    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (4)

      • During the scene in the TARDIS where The Doctor mistakenly calls out to the absent Susan, a shadow from the production crew appears over Ian's face.

      • Other Mistake: When Vicki is explaining the situation to Barbara, the sound of scenery being moved can be heard.

      • To preserve the surprise of Koquilion's identity, the part was credited to "Sydney Wilson" -- an amalgam of the names of series creators Sydney Newman and Donald Wilson.

      • At the very beginning, when the TARDIS door is open, you can see through it to the cave wall beyond.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Ian Chesterton: What's that nightmare?
        The Doctor: Isn't it sufficient that it is down there and we're up here?

      • The Doctor: I can't understand it. I just can't understand it. Violence is totally alien to people on this planet.
        Ian: Oh, well, people change, Doctor. New leader, different set of circumstances.
        The Doctor: No, no, no, my dear Chesterton, no. All the more reason for people on this planet to hate death and destruction.
