‘DOCTOR WHO’ returns with its biggest series debut in a decade, but what are the pundits missing about this new incarnation of the sci-fi institution? Will JOHN GRANT’s arch, observational electropop – showcased on new album ‘Love Is Magic’ – hit the spot with our panel? And we load up on collard greens and grits to explore PRIMAL SCREAM’s post-‘Screamadelica’ journey into fatback gumbo chicken-scratch soul as their lost Memphis tapes reappear after 20 years.

Guests HANNAH VERDIER of The Guardian and MICHAEL HANN of the FT, The Spectator and er The Guardian join Andrew and Siân to pick through the chitlins of pop culture.
