolox and Bagels

Radio Free Skaro #476 – Click here to listen!

rfs476We promise, this is almost certainly the last time we jabber on about superhero movies…but that is in fact what happens at the start of this week’s episode, until Chris lobs a well-deserved boot heel into the proceedings and gets the Other Two Who Rule back on track and talking about Doctor Who…in the form of comic books! Oh, sweet irony. Sweeter still are a couple of vintage interviews supplied by (and in one case featuring) composer Dominic Glynn and iconoclastic Doctor Who producer John Nathan Turner! Interspersed with those chats are some preview tracks from Glynn’s new EP “The Ravolox Remixes”, available on iTunes May 18!
