Exciting times here for the Three Who Rule as it’s time for the first Miniscope of 2019! The subject is writer Jamie Mathieson, scribe of four stories from the Peter Capaldi era (“Mummy on the Orient Express”, “Flatline”, “The Girl Who Died” (co-written with Steven Moffat), and “Oxygen”). And in the news, reports of a new production designer for Series 12, a host of new and upcoming Doctor Who related media releases, and an important sale from the fine vendors who were to appear at the now canceled ReGeneration Who!

With a mere two weeks to go before Series 11 of Doctor Who graces our screens, the news is arriving with increased ferocity, including a new trailer, articles in Doctor Who Magazine and the New York Times (!), cinema screenings, media appearances by one J. Whittaker, and more! But while you look forward to October 7, why not jump back through the decades to 1971 (and forward to Earth’s future) with our hair-obsessed commentary of episodes four to six of “Colony in Space!”

Radio Free Skaro #628 – Hulke Smash!


Download MP3

A cranky Chris (Eccleston), a snippet of Steven (Moffat) and a serendipitous Series 11 opening sequence concept are all in the news this week, but let’s be honest, you’re here for the trenchant insights of one Kyle Anderson of Doctor Who: The Writer’s Room podcast and Nerdist fame (and, we suppose, the Three Who Rule’s meagre offerings) as we delve into the second of our three-part Malcolm Hulke Miniscope with a look at “Colony in Space”, “The Sea Devils”, “Frontier in Space”, and “Invasion of the Dinosaurs”!

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!

Radio Free Skaro #583 – The Meddling Monks

We’re at the midway point of Series 10 (sniff) so what better time for Steven Moffat to check in on the show he runs by penning another episode himself in the form of “Extremis”, a mind-bending escapade that took viewers from England to the Vatican and all points in between. Or did it…? Once again, the inestimable Kyle Anderson steps in as a replacement for one of the Three (in place of Warren this time) to join Chris and Steven on this review. What did they think? What of the Monks? And the occupant of the Vault? In this podcast we are revealed…

It’s time for a visit to The Dead Planet to see some Mutants in “The Daleks” with the Three Who Rule and Doctor Who: The Writers Room podcaster, Nerdist scribe and gentleman bounder Kyle Anderson as a special guest! Thrill to Steven’s knowledge of televisual minutiae, twirl to Kyle’s searing insights, sashay to Chris’s detailed analysis and recoil at the sight of Warren’s brain melting at the (in his sole opinion) grinding tedium of the early Hartnell era! Plus news like the first official Series 10 trailer, but who needs that when you’ve got survivors escaping an ordeal and an ambush, thus expediting a rescue!
