Radio Free Skaro #661 – The Undeadly Assassins

11/11/2018
More
On the 100th anniversary of the Armistice being signed, it seemed fitting on the day of Remembrance that the tone of this week’s Doctor Who struck a more sombre tone, and that’s exactly what we got in “Demons of the Punjab”, written by Vinay Patel. The Three Who Rule give their thoughts on the episode, as well as all the news of the week that was, including an expanded stats section!

We’re at the halfway point of Doctor Who’s new Time Team’s first series, and “The Tsuranga Conundrum” is the final of the initial Chibnall quartet of stories. Confused yet? Well, luckily the above unpronounceable quandary is a straight ahead adventure that the Three Who Rule are here to decipher for you, along with a summary of all the news, previews, and yes….stats.

Radio Free Skaro #659 – The Web of Fear

10/29/2018

The Doctor and her fam…errr, TARDIS Team land back in Sheffield and smack dab into spiders, ethically dubious American businessmen and RTD-level family drama in “Arachnids in the UK”, the latest instalment of the eleventh series of Doctor Who. Will the quintessentially Whovian juxtaposition of the domestic with the deeply weird engage the Three Who Rule, or will arachnophobia turn to eight-legged tedium? You won’t know until you listen! Also, stats. Harrumph. Links: – Support Radio Free...

Radio Free Skaro #658 - The Spirit of Rosa

10/21/2018
More
For a show about time travel, Doctor Who doesn’t really go deep on matters historical, preferring a quick tour and a laugh to really getting into events as they unfold. But that changed this week with “Rosa,” a look at how civil rights hero Rosa Parks herself changed the world, and how the Doctor and the Time Team deal with both alien threats and a very different (but also somewhat familiar) world to 2018. What did Steven, Warren, and Chris think of the episode? And will a very special...

Radio Free Skaro #657 – Fish Fingers and Custard Creams

10/15/2018

It’s the second week of new Doctor Who and one Jodie Whittaker and her Time Friends are wandering an alien planet, fighting killer bedsheets and practicing Venusian aikido, and the news has not let up one jot. New TARDIS, new title sequence, new appearances, the Dreaded Stats return to menace Warren and delight Steven and Chris and a surfeit of tat, videos, Big Finish and more!

Radio Free Skaro #656 - No Sir, All Thirteen

10/7/2018

The long, long wait is finally over as Doctor Who returns to our screens all new but somehow every bit as Who-ish as ever. What did your esteemed hosts think of “The Woman Who Fell To Earth?”, not to mention Jodie Whittaker, said earth-falling woman and the new Doctor Who? Listen to both their thoughts and news of all the hype and glory leading up to Series 11 starting…now!

Radio Free Skaro #655 – Her Majesty

9/30/2018
More
The countdown is on with one week to a new Doctor and a new era, and the media frenzy continues unabated with Jodie Whittaker playing an entirely non-canon Theremin on the Graham Norton Show, talking on BBC Radio6, giving us the first(ish) glimpse at her Doctor with a 53 second clip, and frankly a staggering amount of news that can’t possibly be summed up with these pithy remarks. We also have a quick visit from Paul Cornell to discuss his last-ever Doctor Who week available now in a new...

Radio Free Skaro #654 – Doctor Who and the Doomsday Weapon

9/23/2018
More
With a mere two weeks to go before Series 11 of Doctor Who graces our screens, the news is arriving with increased ferocity, including a new trailer, articles in Doctor Who Magazine and the New York Times (!), cinema screenings, media appearances by one J. Whittaker, and more! But while you look forward to October 7, why not jump back through the decades to 1971 (and forward to Earth’s future) with our hair-obsessed commentary of episodes four to six of “Colony in Space!” Links: – Support...

Radio Free Skaro #653 – Dent Captain Dent

9/16/2018

Beginnings and endings this week as the build-up to Series 11 continues with the official premiere in Sheffield on September 24 – and you could be there! (But not to actually see the screening). And we tip our toque to the Doctor Who Information Network, Canada’s longest running Doctor Who fan organization, closing its doors at the end of October. But the main event is a trip back to 1971 and the planet Uxarieus as we commentate overtop of the first three episodes of “Colony In...

Radio Free Skaro #652 – The Glass Ceiling

It’s official! Doctor Who, starring one Jodie Whittaker as Dr. Who, will air on October 7 worldwide (well, the UK, USA, and Canada, so far, and October 8 in Australia), and we’re pleased as punch about it. To build up and celebrate the impending arrival of Thirteen, BBC America is doing a timey-wimey marathon, Australia is doing cinema screenings the next day, and Canada’s own Space is…showing the episode. Plus we have Edmonton Expo news, some gushing over the upcoming (circa 1981)...

Radio Free Skaro #651 – Shipshape and Bristol Fashion

9/2/2018
More
Sad news this week as legendary production designer Michael Pickwoad passed away at age 73, leaving behind a legion of fans and a body of work that included iconic Doctor Who sets over 71 episodes but spanned a decades-long career in film and television. He will be missed. We also speculate about a likely Sunday start date in October for Series 11, we have news of a Doctor Who fan experience coming to Johannesburg, Matt Smith being cast in Star Wars: Episode IX, and most excitingly, part two...

A rather staggering pile of Doctor Who news this week, including the announcement of all the new writers and directors for Series 11, a Bill action dolly becomes a little more real, Doctor #5’s first season gets the Blu-ray treatment, and more Doctor Who convention news than you can shake a stick at! And just for you, dear listeners, the first of a two-part Miniscope featuring the dynamic duo of writers Bob Baker and Dave Martin, AKA the Bristol Boys! A Miniscope? Now this is...

Radio Free Skaro #649 – The Power of The Power of Kroll

8/19/2018
More
Cast your minds back to the early days of Radio Free Skaro when there just hosts, Steven and Warren, and they would press record and then plan what they were going to talk about? Well, this episode is a throwback to those pre-smartphone days of the podcast, with Steven and Warren convening in a hotel room in San Jose, CA (home of WorldCon 76), along with guests Jason Snell, Helene Wecker, and Erika Ensign, to talk about how Doctor Who became a part of our lives, and where the show is going...

It’s a lazy August weekend as Radio Free Skaro approaches its twelfth(!) aniversary, but soon one Mr. David Tennant will grace the home planet of the Three Who Rule as he will be joining fellow Doctor Matt Smith at Edmonton Expo in September! Plus we have news of new E-Space adventures with the Season 18 time team (in Big Finish form), big-scale Thirteenth Doctor action dolly fun (in Big Chief form), and the main event, a Classic Series commentary for Peter Davison’s debut story,...

This week on Radio Free Skaro, we’re looking to the future as the first wave of Gallifrey One guests get announced for 2019, Series 11 of Doctor Who wraps up filming, a new Thirteenth Doctor publicity photo emerges, and many a soundtrack (well, two) for Classic Who drops from the sky into your ears. And if that isn’t enough sensory overload, we have an interview with notable game merchants Susan and Lee Cummings as they discuss their upcoming Steam and mobile game, Doctor Who...

Insanity levels are slightly lower in this, the week after San Diego Comic-Con, but there’s still plenty to discuss including Jodie Whittaker being a proper cinephile (at a now sold out appearance at Somerset House), a new book about the women of Doctor Who, upcoming Doctor Who merchandise discovered live on Amazon during the podcast, John Levene chronicling the saga of his life and times, Doctor Who: Infinity and Big Finish news, and the main event – the return of Fluid Links, where you ask...

It's San Diego Comic-Con! There is an absurd amount of news from the world's largest media convention this week, including a new and mysterious Doctor Who trailer, a panel featuring Jodie Whittaker, Mandop Gill, Tosin Cole, showrunner Chris Chibnall and executive producer Matt Strevens, new Series 11 artwork, Jodie wowing everyone with a surprise appearance at the Her Universe fashion show, a press conference or two and (takes breath) reports from on the ground at SDCC with the Nerdist’s...

Trailer! Teaser? Either way, a rather brief look at Series 11 of Doctor Who that shows the new friends Ryan, Yasmin, and Graham, a brief shot of Jodie Whittaker as Doctor Who #13, and several unhealthy food options was released to the world just before this podcast recording! Yes, the PR onslaught has begun, with Jodie on the cover of EW, dolly news, San Diego Comic-Con news, Amazon listings, and and AND a miniscope featuring Daniel Nettheim, director of “The Zygon Invasion” and “The Zygon...

Last week’s vast wasteland of not-news has been replaced by a verdant jungle of news-news, most notably the announcement of Segun Akinola as the new composer for Doctor Who! Plus Matt Smith comes to Edmonton, and comics and calendars that sort of feature Jodie Whittaker or flat-out don’t. There’s other news of course, but this is a mere tease to part one of our commentary for the Jon Pertwee story “The Green Death”, so dive back with us to June 1973 and hippies, environmentalism, and giant...
