Radio Free Skaro #659 – The Web of Fear


Download MP3

The Doctor and her fam…errr, TARDIS Team land back in Sheffield and smack dab into spiders, ethically dubious American businessmen and RTD-level family drama in “Arachnids in the UK”, the latest instalment of the eleventh series of Doctor Who. Will the quintessentially Whovian juxtaposition of the domestic with the deeply weird engage the Three Who Rule, or will arachnophobia turn to eight-legged tedium? You won’t know until you listen! Also, stats. Harrumph.

This week on Radio Free Skaro, we’re looking to the future as the first wave of Gallifrey One guests get announced for 2019, Series 11 of Doctor Who wraps up filming, a new Thirteenth Doctor publicity photo emerges, and many a soundtrack (well, two) for Classic Who drops from the sky into your ears. And if that isn’t enough sensory overload, we have an interview with notable game merchants Susan and Lee Cummings as they discuss their upcoming Steam and mobile game, Doctor Who Infinity!

Yes, enjoy the Three Who Rule’s shaky insights as we field questions from you, the listeners!

Radio Free Skaro #628 – Hulke Smash!

A cranky Chris (Eccleston), a snippet of Steven (Moffat) and a serendipitous Series 11 opening sequence concept are all in the news this week, but let’s be honest, you’re here for the trenchant insights of one Kyle Anderson of Doctor Who: The Writer’s Room podcast and Nerdist fame (and, we suppose, the Three Who Rule’s meagre offerings) as we delve into the second of our three-part Malcolm Hulke Miniscope with a look at “Colony in Space”, “The Sea Devils”, “Frontier in Space”, and “Invasion of the Dinosaurs”!

The Three Who Rule return for another episode from Gallifrey One in Los Angeles, where they’ve been blown away by the top-notch insights and hilarity of the guests in attendance, from outgoing showrunner Steven Moffat’s take no prisoners Q&As to Camille Coduri’s hilarious response to “what’s your favorite sonic screwdriver?” But there’s still comic book news, effects updates and the debut of Britbox Canada to consider, along with an interview with series producer Brian Minchin! Allons and indeed…y!

Radio Free Skaro #620 – Doctor, I Let You Go


Download MP3

With months to go before new episodes and a new Doctor, fans and indeed the media are grabbing at any vague crumb they can find, as evidenced by the Radio Times online arm clickbaiting their way into several stories telling us…precisely nothing. But ex-Who poobah Steven Moffat also spoke recently about what he would have done had David Tennant stayed on as the Doctor (spoilers: more or less series 6) and Titan’s Doctor Who line is coming back this summer for Free Comic Book Day, and will in some way introduce their take on Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor! But the main event is the second half of our look at Steven Moffat’s time showrunning Doctor Who, as Heather Berberet, Kyle Anderson and Paul Booth return to look at the Peter Capaldi era!
