  • Notes

    • Depending on interpretation, the Doctor's comment about humanity being "optional" to him can be regarded as confirming a popular fan hypothesis that the Eighth Doctor's controversial comment about being "half-human on his mother's side" (the 1996 movie) applied uniquely to that regeneration, rather than to the Doctor in general. It may also be a sly aside to the audience about that controversy, like the Daleks crying, "Do not blaspheme!" to Rose's comment about them being "half-human" from The Parting of the Ways.
