With Steven quite literally in a Cabin In The Woods, cut off from much of humanity and completely ignorant of “Dinosaurs on a Spaceship,” it was up to Warren, Chris and special guest star Chip, the Two-Minute Time Lord, to hash out their feelings about thunder lizards, Egyptian queens and guest stars from the Potterverse. But it wasn’t all sunshine and rainbows and puppy dogs and fluffy clouds and unicorns and… wait, where were we again? Oh yeah, Warren was forced to confront that which he hated most, the dreaded stats, and we throw in some discussion about the Welsh BAFTAS, games, Cafe Press and the Hugo Awards and more. Put it all together and you’ve got yourself an audio program on the internet about a niche topic!

Radio Free Skaro #312 – Eurosvision

Radio Free Skaro #312 – Click here to listen!

With the furore and fascination of Eurovision now over with (oh, the excitement! The whimsy!), the Three Who Rule turn their gaze towards one of the most prolific directors in the new series, Euros Lyn, in this week’s Miniscope. Lyn was credited with directing an astonishing eleven episodes across nine stories, including some stunning work on Tooth and Claw, and some questionable decisions on the David Tennant/RTD finale The End of Time. Also discussed in this week’s podcast is Radio Free Skaro’s upcoming appearance at Westercon 66 in July 2013, and some exciting news on the DVD front in the months to come. All in all, this week’s episode is worth more Euros than money can buy!

Radio Free Skaro #305 – Richard Clark’s New New York’s Rockin’ Eve

Radio Free Skaro #305 – Click here to listen!

On the same weekend that The Doctor’s Wife, along with The Girl Who Waited and A Good Man Goes To War, was nominated for a Hugo Award, it was fitting that we discuss the assorted works of that episode’s director, Richard Clark, in the Miniscope. The Three Who Rule also give a good going over to the other three episodes that Clark helmed, namely Gridlock, The Lazarus Experiment, and Night Terrors, all the while comparing Clark to such diverse geniuses as Stanley Kubrick and George Martin. Also, a slow news week does at least contain some juicy tidbits about Series 7, which is currently going before the cameras in Cardiff. And just you wait to find out who we randomly draw for the next Miniscope…

Radio Free Skaro #280 – The Devil In The Dark

Radio Free Skaro #280 – Click here to listen!

The dark cloud from last week’s pirate adventure has lifted and The Three Who Rule are able to take solace in blathering over one of the best-received episodes of Doctor Who from this past series. The Doctor’s Wife gets the commentary treatment, and – short story even shorter – it’s just as well-loved this time around as when we first saw it half a year ago. Also, as we start to gear our brains toward conventions such as Chicago TARDIS and Gallifrey One, we sink our teeth into some details about the recently-announced official convention. Does it sound worthwhile?

Fear Her is a story not well beloved by most Who fans (one RFS host being the notable exception), but Life on Mars is near universally praised. Since both were written by Matthew Graham, the writer of this week’s “The Rebel Flesh,” the Three Who Rule didn’t know what to expect as they sat down to view this latest adventure of the Doctor and his companions. What did the Three Who Rule think of Graham’s apology for Fear Her? You’ll just have to listen to find out!

In one of most keenly anticipated Doctor Who episodes in some time, legendary fantasy writer Neil Gaiman finally got the keys to the TARDIS and presented us with a gloriously affectionate love letter to Doctor Who, the series that he has adored since before time itself. The Doctor’s Wife was one of the more unique stories ever presented, yet its heart (or hearts) was in the right place. What did The Three Who Rule think, you may well ask? Listen in to find out…

It’s a pirate party, and yarrr all invited as The Three Who Rule take a look at the latest Doctor Who offering, The Curse of the Black Spot. The boys hash through the highs, lows and plethora of middles of this eye of the storm between the Series 6 two-part opener and Neil Gaiman’s sure-to-be-awesome-but-dark episode 4, always keeping the goals of stats and public safety in sight.

The opening two-parter of Series 6 has now concluded, but what did The Three Who Rule think of Day of the Moon? Did it hold up after the corker we had in the shape of episode 1? Did it answer the questions we had? Did it ask more questions? Most importantly, what were the viewing figures like, and at what point would they drive Warren to commit unspeakable acts? One thing is for sure – this series of Doctor Who is shaping up to be like no other that came before it.
