‘The Caretaker’ Review: Nothing Good Happens After 2 a.m.

caretaker1For reasons too long to be detailed right now, I did not manage to watch ‘The Caretaker’ until 2am last night and the notes I found this morning on my pillow merely said “Angry Doctor” and “eyebrows” multiple times, because no proper review can come out of watching an episode so late on a Saturday night.

So, as I have not had time to watch it again until half an hour ago and I am slightly tired and I still want to watch the Outlander mid-season finale, instead of writing a review of ‘The Caretaker’ tomorrow (way too late) I will just share my favourite lines from the episode. Enjoy my laziness!

Also, completely unrelated, give Gotham a chance. The pilot looks good enough (it is always impossible to predict success after just one episode) and it might have potential to become an outstanding show. We will see, but for now check it and see if you like it. And I only sang this song in my head for the first five minutes.

“I used to have a teacher exactly like you once”


-“Why have you got two jackets -is one of them faulty?”

-“Of course I can do deep cover!” “Where? The Magic Circle?”

-“Human beings have incredibly short life spans. Frankly, you should all be in a permanent state of panic.”

-“He’s fine, hypnotised, he thinks he’s got the ‘flu. Also a flying car and three wives. It’s going to be a rude awakening.”

-“So… there’s an alien, who used to look like Adrian. Then he turned into a Scottish caretaker.”

-“I lived among otters once for a month. Well, I sulked. River and I, we had this big fight…” “Human beings are not otters!” “Exactly, it’ll be even easier.”

-“How can you think I’m her dad when we both look exactly the same age?”

-“Oh, I suppose she was your bezzie mate, was she? And you went on holidays together and then you got kidnapped by Boggons from space and then you all formed a band and met Buddy Holly.” “No, I read the book. There’s a bio at the back.”

-“What about the handsome one with the bow tie?”

-“I’m not a PE teacher, I’m a maths teacher.” “Nope, sorry, no, I can’t retain that. I’ve tried, it’s just not going in.”

-“Can’t you read? It says, ‘Keep Out’.” “No, it says, ‘Go Away Humans’.” “Oh, so it does. Never lose your temper in the middle of a door sign.”

-“You’ve explained me to him. You haven’t explained him to me.”
