There are a few podcasts devoted to Doctor Who out there. I like PodShock--it's mainly 3 guys discussing the show, but they also have different people who submit their own segments (Big Finish reviews, convention reports, etc).

There's another one called WhoCast, but I haven't heard any of these yet.

Also, they're not calling it a "podcast", the way Sci-Fi does for Ron Moore's BSG commentaries, but there's a commentary track for "The Christmas Invasion" available on the official BBC site.

PodShock is a pretty good podcast. For those who use iTunes or have iPods, theres a version with chapter markers and different segment graphics, options that are very rarely used. It's useful for jumping over spoilery descriptions and other segments.

I also heard the commentary track, and had a very hard time keeping it in sync. My guess is that there was an additional edit or two made after the track was recorded, which caused things to be out of whack.

Whomix radio is all about remixes of the title theme, available either as a podcast or downloads from the main site. There are hundreds of them, going back years, though earlier years are only available via Bit Torrent.

There's confirmation from the BBC now, that all of S2 will be accompanied by online podcasts ala BSG.

The commentary that goes with "New Earth" is quite interesting and should be heard after watching the episode and possibly the Doctor Who Confidential "New New Doctor". As the commentators are David Tennant, Russell T. Davies and Phil Collinson, you get the interesting mix of someone who was on set, someone who wrote the episode and someone who was behind the scenes arranging everything. They seemed to get along quite well, with no one really dominating the conversation. David Tennant is pretty good about asking the random questions/random tidbits that fanboys and fangirls might want to know.

I haven't heard the series one commentary yet, so I can't really compare and contrast.

Here's an episode of the awesome Cult Movies Podcast dealing with Doctor Who, although discussion of the show actually doesn't come up until halfway through since they somehow get sidetracked into all kinds of hilarious discussion about the Harlem Globetrotters.

My favorite bit: "I remember before one season they did an interview bragging about how much bigger their budget was this time, and then they opened the season with the Doctor fighting a giant chicken."

You know, I can't remember any story, let alone a season opener, that involved poultry in any context. Which story are they talking about?

Figure it's about time to update this thread after, oh, more than three years of inactivity! The reason? To tell you about our Doctor Who podcast, Radio Free Skaro.

Radio Free Skaro is a weekly podcast that features three fine fellows who blather on about Doctor Who in an irreverent and amusing way. We've been at it for over three years now, and have racked up over 150 episodes. Some of our more notable episodes include interviews with new series writers Rob Shearman and Phil Ford, and our discussion on the perceived homophobia of Torchwood: Children of Earth received a ton of attention from around the web in July 2009. We also do commentary episodes for both new series and classic series episodes.

Visit www.radiofreeskaro.com for everything about the show, including our most recent episode:

Radio Free Skaro #158 - Amsterdamned

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 installments 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 #159 - Throw Down The Quantlet

With the Doctor Who Magazine release of the ming-mongiest list of favorite Doctor Who episodes in the past 11 years (when a nuWho-less but also ming-mongy list sparked debate amongst the faithful), the Three Who Rule were like starving, nerdy dogs drawn to raw meat. Weighing in on their own picks and what they felt was wrong-headed and frankly evil placement of some of their favorite episodes, they also made time to speculate on the scheduling of Dreamland, the Waters of Mars and to roundly chastise Richard Curtis for not getting his Doctor Who air dates right. And oh yes, a Miniscope featuring Pennant Roberts also made an appearance, flood-lit and underbudgeted. Hoo…ray.

Radio Free Skaro #160 - Ferme La Boucher

This week’s Miniscope saw an appearance by Chris Boucher, best known not only for his scripts for Robots of Death, The Face of Evil and Image of the Fendahl, but also for writing for Blake’s 7 (acting as script editor for the show from 1978 to 1981) and Star Cops and….his segment consisted of six minutes. The remaining time was filled with the trademarked digressionary banter known and tolerated by RFS fandom, ranging from a list of Gallifrey 2010’s many exciting panels to the strange character known as “Itchy Spider-man.”

Radio Free Skaro #161 - Second Hand News

Rumours, rumours and more rumours were grist for the RFS mill this week, as the Three Who Rule speculated on a new, possibly leaked list of Season 5/1/31 writers (and confirmed one or two writers (Chris Chibnall) and directors (Ashley Way, Andrew Gunn) along the way), watching Phil (friend of the show) Ford’s reactions to watching Dreamland (very meta) and DVD speculation run amok. All this and a Fiona Cumming Miniscope.

RADIO FREE SKARO #164 - CLOUGH LUCK

With Warren on holiday in Japan and China, Katrina joins the fray (see what we did there?) as the Radio Free Skaro gang discusses more about the Doctor Who Magazine ranking poll, a mass of DVD news as well as the premiere story of the new Sarah Jane Adventures series and more. Was Sarah Jane worthwhile viewing? Will Doctor Who fandom become collective paupers from the deluge of early 2010 DVD releases? Will Chris Clough get the tongue lashing so many think he deserves in this week’s Miniscope? Delve into this week’s gripping episode to find out!

After wandering away from the DW boards a bit, I saw this thread and I was going to recommend Radio Free Skaro, but I see I was beaten to the punch!

It's a good one. I'm picky about podcasts. Some of them just have too much awkward dead air or "um...uh..." stuff that drives me nuts. Not so at RFS. Funny, amusing, and so nerdy.


I also went through some of Tachyon TV's old podcasts and the commentaries for Torchwood's "Cyberwoman" and Old Skool Who's "Claws of Axos" made me laugh so hard I almost peed myself.

RADIO FREE SKARO #165 - RADIO FREE SKARO IN AN EXCITING ADVENTURE WITH THE MINUTE DOCTOR WHO PODCAST

Warren is still trundling around Asia so in his absence the remaining Two Who Rule invited along Luke from The Minute Doctor Who Podcast to join in the frivolity. Some good news (Doctor Who confirmed for Christmas and a Children in Need Preview of Tennant’s penultimate episode) was discussed as was some bad news (various bits of DVD-related disappointments) whilst opinions were split down the middle on the latest installment of The Sarah Jane Adventures (quite a tough thing to do with an odd number of participants). David Whitaker gets quite the workout in the miniscope, complete with a Vampire/Halloween tie-in, and Steven finally commits to an appearance on Luke’s Doctor Who-based Mastermind quiz!

RADIO FREE SKARO #166 - ALL ROADS LEAD TO AY-DRIC

Warren is finally back from Japan and China so the Three Who Rule were once again united. Doctor Who spinoffs were the order of the day as The Sarah Jane Adventures featured the first signs of The Doctor since Easter and K9 got a preview on British TV but everything is trumped by the announcement of The Waters of Mars’ release date. The drought is soon over and we have but two weeks to wait for the gap year to wind down. Peter Moffatt is looked at in the miniscope, Dreamland will be getting a preview in short order and surprise surprise there’s DVD news and more all in this episode where we actually keep to time!

RADIO FREE SKARO #167 - PHILLING TIME BEFORE THE WATERS OF MARS


With just a week to go before the UK premiere of the next Doctor Who special, The Waters of Mars, RFS’s own Steven sat down with the co-writer of the special, Phil Ford, to talk about the episode in an exclusive, in-depth interview that also covered Phil’s work on The Sarah Jane Adventures and Dreamland. Before that, the Three Who Rule do their best to plow through what was a busy news week in the world of Who.

RADIO FREE SKARO #168 - SQUEE HOUSE OF HORROR

After seven long months, Doctor Who returned to the airwaves in high style with “The Waters of Mars,” a topper of a story and one heck of a lead-in to the Doctor’s imminent demise and resurrection. The Three Who Rule were effusive in their praise of The Waters of Mars, though somewhat less so when the conversation came to the latest episodes of the Sarah Jane Adventures, which Chris (also known as “Curmudge-or”) succinctly labeled as “poop”. The trio even discussed how Steven somehow managed to get onto UK radio last week and participate in a conference call with David Tennant. Intellectual banter and relentless name-dropping ahoy!

RADIO FREE SKARO #170 - BACK TO REALITY

After an eventful few weeks of New Who and rampant podcest, the Three Who Rule (reduced to Two Who Adjudicate for this episode) settled down to news, shenanigans, and rampant avoiding of anything that could possibly be construed as a spoiler. But hope and glory came in the form of Malcolm Clarke, the first musician to grace the Miniscope (yes, it’s back, at least temporarily) and an underrated craftsman in the world of Classic Who. Synthesizers from 1972 and marching Cyberman themes ahoy!

RADIO FREE SKARO #171 - YOU'LL NEVER WORK IN THIS TOWN AGAIN

With the Three Who Rule reunited once more, and with the analytic powers of the Third Guy squarely aimed at schedules, Appreciation Indexes and other such numeric minutiae, a slow news week was transformed into quasi-random babble and buildup to the exciting segment you’ve all been waiting for….Douglas Camfield in the Miniscope. Praise for Camfield’s prodigious output was universal if varying in intensity, but all three hosts agreed the man was a force for good (for the show) and bad (for Dudley Simpson’s career.)

RADIO FREE SKARO #173 - THE RISE AND FALL OF ZIGGY STARDUST AND THE WATERS OF MARS

With TV viewers in Canada and the US now caught up with the rest of the world regarding The Waters of Mars, the time was right for the Radio Free Skaro team to provide a running commentary on the recent masterpiece bestowed upon us by Graeme Harper, Russell T Davies, and (friend of the show) Phil Ford. Main points of discussion during the commentary were the unparalleled acting skills of David Tennant, the talents of directorial master Graeme Harper, and why it’s so difficult to find a timepiece that accurately measures rels.

It’s the End of Time and the end of an era, and the Three Who Rule were all over the map in their praise and derision of David Tennant and RTD’s swan song. One thing they all did agree on was their palpable excitement over Matt Smith’s new Doctor and Steven Moffat’s upcoming stewardship of Doctor Who, and that it’ll be a long few months indeed before Spring 2010.

RADIO FREE SKARO #176 - NEIL BEFORE ZOD!

One mini-break in the wilderness is over for Doctor Who and it’s time to look at the gap year that was as we head into the next wilderness mini-break, awaiting Matt Smith’s first series. To aid in the retrospective the Three Who Rule dragged Tachyon TV’s own Neil Perryman kicking and screaming into the (virtual) recording booth, Vinvocci style. More bile was flung about than a monkey can fling poop, though kudos were given where appropriate… but do we ever want to see a gap year again?

RADIO FREE SKARO #178 - FNARGENGRUVEN


In a move that could be precipitated only by Slownewsweekor, the Three Who Rule relied upon Torchwood discussion to fuel the latest Radio Free Skaro episode. The news of Torchwood maybe coming to America hit like a ton of bricks and startled much of the Doctor Who world, causing panic and looting; there may or may not have been talk of small children getting crushed underfoot as a result.

The news of a Doctor Who movie sent The Three Who Rule so far past the point of bile they circled back around to apathy, but not without taking a few hostages along the way. In a slow news week to end all slow news weeks, digression and hatred were employed like plow horses in an effort to simply fill time. Steven points the gun of spite squarely in a new direction, Warren wastes no time in slagging off other Sci Fi TV shows and Chris even sings a few bars… it’s just that kind of episode.

Did the episode fare better this time round after the scolding it received in Radio Free Skaro 174? You decide. Also discussed was news of Gaiman, gay men, and gained men, er, companions. Onwards!

RADIO FREE SKARO #181 - PURPLE MONKEY DISHWASHER

The Three Who Rule created their own news this week by dropping a small bombshell into the world of Doctor Who fandom by being the first to reveal official BBC details of the upcoming Series Fnarg. Once that was coyly dealt with, and after a dark, sinister, and negative experience watching The End of Time Part One last week, the Three Who Rule were in finer spirits for their second outing in Finale-Stan, the catchily-titled “The End of Time Part Two”. Between Chris’s endless (no really, they just wouldn’t end) gags about slash writers and the occasionally engaging spectacle onscreen, your erstwhile hosts proved to be much more affable on this leg of the excursion, and bile was replaced by hope and optimism as Matt Smith crashed onto our screens and into our coal-black, ginger-hating hearts.

Stay tuned all this week for daily podcasts, special guests and the most fun you can legally have involving Doctor Who and cast of thousands (well, a thousand and change.) Not all was silent from The Beeb this week, however, as the start date for Series Fnarg has been announced for April 3 on BBC One, hot on the heels of the new trailer for Matt Smith’s debut run.
