Maybe the Doctor saved him from ever actually having to endure the wretched stench of these headphones but, in the process, he may have accidentally forgotten to completely clear the timeline. We may be all caught in a paradox of sorts where this never actually happened even though this record still remains. Maybe the stench on the headphones is something else, a sort of Krypton, that the Doctor could not endure. It may have killed him before he was able to finish his job.
Crap. This stuff must be potent. Double crap. Who now will keep all that wibbly, wobbly, timey, wimey ball of stuff in order?
