• Radio Free Skaro #504 – A Bird In The Hand

    The penultimate episode of Series 9, "Heaven Sent" has arrived, and it’s a surreal, cerebral acting triumph for one Peter Capaldi, an expertly crafted bit of storytelling from showrunner Steven Moffat and director Rachel Talalay, and a dazzling artistic achievement from editor Will Oswald and musician Murray Gold. It’s also ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #503 – Let Me Be Brave

    THIS…IS…ENGLAND! At least it is for Steven, Warren, and Erika, who with the help of the lovely Simon Harries are currently wandering around Albion, fighting dinosaurs, ATMOS, Autons and jet lag as they drool like wide-eyed schoolchildren at famous sights and the drearily commonplace. But first, Chris joins Warren and ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #499 – Knightmare On Elm Street

    The Doctor reunites with Ashildr/Me…but is she a friend of an enemy? More to the point, was "The Woman Who Lived" better or worse than the episode that preceded it, “The Girl Who Died?” Also, is it possible to contain the sheer amount of squee generated when Sir John Hurt ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #498 – Suddenly Susan

    Fandom held its collective breath to witness the return of The Doctor's granddaughter Susan, in the form of Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams, and instead of that half-baked and silly theory they got a cracking good story about Vikings, immortality and clarity regarding the thorny Visage De Capaldi issue ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #497 – A Fifth Of Beethoven

    "Before the Flood" left Warren baffled and Steven and Chris intrigued, but what else did your three hosts think of the second episode of Toby Whitehouse’s brain-twisting two-parter?

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.
