Radio Free Skaro #592 – I Was Fond Of Her Too, Jamie


Download MP3

Comic-Con! Yes, SDCC has come and gone once again, and with it we now have a trailer for “Twice Upon a Time,” the swan-song for one P-Cap and the glorious retconning of one D-Brad as the First Doctor, along with words and thoughts from gentleman scribe Kyle Anderson, who gives us an almost-live look from the ground as he left the BBC panel, as well as filling us in the Classic Who panel he moderated featuring Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sophie Aldred! Plus a simply staggering pile of news about dollies, the continued stir over a female Doctor, and so..much..swag. And sadly, we also have to report the passing of both Deborah Watling and Trevor Baxter, who will be sorely missed.

Lo, the (almost) end has come, and the Three Who Rule have thoughts, feels and comments about “The Doctor Falls,” the penultimate episode for both director Rachel Talalay and showrunner/writer Steven Moffat. What did the three scoundrels think of this stew of Masters and Mondasians? More to the point, what’s going on with the First Doctor and the upcoming Xmas special? So many questions! Next week, the return of Fluid Links, but only pertaining to Series 10, so no questions about Nimons and Axons!

It’s a week before new Doctor Who, which means a veritable tsunami of news, previews and madness, including the surprise reveal that John Simm will come back as the Master and possibly cause a shipping paradox the likes of which hasn’t been seen since SuperWhoLock! In other surprises, Britbox announced they’re streaming most of Classic Who, “The Return of Doctor Mysterio” was nominated for a Hugo, and we have a new segment called Second Chances looking at that very story with Titan Comic Tenth Doctor scribe Nick Abadzis!

Dollies, Nardole and a reliably batty, 83 years young Tom Baker are the mere froth on the fancy latte of Whographica, an exquisite collection of infographics featuring incredibly nerdy deep dives into the corners and recesses of Doctor Who trivia. We interviewed authors Simon Guerrier, Steve O’Brien and Ben Morris, to find out what went into this expansive and frankly obsessive labour of love. Adjust your rectangular framed glasses, straighten your turtleneck, and enjoy! And listen in to see how you can win a copy of Whographica (courtesy BBC Books) of your very own!
