The Doctor and her Time Pals sign up as temporary wage scoundrels at the titular “Kerblam!” (aka Space Amazon) and the Three Who Rule are here to tell you what they thought of this treatise on modern work, robots and bubble wrap along with news, stats, a special shift from Christmas to New Year’s Day and more! So fire up this podcast and get in line for Black Friday, Cyber Monday and whatever other arbitrary celebration of consumerism keeps annoying “teammates” from pestering you about productivity!

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”!

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! Let’s hope all of you have a happy New Year with no complications!

Radio Free Skaro #610 – And Then There’s The Accent

It’s the weekend of American Thanksgiving, which can only mean one thing in the Doctor Who world – Chicago TARDIS! Steven once again represented the Three Who Rule in the midwest, getting interviews, meeting many Doctor Who fans, and generally creating mayhem (he was in bed by 11:00pm every night). And this episode features an onstage interview with Doctor the Fifth, Peter Davison, and Tegan Jovanka herself, Janet Fielding! Also, Paul Booth drops by to talk about the various news items of the week, including many exciting details about the new release of “Shada”!

Radio Free Skaro #593 – School Ties and Martian Lies


Download MP3

The Quiet Times have returned, with the Series 10 finale and San Diego Comic-Con receding in the distance and a long wait to December 25 ahead of us. But that doesn’t stop the dogged determination of the Three Who Rule, who won’t let a little thing like a lack of new material stop them from chattering on about one Mr. Who! And as a bonus we have an interview with Class and Doctor Who director Wayne Yip and a roll of the randomizer to determine which classic commentary will happen next week! Dare you listen? You dare indeed!

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.

rfs518Streaming is the new stats! By which we mean there’s a lot of discussion this week of strange shifts in where and when one can watch Doctor Who, with Canadians having to turn to CraveTV (or the Space Channel), Americans confused as to if Doctor Who will be on Amazon Prime or not, and general chaos reigning supreme. So really, not like stats at all, which are rock-solid numbers indicating a result. But lo, we also have an interview with James Cooray Smith, the author of the Obverse Books Black Archive tome on the 1966 Doctor Who story, The Massacre, out very soon! Listen…and learn!
