With mere days to go before the Doctor Who New Year’s Day special, “Resolution”, the Three Who Rule (and their LEGO Fluid Links doppelgängers) are getting antsy, but at least there’s plenty of news to delve into, including Gallifrey One updates, more stats, additional Christmas content from both the BBC and Doctor Puppet, and most excitingly, an interview from Chicago TARDIS with director extraordinaire of both Classic and Modern Who, Graeme Harper! Listen and be filled with pace and energy!

The Doctor and her fam…errr, TARDIS Team land back in Sheffield and smack dab into spiders, ethically dubious American businessmen and RTD-level family drama in “Arachnids in the UK”, the latest instalment of the eleventh series of Doctor Who. Will the quintessentially Whovian juxtaposition of the domestic with the deeply weird engage the Three Who Rule, or will arachnophobia turn to eight-legged tedium? You won’t know until you listen! Also, stats. Harrumph.

Radio Free Skaro #658 – The Spirit of Rosa


Download MP3

For a show about time travel, Doctor Who doesn’t really go deep on matters historical, preferring a quick tour and a laugh to really getting into events as they unfold. But that changed this week with “Rosa,” a look at how civil rights hero Rosa Parks herself changed the world, and how the Doctor and the Time Team deal with both alien threats and a very different (but also somewhat familiar) world to 2018. What did Steven, Warren, and Chris think of the episode? And will a very special addition to the stats report cause Warren to finally lose what’s left of his mind?
