  • Trivia

    • Equipment Visible: When Shirna does her little dance, the wire leading to the Miniscope is visible.

    • Factual Error: The calendar that the Doctor spots shows the date is Tuesday, June 4, 1926. The problem is that June 4, 1926 was a Friday.

    • Other Mistake: When Jo moves across the room to get the newspaper, the sound of a pen or pencil falling on the floor can be heard.

  • Quotes

    • The Doctor [ regarding the floor hatch ]: It slides open.
      Jo: How does it work?
      The Doctor: Anti-magnetic cohesion, I should think.
      Jo: Never heard of it.
      The Doctor: Well you wouldn't have done, Jo. You were born about a thousand years too early for that.
      Jo: Oh, I do love being with you, Doctor. You make me feel so young.

    • Jo: We're on Earth.
      The Doctor: That's impossible.
      Jo: Why can't you ever admit when you're wrong?
      The Doctor: Because that's impossible too.
