Radio Free Skaro #564 – At Long Last, Wendy Padbury


Download MP3

For seemingly every single Doctor Who convention that one or all of the Three Who Rule have ever attended, Wendy Padbury has been there. Standing next to them in lines, walking past them in the hallway, but never, ever a guest on Radio Free Skaro. Until today! Ms. Padbury joins a panel of fine thespians (and Doctor Who companions) Anneke Wills, Deborah Watling, Louise Jameson, and Lisa Greenwood (and all interviewed by our very own Steven) recorded at Chicago TARDIS from this past November!

rfs556The Daleks return to North America this week from the dustbins of history and into your iTunes/BBC America/other in the form of “The Power of the Daleks” in its reanimated glory. And the Three Who Rule are on the case, in the form of interviews with both soundsmith extraordinaire Mark Ayres and Whostorian Toby Hadoke about the making of the animated episodes, as well as the upcoming DVD extras! We also have our usual review of Class, a look at new footgage from “The Return of Doctor Mysterio” and Children In Need, a bloggy Easter Egg from Jamie Mathieson, and more!

rfs545A chance meeting with a newly married couple blessed by one Mr. Peter Capaldi, dribs and drabs of Class news, and….a Miniscope! Musical scientist Mark Ayres is the subject of keen-eyed observations from the Three Who Rule, only one of which (Steven) have any real musical expertise but the bulk of the Miniscope is an interview with said Mr. Ayres, a scholar and gentleman tunesmith of the highest renown. Open your ears and enjoy!

Radio Free Skaro #530 – Birdemic: Shock and Terror

rfs530Comics, commentaries, audio adventures (both new and rumoured) and a celebration of Doctor Who’s many female scientists make for a busier newslist than usual in this, The Year With No Doctor Who, and this week you even get bonus tut-tutting about Target book arrangements and criminal dips to black on CraveTV’s streaming editions of the programme. A summons to the high court of the League of Fandom is in the maoi and should be arriving at their offices soon, fear not. And if that made-up legal nonsense doesn’t engage you, how about a commentary for “Face the Raven” with Deb Stanish of Verity! fame and Alyssa of Whovian Feminism?

rfs503And so we come to the end of Clara Oswald, one of the most consequential companions in the history of Doctor Who and the focus of “Face The Raven,” the third to last story in Series 9. What did the Three Who Rule think of Clara’s departure, writer Sarah Dollard’s debut, and the return of Rigsy? And, as the Three catch up on various news items of the past couple weeks, what of stats, comics, DVDs and other frip-frap? Next week, Steven calls in from Chicago TARDIS and we look at “Heaven Sent,” the Capaldi one-hander leading into the Series 9 finale. Woot!

rfs483With San Diego Comic-Con mere days away, the mystery, hinting, and oblique teasing is reaching a fever pitch, with not only the main players on Doctor Who’s creative team storming Hall H on Thursday, July 9, but also a Titan Comics panel to whet your fannish interest, along with toys, exclusives and all manner of madness for the Three Who Rule to weigh in on. Next week we’ll have friend of the show and rakish flaneur Kyle Anderson calling in from SDCC to give us all the news on Series 9 and the all important State of Capaldi’s Bouffant, but for now, enjoy an interview with comedian, Doctor Who enthusiast and fine fellow Toby Hadoke about his new BBC radio play, “The Dad Who Fell To Earth”!

rfs455Fancy a return to Alzarius? We did, so we contacted classic Doctor Who and Big Finish writer Andrew Smith about “Mistfall,” his upcoming Big Finish audio play which sends the Fifth Doctor, Turlough, Nyssa and Tegan back to E-Space. Andrew also joins us to look at the news of the week, including stats, plush Tennants, and a possible controversy concerning Netflix! Toby Hadoke also makes a special appearance to reflect with Steven on the life and times of Bernard Kay, the accomplished actor who appeared in The Daleks, the Crusade, The Faceless Ones and Colony in Space, and who sadly passed away this week. Enjoy, and look forward to next week, where we continue our Chicago TARDIS interviews with the fantastic Camille Coduri!

Radio Free Skaro #454 – Click here to listen!

rfs454Mind games, face huggers and tangerines…that’s what passes for Christmastime when the Doctor gets involved. Sarcastic elves, a sassy Santa, and questionably CG reindeer round out Doctor Who’s dip into surreality on this latest Xmas special, “Last Christmas”, from the pen of Steven Moffat and directed by Paul Wilmshurst. So what did the Three Who Rule, brains slowed by turkey and Tofurky, think of P-Cap’s first foray into Yuletide adventure? Down some egg nog, tear yourself away from erudite political discussion with the relatives, and have a listen!
