  • Trivia

    • Plot Hole: When the Doctor is first asked to assemble Jamie's face, Frasier Hines features are not among those on the board.

    • Jamie's voice changes to that of Hamish Wilson (along with his accent) well before the Doctor reassembles his face incorrectly.

    • Why does Zoe need help to break through the paper top of the jar she's trapped in?

    • The story element in which the Doctor must reconstruct Jamie's face was put in place because Frazer Hines caught chickenpox and couldn't appear. Of course, the Doctor's incorrect solution doesn't just change Jamie's face, it changes his accent as well!

      Contrary to popular belief, Hamish Wilson, who was cast as the altered Jamie, is not related to Hines.
