Radio Free Skaro #865 – Legacy Panel

Download MP3

It’s the sixteenth(!) anniversary of Radio Free Skaro and what better way to celebrate than with a trivia contest with questions ranging from gimme to nigh-impossible about Doctor Who featuring not only the Three Who Rule but also Erika Ensign and Kat Griffiths of Verity! Cheer, boo, cogitate alongside and stifle a swear or two as we’re all subjected to a barrage of factoids from Jacqueline Rayner’s “Doctor Who – The Official Quiz Book”, a fine tome written by a Who expert and not an intern at the Trivial Pursuit ofice! Plus the usual news and nonsense but mostly…trivia!

Radio Free Skaro #864 – Home of Genredoms

Download MP3

It’s been a week of HBO intrigues as the American home of Doctor Who (for now) goes through massive structural changes, ditches the $90 million Batgirl film for a tax writedown, and presumably turns everything it owns into a reality show. Here to explain the business machinations, or at least further muddy the waters, are the Three Who Rule. But there’s more in the form of a Chicago Fan Expo panel featuring our very own Steven, Erika Ensign of the Verity! Podcast, Nerdist senior editor and friend of the show Kyle Anderson, and academic and Who impresario Paul Booth!

It’s the return of the Three Who Rule as Chris rejoins the august Radio Free Skaro crew from his recent sojourns in the United Kingdom and it’s a tragedy that it is in the sad circumstances of the passing of acting titans and Doctor Who stars Bernard Cribbins and David Warner this week. We pay tribute to these two gentlemen of stage and screen as well as looking at the latest Big Finish releases, and indeed a Humble Bundle that you will purchase! We also have a Miniscope about Doctor Who composer Carey Blyton featuring musician and Youtube impresario Jess Jurkovic!

Two Who Rule (Steven and Warren) have returned from exile on Dulkis (vacation) this week and in lieu of Chris, who continues to explore the farthest corners of the United Kingdom, we have esteemed guest co-host Dr. Heather Berberet, psychologist and frequent guest host! Just as importantly, Heather is in San Diego giving us boots on the ground insights on goings on at San Diego Comic Con, as well as weighing in on such topics as Disney possibly distributing the RTD2 era of Doctor Who, Segun Akinola leaving the show, and a sad day for tat collectors as Eaglemoss goes out of business. But cheer up! Bonhomie, jocularity and optimism are our watchwords as we ascend to your podcast listening devices once more!

It’s Vacations Eve for Steven and Chris and besides that the news of the week is weirdly enough Ryan Gosling wearing a Ncuti Gatwa T-shirt but hey, we’ll take what we can get! And what we get is pretty much the Timelash, a ton of Big Finish including Chronovore Content (or Chron-Con as it is also known) from Friend of the Show Liz Myles, and the finale of our gripping Classic Series Commentary for Part Four of “The Space Museum”!

It’s the Time Before the Time of The RTD this week, as showrunner part deux Russels T Davies was a guest on the Triple C (Creative Confidence Collective) webinar and spoke of disability in the media, his writing process, creativity and the current state of the world, and we at RFS have listened and jotted down our meanderings. There’s also additional photographic evidence of Neil Patrick Harris being in Doctor Who to mull over, a call for Gallifrey One discussion panel topics and TARDIS Talks, our usual wallowing in the past with the Timelash, and part three of the gripping 1960s serial “The Space Museum” to outright ignore and blather over! Enjoy!

Plenty of news this week, including the arrival of one Neil Patrick Harris in some form or fashion for the 60th anniversary celebrations of one Doctor Who next year, playing…that would be telling. Also a ton of Target novelizations, audio dramas both Big Finish and otherwise and Cubicle7 tabletop role playing game fun is on the way AND we have an interview with Ella Watts, the director/producer of Doctor Who Redacted, the 10-part BBC Sounds podcast-o-rama featuring everyone’s favourite Time Lord and a crew of investigators out to crack the code of the Blue Box! VWORP!!

The fallow times continue with mere dribs (not even drabs available) of news this week other than one Big Finish adventure, Pluto TV arriving soon in the Great White North, and Steven appearing soon at a Doctor panel at Chicago Fan Expo, but somehow the Three Who Rule managed to get 50 minutes of joyful banter and abject nonsense out of their brains for you dear listener, all before continuing with our exciting and as-always totally on topic commentary for the hell-bent for leather adventure saga “The Space Museum”!
