rfs556The Daleks return to North America this week from the dustbins of history and into your iTunes/BBC America/other in the form of “The Power of the Daleks” in its reanimated glory. And the Three Who Rule are on the case, in the form of interviews with both soundsmith extraordinaire Mark Ayres and Whostorian Toby Hadoke about the making of the animated episodes, as well as the upcoming DVD extras! We also have our usual review of Class, a look at new footgage from “The Return of Doctor Mysterio” and Children In Need, a bloggy Easter Egg from Jamie Mathieson, and more!

rfs552At long last, Class is here! Yes, two episodes of the newest spin-off of Doctor Who have landed (in the UK and Canada) and the Three Who Rule have their thoughts to share with you…unless you wish not to hear them, being in the United States! We’ve conveniently put bridging music before and after our review, and put the time of said review in the show notes, for you, our American listeners (who don’t download tv shows like fiendish criminal vandals). Besides that, we also have action dolly news, confirmation of Missy in Series 10 of Doctor Who, a discussion by three middle-aged nerds about the viewing habits of millennials, and more!

rfs54210 years! That’s a whole lot of talking by three jaunty Canadians about a British television program of little repute by the name of Professor Whom. But after a smattering of news, the Three Who Rule move quickly on to an extended series of interviews with the fine people with whom we’ve shared our podcasting adventures with, including: Ken Deep of Podshock fame, Deborah Stanish, Katrina Griffiths and Erika Ensign of Verity!, Chip Sudderth of the Two Minute Time Lord, and Simon Harries, John Williams and Neil Perryman of Tachyon TV! Phew! Here’s to ten more years of meandering drivel from Canadian interlopers who have no right to talk of Britain’s televisual crown jewel!

rfs540The Doctor Who news this week consists of action dollies, laments for the (on hiatus) Bookshelf Doctors, and not much else. But the Three Who Rule used their powers of bloviation to ponder, surmise, and otherwise cogitate for longer than was strictly necessary before getting to this week’s highlight, Part the First of our commentary for the 1968 story “The Web of Fear”. As an extra bonus, the commentary for the (still missing) Episode 3 features archive audio from missing episodes hunter Phil Morris!

Radio Free Skaro #512 – The New World Order


Download MP3

rfs512The Doctor Who world was rocked this week by the news that Steven Moffat will be stepping down as showrunner, to be replaced by Chris Chibnall, showrunner of Broadchurch and writer of Torchwood, Life on Mars and yes, Doctor Who fame. What did the Three Who Rule think of this seismic shift, not to mention the fact that there won’t be any new Who until Christmas of this year? More to the point, what are their views on digitizing Doctor Who pinball? Never let it be said we don’t focus on the important issues here at RFS. Just in case baseless speculation isn’t your thing, we also have an interview with Katy Manning, recorded at LI Who and presented here for your listening pleasure.
