    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Continuity: The cake that Mel is eating vanishes when Pex bursts through the door. She puts the plate on the table, but it is empty in the next shot.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Tilda [ to Pex ]: I do wish you would stop breaking through our door to try and save us.
        Tabby: That's the third time we've had it repaired. And it's not as though we've ever been in any trouble.
        Tilda: Apart from bits of door flying about all over the place.

    • NOTES (2)

      • Video: Doctor Who: Paradise Towers (BBCV 5686) released in October 1995. Released in U.S.A./Canada (Warner Home Video E1379) in June 1997.

      • Novelisation: Doctor Who - Paradise Towers by Stephen Wyatt (ISBN 0 426 20330 5) first published by W H Allen in 1988.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Some have suggested a political allegory - the Blue Kangs beat the Reds in a pointless game, the Yellows never really being contenders, these being the colours of the UK's main political parties, Conservative, Labour and Liberal respectively.
