Making headlines with more supposition than surprise, we take apart this past week’s announcement that Chris Chibnall and Jodie Whittaker will be exiting Doctor Who in 2022 after no less than three special feature broadcasts.
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.
As a little bonus episode for our younger listeners, Keir is joined in the GPR studios by a 3-year old book critic to review the newest kids’ book publication from Pop Classics & Quirk Books.

We prepared ourselves for a good old mercenary adventure, with equal parts humorous wordplay and brutish thuggery. The surprises we were thrown left us gasping for air and grasping for comprehension.
The 19th Century “Current War” battles for top billing with a malevolent alien invasion as the most entertaining conflict in the fourth episode of Series 12.
