Radio Free Skaro #361 – The Borings of Akhaten

Radio Free Skaro #361 – Click here to listen!

After a rollicking opening to Series 7B last week, we were treated to a new episode in “The Rings of Akhaten” that received almost no love from any of the Three Who Rule. In fact, only one person had something nice to say about it, and you’ll never guess who! The episode may have left a bad taste in everyone’s mouth, but the return of a full stats report, and a return of our new, impromptu game called “Guess the Stats!”, proved to be a splash of minty, mouthwashy goodness! That, and talk of the 50th Anniversary special, Christopher Eccleston, DVD news, and an endless list of Doctor Who t-shirt ideas, makes clear that it’s not where you start, but where you finish. Next week: Ice Warriorssss…
