    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Plot Hole: After Romana and the Doctor hide, the Captain enters, then bends down to inspect the door which conceals the Shrivenzale. Unfortunately, the actor turns to his right when he does so, which make it rather odd that he doesn't see the white-clad Time Lady standing right in front of him.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Romana: We can explain, surely.
        The Doctor: Oh, yes, we can explain. "Sorry, old thing, we're just helping ourselves to your Crown Jewels." They'd have our heads off before you could say "Rassilon's Rod."

      • The Doctor: Don't jump to conclusions about anyone or anything.
        Romana: Ah, I'll try and remember that.
        The Doctor: Good. And don't be sarcastic, either, that can also get you in trouble.

      • Romana: I do wish you'd stop treating me like a child, Doctor. I'm nearly 140, you know.
        The Doctor: Really? You're in wonderful condition.
        Romana: Thank you.

      • Romana: I do wish you'd explain what's happening, Doctor,
        The Doctor: You've got all the facts: study them.
        Romana: Oh, that's very helpful.
        The Doctor: Oh, it's a good mental exercise. An academy graduate doesn't need things explained, surely?
        Romana: I will not give way to feelings of psycho-fugal hostility.
        The Doctor: What?
        Romana: We have a negative empathy, Doctor.
        The Doctor: Splendid. Let's go.

      • Romana: You mean you didn't believe his story?
        The Doctor: No.
        Romana: But he had such an honest face.
        The Doctor: Romana, you can't be a successful crook with a dishonest face, can you?
