Radio Free Skaro #273 – The Oncoming Stormageddon

Radio Free Skaro #273 – Click here to listen!

The penultimate episode of Series 6 featured the return of one of the great Doctor-companion teams that never happened. Matt Smith and James Corden, so perfectly matched in 2010’s “The Lodger”, reunited to amuse and delight in Gareth Roberts’s wonderful follow-up “Closing Time”, a story about which the Three Who Rule were unanimous in their opinion. The Cybermen also returned and were promptly dispensed with, but who cares about them, really? Also discussed in this podcast: the inevitable rapid-fire stats, new toys, favourite Doctors, rampant pluggery and more. Radio Free Skaro, here to help!

Radio Free Skaro #272 – Nimon Sci-Fi Con

Radio Free Skaro #272 – Click here to listen!

A minotaur, a question of fear and faith, and a turning point for the Doctor and his companions…not to mention a surreal hotel from Hell! The God Complex went under the RFS microscope this week, with a smattering of opinion both favourable and somewhat less so. Add a giant brick wall o’ stats, a Sarah Jane launch date, some new guests for Gallifrey 2012, and an interview with “The Girl Who Waited” scribe Tom MacRae, and you’ve got yourself an audio file of approximately an hour in length!

The Girl Who Waited was, to varying degrees, praised by the Three Who Rule as one of the best episodes (if not THE best, according to Warren) of this season, with acclaim for the direction, the visuals, the timey-wimey-ness, and most of all for Karen Gillan’s double performance as herself and…herself.

But wait! Torchwood: Miracle Day also wrapped up its 10 episode run with rockginas, immortals, f-bombs, and Oswald Danes doing what he does best: making the blood of civilized folk curdle.

Add a dollop of stats, DVD news and Matt Smith being a stylin’ mofo, and you’ve got yourself, well, a podcast!

Next week…..Night Terrors! Or, more accurately, The God Complex!

Radio Free Skaro #270 – Dolls Polyphony

Radio Free Skaro #270 – Click here to listen!

Fear Her, one of the less appreciated stories in the Doctor Who oeuvre, isn’t a story that the Three Who Rule reasoned (or hoped) would ever be brought up again in Doctor Who, but all three of your intrepid hosts got a distinct Chloe Webber/scribble monster/suburban England vibe from Mark Gatiss’s Night Terrors. That isn’t to say that they didn’t enjoy it, though. Also up for discussion was Episode 9 of Torchwood: Miracle Day, The Gathering, as that series hurdles, or stumbles, to its conclusion next week. All this and the usual dash and sprinkle of news, including the talk of the upcoming UNIT Box Set and some bona fide monumental viewing figures for SPACE in Canada.

Radio Free Skaro #267 – The UNIT Dating Controversy

Radio Free Skaro #267 – Click here to listen!

Torchwood continues its Miracle Day run with episode 6 and the lads sink their teeth into… well, there’s not much to sink their teeth into this week, is there? Nevertheless, rampant mastication of the worthy bits kills some time as we wait for more Doctor Who and for Torchwood to do something… anything. Also, lamentably, the Summer Classic Commentary Series comes to the end as the Three Who Rule tackle The Invasion’s latter episodes with their usual flare and panache and with the able assistance of their seagull frenemies.

More Torchwood (it’s still good!) and more stats (they’re still numbers!) and more news and a whole lot of blathering about Christopher Bailey’s Snakedance populate this episode of Radio Free Skaro as the Summer Classic Commentary series continues! The lads take a turn at fashion advice as the return of The Mara is talked over and as ever walk the line of decency as the notion of men in dresses gets a thorough investigation. Allons-y!

Torchwood talk continues to lead the way this summer as The Three Who Rule take a look at the third episode of Miracle Day, Dead of Night… and what do the lads think of it? In the news this week there’s talk of the new Doctor Who boots filler, the goings-on of the Doctor Who panel at San Diego Comic-Con, action figure and DVD updates and of course the requisite stats.

Radio Free Skaro #261 – The Torch-Ood Institute

Radio Free Skaro #261 – Click here to listen!

It’s Miracle Day! No, not that Torchwood series due to begin soon… the miracle is the fact The Three Who Rule are actually excited to watch Torchwood! To celebrate what we derisively once dubbed Torchwood: USA, the Radio Free Skaro lads invite Chris Sigma from The Ood Cast, who was fortunate enough to attend the London premiere of Miracle Day, to join the fun and present a spoiler-free look at what to expect from this new series. And the best part of all is you, dear listener, are not subjected to songs or sketches from the likes of Warren, Steven or Chris.

*No Oods were harmed in the making of this podcast.
