    • At the final war memorial scene, both the Doctor and Martha are seen wearing artificial red poppies. This is a mark of respect for all those who have fallen in war, although traditionally associated with the First World War. The poppy's significance to Remembrance Day is a result of John McCrae's poem 'In Flanders Fields' (1915). The poppy emblem was chosen because of the poppies that bloomed across some of the worst battlefields of Flanders in World War I, their red colour an appropriate symbol for the bloodshed of trench warfare. Artificial poppy wreaths are laid at cenotaphs and war memorials on Remembrance Day and Remembrance Sunday each November.
