Radio Free Skaro #577 – Second Chances


Download MP3

It’s a week before new Doctor Who, which means a veritable tsunami of news, previews and madness, including the surprise reveal that John Simm will come back as the Master and possibly cause a shipping paradox the likes of which hasn’t been seen since SuperWhoLock! In other surprises, Britbox announced they’re streaming most of Classic Who, “The Return of Doctor Mysterio” was nominated for a Hugo, and we have a new segment called Second Chances looking at that very story with Titan Comic Tenth Doctor scribe Nick Abadzis!

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!

rfs550With New York Comic-Con upon us, the Doctor Who news is (at last) coming fast and furious with two(!) trailers for Class out in the wild and a panel featuring Steven Moffat, Peter Capaldi, Matt Lucas, Brian Minchin and new companion Pearl Mackie at the con teasing what’s in store for the Christmas special and beyond! And with Chris off in the UK foraging for beer and scotch eggs, it was up to friend of the show Chip Sudderth to ably assume the third chair to cogitate upon matters Who with the Two Who Rule. We also have a report from Kim and Sage of Head Over Feels direct from NYCC! It’s a cornucopia of news on this, the most Canadian of Thanksgivings.

rfs526New Doctor Who! A whole two minutes of it, featuring just-announced new companion Pearl Mackie, AKA Bill, AKA AsBill (according to some Wags of Fandom.)
