Trailer! Teaser? Either way, a rather brief look at Series 11 of Doctor Who that shows the new friends Ryan, Yasmin, and Graham, a brief shot of Jodie Whittaker as Doctor Who #13, and several unhealthy food options was released to the world just before this podcast recording! Yes, the PR onslaught has begun, with Jodie on the cover of EW, dolly news, San Diego Comic-Con news, Amazon listings, and and AND a miniscope featuring Daniel Nettheim, director of “The Zygon Invasion” and “The Zygon Inversion”, “Extremis”, and “The Pyramid at the End of the World”!

Progress, in rumour form at any rate, as a tentative and maybe kinda sorta true list of directors for Series 11 makes its way onto the internet, along with scuttlebutt of a BBC, Channel 4 and ITV streaming service in the works. Not to leave Canada out fo the mix, “Genesis of the Daleks” tickets finally go on sale so those of us will finally be able to view 1970s PAL video on the big screen, as it was truly meant to be seen. And speaking of viewing things in a right and proper manner, we have the second half of our gripping and not at all ponderous commentary on “The Sensorites”! Grab your stimulant of choice and enjoy!

Radio Free Skaro #620 – Doctor, I Let You Go


Download MP3

With months to go before new episodes and a new Doctor, fans and indeed the media are grabbing at any vague crumb they can find, as evidenced by the Radio Times online arm clickbaiting their way into several stories telling us…precisely nothing. But ex-Who poobah Steven Moffat also spoke recently about what he would have done had David Tennant stayed on as the Doctor (spoilers: more or less series 6) and Titan’s Doctor Who line is coming back this summer for Free Comic Book Day, and will in some way introduce their take on Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor! But the main event is the second half of our look at Steven Moffat’s time showrunning Doctor Who, as Heather Berberet, Kyle Anderson and Paul Booth return to look at the Peter Capaldi era!

A year is about to expire, with a new 365 days around the sun just around the corner, and with this transition comes…stats. Yes, those of you who need to know the intimate details of eyeballs upon telescreens during the airing of “Twice Upon a Time”, fret no longer, we have all that information and more, including a truly mindbending look at how television scientists (including several Restoration Team boffins) extracted footage of Morecambe and Wise from a film canister full of goo. Plus news of a Bill Potts action dolly, Britbox coming to Canada, and an interview from Chicago TARDIS with three Doctors, the trio of physicians in question being Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy!
