Doctor Who: Radio Free Skaro
Radiophonic Workshop at Chichester University

Radiophonic Workshop at Chichester University

This past weekend, the beloved Radiophonic Workshop, in the form of Dick Mills, Peter Howell, Mark Ayres, Roger Limb, Paddy Kingsland, and new addition Kieron Pepper, spent a day at Chichester University delivering talks and panels as well as a live performance. While we at Radio Free Skaro were nowhere near the event, much as we’d have enjoyed it, thankfully some wonderful people who were there…

rfs417Pertwee! Jo! Troughton the younger! An incontinent skull! With a cast like that it can only be the Three Who Rule’s commentary on “The Curse of Peladon”! Watch a prince in short pants fight a revolution, superstition and a questionable monster suit in this Third Doctor…classic? Also, news and discussion, including the exciting news that Matt Smith and Karen Gillan are coming to Calgary Expo!…

Radio Free Skaro #416 - Random Access Memories #DoctorWho #Podcast #FluidLinks

rfs416Sadly, 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 Johns, 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…

Radio Free Skaro #415 – More Of A Table Wine

rfs415It’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…

rfs414Only a mere month after the celebrations of Gallifrey One 2014, the 26th iteration of the best convention in the world…sold out in 75 minutes this Friday. The Three Who Rule, poised over their keyboards intently, managed to secure their registration and will be in Los Angles in February 2015, and hope to see many of you there! Gallifrey aside, there was news this week of bespoke music…

pcapitated:

Peter Capaldi serving as a daily reminder that a fandom can be more than a fandom and that sometimes dreams do come true. Here we are making fanart, writing fan letters, analysing things more than the creators themselves… etc. Much like the young Peter Capaldi. So don’t let anyone tell you that the thing you like is a waste of time or that you’re only trying to escape the “real world”. That thing you like could be what inspires you, fuels your ambitions, and be the most amazing part of your life. And Peter Capaldi is living proof of that, because Peter Capaldi became The Doctor.

rfs413It’s the return of Fluid Links! Yes, everyone’s favourite mercury-based connection thingy is back, and we’ve got (some) of your questions to hash over, cogitate upon, and generally discuss. 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…

Radio Free Skaro #412 - Ahearne It Through The Grapevine #doctorwho #miniscope #joeahearne

rfs412The 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…

Radio Free Skaro #411 - Kicking the Styres #doctorwho #commentary #TheSontaranExperiment

rfs411The 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…

rfs410With Gallifrey One 2014 behind them, the Three Who Rule rallied their weakened, battle-scarred livers and turned their attention to Matt Smith’s last hurrah, “The Time of the Doctor”. Much appreciation! Such regeneration! But first, news, updates and other matters of import! And next week, the classic series commentaries return with “The Sontaran Experiment!” And a week afterwards, the…
