  • Trivia

    • What appears to be a goof was most likely the result of Jon Pertwee stealing another character's line. Sarah Jane was supposed to have told the Third Doctor he changed into all "teeth and curls." According to the DVD running commentary, Terrance Dicks claims that Pertwee liked the line so much he pilfered it for his own. The line appears to makes no sense when the Third Doctor says it, though, as it suggests foreknowledge of his future incarnation.
