    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (6)

      • Continuity: When Ace grabs the ATR from the dead soldiers, it can be seen that the scorch mark created when she destroyed the Dalek earlier has now vanished.

      • Factual Error: The TV announces that the time is 5.15 on November 23. In London, it would be dark at that time of year.

      • Continuity: When the headmaster pursues Mike, the cemetery gates are open. When he attacks him, they are suddenly closed.

      • Anachronisms: Modern buildings and cars are seen in the cemetery, when the headmaster attacks Mike.

      • Continuity: The Doctor receives the bat from the Hand of Omega and transfer it to his left hand. Reverse camera angle and he's holding it in his right.

      • When Ace pulls the Doctor through the cellar doorway at the beginning of the episode and locks the door, the dome of the Dalek is visible at the top of the stairs. There's a good minute or two of dialogue between the Doctor and Ace before the Dalek decides to blow the door off with its weapon.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Imperial Dalek: Small human female detected on third level.
        Ace: Who are you calling small?

      • Blind Vicar: Your voice seems to have changed since the last time we met.
        The Doctor: It has changed. Several times, in fact.

      • The Doctor: That spaceship up there has surveillance equipment capable of spotting a sparrow fall at 15,000 kilometres. Any sign of a military build-up, and they may simply decide to sterilize the area.
        Gilmore: And we have no defence.
        The Doctor: Frightening, isn't it? To find that there are others better versed at death than human beings?

      • John: Sugar?
        The Doctor: Ah. A decision. Would it make any difference?
        John: It would make your tea sweet.
        The Doctor: Yes, but beyond the confines of my taste buds, would it make any difference?
        John: Not really.
        The Doctor: But…
        John: Yeah?
        The Doctor: What if I could control people's taste buds? What if I decided that no one would take sugar? That'd make a difference, to those who sell the sugar, and those who cut the cane.
        John: My father, he was a cane cutter!
        The Doctor: Exactly. Now if no one had used sugar, your father wouldn't have been a cane cutter.
        John: If this sugar thing had never started, my great-grandfather wouldn't have been kidnapped, chained up and sold in Kingston in the first place! I'd be a African!
        The Doctor: See? Every great decision creates ripples — like a huge boulder dropped in a lake. The ripples merge, rebound off the banks in unforeseeable ways. The heavier the decision, the larger the waves, the more uncertain the consequences.
        John: Life's like that. Best thing is just to get on with it.

    • NOTES (5)

      • When the Doctor is arguing with Ace at Mike's house, papers can be seen stuffed in his pockets. According to Sylvster McCoy, this is the script.

      • The sequence where Ace receives the Dalek transmissions on her ghetto blaster is partially displayed in slow motion so that the video would match the Dalek voices when they were added. The audio track was running longer than the video.

      • The In-Vision magazine issue devoted to this episode features a rather clever piece of cross-over fiction. Sam Beckett from Quantum Leap leaps into the body of John just in time to help the Doctor, who has come into the café with the heavy burden of what he knows he must do.

      • The Doctor claims the device he rigs up to stop the Daleks before they can exterminate Ace is based on one he rigged up before on Spiridon. This is a reference to the one the Third Doctor made from a sort of tape recorder in Planet Of The Daleks.

      • Ace leaves a sitting room at 5.15 just as a television announcer introduces the first episode of a new science fiction serial entitled "Doc—". A calendar in Ratcliffe's office confirms that these episodes are set in November 1963.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The First Doctor: The man at the funeral home claims the casket was left by an "old geezer with white hair", a reference to the first Doctor.
