|The Three Who Rule welcome back our very good friend Chip from the Two-minute Time Lord podcast as we all talk over Neil Gaiman’s most recent Doctor Who effort, Nightmare in Silver. Has some time and distance since the story’s initial broadcast allowed our hearts to warm to it more, or was the extremely divisive reaction from fandom warranted and still valid? Will the effort satisfy 80s Hair Band pedants? News of the week, with Chip filling in for a very busy Warren, and which includes talk of what might just be the worst merchandise tie-in ever, rounds out this episode of Radio Free Skaro. Excelsior!|

No Celestial Toymaker reference? The chess game reminded me of the Trilogic Game that the Doctor was playing; but that might be due to the fact that I reviewed that story within a couple months of Nightmare In Silver, so maybe it was just fresh in the mind.
