rfs546This week, we begin the first of a two-part commentary for “The Two Doctors”, a Robert Holmes romp with Two, Six, hipster cannibals, tall Sontarans, and Elton John as a disco scientist. Enticing! But before the main event, the Three Who Rule reflect on the 50th anniversaries of both Star Trek and The Prisoner, two shows that along side Doctor Who were seminal viewing experiences for their younger selves. Dive into the past with us, won’t you?

rfs465It was a sad week for genre fans, with the passing of Star Trek legend Leonard Nimoy into the starry night, and though it isn’t strictly Doctor Who, it was the opinion of this week’s RFS crew of Warren, Steven and Chip (Chris is on an Away Team mission) that it behooved them to pay tribute to a man who for many acted as our gateway into fandom. Doctor Who wasn’t without loss this week with the passing of Barry Newbery, one of the program’s most prolific designers and the man behind the beloved (by Warren) secondary TARDIS control room. But it wasn’t all sadness…there’s also Daleks! Let’s all get real close to those pesky pepperpots, with the help of the RFS regulars and guest commentator David Hooie of the “Hoo on Who” podcast as they venture forth….Into the Dalek!

This week’s episode of Radio Free Skaro has unwittingly turned into a celebration of one-time Doctor Who producer Philip Hinchcliffe. Not only do the Three Who Rule provide commentary on the first Hinchcliffe story to air, 1975’s iconic The Ark in Space, but it was also announced this past week that Hinchcliffe will be appearing at his first ever Gallifrey One convention in February of next year. So sit back and listen as we celebrate one of the finest eras in Doctor Who history that made the show an international success story.

Also, listen as we make fun of actors’ hairstyles. Ah, it’s Radio Free Skaro. What do you expect?
