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.

    On the 100th anniversary of the Armistice being signed, it seemed fitting on the day of Remembrance that the tone of this week's Doctor Who struck a more sombre tone, and that's exactly what we got in "Demons of the Punjab", written by Vinay Patel. The Three Who Rule give their thoughts on the episode, as well as all the news of the week that was, including an expanded stats section!

    For a show about time travel, Doctor Who doesn't really go deep on matters historical, preferring a quick tour and a laugh to really getting into events as they unfold. But that changed this week with "Rosa," a look at how civil rights hero Rosa Parks herself changed the world, and how the Doctor and the Time Team deal with both alien threats and a very different (but also somewhat familiar) world to 2018. What did Steven, Warren, and Chris think of the episode? And will a very special addition to the stats report cause Warren to finally lose what's left of his mind?

    The topic of Doctor Who missing episodes has been dormant relatively recently, but a tangent in an interview with producer/director Paul Vanezis, who has aided in the recovery of other previously missing Doctor Who episodes, may raise the profile once again. (Listen to the interview with Steven starting at 30:36; JR Southall joins Steven later to discuss what Paul said). Elsewhere, Doctor Who on Twitch has been an unprecedented success, launching new memes and generating fresh enthusiasm amongst a whole new generation of Doctor Who fans!
