Radio Free Skaro #680 – The Planet That Slept


Download MP3

A new set of shiny Blu-ray discs stuffed with Doctor Who content is on its way to store shelves in the form of the Season 18 box set, the third such season set from BBC Studios. So we decided to talk again to Russell Minton, executive producer of the whole range for BBC Studios, about the Season 18 set, and about the future of the range in general. There is also talk of special screenings for “Logopolis” (in the US) and “The Macra Terror” (in the UK) that occurred this past week, and Bradley Walsh posing for selfies with everyone during some public filming for Series 12 in Wales!

Radio Free Skaro #678 – Poster Child


Download MP3

It was a sad week in the Doctor Who fandom community as it lost Jennifer Adams Kelley, a titan involved with North American conventions since the 1990s. We pay tribute to her and her legacy with two of her dearest friends and fellow convention organizers, Shaun Lyon and Steve Hill. Graeme Curry, writer of “The Happiness Patrol”, also passed away all too soon. But to hopefully cheer us all up, we also present to you an interview from Gallifrey One with Radio Times Doctor Who poster artist and photographer Stuart Manning!

Radio Free Skaro #665 – The Revenge of Bandraginus V


Download MP3

“The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos” is upon us, and with it comes the end (almost) of Series 11, Jodie Whittaker’s first run as one Doctor Who, and the Time Fam’s dramatic arcs (such as there are) more or less..concluded? So what did the Three Who Rule think of this episode, the new series, Chris Chibnall’s efforts as Doctor Who showrunner and all other permutations thereof? Plus news of a quite Christmas-y nature, a title for the New Year’s Special, some Who-adjacent neatness and more!

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!

Radio Free Skaro #661 – The Undeadly Assassins


Download MP3

On the 100th anniversary of the Armistice being signed, it seemed fitting on the day of Remembrance that the tone of this week’s Doctor Who struck a more sombre tone, and that’s exactly what we got in “Demons of the Punjab”, written by Vinay Patel. The Three Who Rule give their thoughts on the episode, as well as all the news of the week that was, including an expanded stats section!
