It’s the sixteenth(!) anniversary of Radio Free Skaro and what better way to celebrate than with a trivia contest with questions ranging from gimme to nigh-impossible about Doctor Who featuring not only the Three Who Rule but also Erika Ensign and Kat Griffiths of Verity! Cheer, boo, cogitate alongside and stifle a swear or two as we’re all subjected to a barrage of factoids from Jacqueline Rayner’s “Doctor Who – The Official Quiz ...

It’s been a week of HBO intrigues as the American home of Doctor Who (for now) goes through massive structural changes, ditches the $90 million Batgirl film for a tax writedown, and presumably turns everything it owns into a reality show. Here to explain the business machinations, or at least further muddy the waters, are the Three Who Rule. But there’s more in the form of a Chicago Fan Expo panel featuring our very own Steven, Eri...

It’s the return of the Three Who Rule as Chris rejoins the august Radio Free Skaro crew from his recent sojourns in the United Kingdom and it’s a tragedy that it is in the sad circumstances of the passing of acting titans and Doctor Who stars Bernard Cribbins and David Warner this week. We pay tribute to these two gentlemen of stage and screen as well as looking at the latest Big Finish releases, and indeed a Humble Bundle that you...

Two Who Rule (Steven and Warren) have returned from exile on Dulkis (vacation) this week and in lieu of Chris, who continues to explore the farthest corners of the United Kingdom, we have esteemed guest co-host Dr. Heather Berberet, psychologist and frequent guest host! Just as importantly, Heather is in San Diego giving us boots on the ground insights on goings on at San Diego Comic Con, as well as weighing in on such topics as Di...

    It’s Vacations Eve for Steven and Chris and besides that the news of the week is weirdly enough Ryan Gosling wearing a Ncuti Gatwa T-shirt but hey, we’ll take what we can get! And what we get is pretty much the Timelash, a ton of Big Finish including Chronovore Content (or Chron-Con as it is also known) from Friend of the Show Liz Myles, and the finale of our gripping Classic Series Commentary for Part Four of “The Space Museum”!

    It’s the Time Before the Time of The RTD this week, as showrunner part deux Russels T Davies was a guest on the Triple C (Creative Confidence Collective) webinar and spoke of disability in the media, his writing process, creativity and the current state of the world, and we at RFS have listened and jotted down our meanderings. There’s also additional photographic evidence of Neil Patrick Harris being in Doctor Who to mull over, a c...

    Plenty of news this week, including the arrival of one Neil Patrick Harris in some form or fashion for the 60th anniversary celebrations of one Doctor Who next year, playing…that would be telling. Also a ton of Target novelizations, audio dramas both Big Finish and otherwise and Cubicle7 tabletop role playing game fun is on the way AND we have an interview with Ella Watts, the director/producer of Doctor Who Redacted, the 10-part...

    The fallow times continue with mere dribs (not even drabs available) of news this week other than one Big Finish adventure, Pluto TV arriving soon in the Great White North, and Steven appearing soon at a Doctor panel at Chicago Fan Expo, but somehow the Three Who Rule managed to get 50 minutes of joyful banter and abject nonsense out of their brains for you dear listener, all before continuing with our exciting and as-always totall...

    Have you ever wanted to manage the Doctor Who brand? Yes, the dream of many a British schoolchild can be yours if you have extensive experience in said management of brands and Doctor Who and probably a bunch of other stuff dummies like the Three Who Rule don’t understand. And that’s the news as new Doctor Who continues to be made, away from prying eyes! But we also have perennial fan favorite (is it though?) the Timelash, and Part...

    We return to the Times of Fallowness after weeks of blockbuster news involving new and old Doctors and other such delights, but we still have cogent analysis of the BBC’s new digital machinations, insane tale-spinning about Steven traveling back to 1975 and saving missing episodes from incinerator-loving poltroons in The Timelash, the usual tat and nonsense and and AND…that’s it. Banter! Enjoy it! Or else!

    The casting announcements will continue because morale improves! Official news from Auntie Beeb about Yasmin Finney joining the cast as Rose (but not THAT Rose, despite what Variety may say) as well as one Rachel Talalay AKA SuperWhoDirector back on the show! Plus the usual audio, Terry Nation Army and Timelash shenanigans and a feature interview with Matthew Jacobs and Vanessa Yuille, the co-directors and co-producers of fandom-fo...

    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 ra...

    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 hi...

    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-Tu...

    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,...

    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...

    With a week to go before Sea Devils become Legendary, the Three Who Rule are trawling through what little promotion has eked out of the BBC and its subordinate broadcasters to divine just what we’re in for as of April 17. 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, P...

    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...
