And so the Peter Capaldi era ends, the Jodie Whittaker era begins, and the David Bradley era sneaks in through the side door for “Twice Upon A Time”, the 2017 Doctor Who Christmas Special. But what did the Three Who Rule think? Join them as they examine the final story of the Steven Moffat era, and the precious few seconds we have until Autumn 2018 of an entirely new Doctor! And, by popular (two people, let’s be honest) request, we also have a spoiler-filled discussion of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, squared away near the end for those of you who enjoy that sort of thing.

As we hurtle towards Christmas, and more importantly, the premiere of “Twice Upon A Time”, the BBC has delivered a snippet of said story featuring one Peter Capaldi, David Bradley and Mark Gatiss trading badinage in Twelve’s TARDIS, and it is a delight. Also, Steven Moffat was announced to appear at the biggest Doctor Who convention in North America, Gallifrey One, to the general giddiness of the Three Who Rule. Besides all this news, we also have the second part of Warren’s interview with director Rachel Talalay, along with a look at one her stories for our final Second Chances segment with comedian and writer Riley Silverman!

We have a long time to wait for new Who (not counting Peter Capaldi’s swan song this Christmas) but already rumors are swirling about how incoming showrunner Chris Chibnall will give us his vision of the good Doctor. In the meantime, we have DVDs headed our way along with an animated version of Shada, the red-headed stepchild of not-quite-lost classic Who stories. And this week’s Second Chances features author and Reality Bomb podcaster Graeme Burk, with his (and our) look at…”The Pyramid at the End of the World”!

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.

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!

Lo, the (almost) end has come, and the Three Who Rule have thoughts, feels and comments about “The Doctor Falls,” the penultimate episode for both director Rachel Talalay and showrunner/writer Steven Moffat. What did the three scoundrels think of this stew of Masters and Mondasians? More to the point, what’s going on with the First Doctor and the upcoming Xmas special? So many questions! Next week, the return of Fluid Links, but only pertaining to Series 10, so no questions about Nimons and Axons!

Live from Gloucestershire, it’s Radio Free Skaro! With Steven visiting the United Kingdom, it seemed only right to watch and review this week’s Doctor Who (the show, not the character) in the nation where it was created. And so noted Doctor Who writer Paul Cornell and esteemed podcaster Dave Probert join Steven in talking about “World Enough and Time”, a dazzling writing effort from Steven Moffat, directed with chilling precision by Rachel Talalay, and acted to perfection by the main cast. Listen in to talk about the episode, about how the promotion of the series may have muted its impact, and a live stats report to the delight of all!
