Five times...?

In browsing Doctor Who fanfiction, I've noticed a recurring trend in the titles--the "five times" (and often "the one" in parentheses) title. True examples:

Five Times the Doctor Reduced Things to Science (and One Time He Didn’t)
Five Times Rose Tyler Didn’t Master the Art of Mascara Application
Five Times The Master Tried To Get The Doctor Drunk (And One Time He Didn't Have To)

What is the deal? Where is this from?

Incidentally, we're five or six episodes into Season 3 now. I like Martha quite well, and kind of want to shove Ten to make him notice how lucky he is to have such a smart, reliable, pretty companion instead of still moping over Rose. (Who I also still like, but really, poor Martha deserves a bit more attention.)

The Shakespeare episode was one of my favorites so far. The Harry Potter references! Hee. Not many shows could combine Shakespeare and HP and actually pull it off.

Another great moment was the basket of kittens (a.k.a. "the kids") in "Gridlock." Simple comedy cracks me up sometimes.
