    • TRIVIA (5)

      • Revealing Mistake: After Wences slides down to rescue Susan Q, Sophie Aldred can be seen waiting for her cue to slide down after him.

      • Revealing Mistake: When Wences slides down the pipe with Ace, you can see where the made-up legs end and the actor's trousers begin.

      • Revealing Mistake: When the Doctor taps the stalactites, they sway a little.

      • Revealing Mistake: When the Doctor is speaking to the Kandyman, the Kandyman's microphone picks up and distorts his voice.

      • When Ace and Susan Q are sitting underneath the doompipe about to be executed by the fondant surprise, it's rather apparent that the actresses aren't sitting directly underneath the pipe but a little way behind it.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Helen A: Priscilla P was overpowered by a defenceless girl and a vermin. Is it a joke, Daisy K?
        Daisy K: No, ma'am.
        Helen A: Oh, what a shame. I enjoy a good joke.

      • Earl Sigma: You're a nice guy Doctor, but a little weird.
        The Doctor: Enough of the "little".

      • Ace: What now?
        Susan Q: Well, we just disappear, like the rest of them. Just another of Helen A's victims.
        Ace: I won't let it happen. We'll escape, I'll save you!
        Susan Q: Don't worry. I'm happy that it's finally over. It's funny that, isn't it? it's the first thing I've been happy about for ages.

      • Ace: It's all my fault. You'd be doing alright if you hadn't met me.
        Susan Q: It would have happened sooner or later. I'm not Helen A's idea of good Happiness Patrol material. She won't shed any tears over me. let's face it, no-one will. Even if they wanted to, they wouldn't be allowed!

      • Kandy Man: You see, I make sweets. Not just any old sweets, but sweets that are so good, so delicious that sometimes, if I'm on form, the human physiology is not equipped to bear the pleasure. Tell them what I'm trying to say, Gilbert.

        Gilbert M.: He makes sweets that kill people.
