rfs432With San Diego Comic Con’s annual media megashow winding down, Radio Free Skaro brought in a Special Report from Nerdist editor and all around fine fellow Kyle Anderson as our man on the scene to let us know about the Big! Who! News! almost live from the source. Well, it turns out there hasn’t been very much news to speak of Who-wise, with the BBC likely focusing their energies on launching their world tour, and….showing us a new 15 second trailer. And……showing the premiere in cinemas worldwide! Holy cats! Despite the dearth of SDCC news, rest assured our list is chockablock full of items of interest, and as if that weren’t enough, we also have the last Fluid Links for quite some time! Madness!

Radio Free Skaro #428 – Click here to listen!

rfs428The Series 8 news is slowly building as we hurtle towards August 23rd, the just-announced debut date for Peter Capaldi (aka P-Cap), the 12th (13th?) Doctor in a feature-length adventure called “Deep Breath”. But mixed with excitement is disappointment for some fans, as there will be no San Diego Comic Con panel this year…which makes sense given Doctor Who is to be gallivanting around the globe shortly on a world tour of seven different cities on five continents. But all this is mere preparation for the return of Fluid Links, where we answer your questions about Doctor Who, nonsense, and Doctor Who nonsense! Which questions did we pick? Listen and find out!

rfs392It was truly a momentous week for Doctor Who fans everywhere as they got not one, nor two, but THREE different trailers for ‘The Day of the Doctor’ from the BBC (twice!), BBC America, and, inadvertently early, BBC Latin America. While everyone is busy frame advancing through those to find out clues about the 50th Anniversary Special, a metric ton of news also dropped this week which helped push this episode of Radio Free Skaro past the two hour mark. But how could you go wrong with a Philip Segal Miniscope in the form of a TV Movie commentary with guest Neil Perryman? Answer: you can’t. Enjoy, and be content that we are now less than two weeks away from the anniversary weekend…

The BBC has rolled out a new trailer that’s sort of a tribute to the classic series and kind of a teaser for the Day of the Doctor. There’s no doubt, however, that it’s a whole lot of cool. Behold!

We’re officially into the home stretch toward the return of Doctor Who. After leaving the launch date until late in the game, as the BBC likes to do, it was formalized this past week that Asylum of the Daleks will grace our screens on September 1 (unless you live in Australia). Jubilation and excitement abound, despite the short run of Series 7A, and The Three Who Rule look forward to sinking their teeth into Moffat’s first proper Dalek story… next week. In the mean time, we still have the rest of our Invasion of Time commentary to deliver, as well as the rest of the past week’s news, which for a change is sorta Arthur Darvill-centric. Sit tight as we deliver a Rory-ing good time!
Show Notes:

Asylum of the Daleks…September 1 on BBC One!
Asylum of the Daleks…September 1 on SPACE!
Asylum of the Daleks…September 1 on BBC America!
Asylum of the Daleks…September 8 on ABC1!

A bumper length episode of Radio Free Skaro awaits you this week! The lengthy news list contains a discussion on the new trailer for Series 7 that came out this past week, as well as speculation on what big name actor will be announced as a guest star! (Of course, by the time you all hear this, this information will be already out there, and we’ll look like right idiots. Again.) After we cover some DVD news, we move on to our commentary for Tom Baker’s penultimate story The Keeper of Traken, possibly Doctor Who’s most valid stab at stagey Shakespeare productions that happen to take place on different planets. But on the bright side – less than a month until new Doctor Who!
Show Notes:

Big name guest actor…to be announced!
