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.
Diving in with more unanswered questions than we thought was physically safe to carry, we throw caution to the wind and absorb the finale of the twelfth modern season.
Bracing ourselves for a tumbling, screeching, the-brakes-are-out ride into the final story arc of the season, we’re given even more questions to add to the existing pile, with little time left for answers.
It may not be technically adjoined to the finale two-parter to follow, but this Thirteenth Doctor ‘ghost story’ has so much to offer in terms of immediate enjoyment and future consideration, it feels like more than the forty-nine minute runtime could realistically contain.
Our GPR team is somewhat divided on the seventh Series 12 episode, both in how it lands as a science fiction story, and how it incorporates the concerns of mental health.
We dissect the sixth episode of Series 12, and find that there’s a time and a place for a proper “breather episode” amidst all the uproar.
