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.

    We’ve got news about Gallifrey One, tat, stats, loads of Terrance Dicks book-related nonsense and the usual news niblets, but more importantly, we’re starting our epic three-part miniscope journey on the work of director Rachel Talalay with “Dark Water” and “Death in Heaven”! Join the Three Who Rule as they effusively praise one of the best directors in the history of the programme!

    For the next three weeks, we are presenting some archive content in the leadup to our three-part Miniscope on the works of director Rachel Talalay.

    Rachel has been a friend to us here at RFS, appearing no fewer than six times, and we thought it was worth re-releasing our interviews and commentaries with her over the years as a lead-in to our conversations about her work on Doctor Who.

    This instalment features our first two interviews with Rachel. The first is Warren’s interview with her, which we originally released on Radio Free Skaro #445 in the runup to the Series 8 finale in 2014, as well as our second chat with Rachel from Radio Free Skaro #463, recorded in a very busy lobby at the LAX Marriott at Gallifrey One in February 2015.

    Thanks for listening to these, and we hope you enjoy the first part of our Miniscope on director Rachel Talalay, covering “Dark Water” and “Death in Heaven”, on the next episode of Radio Free Skaro.

    As we return to a Dearth of new Doctor Who here in the early days of 2021, we are forced to comfort ourselves with the cold logic of “Revolution of the Daleks” stats, as well as Big Finish’s exciting reveal of Christopher Eccleston’s audio debut! Throw in some dribs and drabs of audioboks and other ephemera but enough stalling, it’s time to tear off the bandage and suffer with us for the second half of our Classic Series Commentary of “The Creature from the Pit”!

    The moment has arrived! The moment being John Barrowman, Chris Noth, a bunch of Security Drone-leks and the Return of (and breaking of) the Fam as Jodie Whittaker graces our screens once more as the Doctor in “Revolution of the Daleks”! What did the Three Who Rule think of the only new Doctor Who we’ll see for months and months? How did we react to Graham and Ryan leaving the TARDIS?

    The countdown has begun for both an end to Our Year of Complete Garbage 2020 and “Revolution of the Daleks”, airing New Year’s Day and which apparently contains a new scene filmed in the aforementioned Year Of Badness. The New Year’s special will also be available from the BBC in 4K HDR, and if audio is your thing, gentleman voiceslinger Nicholas Briggs has some tips on voicing the Daleks! But let’s be honest here, you’re clamouring for our thoughts in our Classic Series Commentary on the Fourth Doctor story “The Creature From The Pit”! Don’t bore us, let’s get to Chloris!

    With mere days before the Doctor, the fam, and Captain Jack square off against decidedly slim and stylish Daleks in “Revolution of the Daleks” on N, tweeting and audio seem to be the order of the day to fill the emptiness in our Who-craving souls. But while all this ephemera may seem like a mere distraction, true nonsense is only achieved on the cosmic battleground that is Trivia, Mr. Fibuli as adjudicated by Verity, Lazy Doctor Who and Total Party Kill’s own Erika Ensign!
