“Enjoy the journey while you’re on it.”
After ten months of waiting, we dip back into the daily doings of the three isolated companions to see how they’ve fared with their ten months away from the Doctor. We have an answer to the frenetic final moments of Series 12, and all four of us are quite satisfied with the outcome, albeit very, very bittersweet.
The performances, the pacing, and the conscious decision to keep this an adventure story with emotional moments — as opposed to an emotional story with an adventure inserted to lead progression — are some of the high points for our entertainment. We discuss the reunions, the reactions, the departures, and the repercussions headed into Series 13, but all in all, we agree that even if this is the sole story to carry us until the new series is safely produced and broadcast, it gives us plenty to ponder.
