Radio Free Skaro #670 – Curran Account


Download MP3

Have you ever wanted to see block transfer computation on the big screen? Your time has come as “Logopolis” hits theatres this March in the US and the BFI in February in advance of the release of the Doctor Who Season 18 box set! And as if that isn’t enough deep dive craziness, Big Finish is going to fill your summer with stories of the War Master and the Eighth Doctor politely nodding at each other and perhaps battling for the fate of the universe. Plus tales of tat, accolades and awards, and an interview from Chicago TARDIS with Vincent Van Gogh himself, actor Tony Curran!

Radio Free Skaro #668 – DIY of the Daleks


Download MP3

After waiting a whole series for a classic Doctor Who monster to rear its ugly noggin and fight the Time Fam, the OG Badass of Whodom, one D.Alek itself made a splash and racked up a pretty serious body count in “Resolution,” the New Year’s Day special and the last new Who we’ll see in some time. So what did Steven, Chris and Warren think of this murderous romp through Sheffield and various dank interiors? Fetch some peanut butter to grease geo-feudal locks, sit down with a nice glass of mulled wine and a custard cream, and enjoy!

With no new Doctor Who until New Year’s Day in the form of “Resolution”, how will the Three Who Rule cope with their withdrawal pangs? Why, by celebrating the arrival of the Number of the Beast, Episode 666, with a commentary for the Series 2 episodes “The Impossible Planet” and “The Satan Pit”, two of the most devil-centric episodes ever! (And also two of the best Doctor Who episodes ever!) Yes, we’re aware of the Daemons pedants, move along. Plus we have Series 11 Blu-Ray news, Series 11 soundtrack info, some tat discussion, and possibly even scarier than ol’ Scratchman himself, stats!

The Doctor and her Time Pals sign up as temporary wage scoundrels at the titular “Kerblam!” (aka Space Amazon) and the Three Who Rule are here to tell you what they thought of this treatise on modern work, robots and bubble wrap along with news, stats, a special shift from Christmas to New Year’s Day and more! So fire up this podcast and get in line for Black Friday, Cyber Monday and whatever other arbitrary celebration of consumerism keeps annoying “teammates” from pestering you about productivity!

The countdown is on with one week to a new Doctor and a new era, and the media frenzy continues unabated with Jodie Whittaker playing an entirely non-canon Theremin on the Graham Norton Show, talking on BBC Radio6, giving us the first(ish) glimpse at her Doctor with a 53 second clip, and frankly a staggering amount of news that can’t possibly be summed up with these pithy remarks. We also have a quick visit from Paul Cornell to discuss his last-ever Doctor Who week available now in a new Titan Comics Humble Bundle, and last week’s Series 11 panel from Edmonton Expo, with Earp Chirpers and Whovians Erika Ensign and Annette Wierstra, Variant Edmonton comic book purveyor (and Doctor Whoocher) Danica LeBlanc…and Steven.

With a mere two weeks to go before Series 11 of Doctor Who graces our screens, the news is arriving with increased ferocity, including a new trailer, articles in Doctor Who Magazine and the New York Times (!), cinema screenings, media appearances by one J. Whittaker, and more! But while you look forward to October 7, why not jump back through the decades to 1971 (and forward to Earth’s future) with our hair-obsessed commentary of episodes four to six of “Colony in Space!”

Beginnings and endings this week as the build-up to Series 11 continues with the official premiere in Sheffield on September 24 – and you could be there! (But not to actually see the screening). And we tip our toque to the Doctor Who Information Network, Canada’s longest running Doctor Who fan organization, closing its doors at the end of October. But the main event is a trip back to 1971 and the planet Uxarieus as we commentate overtop of the first three episodes of “Colony In Space”!
