Radio Free Skaro #567 – The Clock Strikes Twelve


Download MP3

Capaldexit! Yes, the Three Who Rule were sideswiped (as was everyone else) by Peter Capaldi’s surprise announcement that he was leaving the role of The Doctor, and after admonishing the UK press for baseless speculation, the RFS crew engaged in frankly hypocritical predictions of their own. That plus stats, Series Ten news and a 70 minute(!) Miniscope about writer/director Terence Dudley round out this episode! Enjoy!

Radio Free Skaro #533 – The First Second of Eternity

rfs533Let’s just take it as read that there was no news this week of any consequence and move right to the main event. Director Rachel Talalay joins Steven and Warren this week for a commentary on “Heaven Sent”, the penultimate episode of this series of Doctor Who and, let’s be honest, one of the best episodes of the show ever to be produced, old or new. And next week she’s back with Hell Bent with Steven and Chris! But why are you reading this? Listen and enjoy!

rfs502Goodbye England, and hello New York! Long Island, to be precise, the home of Long Island Who and the setting of this episode of Radio Free Skaro. Steven, Warren, and Chris took in “Sleep No More,” Mark Gattis’s found footage exploration of sleep deprivation and eye gunk, and then leapt to the stage in front of a live audience to give ill informed opinions and generally ponce about! (Note: there is a slight buzz for the first six minutes of the recording, but it disappears after that.)

rfs490Another Hugos has come and gone, and with it two-thirds of the Radio Free Skaro crew can cross “host pre and post show at the Hugos and ad-lib for almost a half hour during same” off their bucket list. Though the Hugos were…dogged with controversy, in the eye of the storm all was calm and in fact Steven and Warren (along with Verity’s own Erika Ensign) were pleased to attend their first Worldcon, an international celebration of science fiction and fantasy that pre-dates (and was interrupted by) World War II! And as if that wasn’t enough, the Two and Verity Who Rule bring you all the latest Doctor Who news, of which there is a smattering! Enjoy!

Radio Free Skaro #489 – Click here to listen!

rfs489A new trailer for Series 9 of Doctor Who was released this week, simultaneously stoking and dampening the fires of Steven and Warren’s clinically insane theories regarding the upcoming Capaldis of Pompeii story/rumour/nonsense. But more lunacy awaits, with Tom Baker intoning that he is joining the Star Wars universe (!?), Hacette putting out a mammoth collection of Doctor Who books chronicling the history of the show from start to finish, and the Doctor Who Fan Show interviewing Titans Comics impresario Andrew James (link in the show notes). We also have an interview with Hugos person-in-charge David D’Antonio, who talks to Steven about the upcoming Worldcon in Spokane and the Hugo Awards taking place at said con. Tune into the pre and post Hugos live show next Saturday on UStream to see Steven and Warren debase themselves like grovelling insects on the newfangled invention of video!

rfs488Can three idiots blab on like maniacs about nothing for the better part of an hour? Emphatically yes!

rfs486Conventions and clips dominate the news, with events in Germany, Australia and of course goings on concerning the upcoming Long Island Who, but also a look back at the New Adventures era through the fine folk at Myth Makers and a very…old-fashioned look through newsreel footage at the wedding of Jon Pertwee. The Man Himself is also the subject of a recently unearthed (and Youtubed) documentary, not to mention the focus of much praise from current TARDIS resident Peter Capaldi, who praises Three in an interview with Christel Dee on the Doctor Who Fan Show. All mere prelude to the return of Fluid Links, where we answer your questions about the program, no matter how silly or sublime!
