    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Factual Error: Erato spinning a shell of aluminium around the neutron star would have no affect on its gravity, other than to increase it slightly.

      • The TARDIS landed on Chloris in Part One in response to Erato's distress signal and in this episode it materialises in the path of the neutron star to deflect it. Clearly the production team hadn't thought this 'randomised journeys' idea through...

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Romana: Doctor, I'm sure there's some terrible danger.
        Organon: Danger?
        The Doctor: Yes.
        Romana: And Erato wants to be out of the pit and free to escape in his craft before something dreadful happens.
        The Doctor: Yes.
        Romana: But Doctor, you've played right into his hands. You've let him go.
        The Doctor: Yes.
        Romana: Well can't you say anything but 'yes' the whole time?
        The Doctor: Yes! After he's told us whatever it is.
        Romana: Yes.
        The Doctor: And before he reaches his space vehicle to escape.
        Romana: Yes.
        The Doctor [ holding out a piece of shell ]: Do remind me to give him back his photon drive? Yes?
        Romana: Yes.

      • Adrasta: Huntsman, set the wolfweeds on the Doctor!
        The Doctor: No, wait, that's all you've got on this planet, isn't it? Weeds, weeds, forests and weeds!

      • Orato: I still say it was impossible.
        Romana: So do I. Though I did calculate our chances at 74,384,338 against.
        The Doctor: What? 74,384,338? Why that's extraordinary!
        Romana: Why?
        The Doctor: Well, that's my lucky number!

    • NOTES (1)

      • The Tythonian neutron star 'doomsday weapon' was suggested by a scientist consulted by writer David Fisher, in search of an original and plausible plot device.
