This week, the major Doctor Who-related news is the very thorough article in The Guardian about the allegations of sexual assault and abuse against former Doctor Who actor Noel Clarke as described by a group of 20 brave women. We also have news of Doctor Who Magazine, Big Finish, and the increasingly intriguing, immersive theatre experience Doctor Who: Time Fracture, along with our continuing Torchwood Revisited commentary series featuring the rural mayhem that is “Countrycide!”

There comes a time in the life of every podcast when they must do something they do not wish to do, but that they know they have to do and that time is now for Radio Free Skaro with the Torchwood Revisisted commentary for “Cyberwoman”, a baffling hodge-podge of robotics and puerile nonsense. Or are we overreacting? But before we subject you to this televisual atrocity, there’s Big Finish news, Hugo Awards finalist updates, and more!

As the global pandemic abates (everywhere but Canada, currently in the throes of The Swarm 3.0) Doctor Who news is…somewhat sedate. But we do have news of a Canadian release date for the Season 24 Blu-ray, Dalek auctions, a Devil’s End comic book Kickstarter, and copious praise for the student-produced Mission to the Unknown from 2019! And as if that wasn’t enough to overload your sensorium, our Torchwood Revisited commentaries continue with “Ghost Machine”!

It’s a tsunami of audio drama as Big Finish throws many a soundscape at us, including some Tom Baker adventuring written by friend of the show Liz Myles (due out in 2022)! Plus a Ninth Doctor audio trailer for you Ecclestonians! Also Terrance Dicks is declared essential reading via the medium of books, UK Doctor Who: The Collection Blu-rays adopt standard packaging (whoo!). But we’re just avoiding the inevitable here, the start of our Torchwood Revisited commentaries, starting with Series One, Episode One: “Everything Changes”! It is the 21st century, after all.

Spring has sprung (or, for those in the Antipodes, fall has fallen), and there is a renewed sense of optimism in the world in general, and the Doctor Who world specifically. Why? Because Jodie Whittaker and Mandip Gill bring the Thasmin energy to a new Red Nose Day cameo, The Lonely Assassins is thrilling mobile game players the world over, and the Doctor Who: The Collection series of blu-rays are returning to store shelves. To that end, we talk to Mark Ayres about the Season 8 set (out now in the UK) and the Season 24 set to come!

It’s a grab bag of broadcast and streaming and televisual chicanery this week as the Three Who Rule ruminate about the imminent debut of BBC First, a new channel in Canada from BBC Studios, the return of BBC Three in the UK, the Shame of CTV Sci-Fi and more, before handing over these musings to much smarter people, namely former Doctor Who magazine editor Tom Spilsbury and chair and associate professor of film and media arts professor at Southern Methodist University Derek Kompare as they examine where media is going and how Doctor Who plays into this chaotic new world. Please stand by!
