Radio Free Skaro #870 – Doctor Who Title Generator

Download MP3

After months of waiting, drumming our fingers, and alternating between hype and apathy, or hype-athy if you will, we finally have a title for Jodie Whittaker’s final story as the Thirteenth Doctor, and that title is…The Power of the Doctor. Not much to go on, but that won’t stop the Three Who Rule from mightily cogitating based on those five words, as well as talking about the new Flux soundtrack, Daleks in comic strip form, more Big Finish stuff, and as always, The Timelash!

The Fallow Times of No Doctor Who and Even Less Information continues, but our friends across the pond at least had events with real live Doctor Who people to meet at FCC Birmingham and Whooverville 13, Abominable Snowmen BFI excitement, and most importantly, our thoughts on Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, and even more importantly still a pristine copy of William Shatner in his 1978 performance of Elton John’s “Rocket Man” in pristine 3/4-inch U-matic quality! All of which is mere lead in to The Timelash, hashing out key (and not so key) dates in Doctor Who history so you don’t have to!

Yes, the moment you’ve all waited for is happening, the official airdate for the as yet unnamed Doctor Who Centenary Special is….sometime in October. No, what we’re ACTUALLY excited about is the return of the Timelash, where we hash over decades-old minutiae to paper over the fact we have next to nothing for news to report. But we do have the conclusion of our gripping two-part commentary for “The Trial of a Time Lord”, Part Fourteen! Megabyte that modem with some carrot juice!

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

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!
