FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Continuity: The opening of this episode differs slightly from the closing of the previous episode, notably a change in Zentos' line from "made to suffer" to "made to answer".

    • This is the first time the Doctor witnesses the destruction of Earth. He will witness it again (on an alternative Earth) in the 7th season serial, Inferno.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Steven: If your medical records are anything to go by, this segment of time, far from being one of the most advanced in knowledge, is one of the worst.
      Zentos: We can cope with all things known to the fifty-seventh segment of time, but not with strange diseases brought by you as agents of the intelligences that inhabit Refusis.
      Steven: You're still on about that? I told you before, we know nothing of that planet.
      Zentos: My instinct, every fibre of my being, tells me differently.
      Steven: That, unfortunately, tells me only one thing.
      Zentos: What is that?
      Steven: That the nature of man, even in this day and age, hasn't altered at all. You still fear the unknown like everyone else before you.
