Radio Free Skaro
Description:
Radio Free Skaro is possibly the most popular, most prolific and charmingly irreverent (but never irrelevant) Doctor Who podcast around. Since August 2006, hosts Warren (in Vancouver, BC) and Steven (in Edmonton, AB) have provided listeners with their brand of amusing Doctor Who praise and punishment. A year later, Chris (in Amherst, NS) was added to the team, and The Three Who Rule were born. Recommended by Doctor Who Magazine, Radio Free Skaro provides an entertaining and diverting listen for the diehard or casual Doctor Who fan. New episodes usually appear on Sundays, following a loose magazine format of the three hosts discussing the news and events of the past week in the worlds of Doctor Who, Torchwood, and the Sarah Jane Adventures. They have also recorded special commentary podcasts for classic series and new series episodes of Doctor Who along with interviews of some of the brightest of the Doctor Who luminaries. Radio Free Skaro is also the official podcast of Gallifrey One, the world's largest and longest-running annual Doctor Who convention.

    No sooner did we joke about Mondasian Cybermen in Series 10 than they magically appear in a publicity shot with one Peter Capaldi! While we'd like to claim prophetic wisdom in this matter, we had no inside knowledge and this was likely a "going out in style" wish from one Mr. Capaldi, and we are all the better for it. P-Cap will also be gracing the small, inconsequential town of Calgary, AB for Calgary Expo at the end of April, to the delight of bouffant enthusiasts across the Canadian prairies! And in other good news, we have two interviews to round out our Gallifrey coverage, one with the voice of the Daleks, Cybermen (plus many others) and Big Finish man about town Nicholas Briggs, and the other with writer, director, actor and Dalek operator Nicholas Pegg! Do we have the right? Of course we do!

    Capaldexit!

    Warren is in Long Island, NY this week, enjoying the fourth iteration of the east coast nerd gathering known as LI Who, and has a report from the trenches for you dear listeners. Thanks to schedules, wifi, and probably rock monsters, Warren couldn't watch Class in time for the show, but Steven and Chris are on the case to give you their take on Episode 5 of the Doctor Who spinoff. However, Warren is present for the commentary for the sentimental favourite (but not altogether good) Season 15 story "The Invisible Enemy", recorded in the blissful, innocent time of October 2016. Remember that time? Remember...?

Yes, two episodes of the newest spin-off of Doctor Who have landed (in the UK and Canada) and the Three Who Rule have their thoughts to share with you...unless you wish not to hear them, being in the United States! We've conveniently put bridging music before and after our review, and put the time of said review in the show notes, for you, our American listeners (who don't download tv shows like fiendish criminal vandals). Besides that, we also have action dolly news, confirmation of Missy in Series 10 of Doctor Who, a discussion by three middle-aged nerds about the viewing habits of millennials, and more!

Dribbles of info about Class (which premieres October 22 in various parts of the Commonwealth)...and not much else. But wait! Chris travels from the past to the present to comment on the past (confused? We are) as RFS is plagued by "The Curse...of Fenric"!
