Running Through Corridors, Volume 1, The 60s: Rob and Toby's Marathon Watch of Doctor Who

Creator: Robert Shearman, Toby Hadoke | 2010-12-14

Publisher: Mad Norwegian Pr

About this book
In Running Through Corridors, two Doctor Who lovers of old - Robert Shearman and Toby Hadoke - embark on an epic quest of friendship: spend the 'gap year' of 2009 (when Doctor Who consisted of a handful of specials rather than a full season) re-watching the whole of Who two episodes a day, every day, from the show's start in 1963 and ending with David Tennant's swan song on New Year's, 2010. This three-volume series contains Shearman and Hadoke's diary of that experience - a grand opus of their wry observations about the show, their desire to see the good in every story, and their chronicle of the real-life changes to Who in that year. With this book, Who fans will feel that they're watching along with Shearman (World Fantasy Award winner, Hugo Award nominee and writer on the new Doctor Who) and Hadoke (renowned stage performer for his one-man comedy show, 'Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf') as they make their 'grand journey' through the world's most wonderful and longest-running drama series.

    I love it!

    My new favorite watch. I had been wanting something with tritium for a while, but most are out of my price range. This one has the minor disadvantage of needing to be wound up regularly, which gets interesting since I often forget to do so - but I'm getting better at it. One of the chores of switching from a battery lifestyle to a manual watch. So far mine has kept excellent time(it's no atomic timepiece, but it doesn't seem to loose more than a minute or 2 a week from what I've seen of mine). It was much smaller than I expected, much smaller than my other watches. Perhaps a side effect of that was that the strap was incredibly short - I could barely get it on in the last hole! So that got swapped out very quickly for a NATO-style strap which was about an inch longer. It can be hard to find straps small enough for this watch, most common straps are 18mm or 21mm or whatever, while this watch uses a very small 16mm strap - not many options of the "tactical" variety, and I could find... 5/5 John Rollins Jr (Portland, OR United States) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Excellent Watch

    0 5/5 Randoodle - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: MARATHON Men's Diver's Automatic Black Dial Watch WW194006 (Watch) I've been eyeing this watch for a little bit now. I finally ponied up the $$ for it. It is a little smaller than I'm used to but I've already gotten acclimated to the size. A very heavy watch with excellent build quality. I work in an aerospace machine shop so I know about high quality and tight tolerances. This watch has both. It is definitely an understated watch that will only catch the eye of like minded individuals who value the same type of watch. It is definitely expensive but I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I also bought the stainless steel bracelet and swapped out the rubber straps. Not necessary but I prefer it and think it changes the presence of the watch. I like it a lot and can see why these watches are so coveted. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 4, 2012

    Outstanding!!!

    I absolutely love this watch. Ive owned a Seiko Black Monster for the past few years and it's performed flawlessly. I had been looking for a new watch to take with me to BUD/s (SEAL training) in January seeing that my Seiko has sentimental value and I don't want to risk it being destroyed. I knew I wanted another stainless automatic and had originally been looking at other Seikos. I came across this watch reading posts on a forum for divers that was written by a man who was former Army SF and 21d qualified. He said he had owned this watch for a few years and had taken it on multiple deployments without fail. He also mentioned that it had allegedly survived multiple fire fights, dive ops and a few messy jumps. The ETA 2824-2 mvmt is extremely accurate and is only losing a few seconds a day.

    Great Watch

    0 5/5 Recon7 - See all my reviews This review is from: MARATHON Men's Diver's Automatic Black Dial Watch WW194006 (Watch) This is a great watch I have had mine since 2006 and it has been on numerous deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan. Well worth the money. Every 5 years it is recommended to send it back to Marathon so they can relube the movements and buff out any scratches or what not. I had to replaced the rubber band only twice since 2006. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 6, 2013

    0 1/5 marcel1444 - See all my reviews This review is from: MARATHON Men's Diver's Quartz Black Dial Watch WW194007 (Watch) I ordered one from their site in November. When the watch arrived the numeral seven tritium did not illuminate. I had to call them and three days later they mailed me a return label. They said that as soon as they received it they would send me another. Almost two weeks later I received the new watch which had deep nick marks on the case. Again I had to call them to get return labels. Well I had it with them and sent them an e-mail and photos of the watch that they were trying to pass off as new. I contacted Paypal who opened up a formal complaint and they got the refund from the dishonest company.

    Good value for a basic GPS watch

    I've been running recreationally for four years, three to four times a week, usually with one long run on Sundays. I bought this watch two weeks ago because I wanted a cheap, simple, waterproof GPS watch that shows current running speed.For those of you new to GPS watches, you should know that GPS watches don't give you an instant pace, but an "average" current pace over some number of seconds. During my first run, I did a little experiment to see how fast this watch picks up the change in speed. At warm-up, watch was showing 6.1min/km. I sped up to the pace I know from experience was about 5 min/km. Initially nothing happened. After 20-30 seconds, pace changed to 5.8, then after another 10-15 seconds to 5.6, and it kept going down. It took around a minute to go down to 5.1min/km.It is fairly simple to use: you press the GPS button, wait 30 seconds to pick up the signal, click "Mode" few times till you find "Run", and press "Start".

    Works well if you're okay with its limitations

    I purchased this GPS watch to help my training for an upcoming 10K. I was looking for a watch that could tell me my current pace, because I was trying to maintain a 7.5min/mile pace for my training. The watch fit well and is a little bulky, but that is to be expected. The GPS took about 30 seconds to fix, and that was after I found a clearing where there was no tree branch overhang. I usually start my runs with a short walk followed by a slow jog for a quarter mile where I will then stop and strech for a bit before I start the bulk of my run. I did not stop the timer because I was more interested in the distance I covered and my current pace, so I didn't care that the timer was still moving (Starting a timed run is how the process works. You start the timer with the GPS active and it measures distance, pace, and time elapsed).

    Simple GPS Watch

    This is my 3rd GPS watch. The first 2 were Garmin and Motorola. Garmin was getting old and could not get satellite fix reliably, while the Motorola was full featured but recently it has been recording my runs as multisport much to my annoyance. I switched to this watch thinking less features may mean less possible points of failure.I like the simplicity of this watch. While on the run, tells you your time, distance covered and (almost) current pace. There are options to view other data but usually the default is good enough for me. After your run, you will then be able to see a whole load of other data points such as average pace and lap times. The waterproofing gives me peace of mind when the weather gets wet.The bulk is not too bad really, it's not much bigger than most GPS watches out there. It looks and feels so regular that I wear even when I am not running.I wish I could upload my runs to track them. Right now I just have to record my times... 4/5 Wee Meng Low "Meng" (Asia) - See all my reviews, December 2, 2012

    OUTSTANDING accuracy! (Just protect the crystal)

    Got one around 2007, I'm still wearing it as I type this. I think I've put maybe two or three batteries in it, but battery replacement's a breeze. It has a pliable battery cover, so no need for spanner wrenches, jackhammers & air compressor to open the case. The accuracy is uncanny, especially for an analog watch. I've synchronized it with GPS, stratum 1 clocks, etc and I've never seen it off more than a second with a good battery. I understand they have a Swiss movement, which would go a long way to explain the performance. Also search for other marathon watches, they get extremely high marks, and for good reason.The tritium's still bright after 5 years, the crown's worn down but the case held up perfectly. No leaks or failures of any kind, just an occasional battery. If it ever dies or it's lost, it gets a state funeral. And I immediately run out & get another Marathon watch.

    Can't trust this watch.

    I've had this watch for a couple of years, but wore it sparingly during that time.I liked its smaller size - personally I think most men's watches these days are on the large side, easily caught on various things when you're working. And it's very lightweight, comfortable on the arm. The dial is easy to read in all lighting conditions and the tritium light tubes very bright compared to some other watches I've had. The included band is just barely big enough for my wrist but that was OK with me.That's the good; now the bad. Worst is the plastic watch "crystal" which is *very* easily scratched and, due to its shape, simply not replaceable by anything more durable. I'll get back to this in a minute. Also, the quality of assembly is lacking. After a few weeks of wear, I found two of the tritium light tubes floating around inside the watch face. I took it to two local watch repair shops - both said they wouldn't touch it. I wrote to Marathon and they... 2/5 Bryan Lockwood (Redmond, WA, USA) - See all my reviews, January 2, 2014

    I have been wearing a Luminox "navy seal" watch with stainless body and black rubber band for about ten years and the brightness has faded a little.

    0 5/5 concept3 (Mclean, Virginia) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: MARATHON Men's Navigator Date Black Watch WW194013 (Watch) If you buy this watch, you probably know what you're getting yourself into. Marathon is not a brand one "stumbles upon". The watch itself is packaged in a small cardboard box, which I enjoyed. The tritium lighting is as expected, not SuperLuminova bright, but lasting. The 12 o'clock marker has an orange tube while the rest are green, a nice touch I think.I was not expecting to have to cut the nylon to size, but I greatly enjoyed the process using a soldering iron, a flame, and sandpaper to get it as smooth as possible. The watch seems very durable so far, and I expect to continue buying from this company as the tritium wears out.Edit:Be very careful opening the caseback if you're curious to see inside it. I snapped the movement spacer and the case knife cut quite a bit into the "fibreshell". Worth the risk to me as a hobbyist, but might not be for you. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 10, 2012

    Tough Watch

    0 4/5 lokmup2 - See all my reviews This review is from: MARATHON Men's Navigator Pilot's Black Watch WW194001 (Watch) I received this watch while fighting in Iraq in 2004, it is now 2013 and I have not even replaced the battery yet. I still use this watch in law enforcement. This product has been around the world many times and I have countlessly adjusted the time to where I was stationed at, and the gears are as solid as the day I was issued it; the large, sturdy band is a big plus to, I am 6'2", 250 lbs and this band will go over my cold weather clothing. It gets four stars only because this model does not have the date. Cannot go wrong with this product. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 4, 2013

    Big, chunky watch built like a tank

    If you like true military watches with some heft to them you will like this. It is definitely bold, without being "fake garish" like some of the large watches I've seen out there. This will fit under MOST dress shirt sleeves, but many are a bit snug. I was able to get this during a small window for two hundred less than it normally runs. These are true Search and Rescue watches as supplied to multiple militaries and agencies. There are smaller versions, so make sure you get the one you like. My main goal with a watch is primarily for function...I want to be able to get it wet and still have it work, and endure some abuse. This one fits the bill. I have since added a stainless band (22mm SUPER Engineer Type II Solid Stainless Steel Straight End Watch Band-Push Button) and it definitely dressed it up a bit and matches in size and build, but I still like a Zulu on it as well. I have not really tried the rubber strap that came with it. The MaraGlow inserts work well and glow bright for... 5/5 Greg W "Greg W" (Baltimore, MD) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Marathon JSAR

    4 out of 5 rating due to MY personal opinion/preference - original strap is thin for the type and size watch, although very comfortable. Ordered an ISOfrane strap (thicker) as a replacement. This watch is one of those things you need to physically hold in your hand, use, and wear to genuinely appreciate it for what it is. Build quality and attention to detail is good. MaraGlo lume works well. Seems a few of the markers have a thinner application of maraglo vs the remaining markers. Besides this and the thin strap, its a really nice watch. I did end up ordering a second JSAR due to the maraglo lume issue. The second JSAR had some play in the bezel, both vertical and counter clockwise. I ended up returning the second and keeping the first JSAR. Excellent customer service from Amazon. The watch works, Im just a stickler for attention to detail. The second hand falls centered close to or on most of the markers, its a quartz watch.A common concern addressed is the... 4/5 JLee - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Awesome Watch

    0 5/5 KEVIN MCCLATCHEY - See all my reviews This review is from: MARATHON Men's Chronograph Pilot's Automatic Black Dial Watch WW194014 (Watch) This watch is huge! Ultra tough construction but very stylish. I've been wearing it for a month and it keeps time great. The automatic winding feature works well, you can hear and feel it work. I stopped wearing it for two days to check the winding and time keeping and discovered no problem. It has a work horse swiss movement. Do some research and you'll find some aspects of the movement that were used to make it "inexpensive" are actually now considered improvements over much more expensive movements. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 2, 2014
