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.

    A monumental episode as there are now more Radio Free Skaro episodes in the wild than there are Doctor Who episodes! And to celebrate this, Chip from Two-minute Time Lord joins us to give us a temperature check on the current state of Doctor Who. Also, we present the first half of our Miniscope on Doctor Who director James Hawes, who helmed “The Empty Child” and “The Doctor Dances”!

    After months of waiting, drumming our fingers, and alternating between hype and apathy, or hype-athy if you will, we finally have a title for Jodie Whittaker’s final story as the Thirteenth Doctor, and that title is…The Power of the Doctor. Not much to go on, but that won’t stop the Three Who Rule from mightily cogitating based on those five words, as well as talking about the new Flux soundtrack, Daleks in comic strip form, more Big Finish stuff, and as always, The Timelash!

    The Fallow Times of No Doctor Who and Even Less Information continues, but our friends across the pond at least had events with real live Doctor Who people to meet at FCC Birmingham and Whooverville 13, Abominable Snowmen BFI excitement, and most importantly, our thoughts on Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, and even more importantly still a pristine copy of William Shatner in his 1978 performance of Elton John’s “Rocket Man” in pristine 3/4-inch U-matic quality!

    Yes, the moment you’ve all waited for is happening, the official airdate for the as yet unnamed Doctor Who Centenary Special is….sometime in October. No, what we’re ACTUALLY excited about is the return of the Timelash, where we hash over decades-old minutiae to paper over the fact we have next to nothing for news to report. But we do have the conclusion of our gripping two-part commentary for “The Trial of a Time Lord”, Part Fourteen! Megabyte that modem with some carrot juice!

    What mysteries are in store for us with David Tennant’s already intriguing return in the year of 2023? A recent appearance by Ol’ Ten himself at a Boston convention hints at a lot while saying nothing, and a new trailer for the Doctor Who Season 2 – The Collection highlights the return of Vicki (aka Maureen O’Brien!) Plus there’s the usual tat and Big Finish missives and the start of our two-part Classic Series Commentary for “The Trial of a Time Lord”, Part the Thirteenth!

    It’s the sixteenth(!) anniversary of Radio Free Skaro and what better way to celebrate than with a trivia contest with questions ranging from gimme to nigh-impossible about Doctor Who featuring not only the Three Who Rule but also Erika Ensign and Kat Griffiths of Verity! Cheer, boo, cogitate alongside and stifle a swear or two as we’re all subjected to a barrage of factoids from Jacqueline Rayner’s “Doctor Who – The Official Quiz Book”, a fine tome written by a Who expert and not an intern at the Trivial Pursuit ofice!

    It’s been a week of HBO intrigues as the American home of Doctor Who (for now) goes through massive structural changes, ditches the $90 million Batgirl film for a tax writedown, and presumably turns everything it owns into a reality show. Here to explain the business machinations, or at least further muddy the waters, are the Three Who Rule. But there’s more in the form of a Chicago Fan Expo panel featuring our very own Steven, Erika Ensign of the Verity! Podcast, Nerdist senior editor and friend of the show Kyle Anderson, and academic and Who impresario Paul Booth!

    It’s the return of the Three Who Rule as Chris rejoins the august Radio Free Skaro crew from his recent sojourns in the United Kingdom and it’s a tragedy that it is in the sad circumstances of the passing of acting titans and Doctor Who stars Bernard Cribbins and David Warner this week. We pay tribute to these two gentlemen of stage and screen as well as looking at the latest Big Finish releases, and indeed a Humble Bundle that you will purchase!

Just as importantly, Heather is in San Diego giving us boots on the ground insights on goings on at San Diego Comic Con, as well as weighing in on such topics as Disney possibly distributing the RTD2 era of Doctor Who, Segun Akinola leaving the show, and a sad day for tat collectors as Eaglemoss goes out of business.

There’s also additional photographic evidence of Neil Patrick Harris being in Doctor Who to mull over, a call for Gallifrey One discussion panel topics and TARDIS Talks, our usual wallowing in the past with the Timelash, and part three of the gripping 1960s serial “The Space Museum” to outright ignore and blather over!

Everything old is new again as only a week after the introduction of Ncuti Gatwa as the new Doctor, the BBC and Russell T Davies have announced the return of David Tennant and Catherine Tate to the show in a series of specials that…could be pretty much anything, given Mr. Davies’ proclivity for mystery. What are the Three Who Rule’s take on this stunner of an update? You can probably guess from our previous rantings and/or praise, but tune in anyway! All of this is not to overshadow a corker of an interview with Who expert, actor, podcaster and Friend Of The Show Toby Hadoke, along with news of tat, annuals, Big Finish goings-on, and the Timelash! So please, if you will, Allons-y!

    Lo and behold, a new Doctor Who has appeared! Ncuti Gatwa is the new (but interestingly, not announced as the 14th) Doctor, as seen by an interview on the BAFTAs red carpet with Gatwa himself and one Russell T Davies. With months to go before Jodie Whittaker’s final foray as her incarnation of the Doctor and more waiting besides after that, let the baseless speculation commence! We also have news from Big Finish, Dominic Glynn’s historic Korg synthesizer can be YOURS (for a price), and the ever-present Timelash! But most importantly…GATWA!

    This week in the first (of two?) Radio Free Skaro episodes, it’s the final revenge of STATS! at least until the Autumn and the Three Who Rule examine how Legend of the Sea Devils did in a historical context, a gripping start to an episode featuring Big Finish news, the return of the Terry Nation Army, the ever-present Timelash and, as a special treat, an interview with author Richard Molesworth about his new book The John Nathan-Turner Doctor Who Production Diary 1979-1990!

    To the dread of Warren and delight of Steven and Chris, STATS return (and they are abysmal) for “Legend of the Sea Devils”, which spins off into a multi-faceted diatribe on the current state of streaming, including the abject failure of CNN+ and the rapid descent (more STATS) of Netflix’s subscriber base. But lest you think there’s no Doctor Who content we have news of Jo Martin and Sacha Dhawan joining the ranks of Big Finish, comics and Gallifrey One hotel booking info, and rounding it all out…The Timelash!

    It’s a live episode of Doctor Who and a livestream of Radio Free Skaro as the Three Who Rule don their flippers and talk in low whispers about “Legend of the Sea Devils”, a veritable gumbo of Thasmin, piracy and pieced together but somewhat enjoyable nonsense. But hey, how about that densely packed next time trailer that you’ll have to wait to see until October (maybe?). In the meantime, revel in our Timelash-ing, the Cushing films adding a couple K to their filmic resolution, a DWM action figure spectacularo and more! Li-s-s-s-s-t-e-n!

But that day will not only mark the return of our soggy beaked friends but also the debut of a new dramatic Doctor Who podcast called Doctor Who: Redacted, the return of the LAX Marriott HOTELPOCALYPSE on May 6, Peter Capaldi at 18 meeting Jon Pertwee, and the final episode of our Classic Series Commentary for “Planet of Evil”!

    Doctor Who fandom is aflutter this week with the release of a glorious new trailer announcing the casting of none other than Matt Berry as the new Doctor Who! Of course this was all a cunning April Fool’s jape by none other than Who animator Rob Ritchie, but if you enjoy profane nonsense we highly recommend it. The REAL trailer this week for “Legend of the Sea Devils” also charmed us with its soggy swashbuckling (of seatbelts), and of course we have the usual Big Finish blast of new announcements, Peter Davison convention shenanigans, and the third episode of our Classic Series Commentary for “Planet of Evil”! Enjoy, or be banished to a pit full of anti-matter!

But you, dear listener, need not ponder about the other news this week as we have not-quite-breaking missives about new “Legend of the Sea Devils” pictures, a trip through the Timelash, a surfeit of Big Finish releases yet to come, many of which are authored by Friend Of The Show and Verity! co-host Lizbeth Myles, and Part Two of our “Planet of Evil” Classic Series Commentary!
