• Radio Free Skaro #486 – The Devil in Red Velvet

    Conventions and clips dominate the news, with events in Germany, Australia and of course goings on concerning the upcoming Long Island Who, but also a look back at the New Adventures era through the fine folk at Myth Makers and a very...old-fashioned look through newsreel footage at the wedding of ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #485 – Past Christmas

    Guest announcements for Gallifrey One and Chicago TARDIS! LEGO Doctor Who talk! Capaldi dolly banter! Warren becoming enraged by Star Trek: Into Darkness and almost saying a naughty word! Yes, it's business as usual again here at Radio Free Skaro headquarters after the madness that was San Diego Comic-Con, but ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #484 – San Diego Capaldi-Con

    Nerd Christmas! Yes, San Diego Comic-Con is wrapping up for another year, but you can keep your Batmans and your Supermans and your Deadpools and your WHO CARES NEW DOCTOR WHO TRAILER! LEGO DIMENSIONS WITH ALL THE DOCTORS! And most importantly, 5.5 INCH P-CAP DOLLY! Of course there was much ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #483 – The Adventures of Space Dad

    With San Diego Comic-Con mere days away, the mystery, hinting, and oblique teasing is reaching a fever pitch, with not only the main players on Doctor Who’s creative team storming Hall H on Thursday, July 9, but also a Titan Comics panel to whet your fannish interest, along with toys, ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #482 – Once Upon A Time In America

    In a move sure to shake the very foundations of audio drama, Big Finish is introducing new series Doctor Who characters into the BF-i-verse, and River Song will be the tip of the proverbial spear in this assault of awesomeness. That was but one (but probably the coolest) bit of ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #481 – Tin Can Danny

    The news reached dire levels of non-existence this week, but the Three Who Rule soldiered on in exactly the sort of way Twelve would have roundly disapproved of. Despite there being little movement other than comic book rumblings (in the fall, no less!) there was a light at the end ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #480 – The Talons of Dr. Chang

  • Radio Free Skaro #479 – Run Forest Run

    Like a bolt from the blue came the first set of Gallifrey One guest announcements, including one Peter Davison, the Fifth Doctor but the first in our hearts (for this year, at any rate.) But lo, across the pond there was news of the Doctor Who Festival, to be held ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #478 – Shallow Grave

    The news this week is sparse, so of course conspiracy theories abounded amongst the Three Who Rule involving Zimbabwe, missing episodes, cricket, and madness. But lo, there was a small morsel of news, and that was the fact that San Diego Comic Con will in fact have a Doctor Who ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #477 – Sarcopha-Gus

    If Radio Free Skaro was ever made into a lackluster dystopian future series of adventures for the tween set (which it won’t, ever), it would have to be called “Digression,” because that was the tenor of the first few minutes of this episode. Eurovision is rightly disparaged, Warren is baffled ...

Radio Free Skaro #220 – Click here to listen

The internet exploded in Doctor Who land this past week with fans beside themselves about Regenergate and Gallifrey One hotel rooms, which caused the Three Who Rule to take time out of this episode to allay those fears. Long stories short: Don’t Panic. Everything’s fine. After those fires were ably extinguished, it was on to the commentary for The Vampires of Venice, a mid-series tome that inspired overwhelming indifference from two members of the Radio Free Skaro team. Did that opinion change…?

Radio Free Skaro #191 – Click here to listen

The new series of Doctor Who is less than a week away and with the question of Matt Smith still largely unanswered, the Three Who Rule were glad of the first proper clips from the new series so as to get a feel for the character. Add to the mix yet another new trailer as well as an extended interview with Matt Smith by Jonathan Ross, talk of the new TARDIS design on Doctor Who Confidential and descriptions for future episodes before we’ve even seen the first one and the bottom line is excitement! The Miniscope even makes a one-off return, focused squarely at the Who oeuvre, or Whoeuvre if you will, of new show runner Steven Moffat.

Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith appeared on the March 26 edition of Friday Night with Jonathan Ross, and he brought this trailer with him. It’s a slightly longer version of the trailer that came out after the BBC press launch, except much more tantalizing…:

A new trailer from BBC America has come out, rife with new clips and scenes not glimpsed yet in any other trailer. And, yeah, it’s good:

spacebadgeThe Three Who Rule return in the latest SPACE Podcast, barely able to contain their excitement about the upcoming series of Doctor Who starring Matt Smith – and this was recorded before the tantalizing reviews of Episode One had been made available online. You should see how giddy they are now…

Anyway, enjoy the show!

The Pierhead Sessions took place in Cardiff from March 4-6, 2010. These sessions were set up to discuss various media issues and events that have affected Wales, and, naturally, the arrival of Doctor Who in Cardiff was one of the prime topics discussed. The Doctor Who panel on March 5 involved Clare Hudson (Head of Programming, English, BBC Cymru Wales), Piers Wenger (Head of Drama, BBC Cymru Wales, and Executive Producer, Doctor Who), Beth Willis (Executive Producer, Doctor Who), Ian Grutchfield (Brand Manager, Doctor Who), and was moderated by Neil Midgley (Daily Telegraph).

The hour long panel is presented in three parts below, and provides some interesting insights into the production of Doctor Who, including some fascinating hints and previews from the current production team of Piers Wenger and Beth Willis:
