Mine is the last fart that you will ever hear. Do not be alarmed.

Sue isn’t impressed with the resolution to last week’s cliffhanger(s).

World War ThreeSue: It’s a bit of a cop-out, don’t you think? Suddenly, the electricity isn’t as dangerous to the Doctor as we were led to believe, and now he’s put all the aliens out of action. Somehow. Don’t ask me how. Anyway, it’s a massive design flaw. That’s like ...

Farter’s Day…

aliens1The Powell Estate, London.

Me: The estate was named after Jonathan Powell, the **** who cancelled Doctor Who.

Sue: And what’s wrong with having a housing estate named after you? Didn’t Nelson Mandela have some flats named after him? I would have been flattered.

The Doctor has brought Rose home.

Sue: So the Doctor can steer the TARDIS, then. I wish this programme would make its bloody mind up.

While Rose rushes off to ...

The Unquiet DeadIn a Victorian funeral parlour in Wales…

Sue: The BBC are really good when it comes to period dramas like this. I feel like I’m in safe hands this week.

Suddenly, a corpse wraps its gnarled fingers around an undertaker’s neck, and Sue nearly jumps out of her skin.

Sue: Not for kids! Bloody hell! That gave me a fright! Jesus!

The corpse smashes its coffin to ...

And Sue feels fine…

The End of the WorldSue: Are you going to moan all the way through this episode as well, Neil?

Me: I’ll try not to. Although I was in a terrible mood the first time I saw this because Christopher Eccleston had just quit the show and I thought the sky was caving in.

Sue: Little did you know they were about to cast the best Doctor Who ever, eh?

Me: (Weeping) No ...

Plastic Fantastic Lover…

RoseSue: I love this version of the theme music.

Me: Yeah, nothing encapsulates the mystery and otherworldliness of Doctor Who like a brass ****ing band.

Sue: Don’t be daft, Neil. It’s meaty. It’s music that says: “Come on! Let’s have an adventure!”

Me: I had a trumpet when I was at school, and yet I never tried to play the Doctor Who theme on it.

Sue: Why not?

Me: Because it was a trumpet.

Sue: Oh, ...

It ain’t over yeti…

Episode 1

I drop the first bombshell less than thirty seconds into the episode.

Sue: What do you mean, I’ve seen this episode before? What are you trying to do to me, Neil? A divorce won’t be good for the book. You do know that, don’t you?

I offer to let her watch the first episode in silence, just like we did with The Enemy of the World Episode 3. She agrees. And then she won’t shut up.

Sue: This ...

Sue agrees to give this rediscovered story wan more chonce…

Sue: It’s almost as if they were waiting for our book to go to print before they announced it!

That was Sue’s reaction to the news that an undisclosed number of missing episodes of Doctor Who had miraculously turned up out of the blue. It was incredible. No one had suspected a thing.

Sue: Neil? Why are you crying? Neil? Are you all right?

This cannot be how it ends…

The TV MovieThe TV Movie was the first brand new Doctor Who I ever watched with Sue, and she never missed another episode from that point on. So it seems appropriate to finish where we started, all those years ago. We have, of course, drezzzzed for the occasion. She’s wearing her Pip and Jane T-shirt and I’m wearing a bath robe with the collar turned up.

Sue: Before ...
