Radio Free Skaro #158 – Amsterdamned

September 14, 2009

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.)

Kisses by the console: Romancing the Doctor

September 4, 2009

If there’s one issue that divides fans of the Doctor, it’s the thorny question of romance. Back in the old days of Classic Who, this debate was neatly avoided by alternately projecting the Doctor as an older authority figure or simply having him ignore the base urges in favour of spouting technobabble and, oh yes, battling monsters. And this suited most fans just fine.

Doctor Who: Favourite Monsters

September 4, 2009

Where are [my favorite] monsters in Doctor Who? With the re-emergence of Doctor Who into the minds of fans the world over in 2005, the initial thrill of discovering we’d soon be experiencing new adventures with a new Doctor in a new TARDIS was almost overpowering. But once we fans recovered, a new question emerged; “When will ‘Monster X’ be back?”
