  • Quotes

    • Stevens: Shall I terminate him? (in reference to the Doctor)

    • Guard: Well, well, well. Bit old to play games, ain't we?
      The Doctor: I'm quite spry for my age, actually.

    • The Doctor: I've been wanting to meet you for a long time. Your paper on DNA synthesis was quite remarkable for your age.
      Professor Jones: A promising youngster, huh?
      The Doctor: No, no, no. I mean for the age that you live in.

    • The Doctor: Venusian aikido, gentlemen. I do hope I haven't hurt you!

  • Notes

    • The title sequence film over which the closing credits were superimposed for this episode (and Episodes Five and Six) was played backwards and upside-down, a result of the film being played backwards through the projector in order to save time during recording.
