Gallifrey One is back, and it’s about time! Yes, dates have been confirmed and the NFL has been defeated as Gallifrey One returns to the LAX Marriott on February 18-20, 2022, its traditional President’s Day weekend. Something to look forward to as the snow melts and the COVID vaccines flow. In the meantime, it’s the return of one of our favourite segments, where you, the listener, pick the topics! Yes, it’s Fluid You asked, we mean...

We took a break from the news last week to revel in Gallifrey One events of the past and to look forward to better times in the future, so this week we catch up with all the news we missed, including several Big Finish releases, new books, But let’s get to the heart of this thing, as Hunter S. Thompson once said, with our commentary for “Revolution of the Daleks” with Verity’s own Deb Stanish!

    In any other year, this would be our last transmission from the LAX Marriott and Gallifrey One, tired but happy after another year with our favorite convention and our favorite people. However in this time of COVID 19 such things are not possible (temporarily!) so we’ve done the next best thing and have Gally impresario Shaun Lyon here to discuss conventions past and future, how to deal with a global pandemic, and more! We also pre...

    The Saturday at any Gallifrey One has traditionally been our busiest, gathering as many interviews as we could to flesh out our weekend release schedule. On this episode of Radio Free Skaro, we flash back to a particularly notable Saturday at the 2012 edition of Gallifrey One, where we interviewed William Russell, Waris Hussein, and Philip Segal, all in the course of an afternoon. We were so young and hungry back in those days!

    Usually at this time of the week, at this time of the year, we would be kicking off Gallifrey One with a live show featuring a number of guests attending the convention that year. So this year, as part of our Tales of Gallifrey One series, we present a "greatest hits" selection from our various live shows of years past. Here is Peter Davison (2016), Philip Hinchcliffe (2013), Terrance Dicks (2014), Pete McTighe, Vinay Patel...

    It’s been a very quiet week for Doctor Who news, but that won’t stop us from waffling on about KSPS Doctor Who broadcast schedules of yesteryear, Babylon 5 upgrades and other such ephemera! Mere distraction though for part three of our Rachel Talalay Miniscope, where we look at World Enough and Time, the Doctor Falls and Twice Upon a Time!

    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.

    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...

    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? And more to the point, who the hell is John Bish...

    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 clamourin...
