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.
Staying in bright holiday spirits, we are visited by a ghost…or rather, The Ghost, the focal point of the Twelfth Doctor’s third holiday special (depending on how you count them).
Having only ten ‘incorrect’ questions to spare, our game panel has to interview a mystery Doctor Who character to figure out their identity.
From the superfans, to the casual viewer, to the brand-new to the program, there are challenges in keeping interest in the Doctor Who franchise strong during an indeterminate filming hiatus, and an ever-changing set of access points to aired content.
It wasn’t anything like what we expected, and even less what we predicted, but with Series 12 now behind us we reflect on the wild ten-week ride we just experienced.
