  • Notes

    • Mark Gatiss plays the role of Gantok under heavy makeup, using the alias of "Rondo Haxton." The name is a tribute to Rondo Hatton, a 1930s-40s American actor who suffered from acromegaly, a deformity of the bones of the face. This gave him an appearance similar to Gantok's. The disfigurement brought Hatton to Hollywood where he played a series of roles as killer and freaks, including the Hoxton Creeper in the 1944 movie The Pearl of Death, hence the actor alias of "Rondo Haxton."
