rfs543Rumours, mumblesuch and nonsense dominated the news week, from Power of the Daleks teases that weren’t to the chance (slim to in actual fact…none) that Doctor Who would shoot soon in Warren’s own homestead of Vancouver. All poppycock! But you can count on the veracity and verisimilitude of the Three Who Rule as they tackle another exciting set of…Fluid Links!

rfs532There’s very little news this week, as per usual, and what we do know comes from cons across the land, including Michelle Gomez talking about her future on the show at Fan Expo Dallas, and where Peter Capaldi also proved (once again) his fan bona fides with an amazing imitation of a scene from “Day of the Daleks”! But vast these mere baubles of information aside and drink in the thoughts of the Three Who Rule as they answer your questions with the return of….Fluid Links!

Radio Free Skaro #523 – Girl, You’ll Be A Woman Soon


Download MP3

rfs523Japes, buffoonery and falsehoods dominate the news this week, with beloved entertainer and Deadite murderer Bruce Campbell claiming he’ll be the next Doctor..all in service of April Fool’s Day. What a card! And bless him for trying because there’s almost nothing else happening as the Year of No Who limps along. However, we at RFS are doing our part to fill the gap with our Series 9 commentaries, including this week’s look at “The Girl Who Died” with Alyssa from Whovian Feminism!

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.

Radio Free Skaro #467 – Click here to listen!

rfs467Steven, Warren and Chip are back this week with a news list that could charitably be described as anemic, though it also covers the charitable doings of one Peter Capaldi and goes from Comic Relief to comic books to conventions and…well, not a lot more. It is the slow time for Doctor Who, after all. BUT! There is also a commentary track for Episode 4 of Series 8, “Listen”, featuring Steven, Warren, Chris and Telos AM co-host (and host of Colour Separation Overlay!) and all around fine gentleman Lindsey Mayers, examining the finer points of monsters, blankets and the end of the universe!
