Radio Free Skaro #587 – Death By Scotland


Download MP3

Gloom, doom, and light-eating tentacle dogs are the topic du jour for the Three Who Rule, as they viewed the Rona Munro penned, Charles Palmer helmed “The Eaters of Light” and formed cogent, well reasoned analyses of the third to last episode of Series 10, and didn’t at all speculate wildly about Mondasian Cybermen, bearded former Masters, Missy’s weird turn towards mercy and more. And speaking of Masters, Big Finish just announced that Derek Jacobi will return to his “Utopia” role as the Doctor’s best enemy with a new series of “War Master” audios, which recent BF convert Warren is feverishly anticipating! Plus Moffatt and Chibnall interviews, side glances at Funk Pops, and…yes, stats. Now go eat a fried Mars Bar and stand around on a dark Scottish moor contemplating the futility of existence! Go on!

Radio Free Skaro #584 – Pyramid Power


Download MP3

We’ve reached the middle portion of the Trilogy of the Monks with “The Pyramid at the End of the World”, and who better to lend a hand ruminating on tractor beams, world peace, pandemics and panic than Wife in Space impresario Neil Perryman? Neil joins the Two Who Rule (in the form of Warren and Steven) to hash out what in the actual hell is going on with these mysterious robed fellows, before getting to the most important news of the week…Doctor Who branded skin care products. Stats, speculation, and the great nation of China single-handedly resurrecting Classic Who (in our minds) and more!
