Radio Free Skaro #808 – Rhythm Composer

Download MP3

It’s San Diego Comic-Con at Home time again, which means all of two panels concerning Doctor Who, one about the quite delightful Missy Comic from write Jody Houser and artist Roberta Ingranata and the other featuring Jodie Whittaker, Mandip Gill, John Bishop and Chris Chibnall! The panel revealed about as much as you’d guess, as did a teaser trailer. In fact the only real information was new cast member Jacob Anderson recently of the Game of Thrones parish is in Series 13. We also discuss the Guardian clickbait article currently making the rounds, dollies, Big Finish, games and, to Warren’s dread, a history of viewing figures! Listen if you dare!

Radio Free Skaro #807 – Letts Make Magic

Download MP3

In about a week we’ll either learn absolutely nothing or possibly slightly more than that as Doctor Who holds a panel at SDCC@Home featuring Jodie Whittaker, Chris Chibnall, Mandip Gill, new companion John Bishop and a “special guest” (possibly the ghost of Richard Hurndall?) and RFS will be there, at home, in a slightly delayed fashion to cover it. But here in the present there’s audiobooks, a new version of the Doctor Who Role Playing Game, and more catching our attention, along with the final part of our Barry Letts directorial Miniscope, covering “Carnival of Monsters”, “Planet of the Spiders”, and “The Android Invasion”! What are you waiting for, Lett’s CSGo!

It’s the return of the Miniscope! Barry Letts has both written and directed for Doctor Who (on top of his tenure as producer from 1970-74) but he finally has his day in our segment analyzing the work of behind-the-scenes notables here for his directing on “The Enemy of the World” and “Terror of the Autons”. We also talk about the upcoming Comic-Con at Home Doctor Who panel on July 25, a bevy of Big Finish releases, and look back at some notable, non-broadcast related dates in history in The Timelash!

It’s another exciting week in Doctor Who-age as the latest non-event in the “who is the next Doctor Who” saga reaches its inevitable limp conclusion, but to bring balance to the Force, “The Evil of the Daleks” is coming to DVD and Blu-ray in animated form! Plus Big Finish is bringing back not only the Doctor’s daughter, Jenny, for a second series, but also Sir Derek Jacobi for some audio chinwaggin’ about his legendary career, and of course we delve into Doctor Who history once again as we enter the…Timelash!

It’s the end, but the moment has been prepared for, as we wrap up our Torchwood Revisited commentary series with “End of Days” from Torchwood Series 1. But the news and banter that you know and love comes first with guest Heather Berberet subbing for Warren while he communes with nature to talk about rumours of Jodie Whittaker leaving Doctor Who in 2022, the return of conventions in the coming months, and what went on in this week in Doctor Who history in The Timelash!

Various parts of the world seem to be opening up, emerging from our long pandemic slumber, and the World of Who is no different, with Long Island Who and Chicago TARDIS selling passes to their November conventions, the BFI holding Doctor Who screening events, and BBC America canvassing questions from the Who-polloi to ask the cast of Series 13, currently nearing the end of production. Also, we have possibly the best episode of Torchwood Series One as we join the timey-wimey, Cardiffy-Wardiffy adventures of “Captain Jack Harkness” in our Torchwood Revisited commentaries!
