Radio Free Skaro #517 – Quel Dommage

Download MP3

rfs517It’s the post-Gally period, which means lots of pent-up news of middling interest, debates about terrible video games of yesteryear, silly spoofs and condescension towards Britain’s national treasures. But the treat of the week is a previously unaired interview with one Russell T. Davies from 2011, courtesy of writer and interviewer Jeffrey Berman. Jeffrey hosted a show seen locally in Los Angeles where he interviewed notable writers about their work and writing process. The first season aired in 2008, but while interviews were conducted in 2011 (including RTD) they have never been heard…until now! Enjoy!

rfs488Can three idiots blab on like maniacs about nothing for the better part of an hour? Emphatically yes! If you’ve ever wanted to hear rampant, baseless speculation about a certain possible episode coming in Series 9 that is most likely untrue and frankly insane, well then, friend, this is your podcast! Aslo if you’d like to hear writer Paul Cornell, artist Neil Edwards and Titan Comics editor Andrew James talk about the upcoming Doctor Who Comics Day on August 15, as well as the mini-series “Four Doctors”, this is also your day! Everything’s coming up you!

Radio Free Skaro #468 – Ten Years On

Radio Free Skaro #468 – Click here to listen!

rfs468Ten years ago, a dream came true for many long-time fans of Doctor Who. A show long feared dead returned, stronger and better than ever….but in order for that to happen, many talented people had to come together in front of the camera and behind the scenes for a show no-one yet believed in. Director Joe Ahearne was one such individual, directing five Eccleston-era stories and witness to the chaos of that first season. He spoke to us about those days, his experiences working with Eccleston and RTD, and more! We also have snippets from press conferences held at the time, to give you more of a flavor of the atmosphere as the clock counted down to the return of Doctor Who. Happy anniversary, everyone!

rfs432With San Diego Comic Con’s annual media megashow winding down, Radio Free Skaro brought in a Special Report from Nerdist editor and all around fine fellow Kyle Anderson as our man on the scene to let us know about the Big! Who! News! almost live from the source. Well, it turns out there hasn’t been very much news to speak of Who-wise, with the BBC likely focusing their energies on launching their world tour, and….showing us a new 15 second trailer. And……showing the premiere in cinemas worldwide! Holy cats! Despite the dearth of SDCC news, rest assured our list is chockablock full of items of interest, and as if that weren’t enough, we also have the last Fluid Links for quite some time! Madness!

rfs424The Three Who Rule tuned their brainwaves to Doctor Who Magazine’s latest poll naming all of our favourite show’s stories from best to worst, along with favourite (and not so favourite) Doctors, companions, and other movers and shakers. Did they agree with the choices of thousands upon thousands of fans? Let’s just say there was some dissent in the ranks!

Mere preamble, however, to Fluid Links, where we answer your questions, from the sublime to the silly, about Doctor Who and somewhat less Time Lord related activity. If you’ve ever wanted to know what podcasts Warren listens to, here you go! And let’s be honest, you’re dying to know. Really.

rfs381The Three Who Rule welcome back our very good friend Chip from the Two-minute Time Lord podcast as we all talk over Neil Gaiman’s most recent Doctor Who effort, Nightmare in Silver. Has some time and distance since the story’s initial broadcast allowed our hearts to warm to it more, or was the extremely divisive reaction from fandom warranted and still valid? Will the effort satisfy 80s Hair Band pedants? News of the week, with Chip filling in for a very busy Warren, and which includes talk of what might just be the worst merchandise tie-in ever, rounds out this episode of Radio Free Skaro. Excelsior!

With just a week to go until the 2011 Doctor Who Christmas Special, the Three Who Rule cast their eyes back to a simpler time, before River Song was related to the Ponds and when a baby could turn into a puddle of goo and still be broadcast pre-watershed. Yes, “A Good Man Goes to War” was our commentary this week, with all the usual off-topic and off-color discussion you’ve come to know and somewhat tolerate. Add chatter of our live show at Gallifrey 2012 (two months from now!), news of departing companions, Season 7’s structure, and Fendahl action figures, and you’ve got yourself a podcast!

Doctor Who Wrap Party Videos

Two videos produced exclusively for the wrap party for The End of Time (and David Tennant’s, Russell T Davies’s, and Julie Gardner’s farewell to Doctor Who) have made their way to the internet. If you haven’t seen them yet, you can now below!
