    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • When Za is injured you can see that his wounds criss-cross his entire chest, but in later scenes his wounds only go diagonally in one direction.

      • When Za is attempting to move the rock to enter the cave where everyone's being held, you can clearly see from the amount it's moving that it is nowhere near as heavy as they're portraying it.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • The Doctor: One minute ago we were trying desperately to get away from these savages.
        Ian: All right. Now we're helping them. You're a doctor, do something.
        The Doctor: I'm not a doctor of medicine.

      • Barbara [ to the Doctor ]: You treat everybody and everything as something less important than yourself.
        The Doctor: You're trying to say that everything you do is reasonable and everything I do is inhuman. While I'm afraid your judgement's at fault, Miss Wright, not mine.

      • The Doctor: You seem to have elected yourself leader of this little party.
        Ian: There isn't time to vote on it.
        The Doctor: Just as long as you understand that I won't follow your orders blindly.
        Ian: If there were only two of us, you could find your own way back to the ship.
        The Doctor: Aren't you a tiresome young man?
        Ian: And you're a stubborn old man.

      • Za [of the Doctor and his companions]: They have strange feet.
        Hur: They wear skins on their feet.
