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.

  • Radio Free Skaro #477 - Sarcopha-Gus

    If Radio Free Skaro was ever made into a lackluster dystopian future series of adventures for the tween set (which it won't, ever), it would have to be called "Digression," because that was the tenor of the first few minutes of this episode. Eurovision is rightly disparaged, Warren is baffled by football, and Steven vainly (sort of) tries to get things back on track by lovingly describing Peter Capaldi's swelling bouffant. Gross. But there's also a commentary for the Jamie Mathieson penned "Mummy on the Orient Express," featuring Reality Bomb's own Alex Kennard! You have 66 seconds to start listening!

    We promise, this is almost certainly the last time we jabber on about superhero movies...but that is in fact what happens at the start of this week's episode, until Chris lobs a well-deserved boot heel into the proceedings and gets the Other Two Who Rule back on track and talking about Doctor Who...in the form of comic books! Oh, sweet irony. Sweeter still are a couple of vintage interviews supplied by (and in one case featuring) composer Dominic Glynn and iconoclastic Doctor Who producer John Nathan Turner! Interspersed with those chats are some preview tracks from Glynn's new EP "The Ravolox Remixes", available on iTunes May 18!

    As Steven dips further into cricket insanity, a factor leading to his inevitable emigration to India could be the fact that Doctor Who will soon start broadcasting there for the first time. How can he possibly resist? Or perhaps a trip to New York to see the Symphonic Spectacular in October? One thing we can all agree on is that you should all journey between the pages of You and Who: Contact Has Been Made Volume Two, which contains writing from both Steven and Warren! And, and AND! As if the previous nonsense wasn't enough, we have not only an interview with "Kill the Moon" writer Peter Harness, but also a commentary for that self same episode, featuring Phil Cannon of the Who's He? Podcast! The mind boggles!

Yes, it's a bumper crop of guest stars, walk ons, and non-Canadian opinions as these two podcast titans bump the quality up a notch, or at least negate the enormous drag factor of faux-humble Canucks.

    In what may be a new record for top-of-the-show off-topic banter, much hashing out of the new Star Wars trailer (of course) occurred, along with Steven's descent into schedule and archived newspaper madness, wherein he charts out exactly when he (and by extension the other Two Who Rule) began watching Doctor Who on KSPS, the semi-local PBS station. Besides this lunacy, much discussion was had of a Series 8 soundtrack release (3 discs!), Dominic Glynn's excellent Ravalox Remixes of his original scores for 80s Who, Christopher Eccleston's recent comments on why he and Doctor Who parted ways, and much, much more! And! We also have Jono Park from the Zeus Pod podcast for a commentary on Time Heist! Can you stand the excitement?! Probably not, no.

And if the world's greatest convention isn't your thing, some sweet faux-Target novel covers of Series 8 stories might be to your liking. No? How about some superbly crafted pewter figures of Silurians? Old William Hartnell footage? Calgary Expo news? Not easy to please, are you? Fine, have an interview with Doctor Who composer Murray Gold, then, and hear him talk about creating music for Doctor Who in 2005 and in 2015, and also hear him reveal details about the upcoming Series 8 soundtrack. Ingrate.

    Ten years ago, a dream came true for many long-time fans of Doctor Who. A show long feared dead returned, stronger and better than ever....but in order for that to happen, many talented people had to come together in front of the camera and behind the scenes for a show no-one yet believed in. Director Joe Ahearne was one such individual, directing five Eccleston-era stories and witness to the chaos of that first season. He spoke to us about those days, his experiences working with Eccleston and RTD, and more! We also have snippets from press conferences held at the time, to give you more of a flavor of the atmosphere as the clock counted down to the return of Doctor Who. Happy anniversary, everyone!

Doctor Who wasn’t without loss this week with the passing of Barry Newbery, one of the program’s most prolific designers and the man behind the beloved (by Warren) secondary TARDIS control room. But it wasn’t all sadness…there’s also Daleks! Let’s all get real close to those pesky pepperpots, with the help of the RFS regulars and guest commentator David Hooie of the “Hoo on Who” podcast as they venture forth….Into the Dalek!

    With Gallifrey One looming ever closer, the Three Who Rule looked far and wide for news, and found very little, other than the discovery of a lost Desert Island Discs from 1965 starring none other than one William Hartnell, and of course the long-awaited release of Seasons of War, the unofficial War Doctor Anthology in support of the Cauldwell Chirldren’s charity helping UK kids with autism. But all this was mere preamble to Color Separation Overlay, a new pilot project from Lindsey Mayers, and featuring Dennis Slade, Izis Mollinedo and our own Steven to talk about race and representation in Doctor Who. Put on your thinking caps and enjoy!

    As the countdown to Gallifrey One ramps up, so too do new guest announcements, including Torchwood alumni Naoko Mori (Tosh) and McCoy era script editor Andrew Cartmel! In other news, riots and other carnage were avoided after Netflix renewed their rights to Doctor Who and a host of other BBC properties which were due to expire at the beginning of February. After the civil unrest and damage caused by the recent Oscar snub of the LEGO movie, we should all be relieved that everything worked out. But lo, there are also interviews from Chicago TARDIS in this episode of Radio Free Skaro, and they are thus: Mat Irvine, Doctor Who special effects whiz from the 1970s and 1980s, and a panel featuring Annette Badland of Aliens of London and Boom Town fame, Sonita Henry from The Time of the Doctor and Ellie and Joseph Darcey-Alden, the young wards of Victorian Clara Oswald in the Snowmen!

    Mind games, face huggers and tangerines...that's what passes for Christmastime when the Doctor gets involved. Sarcastic elves, a sassy Santa, and questionably CG reindeer round out Doctor Who's dip into surreality on this latest Xmas special, "Last Christmas", from the pen of Steven Moffat and directed by Paul Wilmshurst. So what did the Three Who Rule, brains slowed by turkey and Tofurky, think of P-Cap's first foray into Yuletide adventure? Down some egg nog, tear yourself away from erudite political discussion with the relatives, and have a listen!

    Happy Holidays to our beloved listeners across the world! And thank you to our supporters on Patreon who have pushed us over the $80/episode mark in our ongoing Patreon fundraising campaign. To celebrate both of these wonderful occasions, we look back in time to provide a commentary on another blessed event in the history of Doctor Who - the 1993 charity special "Doctor Who: Dimensions in Time"! Listen to the Three Who Rule regale you with insights and whimsy about this infamous "celebration" of Doctor Who's 30th anniversary, as well as reflect on how Doctor Who was looked upon at that time by the BBC and the general public and how Dimensions in Time might have represented the best possible celebration that could be mustered. And all of this is thanks to you, Patreon subscribers! Thanks. This is all down to you. Enjoy!
