Specifically at radiofreeskaro.com, our new home for jaunty nonsense involving the good Doctor. Head on over, crack open a malted beverage of some kind, and don’t let Pedantor out, he hates the neighbourhood kids and is known to bite.
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.

In our ongoing Wednesday special series featuring interviews and such from Gallifrey ’09 in February (just to see how long we can milk it), we bring you an interview with Doctor Who Restoration Team impresario Steve Roberts, wherein he discusses past and future projects regarding the classic Who DVD series.

For those in Canada who have yet to see the Doctor Who 2008 Christmas Special “The Next Doctor”, SPACE will be airing the special (and not the CBC) on Saturday, March 14 (possibly at 9:00 PM ET). This news comes to us from Benjamin Elliott, proprietor of the superb This Week In Doctor Who Yahoo group (and also seen on Outpost Gallifrey), who has helped us out several times in the past.
Of course, if you listen to our shows, we’ve long since talked about/hashed/re-hashed/spoiled the hell out of TND already…
We at Radio Free Skaro are pretty excited about this : an exclusive interview with Phil Collinson! Phil was nice enough to sit down a chat with Warren. Check out the audio from it here (the video will be posted later!) :

Chris, the venerable Third Guy, recently appeared on the podcast “Tim’s Take On…” when he joined the prolific Tim Drury and others on a pub crawl in central London to celebrate the 45th anniversary of Doctor Who. Join the fun with some of the folks from a London Doctor Who meetup group and cast your memories back to some classic stories as London sights are discussed.

The 44th anniversary of Doctor Who was marked by two sad occasions with the passing Peter Haining, the author of Doctor Who: A Celebration (the bible of the show in our formative years), and Verity Lambert, the co-creator of the program. But it wasn’t all doom and gloom, as we delved into how we celebrated the show’s birthday, the conclusion of the first season of the Sarah Jane Adventures, and other bits and pieces. Enjoy!
Time Crash! Yes, the first meeting of Doctors old and new was of course on top of our list of things to talk about, but more or less everything else was Barrowman this and musical theatre that, along with our usual helpings of abuse and miscellany. Enjoy!
JJ Abrams, the creator of Lost and Heroes, is also the driving force between a new reboot of the Star Trek franchise starring the original Enterprise crew during their first missions. All well and good, and I’d rather see JJ Abrams tackle Trek than Rick “yeah, I’ve been out of ideas since the mid-90′s” Berman, but apparently he’s cast Simon “Shaun of the Dead” Pegg as Scotty. Pegg has appeared in Doctor Who and I have no doubt of his genre bona fides….but Scotty? Something about that just doesn’t work for me.
With a surfeit of news, the premiere of the Sarah Jane Adventures and Blink, one of the seasons best episodes, as the subject of our commentary, the Three Who Rule had plenty to shoot their mouths off about. And shoot they did, though not always on topic. Enjoy!
