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 #934 - The Number of The Meep
Doctor Who is back, and so are Russell T Davies, The Doctor (the Fourteenth version, more or less), Donna, her family, new addition Rose Temple-Noble, and a suspiciously cute furbag sprung from the comic book pages known as The Star Beast! What did the Three Who Rule think of the inaugural episode of the RTD2 era, the differences between 10-Tennant and 14-Tennant, the resolution of the MetaCrisis, and everything else? Take a listen, and then dive deep into the Daleks In Colour, the Fifteenth Doctor meeting William Hartnell (sorta), a cavalcade of VAM, and all the other bibs and bobs that come with the 60th anniversary of our favourite show! Wait for it…Allons-y!

The BEST Doctor Who podcasts
There are a lot out there, some which are excellent for specific Doctor Who offerings, but if you only listen to one it should be Radio free Skaro. They are great all rounders, giving interesting opinions and keeping you up to date with all things DW.
I’ve listened every week since 2008 - regardless of where I’m at with my fandom, it’s the one thing I never drop.
