2 skins of plasterboard without plaster will be fine then. The top architrave/facing will cover the join between door frame and plasterboard. Just fill the drywallscrew holes with easifil and sand. Bit of scrim/papertape on the vertical joints and easifill and sand.

Ok great cheers. I suppose another option is to get some 9.5mm board then it leaves me with just under 3mm each side for skim.

Quick question with the ceiling batton it's being fixed to plasterboard. Is it just a case of using strong plasterboard fixings if I can't fix to a joist? ?

if You make a little frame up that’s a nice snug fit then if it’s vertically fixed well to each wall then that’ll be fine if you can’t get a fixing into a ceiling joist.
And yes using 9mm plasterboard will allow for a skim coat if you want to plaster.

It's brick either side and crumbling plaster on right wall in that pic. very difficult to get a good fixing, but used an sds 8mm plugs and long screws. It isn't moving

Squirt a bit expanding foam in the gaps and they’ll cover no bother with some scrim and plaster.

Sort of, I bought some £13 secateurs too, I didn't realise until after the chap had discounted them to 1.50 and charged me full price for the plasterboard lol result!

Would be happier to contibute towards charity instead if they done that!
