Radio Free Skaro has a new home!

September 15, 2009

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.

“The Next Doctor” on SPACE on March 14

February 21, 2009

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…

Radio Free Skaro #60 – Milestones and Memorials

November 25, 2007

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!
