  • Radio Free Skaro #465 – The Needs of the Many

    It was a sad week for genre fans, with the passing of Star Trek legend Leonard Nimoy into the starry night, and though it isn’t strictly Doctor Who, it was the opinion of this week’s RFS crew of Warren, Steven and Chip (Chris is on an Away Team mission) that ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #464 – Musique Concrud

    Fighting off con crud, sleeplessness and the ever-present post Gallifrey One blues, the Three Who Rule were joined by fourth Beatle Chip of Two Minute Time Lord fame for the news, and by author and televisual scholar John Williams for a commentary of "Deep Breath", the first of our Series ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #459 – Colour Separation Overlay

    With Gallifrey One looming ever closer, the Three Who Rule looked far and wide for news, and found very little, other than the discovery of a lost Desert Island Discs from 1965 starring none other than one William Hartnell, and of course the long-awaited release of Seasons of War, the ...

Radio Free Skaro #299 – Click here to listen!

Gally is over for another year. While the Three Who Rule briefly reminisce about the glory that was Gallifrey One’s Network 23 in this episode of Radio Free Skaro, it’s back to normal for podcaster and listener alike for the next few months – at least until next year’s The 24 Hours of Gallifrey One, or y’know, until the new series of Doctor Who starts in the autumn. To help us get back into the swing of things, we present to you a commentary on the 2011 Doctor Who Christmas special, The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe, as well as a smattering of news and views of what was missed while we were all living it up at Gally.

Sigh…we miss Gally.

Silence! (Silents?) Timey-wimey! River Song getting hitched! “The Wedding of River Song” had it all, including a moving tribute to the Brig. But did the various parts mesh together into a satisfying whole, or did the Three Who Rule think otherwise? The sudden demise of Doctor Who Confidential was also hashed over in great detail, with some division on the reasons and consequences of losing a window into the behind the scenes goings-on of our favorite television program. Stats, toys, t-shirts, expensive scale models of Matt Smith….and baseless Cybermat Roomba speculation round out this, the last Radio Free Skaro dealing with new Who until December 25th.

Doctor Who is back! After what seemed equally both a long summer and a short summer, Doctor Who has returned to our screens with Let’s Kill Hitler — and of course the Three Who Rule were all over the episode to deliver their review. But wait, there’s more! Torchwood is still making its way toward the end of Miracle Day, so of course the lads throw in their two cents about End of the Road. What do they think about these new offerings from the Whoniverse? Lastly, along with the usual news and stats, we also speak with Doctor Who Brand Manager Edward Russell about his upcoming Walk for Lis!

It was quite a week in the many worlds of Doctor Who, headlined by a phenomenal Torchwood episode, the press screening for the return of Doctor Who in Let’s Kill Hitler, and a monumental Hugo Award win for the editors and publishers of one of our favourite books, Chicks Dig Time Lords. And on top of all that, it is precisely six months until Gallifrey One’s Network 23, so we have a feature chat with Gallifrey One Program Director Shaun Lyon. Full speed ahead!

Can summer be winding down already? It seems so, and along with Torchwood: Miracle Day hitting the halfway mark in its run with another bang up episode (according to the Three Who Rule, who seem to be one of the few Who podcasts out there who are actually enjoying the series), the Summer Classic Commentary Series begins to wind down, as well. This week, Radio Free Skaro’s take on Episodes 1-4 of the 1968-69 epic The Invasion, which may or may not feature the Cybermen. Oh, and the return of new Doctor Who is now less than three weeks away…

Two years since Torchwood was last seen on the TV and computer screens in the brilliant “Children of Earth”, the series returned this past weekend on Starz and SPACE (and, soon, BBC One) with the first installment of the ten-part epic “Miracle Day”. And what an assured debut it was, too, with plenty of action and intrigue to go around with some whimsical japes thrown in for good measure. In addition to this, we have the first of our Summer Classic Commentary series (an event so noteworthy that we’ve chosen to capitalize the name) as we watch and talk over the first three parts of the 1972 serial “The Sea Devils”. Radio Free Skaro: as much fun as one could have in a string vest.

The Almost People, part 2 of Doctor Who’s sentient play-doh saga initiated last week with The Rebel Flesh, proved to be only quasi-compelling to the RFS lads. Indifference shifted to both gasps of astonishment and grumblings of unhappiness at the “game-changing” cliffhanger to this week’s festivities…and we still have A Good Man Goes to War to look forward to next week (or the week after that, SPACE and BBC America viewers.) In the meantime, stats were examined, asteroid-eating goats invented, and Journey’s End was maligned with a naughty word. Just another normal day here at Radio Free Skaro.
