Radio Free Skaro #579 – The Crooked Smile


Download MP3

A rare occurence on this week’s Radio Free Skaro in that two thirds of the regular Three Who Rule are absent. So we present to you Two other Rulers! Erika from Verity! and Kyle from Doctor Who: The Writer’s Room join Steven (Chris and Warren are off somewhere making tea) to review the second episode of this most recent series of Doctor Who. Will they be smiling or in their appreciation of it? Or will they merely be gritting their teeth and pretending as to not get murdered by cute robots? Isn’t that everyday anyway?

  1. iirc steven moffat himself calls them “big finish gaps.” also amy’s first few stories feed into each other not unlike bill’s do. clara’s obviously different because the whole point of her introduction is that the doctor has to chase her & she only adventures once a week, but there really aren’t any gaps in the beginning of amy’s story.

  2. The Science Museum is right next door to both the Natural History and Victoria & Albert Museums … so something for everyone in the vicinity. (V&A is art-type objects and fabrics.) My main memory of the Science Museum is that one can/could go right to the back of he building and get totally away from the sound of traffic noise … very relaxing if your whole life is dominated by road noise, and even better than the middle of the Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park which are also just down the road.

  3. So how DO you North Americans pronounce “algae” ?

    And yes I too am happy that Doctor Who maintains its Britishness, tho’ I was a little disappointed by “Santa Claus” appearing at the North Pole rather than Father Christmas. (But it’s a favourite episode so I’ll let that pass…)
