174: No More Petes, Just Howard (The Christmas Invasion)

Everybody loves Howard, the new show from the BBC.

As it turns out, the best day to invade Earth is Christmas Day, 2006, when it just so happened the Doctor was totally out of commission. If the Sycorax had just showed up like 4 hours earlier they probably would have totally succeeded. It’s The Christmas Invasion, written by Russell T. Davies, and aired on December 25, 2005.


10:06 Might as well link this again.
11:25 They’re actually called Roboforms and the Doctor says they behave like pilot fish.
12:40 Yeah, dogs can get hairballs. So wolves probably can too.
14:51 Apparently some people take shark cartilage as a supplement.
19:02 Whiplash from Iron Man 2. He’s not original to the movie obviously. He was created for comics.
22:42 I honestly don’t know if I believe this site or not, but according to it about 34% of people have A+ blood. That means A+ is the second most common blood type after O+. No idea about the royal family, but I did find out they’re Rh negative, which means they don’t have the Rh factor, whatever that is.
26:48 Yeah I am just making that up.
40:23 Controls emotions.
40:55 Immortal jellyfish, aka turritopsis dohrnii. This thing is creepy.
47:34 In regards to sexism in politics, the first episode of Revisionist History does a good job of summing it up. Here’s a Huffington Post article about it.
49:12 Song for 10. I think this is the version heard in this episode.
52:58 Thanks Radio Times.
