Radio Free Skaro #158 – Amsterdamned

September 14, 2009
rfs158

With news sorely lacking, the Three Who Rule were momentarily relieved to hide in the welcome shelter of a commentary, in this case the third and fourth instalments of “Arc of Infinity”, a maudlin yarn notable more for IKEA furniture infesting Gallifrey than for an interesting story. But their welcome was short lived, as Cracklor once again besieged Warren and his computer more or less opted for suicide….much like Omega, as his Rice Krispie wounds boiled into nothingness. Poignancy ahead, dear listeners. Sheer poignancy.

Radio Free Skaro #157 – Byrne, Baby, Byrne

September 6, 2009
rfs157

The classic series commentary makes a not-so-triumphant return to the Radio Free Skaro fold as we merge the Miniscope with the old time-filling standby. With Johnny Byrne as our subject we plod through the week’s weak news with discussion of lowlights such as Warriors of the Deep and our commentary of the first half of Arc of Infinity. There should have been another way, indeed!

(NOTE: This is the fixed version of this episode.)

Radio Free Skaro #156 – Polyphase Avatron

August 31, 2009

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.

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.
