  • Radio Free Skaro #416 – Random Access Memories

    Sadly, a trio of recent deaths in the Doctor Who world lead off this week's episode, as we remember the contributions of writer/actor Glyn Jones, director Derek Martinus, and the Rani herself, Kate O'Mara. But with new Doctor Who still months away, trickles of information are beginning to emerge as ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #415 – More Of A Table Wine

    It’s the return of the Miniscope! The focus this time is on Michael Hayes, the accomplished director who at first blush wanted nothing to do with Doctor Who but learned to love the show after directing "The Androids of Tara", "The Armageddon Factor" and the rightly beloved "City of Death". ...

    The Three Who Rule are travelling back in time this week to the wild, wooly days of 2005, when a certain program about a madman in a box first re-graced our screens after a long, long hiatus. Though we take the success of Doctor Who as a matter of course ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #411 – Kicking the Styres

    The classic commentary returns to Radio Free Skaro, in the form of a brief but enticing little number known as "The Sontaran Experiment"!

  • Radio Free Skaro #410 – Love From Gallifrey, Boys

The Three Who Rule lads get the privilege of being able to announce another guest for our live show, Radio Free Skaro and the World of Tomorrow and rehash Toby Whithouse’s The God Complex, a mindbleep episode that split opinions when it went out. Join us for the ride!

With Steven special corresponding from Chicago TARDIS, and with The Doctor Who Book Club’s Erik joining the Three Who Rule to offer his trenchant insights on fannish Who goings-on, this episode is chock full of things in the American Mid-West that involve a Doctor Who convention. Such things include an interview with Peter Davison, an RFS first, even if he’s Doctor the Fifth. Of course it wouldn’t be an episode of Radio Free Skaro without the usual news, sardonic analysis and nerdery. Enjoy!

Well, it had to come to this eventually – a slow news week and a duff episode of Doctor Who to be commented on both occurring on the same episode of Radio Free Skaro. With little in the way of actual news to discuss, the Three Who Rule instead bandied about their mostly positive experiences while playing the new Doctor Who Adventure game, The Gunpowder Plot. And with equally little in the way of actual good Doctor Who, the Three meandered into discussions about Justin Bieber and the films of director Peter Weir. You have been warned.

The time has finally arrived for The Three Who Rule to cast their eyes back on Series 6 of Doctor Who via their annual commentary series. Things kick off with, of course, The Impossible Astronaut, as the lads talk over what they felt to be one of the best opening episodes for any series of NuWho… and as ever, rarely staying on topic. But for every beginning there’s an ending as the last ever episodes of The Sarah Jane Adventures graced the small screen this past week, and things just won’t be the same without Lis Sladen. The news of the week rounds out the show with a look at DVDs, books, and the latest from the rumour mill.

Silence! (Silents?) Timey-wimey! River Song getting hitched! “The Wedding of River Song” had it all, including a moving tribute to the Brig. But did the various parts mesh together into a satisfying whole, or did the Three Who Rule think otherwise? The sudden demise of Doctor Who Confidential was also hashed over in great detail, with some division on the reasons and consequences of losing a window into the behind the scenes goings-on of our favorite television program. Stats, toys, t-shirts, expensive scale models of Matt Smith….and baseless Cybermat Roomba speculation round out this, the last Radio Free Skaro dealing with new Who until December 25th.

A minotaur, a question of fear and faith, and a turning point for the Doctor and his companions…not to mention a surreal hotel from Hell! The God Complex went under the RFS microscope this week, with a smattering of opinion both favourable and somewhat less so. Add a giant brick wall o’ stats, a Sarah Jane launch date, some new guests for Gallifrey 2012, and an interview with “The Girl Who Waited” scribe Tom MacRae, and you’ve got yourself an audio file of approximately an hour in length!

The Girl Who Waited was, to varying degrees, praised by the Three Who Rule as one of the best episodes (if not THE best, according to Warren) of this season, with acclaim for the direction, the visuals, the timey-wimey-ness, and most of all for Karen Gillan’s double performance as herself and…herself.

But wait! Torchwood: Miracle Day also wrapped up its 10 episode run with rockginas, immortals, f-bombs, and Oswald Danes doing what he does best: making the blood of civilized folk curdle.

Add a dollop of stats, DVD news and Matt Smith being a stylin’ mofo, and you’ve got yourself, well, a podcast!

Next week…..Night Terrors! Or, more accurately, The God Complex!
