Radio Free Skaro #548 – Absinthe and a Dead Bird


Download MP3

rfs548The Three Who Rule are at conterminous space coordinates this week, and despite the ever-present danger of the Blinovich Limitation Effect (not to mention cooties, con crud, and wayward glitter), they were able to record this episode “live” at Edmonton Expo! Besides controversy embroiling Class’s premiere next month in the UK and Canada and next year (!) in the USA, they were also able to tackle some of your Fluid Links, all while surrounded by cosplayers, fans, furries, and the ever present smell of onions.

Radio Free Skaro #533 – The First Second of Eternity


Download MP3

rfs533Let’s just take it as read that there was no news this week of any consequence and move right to the main event. Director Rachel Talalay joins Steven and Warren this week for a commentary on “Heaven Sent”, the penultimate episode of this series of Doctor Who and, let’s be honest, one of the best episodes of the show ever to be produced, old or new. And next week she’s back with Hell Bent with Steven and Chris! But why are you reading this? Listen and enjoy!

rfs509Stats! A nightmare scenario for Warren, and a garden of numbered delights for Steven and Chris, but either way paltry material for the post-series 9, pre-Gally news list. However, this week we have an interview with Petronella Osgood herself, Ingrid Oliver, recorded recently at Chicago TARDIS! Straighten your question mark collars, sit up straight, and enjoy!

rfs503And so we come to the end of Clara Oswald, one of the most consequential companions in the history of Doctor Who and the focus of “Face The Raven,” the third to last story in Series 9. What did the Three Who Rule think of Clara’s departure, writer Sarah Dollard’s debut, and the return of Rigsy? And, as the Three catch up on various news items of the past couple weeks, what of stats, comics, DVDs and other frip-frap? Next week, Steven calls in from Chicago TARDIS and we look at “Heaven Sent,” the Capaldi one-hander leading into the Series 9 finale. Woot!

rfs456To the excitement of all and sundry, or at least the 3,500 people attending Gallifrey One in under a month’s time, it was recently announced that John Barrowman, Captain Jack Harkness himself, will be gracing the LAX Marriott for his first ever appearance at North America’s leading Doctor Who convention. The news of Barrowman’s visit to the City of Angels churned the Three Who Rule to a totally hetero, manly and strapping lather and only the titanic dullness of of statistics could cool them down. But hark! There was yet more excitement, as Camille Coduri’s interview with Steven onstage at Chicago TARDIS features in this week’s episode! Anecdotes, tales and japery await!

Radio Free Skaro #452 – Click here to listen!

rfs452It’s beginning to feel a lot like Last Christmas, which is dominating both our thoughts and the promotional efforts of the BBC Publicity department. Maybe that’s why most of our news is focused on that upcoming holiday where they show a new Doctor Who story and some other, largely irrelevant events rides its coattails. Plus there’s news of a Doctor Who theme park, which is greeted by the confusion and derision only three middle aged nerds with no concept of what the kids today are into could muster. All that questionable content, and an interview from Chicago TARDIS with the voice of the Daleks, Cybermen and countless other creatures, Nick Briggs, who is also one of the main creative forces behind Big Finish! What are you waiting for?

rfs451With the Three Who Rule firmly back in place and order restored to the galaxy, there was great rejoicing and much waffling about next to nothing, not to mention the controversial and wrong headed use of the terms “P-Cap”, “J-Co,” and “S-Claw.” in reference to the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas Special “Last Christmas”. But wait! The main feature is an interview with Mickey Smith himself, Noel Clarke, by our very own Steven recorded live on stage at Chicago TARDIS. And and and….nerd rage from Warren about the highly important matter of the 3.75 inch dolly. Blasphemy!

rfs447And with that, Series 8 of Doctor Who is over! After a radical turn towards darkness and drama it all came together with “Death in Heaven,” the final episode of the series and the P-Capstone on the 12th Doctor’s inaugural year. From the machinations of Missy (AKA The Master) to the glorious fake-out of Jenna Coleman as the Doctor in the opening titles all the way to…well, there’s some Cyber-shenanigans which the Three Who Rule cover in great detail. And as a bonus, we have an Long Island Who report from The Memory Cheats and Doctor Who: Mostly Harmless Cutaway co-host (and all around fine gent) Josh Zimon!

rfs438Robin Hood! Robots! Shenanigans! Etc! Things took a turn for the romp-y in “Robot of Sherwood,” the latest episode of Doctor Who, but what did the usually taciturn and P-Cap-ian Three Who Rule think? Eh? Listen as the three acerbic grouchwads expound upon the story in question and also reflect on stats and what a blight they are on human society. But that’s not all, not by a long chalk! We also have an interview with director Douglas MacKinnon, whose handiwork will be seen later this series in “Time Heist”, “Flatline” and, next week, in “Listen”! So…do so!
