  • Radio Free Skaro #416 – Random Access Memories

    Sadly, a trio of recent deaths in the Doctor Who world lead off this week's episode, as we remember the contributions of writer/actor Glyn Jones, director Derek Martinus, and the Rani herself, Kate O'Mara.

  • Radio Free Skaro #415 – More Of A Table Wine

    It’s the return of the Miniscope! The focus this time is on Michael Hayes, the accomplished director who at first blush wanted nothing to do with Doctor Who but learned to love the show after directing "The Androids of Tara", "The Armageddon Factor" and the rightly beloved "City of Death". ...

  • Radio Free Skaro #411 – Kicking the Styres

    The classic commentary returns to Radio Free Skaro, in the form of a brief but enticing little number known as "The Sontaran Experiment"!

  • Radio Free Skaro #410 – Love From Gallifrey, Boys

    With Gallifrey One 2014 behind them, the Three Who Rule rallied their weakened, battle-scarred livers and turned their attention to Matt Smith’s last hurrah, "The Time of the Doctor".

Radio Free Skaro #325 – Click here to listen!

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!

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.

Radio Free Skaro #321 – Click here to listen!

Whenever anything from the Sylvester McCoy era is the focus of an episode of Radio Free Skaro, there is bound to be disagreement. Chris and Steven are usually staunch defenders of the Seventh Doctor; Warren, to be polite, not so much. But the stories that director Alan Wareing claimed stewardship of, “The Greatest Show in the Galaxy”, “Ghost Light”, and “Survival” cause all three of those who Rule to convey pretty firm opinions about not only the direction of said stories, but the overall successes and faults of each one. But before Wareing’s judgement in the Miniscope, we remember the eloquent and beautiful Mary Tamm who sadly passed away this past week, as well as speculate on what’s to come in Doctor Who and when we will see it. Have a listen!
Show Notes:

- Mary Tamm…Died.
- Multiple 50th Anniversary…Specials?
- BBC America…Schedule!
- New Series 7 Trailer…Coming Soon!
- Doctor Who…Covers Entertainment Weekly!
- Doctor Who…Cut From The Olympics!
- BBC…VFX Book!

After a couple of quiet weeks on the news front, we were treated to a bumper crop of topics worthy of discussion on this episode of Radio Free Skaro. Not only were we introduced to the next companion in the form of Jenna-Louise Coleman, but the official Doctor Who Convention in Cardiff gave us a new trailer for Series 7 and so much more, as told to us by our new friend Phil Cannon from the Who’s He Podcast who attended the convention and had a grand time. And as if that wasn’t enough, we present an interview with Graeme Burk and Robert Smith? about their new book Who Is The Doctor?, and top off the episode with a look at the works of Terrance Dicks in the Miniscope. The excitement for Series 7 is building. We hope we help you pass the time until then in an entertaining fashion!
