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.
The world of Doctor Who was thrown aback this week with news that beloved television writer and novelist Terrance Dicks passed away at the age of 84. Dicks’ contribution to the show and indeed many of our childhoods can’t be overestimated, from his time working with Barry Letts during the 1970s to his prodigious run on the Target novelizations, “The Five Doctors”, the New Adventures…the mind reels. We also continue our Series 11 commentary series with a look at “The Ghost Monument”, featuring Deeper Cuts host and Head Over Feels Tony Stark consulting expert Shannon Dohar!
