Well here we are, then. Story one from series three. My favourite TP audio.
Coinciding with the very sad passing of TIM actor Philip Gilbert, this story6 - either deliberately or accidently - has a genuinely melancholy feel about it. Apart from John's continuing problems to function properly as a human being, we meet young Robert, who is similarly isolated. His case is at least under investigation by Therese (played by Doctor Who veteran India Fisher - she even has a Doctor Who-related line).
This all culminates in a spectacular scene where Roberts only friends leave him, and the other TPs reflect on his situation in a truly poignant way. Excellent.
