Doctor Who: Radio Free Skaro

The Three Who Rule

Radio Free Skaro is possibly the most popular, most prolific and charmingly irreverent (but never irrelevant) Doctor Who podcast around. Since August 2006, hosts Warren (in Vancouver, BC) and Steven (in Edmonton, AB) have provided listeners with their brand of amusing Doctor Who praise and punishment. A year later, Chris (also in Edmonton, AB) was added to the team, and The Three Who Rule were born. Recommended by Doctor Who Magazine, Radio Free Skaro provides an entertaining and diverting listen for the diehard or casual Doctor Who fan. New episodes usually appear on Sundays, following a loose magazine format of the three hosts discussing the news and events of the past week in the worlds of Doctor Who, Torchwood, and the Sarah Jane Adventures. They have also recorded special commentary podcasts for classic series and new series episodes of Doctor Who along with interviews of some of the brightest of the Doctor Who luminaries. Radio Free Skaro is also the official podcast of Gallifrey One, the world’s largest and longest-running annual Doctor Who convention.

    Radio Free Skaro #825 - The Village on the Edge of Forever

    1:27:31

    The Angels have the podcast! Or at least the attention of the Three Who Rule, who did not blink or look away from “Village of the Angels” and for your own safety you should keep your ears peeled to their deep and cogent thoughts along with Warren’s pointless digressions and surface-level analysis of Star Trek. Of course there are also stats and a Timelash focused on that most auspicious of dates, November 23! Join us or get quantum extracted back to 1967 or 1901!

    In merely a week we’ll have new Doctor Who to discuss as Doctor Who: Flux – Chapter One: The Halloween Apocalypse arrives to please our eyeballs, but in the meantime listen to the Three Who Rule talk about Class, binge vs once a week episode drops, the general incompetence of a certain Canadian sci-fi channel, buffoonish press pack drops and a truly epic length Timelash where they invent the exciting and entirely fictional new television mystery series Mumford & Fay starring Suranne Jones and Judi Dench!  Links: Support Radio Free Skaro on Patreon The Timelash The Halloween Apocalypse, October 31, 6:25pm on BBC One The Halloween Apocalypse, October 31, 2:25pm EST on BBC America The Halloween Apocalypse, October 31, 7:55pm EST on CTV Sci-Fi Doctor Who: Flux press pack BBC America extended cut?

    1:55:25

    After pining, complaining, and begging for the Doctor Who Series 13 trailer, it has finally arrived and the Three Who Rule will pass judgment on it along with an epic-length episode featuring a visit from Emily Cook from Doctor Who Magazine and an interview with Gavin Collinson and Richard Wilkinson from Maze Theory about the new Doctor Who: The Edge of Reality video game.

    Radio Free Skaro #819 - So Glad We Can Finally Talk About This

    1:25:01

    Our long international nightmare is over, sort of, as we finally have an airdate for the premiere of Doctor Who: Flux of Halloween night (in the UK) though a new trailer remains elusive. What is omnipresent is our (mostly Steven’s) utter rage at the BBC’s marketing “efforts” for the new series as all social media was deleted and then reinstated for…reasons? Besides invective and suspicion we also have musings on the past via the Timelash, Season 17 gets The Collection Blu-ray treatment, and the second and concluding part of our Classic Series Commentary for "The Edge of Destruction"!

    Radio Free Skaro #818 - Name Walrus Face

    1:33:43

    It’s been a week since the surprise announcement that Russell T Davies is returning to our favourite televisual drama, and yet there is nothing in the way of Series 13 teasing to satiate our base desires for more Who. Nothing, that is, except the Three Who Rule discussing a whole slew of action dollies, nostalgic remembrances via The Timelash, slagging off Canadian TV as is tradition, and a riveting commentary on Part the First of 1964’s bottle episode(s) psychodrama "The Edge of Destruction"!

    Radio Free Skaro #817 - Bad Wolf Too

    1:23:57

    This was supposed to be a slow news week but a phoenix in the form of one Russell T Davies smashed such expectations with news he is returning to re-helm Doctor Who’s 60th anniversary and beyond in a new Golden Age of Telestreaming Audiovisuals. What does it all mean? Join the Three Who Rule as they madly cogitate over the implications of the announcement and muddle through their own complicated feelings on this most weighty of developments. Plus the usual Timelashing, Big Finish updates, video game-ry, and more! But mostly, let’s be honest, all-consuming RTD banter.  Links: Support Radio Free Skaro on Patreon!
