    Radio times apparently talked to Rob and Doug (presumably separately) to get them to name their favourite episodes:

    Decent choices to be fair, think this pair know a thing or two

    So good they couldn’t wait until the end of Series V to watch it.

    The copy editor was clearly referring to a VHS tape when writing the caption.

    Weird how Rob just straightforwardly lists his 3 choices with a paragraph about each of them, while Doug does tons of hedging: first saying he loves whatever’s most current for him, then saying he loves all 74 episodes equally (Marooned and Krytie TV on the same level?), then giving 7 runners up, and then not even committing to just 3 choices, instead choosing 3 from Series 1-6 and 3 from Series 7+.

    I would have been interested to hear Doug either say that he thinks the partnered era had the overall best episodes, or that he thinks the solo era did, or even a mixture, but 3 from each is a bit of a cop out. I understand though.

    By the way Radio Times, they’re called “series”, and the episode is called “Timeslides”.

    I was only interested in knowing what Paul Alexander episode was Rob’s favourite, to be honest. Nice to see the show being in the news though.

    “Yeah, everything I’ve done since 1992 has been shit, really. The stuff I’m writing right now is crap, as well. I should have quit twenty years ago. Sorry, what was the question?”

    Maybe it’s just me, but it does seem to read as though he calls his Grant Naylor favorites his overall top three.

    But what are Rob’s favourite Doug-era episodes?

    Hey, if we can communicate that the Grant/Naylor era episodes are overall better than the solo Naylor era episodes without saying that the solo Naylor era is outright bad, then so can Doug.

    And he’s only declaring his top 3 anyway, not his top 36.

    I did consider putting Nanarchy instead for that reason but then thought nah, fuck it, Skipper is the better Holly comeback episode and better episode in general.

    I thought this was a football score for a minute.

    That’s the score from when Marlon Brando farted so badly he passed out, I think.
