Radio Free Skaro #670 – Curran Account


Download MP3

Have you ever wanted to see block transfer computation on the big screen? Your time has come as “Logopolis” hits theatres this March in the US and the BFI in February in advance of the release of the Doctor Who Season 18 box set! And as if that isn’t enough deep dive craziness, Big Finish is going to fill your summer with stories of the War Master and the Eighth Doctor politely nodding at each other and perhaps battling for the fate of the universe. Plus tales of tat, accolades and awards, and an interview from Chicago TARDIS with Vincent Van Gogh himself, actor Tony Curran!

The countdown is on with one week to a new Doctor and a new era, and the media frenzy continues unabated with Jodie Whittaker playing an entirely non-canon Theremin on the Graham Norton Show, talking on BBC Radio6, giving us the first(ish) glimpse at her Doctor with a 53 second clip, and frankly a staggering amount of news that can’t possibly be summed up with these pithy remarks. We also have a quick visit from Paul Cornell to discuss his last-ever Doctor Who week available now in a new Titan Comics Humble Bundle, and last week’s Series 11 panel from Edmonton Expo, with Earp Chirpers and Whovians Erika Ensign and Annette Wierstra, Variant Edmonton comic book purveyor (and Doctor Whoocher) Danica LeBlanc…and Steven.

Sad news this week as legendary production designer Michael Pickwoad passed away at age 73, leaving behind a legion of fans and a body of work that included iconic Doctor Who sets over 71 episodes but spanned a decades-long career in film and television. He will be missed. We also speculate about a likely Sunday start date in October for Series 11, we have news of a Doctor Who fan experience coming to Johannesburg, Matt Smith being cast in Star Wars: Episode IX, and most excitingly, part two of our Miniscope featuring 1970s writing duo Bob Baker and Dave Martin!

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!

Trailer! Teaser? Either way, a rather brief look at Series 11 of Doctor Who that shows the new friends Ryan, Yasmin, and Graham, a brief shot of Jodie Whittaker as Doctor Who #13, and several unhealthy food options was released to the world just before this podcast recording! Yes, the PR onslaught has begun, with Jodie on the cover of EW, dolly news, San Diego Comic-Con news, Amazon listings, and and AND a miniscope featuring Daniel Nettheim, director of “The Zygon Invasion” and “The Zygon Inversion”, “Extremis”, and “The Pyramid at the End of the World”!

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!

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!

The Series 11 news train continues unabated, with director announcements, pointless speculation on the amount of Doctor Who content headed our way from the BBC, Gallifrey One news, Time Lord science (which is elevated in Leicester), and a brief but lovely interview from Long Island Who with Dalek operator and Big Finish writer and director Barnaby Edwards!

And so the Peter Capaldi era ends, the Jodie Whittaker era begins, and the David Bradley era sneaks in through the side door for “Twice Upon A Time”, the 2017 Doctor Who Christmas Special. But what did the Three Who Rule think? Join them as they examine the final story of the Steven Moffat era, and the precious few seconds we have until Autumn 2018 of an entirely new Doctor! And, by popular (two people, let’s be honest) request, we also have a spoiler-filled discussion of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, squared away near the end for those of you who enjoy that sort of thing.
