As the GPR signal winds its way into an eighth year on the Internet, Jay and Keir “discover” an early conversation (we write this in the ‘Sarcastica’ font) from the 2012 planning stages.
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.
When official word on the progress, production, or even pulse of Series 12 development is far and few between, even the most devoted fans start wondering what’s going on behind the curtain.
We task ourselves this week with identifying just a few of the briefly-met characters who we wish had another opportunity, large or small, to return to the program. It could be a passing cameo, a where-are-they-now glimpse into their lives after having met and interacted with the Doctor, or even a full episode adventure with them past, present, or future.
