Radio Free Skaro #565 – Warning: Graphic Content


Download MP3

Dollies, Nardole and a reliably batty, 83 years young Tom Baker are the mere froth on the fancy latte of Whographica, an exquisite collection of infographics featuring incredibly nerdy deep dives into the corners and recesses of Doctor Who trivia. We interviewed authors Simon Guerrier, Steve O’Brien and Ben Morris, to find out what went into this expansive and frankly obsessive labour of love. Adjust your rectangular framed glasses, straighten your turtleneck, and enjoy! And listen in to see how you can win a copy of Whographica (courtesy BBC Books) of your very own!

rfs531It’s the return of the Miniscope! The segment wherein the Three Who Rule discuss the contributions of notable creator folk throughout the history of Doctor Who, and to welcome back this popular segment, we talk about showrunner-designate Chris Chibnall’s prior writing efforts in Doctor Who. Also, our friend Chip from the Two-Minute Time Lord drops by for the news, which is filled with talk about issue 500 of the venerable Doctor Who Magazine, including an excellent interview with current showrunner Steven Moffat. Next week: the return of Fluid Links!

Day Two of Gally! And what a day of behind the scenes luminaries it was, with Doctor Who director Richard Senior (“Let’s Kill Hitler”), writer Simon Guerrier and the inestimable Steve Roberts of the Doctor Who Restoration Team rounding out the behind the scenes chatter. Plus the delightful mendicants from the Pharos Project stopped by to drink, swear and occasionally form a sentence. Drunktastic!

Gallifrey One Guest Update – October 14, 2011

Gallifrey One has announced another guest update for the 2012 edition of the popular Doctor Who convention, featuring first-time guest W. Morgan Sheppard, and writer Simon Guerrier!

Sheppard played the older version of Canton Everett Delaware III in this past series of Doctor Who and joins his son, Mark, as a guest for the upcoming convention. Guerrier is known for his work with his brother Thomas on the Classic Doctor Who DVD range along with writing novels, Big Finish audio plays and more.

Also announced today are actress Chase Masterson who made an appearance at the previous Gallifrey One, director James Kerwin, illustrator Blair Shedd, animator Aimee Major Steinberger, and NASA scientist Dr Kevin Grazier.

Unfortunately the announcement today also revealed previously-announced guest Frazer Hines would be unable to attend.

Gallifrey One is North America’s largest Doctor Who convention and Network 23, running February 17-19, 2012, will be dedicated to the memory of Elisabeth Sladen and Nicholas Courtney.

The Guerriers are responsible for some recent and upcoming bonus material on Classic Doctor Who DVD releases and we talk with the brothers about some of them, especially their award-nominated Race Against Time coming out very soon on the DVD of The Mutants.

Radio Free Skaro Invades Gallifrey 21

The countdown is on to Gallifrey 21, the world’s foremost Doctor Who convention, which gets underway on February 26 in Los Angeles, California. The Three Who Rule will be there for the second straight year, having enjoyed themselves immensely when they attended Gallifrey 20 in February 2009. If you, dear readers and listeners, are headed there this year, too, you will have the time of your lives. If you can’t make it to LA, then Radio Free Skaro has you covered, as there will be daily RFS podcasts from Gallifrey from Wednesday, February 24 to Sunday, February 28.

Each episode will be packed with interviews with actors, writers, and directors from Doctor Who, as well as the typical japery and nonsense that usually accompanies Radio Free Skaro podcasts. So keep checking the feeds and iTunes starting on February 24 as Radio Free Skaro brings the Gallifrey experience to you!

Until then, why not dip back into last year’s coverage and enjoy interviews we did with Rob Shearman, Toby Hadoke, and many others?
