Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (6)

    • Plot Hole: How does Professor Marius clone the Doctor and Leela's clothes?

    • The proportions of the shrinking Doctor and Leela clones is way off. At the point where they are two feet tall, they are still visible from above the waist (the foot tall door sill blocks everything below the waist). Their legs would have to be about 6" tall relatively to their 1-1/2' bodies, torsos, and heads.

    • Plot Hole: Why doesn't Lowe simply shoot Leela the second her back is turned? Moreover, why does he take them to get medical help? It's made clear that the virus has everything it needs on Titan.

    • Continuity: When Marius injects the cloned Doctor and Leela into the real Doctor, the syringe is obviously just filled with air. But the next shot shows them in liquid.

    • Continuity: The opening shot of the Bi-Al Foundation shows damage from the shuttle that crashes into it later in the episode.

    • Crew Visible: In the very first scene, as the Doctor collapses to the ground, a person can be seen moving in the back of the set.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Leela [ of the cloning process ]: Can you explain?
      K-9: Affirmative. The Kilbracken holograph cloning technique replicates from a single cell a short-lived copy. Efficiency of individualisation not completely guaranteed.
      Leela: Can you explain simply?
      K-9: Negative.

    • Lowe: Destroy her! That's the reject!
      Leela: Reject yourself!

    • Reception Nurse: Patient's name?
      Leela: Ummm, just the Doctor.
      Reception Nurse: Place of origin.
      Leela: Gallifrey.
      Reception Nurse: Ireland?
      Leela: I imagine so.

    • Marius: He's very useful, he's my own personal database. He knows everything I know, don't you, K-9?
      K-9: Affirmative. And more… Master.

  • NOTES (2)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • The idea of miniaturizing and injecting people into a body to deal with a health problem is a reference to Asimov's "Fantastic Voyage".
