    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Continuity: When the cleaners attack the Doctor and he falls into the Red Kang's hideout, a shot of the second cleaner is clearly reversed. The rotating saw blade is on its right side instead of the left, as it is in the subsequent shot.

      • Continuity: The Doctor claims that the coins in Paradise Towers read "Issue by the Great Architect, Kroagnon". But a closeup shows they simple read "Issue By Kroagnon".

    • QUOTES (1)

      • The Doctor [ reading from the Caretaker manual ]: It says here about the 327 Appendix 3 Subsection 9 death, that after guarding the condemned prisoner for… [ checking watch> ] 35 minutes, you must all stand up.
        Deputy Chief: But if we…
        The Doctor: I mean, I know. It's extraordinary. I don't really expect you to do it. [ Taps book significantly ] But it is in there.
        (The Caretakers stand quickly.)
        The Doctor: The Caretakers present must then move five paces away from the prisoner…
        (The Caretakers move slowly away.)
        The Doctor: …Close their eyes and put their hands above their head.
        (The Caretakers do so; the Doctor sneaks up and steals the Deputy's key.)
        Deputy Chief: How long do we do this for?
        The Doctor: For about a minute and a half. You see, that's how long the prisoner needs.
        Deputy Chief: To do what?
        The Doctor: Find the keycard to the door and escape.
        Deputy Chief: Sorry?
        The Doctor: Find the keycard to the door and escape.
        (The Doctor opens the door and slips out.)
        Deputy Chief: Rules should always make sense. Why should we allow the prisoner…? [ realization dawns ]
