It’s been a very quiet week for Doctor Who news, but that won’t stop us from waffling on about KSPS Doctor Who broadcast schedules of yesteryear, Babylon 5 HD-ish upgrades, and other such ephemera! Mere distraction though for the third and final part of our Miniscope on Doctor Who director Rachel Talalay, where we look at “World Enough and Time”, “The Doctor Falls”, and “Twice Upon a Time”!

Radio Free Skaro – Archive Interview With Rachel Talalay (2017)

Download MP3

For the next three weeks, we are presenting some archive content in the leadup to our three-part Miniscope on the works of director Rachel Talalay.

Rachel has been a friend to us here at RFS, appearing no fewer than six times, and we thought it was worth re-releasing our interviews and commentaries with her over the years as a lead-in to our conversations about her work on Doctor Who.

Here is our final interview with Rachel Talalay (so far) on the podcast. This one was released across two episodes of Radio Free Skaro, 608 and 609, in the runup to the 2017 Christmas special “Twice Upon a Time”, where Warren visits the home of Rachel Talalay again to talk about that, as well as the two-part finale to Series 10.

Join us on January 31 for the third and final part of our Miniscope on director Rachel Talalay, where we look at “World Enough and Time”, “The Doctor Falls”, and “Twice Upon a Time”.

Throw in some dribs and drabs of audioboks and other ephemera but enough stalling, it’s time to tear off the bandage and suffer with us for the second half of our Classic Series Commentary of “The Creature from the Pit”!
