How long does it take to send someone to sleep by talking about Doctor Who?

How long does it take to send someone to sleep by talking about Doctor Who?

Thanks to a very exhausting, stressful and generally chaotic December (I HATE DECEMBER! SO MUCH!) and my allegedly loud snoozing H & I pretty much sleep in and totally ignore the 7am wake-up call so we can get our skis etc. for the ski pass in Scheffau.

Instead we wake up in the afternoon, spend a leisurly afternoon exploring the (rainy and closed) town of Niederau before retiring back to the hotel for swimming, saunas and more snoozage.

This has the slight problem in that H & I don’t have enough energy for our main midnight snoozage. So in an attempt to bore her to sleep, I suggest that I recount every single Doctor Who story I can recount, in chronological broadcast order.

And somehow, I manage to spend 90 mins talking about Doctor Who, going from incarnation to incarnation briefly describing most major stories before I hear her snoozing at the beginning of Colin Baker (but didn’t we all…) Granted there was a lot of fudging about some baddie wanting to take over or destroy the world or universe, but it’s frightening for me to see how much I can recall. I could have used that memory space to remember Shakespeare, for goodness sake!

  • Andrew, get your ass outta bed, hire another snowboard and hit the slopes. You can snooze at home for gods sake!
