Radio Free Skaro #567 – The Clock Strikes Twelve


Download MP3

Capaldexit! Yes, the Three Who Rule were sideswiped (as was everyone else) by Peter Capaldi’s surprise announcement that he was leaving the role of The Doctor, and after admonishing the UK press for baseless speculation, the RFS crew engaged in frankly hypocritical predictions of their own. That plus stats, Series Ten news and a 70 minute(!) Miniscope about writer/director Terence Dudley round out this episode! Enjoy!

The mind veritably reels at this cornucopia of informational entertainments. But let’s be honest, you’re here for even more Rachel Talalay, and RFS delivers, as the acclaimed director joins us for the second of her two-part commentary, this one for “Hell Bent”!

rfs499The Doctor reunites with Ashildr/Me…but is she a friend of an enemy? More to the point, was “The Woman Who Lived” better or worse than the episode that preceded it, “The Girl Who Died?” Also, is it possible to contain the sheer amount of squee generated when Sir John Hurt was announced as a guest at Gallifrey One? Perhaps the antidote (or “anti-squee”, if you will) is an upcoming K-9 film…co-starring Omega? The mind reels! Anyway, listen on, and look out, England, Steven and Warren are coming to visit you next week!
