Radio Free Skaro #731 – Game of Drones

Download MP3

It is the Time of Descent for the Three Who Rule as they have just returned from Gallifrey One and are still in the thrall of the post-con blues, but for the Cybermen (and indeed one television programme called Doctor Who) it is the Time To Ascend…to something or other, as determined next week. In the meantime, here’s a review of “Ascension of the Cybermen”, the first part of the two-part Series 12 finale! Also, we catch up on our Stats segment after skipping it last week, Torchwood returns to the iPlayer, Big Finish explores more nooks and crannies of the Whoniverse, and you can Build-A-Bear yourself a Doctor!

What a weekend! Not only did the Three Who Rule attend Gallifrey One and had a wonderful time (as you will hear in this podcast), but they had a new episode of Doctor Who to watch in the form of “The Haunting of Villa Diodati”, a scary haunted house story beautifully filmed and impeccably acted! Also, Steven recounts his experiences interviewing Christopher Eccleston on the main stage at Gallifrey One!

Immortal beings (who are expressly not the Eternals, Guardians, or Toymakers), evil, nightmares, mental health, and giant hands are just some (alright, most) of the topics tackled in this week’s Doctor Who episode, “Can You Hear Me?”, and the Three Who Rule have opinions and conjecture to bandy about for days in an episode that provoked a lot more discussion than we thought we would. And it’s our first episode of several this week as our Gallifrey One Preview Episode follows on Tuesday! It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Birds, globetrotting, and hapless travel vloggers are all part of the mix in “Praxeus,” the latest adventure in Series 12 of Doctor Who as the Doc & Co race against time, disease, environmental catastrophe, and general crankiness to save the world! What did the Three Who Rule think of this planetary runaround? You know the drill. And you also know this is the place for news of tat, Big Finish tat, even more tat, and s…tats. Ahhhhhh-aahhhhhh! Stats!

Two titans of early 20th century industry and invention square off in the fourth episode of Doctor Who Series 12, “Nikola Tesla’s Night of Terror” as the aforementioned Mr. Tesla and one Thomas Edison battle space scorpions, patent law and the Time Fam in New York City. But a far greater horror for Warren exists in the form of STATS! and we have so, so many of those cursed viewing figure numbers to discuss. Plus, we officially announce our upcoming Gallifrey One live show Radio Free Skaro: These Go To Eleven, featuring an impressive array of guests that will no doubt electrify you! Er, in a good way.
