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.

    BREAKING NEWS KLAXON! 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!

    It’s the conclusion of Doctor Who: Flux and the Three Who Rule stayed up late (but not as late as the brave and valiant livestream viewers!) to hash out what they liked, what they didn’t, and what baffled and confused them as Series 13 reached the end of its six-part saga with “The Vanquishers”. But there’s more to come as “Eve of the Daleks” is headed our way on New Year’s Day and..well, that’s it until Easter! Between the very new Flux discussion and the near endless pondering during the Timelash about 625-line video and the animated fate of “The Feast of Steven”, we managed to eke out almost two hours of quality banter, so we hope you like it!
