Tiling bathroom

Decided to change the bathroom suite & re-tile the bathroom.Problem is the walls have plasterboard on them,fixed with dot & dab.Removing the tiles has made a real mess, in fact half the plasterboard is missing.
Should I patch the platerboard up, with browning and skim or remove the lot and have it plastered...............this is one job I will not atempt myself.
I have a large family & its a real pain, the bathrooms like a bombsite, with just the toilet and the bath in, I intend fitting a shower cubicle.

    If it is really is half missing, then I would have the whole lot off. in the Shower area I would put battens on the wall and screw up Aqua panel to tile on to the rest of the room I would dot and dab plaster board up (its easy, especially in a small room that you are going to completely tile.) What I would not do is re-plaster the room if I was going to tile over it, there is no point.
