|The last (sniff) stats update for the season, Gallifrey One news, Dalek novelizations, and Dalek vinyl releases are all in the mix in this week’s news, but the meat of the matter is an interview with director Wayne Yip, who ushered New Year’s special “Resolution” onto our screens! Join Mr. Yip as he discusses stunt driving pod cars, remote control Daleks, the logistics of directing, and more!|

|The Three Who Rule are slightly in tatters this week with Warren away in the Deep South and Chris fighting a cold that would easily fell the entire population of a space ark that left Earth in the 57th Segment of Time, Monoids included! Fortunately, all is quiet on the news front again this week as the world of Doctor Who is focused internally on actually making new episodes for broadcast in the fall. As a result, we turn to the past again as Steven, Warren, and Chris commentate over the final three episodes of the 1971 serial The Mind of Evil, featuring The Master, rockets, epic gun battles, and some delectable soup.|

|For the first time in a long time, we’ve got some upcoming North American Doctor Who DVD releases not featuring a title that’s been recently released in the UK.
June 12 will see the release of the special editions (née Revisitations) of the Patrick Troughton/Ice Warriors story The Seeds of Death along with Peter Davison’s lone battle against the Daleks, Resurrection of the Daleks.
Full special features have yet to be announced by Warner, though it’s safe to assume the North American releases will offer the same bonuses as folks got in the UK. With these releases, North America is finally caught up to the UK as far as Revisitations titles are concerned, with one exception – there’s still neither hide nor hair of the special edition of Spearhead From Space on this side of the Atlantic. Is it an issue with the Fleetwood Mac song? Who knows…
Also, as previously announced on Radio Free Skaro, June 12 will see the North American release of Series Five of The Sarah Jane Adventures, an offering which will indeed include the lone bonus item Goodbye Bannerman Road, Chris Chapman’s wonderful look at the series and the passing of its lead actress and star, Lis Sladen.
The Doctor Who releases will each be 2-disc sets and carry an MSRP of $34.98. Series Five of The Sarah Jane Adventures is a single disc release with an MSRP of $19.98. More details about these Doctor Who and Sarah Jane Adventures releases can be found at TVShowsOnDVD.com.
Update: Full cover art for Seeds of Death and Resurrection of the Daleks is now available. Click on the artwork for any of these titles for a larger version.
|DVDs and Series 6 news were the order of the day as the 2011 DVD release schedule was unveiled this past week in Doctor Who Magazine, and boy howdy are there some puzzling combinations of stories into box sets. The upcoming series of Doctor Who gets a bit of a different look with a newly-announced writer and a shuffling in the order of episodes, and there’s even a bit of a natter about Doctor Who Magazine’s list of who to follow on Twitter (hint: we’re on that list, nudge nudge). A look at controversial writer/script editor Eric Saward rounds out the show with some great discussion of his influence and reach, along with the selection of next week’s miniscope subject… and just who will that be?|

|The Pandorica Opens was the focus of most of this episode of Radio Free Skaro, thanks to a light news week. Good thing, too, as Pandorica was another triumph from Series 5, featuring many power mad conspirators – Daleks, Sontarans, Cybermen – gathering together to fight their greatest enemy, The Doctor. Such a visual feast put the Three Who Rule in danger of becoming transfixed on what they were watching, but they managed to mostly steer clear of the silence for the time being. Ah, yes. The Silence. More on that next week…|
