Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • It's unclear why those at the trial see this story in the form of a "whodunnit" when the Tardis is recording everything in the vicinity. We see events that happen without the Doctor or Mel present, so why not see the killer preparing to strike?

    • Continuity: In Part Nine, the TARDIS lands with its front edge right on a yellow stripe in the cargo hold. At the conclusion of this episode, it is at an angle.

    • Plot Hole: Why would Professor Lasky and her colleague create servant creatures with lethal stings in their hands?

    • Revealing Mistake: When the vervoids are dying, it can be seen that one of them is wearing tracksuit trousers (with a visible drawstring) to which leaves have been pasted.

  • QUOTES (0)

  • NOTES (1)

    • More Time Lord double-standards: Article 7 of Gallifreyan Law forbids genocide - which the Time Lords arguably commit, or try to contrive, on several occasions over the course of the series, most notably the Daleks and the Fendahl.
