    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (5)

      • Revealing Mistake: During the scene where the Doctor and his friends are hiding behind the table and Sin is shooting it, a pyrotechnic wire can be seen dangling from the bottom of the table.

      • Revealing Mistake: When the Doctor smashes the crystal key on the ground, the deactivated Mr. Sin flinches.

      • Revealing Mistake: At various points in the serial, Mr. Sin is obviously a dummy and not an actor. The most obvious is during the last fight when Sin jumps the Doctor. After a struggle, cut to a forward angle and the Doctor grabs and throws an obvious dummy to the ground.

      • Continuity Leela is placed in the distillation chamber near the end. The Doctor uses an axe to destroy the control. Later on, he shoves Greel into the machine, which sparks and smokes and then works like normal.

      • You can see a boom mike shadow on the curtains during the final fight.

      • The Doctor: There's a one-eyed yellow idol to the north of Khatmandu...
        The Doctor is quoting from The Green Eye of the Yellow God by J. Milton Hayes. The attribution to music hall comedian Harry Champion is incorrect, but no doubt deliberately so on the part of the writer.
