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.

But more importantly, Friend of the Show, all around fine gent and writer of some renown Phil Ford returns to talk about “Into the Dalek,” his contribution to Series 8 due to grace our screens in just a couple of weeks, but also about the Deep Breath premiere in Cardiff and just how wonderful Peter Capaldi really is, both on and off camera. And if you’ve ever wanted to know what ringtones the Three Who Rule have on our phones, well….you’re welcome.

    With San Diego Comic Con looming, roving Radio Free Skaro reporter Warren Frey took it upon himself to interview Andrew James, the editor of the new Doctor Who range at Titan Comics. James spilled the beans on SDCC plans, a Doctor Who Day promotion across the U.S. and the U.K. and much more, but first…a massive (one could even say Titan-ic) amount of news. From the leak of Deep Breath (or a somewhat unfinished version of it, anyway) to action dolly news, Big Finish updates and more, the Three Who Rule were overwhelmed by an avalanche of information. And all this without an official Doctor Who panel at Comic Con! Madness. Pure madness.

    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 20 minutes and 52 seconds

    Direct Podcast Download

    It was a week of great tumult in the world of Doctor Who, with the leaking of the first five scripts for Series 8 taking the internet by storm and sending Whovians into spasms of joy, guilt, fear and loathing. Though the scripts have presumably spread far and wide, Who-dom has heeded the call of #keepmespoilerfree and as of release of this episode, no major spoilage is happening in the more reputable corners of the internet. 

     

    While lest you think #8gate was the only thing happening in Who this week, rest assured there was movement in the realms of comics, Classic Who (with Retro TV bringing back our old friend on August 4th, starting with “An Unearthly Child”) and shoddily made, possibly foreign but certainly amusing “versions” of Doctor Who from Japan and….well, wherever the hell Beedeer is from. 

     

    All this, and an interview with 80’s music maestro Roger Limb in the Miniscope! Listen! WE COMMAND IT!

Once all the new shiny is talked about, though, the Three Who Rule dip back in time to commentate over the third part of the Key to Time season, 1978's "The Stones of Blood"! Ogri, sausage sandwiches, well tamed crows, location videotape, Megara - all sorts of things to enjoy!

    The Series 8 news is slowly building as we hurtle towards August 23rd, the just-announced debut date for Peter Capaldi (aka P-Cap), the 12th (13th?) Doctor in a feature-length adventure called "Deep Breath". But mixed with excitement is disappointment for some fans, as there will be no San Diego Comic Con panel this year...which makes sense given Doctor Who is to be gallivanting around the globe shortly on a world tour of seven different cities on five continents. But all this is mere preparation for the return of Fluid Links, where we answer your questions about Doctor Who, nonsense, and Doctor Who nonsense! Which questions did we pick? Listen and find out!

Much fun was had as news of comics, schedules, and action dollies (oh so many dollies) was discussed with great gusto. And as a bonus, we also have an interview with Stephen Gallagher, writer of 1980s Doctor Who stories "Warriors' Gate" and "Terminus"! Ever had questions about time-jumping lions? You bet you do, and they’re about to get answered!

    Fancy a Doctor Who historical? Even those that don't exist anymore (for now)? The Three Who Rule certainly did, and so writer John Lucarotti, the scribe behind “Marco Polo,” “The Aztecs,” and “The Massacre (of St. Bartholomew’s Eve)" was the focus of this week’s Miniscope. Warren decided to go down a more textual path, and read the Target novelization of Marco Polo, while Steven and Chris braved the wild world of fan recons. How does Mr. Lucarotti fare under the glare of 2014’s wildly different pacing and tastes? Only one way to find out! But before that, our old friend Chip from Two-Minute Time Lord drops by to visit and talk about the news of the week, such as it is. Enjoy!

    Doctor Who is coming back in August, and the internet has the brief, presumably-Capaldi-silhouette-filled trailer to prove it! But the RFS lads were equally enamoured with a recently released fan trailer of P-Cap and J-Co traipsing around in the rain, made by none other than the mysterious John Smith, who not only created the stellar Wholock trailer that consumed the internet, but also appears in Warren’s own Skaromantic Comedy as the random victim of a comely Dalek lass!

     

    But enough quasi-self-promotion, today’s Miniscope guest is none other than Michael E. Briant, director of "Colony in Space", "The Sea Devils", "The Green Death", "Death to the Daleks", "Revenge of the Cybermen", and "The Robots of Death"! Though we included our cogent analysis on said stories, we also went straight to the man himself, with an in-depth interview with Steven about his time on the show, the freedom afforded a television director in the 1970s, and even Briant’s new life as a full-fledged sailor. Avast, ye dogs!

Fairlith discuss not only burlesque but feminism, nerd culture, and the influence of cosplay on burlesque and vice versa. Enjoy!

  • Radio Free Skaro #420 - The Fact of Fiction

    4 May 2014 (6:00pm GMT)
    Episode Duration: 1 hour, 6 minutes and 25 seconds

    Will someone just rename this the "Pointless Speculation about Star Wars Episode VII Podcast" already? After listening to the opening of this week's Radio Free Skaro, they might! The Three Who Rule did eventually bring the latest Doctor Who news to the table, along with an interview with writer, script editor and classic series producer Derrick Sherwin, but (mostly due to Warren, as usual) there were many digressions, including unrestrained bile for new Terminator films, studious avoidance of discussion of a certain naughty parody film, and the aforementioned Sturm Und Drang about a certain movie with laser swords coming Xmas 2015. Next week, the return of Fluid Links! Submit your ideas on Twitter using hashtag #FluidLinks and we may just draw it for discussion!

    What derails the Three Who Rule from the week's news and a gripping Miniscope about classic series director Rodney Bennett? Why, it's the #firsttargetnovel Twitter discussion from Full Circle scribe and all-around gentleman Andrew Smith! Your hosts thoroughly enjoyed drenching themselves in novelised nostalgia, and loon forward to further trips to the fannish past. Eventually, the fellas settle down and talk about the work of Mr. Bennett, who helmed three stories in the Tom Baker era - "The Ark in Space", "The Sontaran Experiment", and "The Masque of Mandragora". But what of the future? What wondrous commentaries and other aural delights are in store for you, dear listener? WHAT!?

    Sadly, a trio of recent deaths in the Doctor Who world lead off this week's episode, as we remember the contributions of writer/actor Glyn Jones, director Derek Martinus, and the Rani herself, Kate O'Mara. But with new Doctor Who still months away, trickles of information are beginning to emerge as to the shape of Series Eight, including returning writers (Gareth Roberts), new actors (Tom Riley) and...well, that's about it. It's only April! One thing you won't have to wait for is the return of Fluid Links, where the Three Who Rule once again take your questions about the show and use their tiny mind-computers to formulate opinions. Next week, it's another classic series commentary with "The Curse of Peladon"! Whee!

    It's the return of the Miniscope! The focus this time is on Michael Hayes, the accomplished director who at first blush wanted nothing to do with Doctor Who but learned to love the show after directing "The Androids of Tara", "The Armageddon Factor" and the rightly beloved "City of Death". What did the Three Who Rule think? Turn on your audio-visualizer and find out! But before that, news of Mark Gatiss writing more episodes of Doctor Who, and can it really be nine years since Doctor Who returned to our screens? Amazing!

Good thing too, because the news is pretty thin on the ground this week. But there is talk of intriguing Season 8 guest star Keeley Hawes,  Olaf Pooley (Professor Stahlman in "Inferno") turning 100, and whimsical speculation about Fonzie LEGO minifigs jumping over LEGO sharks.

    The Three Who Rule are travelling back in time this week to the wild, wooly days of 2005, when a certain program about a madman in a box first re-graced our screens after a long, long hiatus. Though we take the success of Doctor Who as a matter of course these days,  in those early stories the show could have easily failed, and the fact that it didn’t is in no small part due to the work of one Joe Ahearne, gentleman director and subject of the Miniscope. Join Steven, Warren and Chris as they dissect the work of one of the most important directors of new Who…and also waste your time beforehand with news, japes and the introduction of P-Cap and J-Co to the “irritating shortened names for actors” pantheon.

    The classic commentary returns to Radio Free Skaro, in the form of a brief but enticing little number known as "The Sontaran Experiment"! Despite its quick running time, the adventures of Styre and Friends packs in adventure, spills, stunts, Terry Walsh in an unconvincing wig, and a pint-sized pugilist from another world who just wanted to make friends through torture and rigorous scientific villainy. The Three Who Rule were happy to lend their bon mots to this drama, sometimes even staying on point and discussing salient matters on screen! Next week, the return of the Miniscope, with Eccleston-era director Joe Ahearne!
