Radio Free Skaro #858 – Freedom of Choice

Download MP3

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!

Radio Free Skaro #857 – The Blue Box Files

Download MP3

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”!

Radio Free Skaro #855 – Anarchy in the UK

Have you ever wanted to manage the Doctor Who brand? Yes, the dream of many a British schoolchild can be yours if you have extensive experience in said management of brands and Doctor Who and probably a bunch of other stuff dummies like the Three Who Rule don’t understand. And that’s the news as new Doctor Who continues to be made, away from prying eyes! But we also have perennial fan favorite (is it though?) the Timelash, and Part One of our Classic Series Commentary about anything but “The Space Museum”!

The casting announcements will continue because morale improves! Official news from Auntie Beeb about Yasmin Finney joining the cast as Rose (but not THAT Rose, despite what Variety may say) as well as one Rachel Talalay AKA SuperWhoDirector back on the show! Plus the usual audio, Terry Nation Army and Timelash shenanigans and a feature interview with Matthew Jacobs and Vanessa Yuille, the co-directors and co-producers of fandom-focused documentary Doctor Who Am I!

Radio Free Skaro #852 – Happy Times and Places

Download MP3

BREAKING NEWS KLAXON! Everything old is new again as only a week after the introduction of Ncuti Gatwa as the new Doctor, the BBC and Russell T Davies have announced the return of David Tennant and Catherine Tate to the show in a series of specials that…could be pretty much anything, given Mr. Davies’ proclivity for mystery. What are the Three Who Rule’s take on this stunner of an update? You can probably guess from our previous rantings and/or praise, but tune in anyway! All of this is not to overshadow a corker of an interview with Who expert, actor, podcaster and Friend Of The Show Toby Hadoke, along with news of tat, annuals, Big Finish goings-on, and the Timelash! So please, if you will, Allons-y!

Radio Free Skaro #851 – Ncuti Gatwa is The Doctor

Download MP3

Lo and behold, a new Doctor Who has appeared! Ncuti Gatwa is the new (but interestingly, not announced as the 14th) Doctor, as seen by an interview on the BAFTAs red carpet with Gatwa himself and one Russell T Davies. With months to go before Jodie Whittaker’s final foray as her incarnation of the Doctor and more waiting besides after that, let the baseless speculation commence! We also have news from Big Finish, Dominic Glynn’s historic Korg synthesizer can be YOURS (for a price), and the ever-present Timelash! But most importantly…GATWA!

Radio Free Skaro #850 – The Memory Cheats

This week in the first (of two?) Radio Free Skaro episodes, it’s the final revenge of STATS! at least until the Autumn and the Three Who Rule examine how Legend of the Sea Devils did in a historical context, a gripping start to an episode featuring Big Finish news, the return of the Terry Nation Army, the ever-present Timelash and, as a special treat, an interview with author Richard Molesworth about his new book The John Nathan-Turner Doctor Who Production Diary 1979-1990!

Radio Free Skaro #849 – Running Out the Clock in Florida

Download MP3

To the dread of Warren and delight of Steven and Chris, STATS return (and they are abysmal) for “Legend of the Sea Devils”, which spins off into a multi-faceted diatribe on the current state of streaming, including the abject failure of CNN+ and the rapid descent (more STATS) of Netflix’s subscriber base. But lest you think there’s no Doctor Who content we have news of Jo Martin and Sacha Dhawan joining the ranks of Big Finish, comics and Gallifrey One hotel booking info, and rounding it all out…The Timelash!
