Radio Free Skaro #925 - Phoenix Without Ashes
The time has come once again for everyone to lose their collective minds as a real, proper, UNIT-y, Toymaker-centric trailer graces our internet and airwaves featuring David Tennant, Donna Noble, Jemma Redgrave, and Ncuti Gatwa in two minutes and change of new footage! What did the Three Who Rule think? And what are their opinions on news such as a UK free live tv service over broadband, a Radio Times list of the top 100 television shows and radio programs, and what do they think about Big Finish Ood adventures featuring Torchwood! All of that is mere piffle however compared to the main event, a long-gestating analysis of Canadian sci-fi television “legend” The Starlost, featuring Steven, Warren, Harlan Ellison editor, author and friend Jason Davis and Incomparable host and producer Annette Wierstra. Prepare the Bounce Tube!

For the first time in almost 20 years, #WhoSpy has returned to give you all sneak peeks from behind the scenes of Doctor Who (from a year ago now, but still!) Plus we have new photos in EW that are ever-so-slightly different from what we’ve already seen of the three Tennant specials, a spurious rumor about Ryan Gosling in Doctor Who, and Jemma Redgrave saying “not really, no” to a UNIT spinoff, plus a BFI premiere, a yearbook, Dan Slott’s “Once Upon a Time Lord” is finally almost here, and Part the Second of our Classic Series Commentary for “Mawdryn Undead”!

Radio Free Skaro #921 - Maudlin Undead
It’s a mystery that isn’t as the BBC publishes then pulls confirmation that Ncuti Gatwa’s first series will air in “Spring 2024”, as we all suspected. This had the unsurprising effect of clickbait farms pondering on Doctor Who’s future, which in actuality will also feature Big Brother and Dead Set’s own Davina McCall and Indira Varma! We also have a video essay about I, Claudius (because of course we do), details on the book launch of Simon Guerrier’s “David Whitaker in an Exciting Adventure with Television”, Big Finish endings and audiobook news, and most excitingly, Part One of our Classic Series Commentary of “Mawdryn Undead”!

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 (also in Edmonton, AB) 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.
