We're back!

After many months in the digital doldrums the Radio Times Podcast (ask for it by name) has found its voice again.

This week host Tim Glanfield discusses The Great British Bake Off's shock move to Channel 4 with James Gill and Ben Dowell, X Factor 2016 getting its mojo back with Emma Daly and what we can expect from Doctor Who spin-off Class with Huw Fullerton.

Just three guys talkin' 'bout Who for half an hour. Still with us? OK then. We discuss which episode you voted the best (and worst) in series 8, how Peter Capaldi is settling into the Time Lord's cardigan, the return of Missy/The Master, the evolution of Clara and what the future (and Christmas special) might hold.

This is one for the fans. But it's Doctor Who. Of course you're a fan.
