Radio Free Skaro #156 – Polyphase Avatron

August 31, 2009
rfs156

The Three Who Rule were in fine fettle this week, if fettle is judged by ability to digress and avoid the topic at hand. Through discussion that veered into subjects as strange as podcestuous panels in Derby, the horror of a rebroadcast of Dimensions in Time and the continued demonstration of Warren’s complete lack of a short-term memory, the trio ambled towards the Miniscope and Douglas Adams’ short but memorable tenure as Doctor Who script editor.

In an episode of threes, the Three Who Rule discuss the first of three filler Doctor Who clip shows (“Doctor Who: Greatest Moments”), Series Three of the Sarah Jane Adventures, upcoming DVD releases featuring Doctor No. 3, Jon Pertwee, and last but not least, the third and final installment of the Miniscope segment featuring Robert Holmes. Next week’s Miniscope topic was also determined via the Randomizer…but you’ll have to listen to the show to find out who it is! (Hint: it’s not Pennant Roberts.)

Gary Russell experiences HAVOC

August 20, 2009

Last night at the monthly Doctor Who New York (DWNY) meetup, special guest Gary Russell — former Doctor Who Magazine editor, author, actor and current script editor — was presented with a swish Radio Free Skaro “Action by HAVOC” mug. Thanks go to Barnaby Edwards (no, not THAT one) from DWNY for this honour.

Radio Free Skaro #154 – Condo says LOL XD

August 17, 2009

Many a broadcasting intrigue formed the backbone of Whoish news this week, from BBC America’s machinations to…BBC Wordwide’s transgressions. The Three Who Rule also engaged in Socratic debate over the claims of Rona Munro, the scribe behind “Survival”, that romance in nuWho constitutes lazy writing. All that and another exciting Miniscope examining the glory years of one Robert Holmes as he ascended to script writer and Doctor Who demigod.

Radio Free Skaro #153 – A Tweet Too Far

August 10, 2009
rfs153

The Three Who Rule covered the gamut of Whoish happenings this week, from the shocking revelation that Meglos will return for David Tennant’s finale (unconfirmed) to Ian Levine’s rather tenuous grasp on the the fundamental underpinnings of the internet (hint: don’t fear the link.) And amongst this madness was revealed the Miniscope, a new weekly feature examining a writer, producer or other behind the scenes chieftain whose drive and talent brought us the Classic Who episodes we love so dearly. Up first is Robert Holmes, or at the very least his contribution to the ouvres of Mr. Troughton and Mr. Pertwee. Enjoy, dear listeners.
