• Radio Free Skaro #487 – Dinosaurs in a Lighthouse

    Despite a somewhat sparse news list this week, the Three Who Rule managed to engage in ill-informed badinage for longer than was strictly necessary, covering exciting topics like a new and even more evil form of stats, and the differences between versions of Netflix. Thrilling! But lest you think that’s ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #486 – The Devil in Red Velvet

    Conventions 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 ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #481 – Tin Can Danny

    The news reached dire levels of non-existence this week, but the Three Who Rule soldiered on in exactly the sort of way Twelve would have roundly disapproved of. Despite there being little movement other than comic book rumblings (in the fall, no less!) there was a light at the end ...

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!

rfs477If Radio Free Skaro was ever made into a lackluster dystopian future series of adventures for the tween set (which it won’t, ever), it would have to be called “Digression,” because that was the tenor of the first few minutes of this episode. Eurovision is rightly disparaged, Warren is baffled by football, and Steven vainly (sort of) tries to get things back on track by lovingly describing Peter Capaldi’s swelling bouffant. Gross. But there’s also a commentary for the Jamie Mathieson penned “Mummy on the Orient Express,” featuring Reality Bomb’s own Alex Kennard! You have 66 seconds to start listening!

rfs471It’s a little early to start talking about Gallifrey One’s next con in 2016..or is it? Not since tickets go on sale on May 4th (10 a.m. Pacific) and the Marriott’s block of hotel room goes on sale a week later on May 11th! And if the world’s greatest convention isn’t your thing, some sweet faux-Target novel covers of Series 8 stories might be to your liking. No? How about some superbly crafted pewter figures of Silurians? Old William Hartnell footage? Calgary Expo news? Not easy to please, are you? Fine, have an interview with Doctor Who composer Murray Gold, then, and hear him talk about creating music for Doctor Who in 2005 and in 2015, and also hear him reveal details about the upcoming Series 8 soundtrack. Ingrate.

rfs469Happy post-10th Who birthday, everyone! What with Peter Capaldi visiting the Doctor Who Experience and entertaining children with birthday cakes and charm, it’s easy to forget that other things were happening in the world of Who this week, like Big Finish announcing they’ll be making their audio adventures until at least 2020, or a mad genius 3D printing a bust of the aforementioned Mr. Capaldi. All mere preamble though, as this week we bring you an interview with biographer Richard Marson, who is following up his excellent book on John Nathan-Turner with “Drama and Delight: The Life of Verity Lambert.” Intrigued?
