Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • The Gorgons were first mentioned in the Torchwood episode Random Shoes by the ghost of Eugene Jones "That's pre-Gorgon Pilurian currency. I had them authenticated.".
      Leading to the speculation that the Gorgon homeworld, unnamed in this episode, is called Piluria.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Clyde: Listen Luke, when weirdo nuns turns up on your doorstep asking about freaky glowing alien gizmo's, one thing you never do... is tell them you've got one.

    • Sarah Jane: So, no obvious reason for the home to be haunted by a nun, then?
      Mr. Smith: I assume that by haunting you mean the projection of energies imprinted on psychic assimilating matter?
      Sarah Jane: Obviously.
      Clyde: Come again?
      Sarah Jane: Events get recorded on their surroundings, then under certain circumstances they get played back.

    • Bea: You're the boy in the window.
      Luke: My name's Luke, we were visiting Mrs. Randall. She says this place is haunted by a nun, have you seen her?
      Bea: Yes I have, and she's no ghost. There's something different about you, oh don't be afraid it's all right I've seen alie..ahh, unusual people before. Perhaps you can help me.

  • NOTES (2)

  • ALLUSIONS (4)

    • Mrs Randall: Especially the Gorgon, I saw that years ago at the flicks, with Christopher Lee and ahh, Barbara Shelley.

      Mrs Randall is referring to the 1965 Hammer horror film Gorgon which did star Christopher Lee and Barbara Shelley, but also Peter Cushing, the actor who would later play Doctor Who in Dr. Who and the Daleks & Daleks - Invasion Earth 2150 AD.

    • Bea: He used to say the Sontarans were the silliest looking race in the galaxy.
      Sarah Jane: No, what did you say?

      The Sontarans are a militaristic race who are engaged in a millennia long war with the Rutans, in appearance they are squat with a hairless dome shaped head and mottled brown skin. They first appeared in the Doctor Who episode The Time Warrior which also saw the debut of Sarah Jane Smith which may aid in explaining Sarah Jane's obvious confusion and joy at Bea's statement.

    • Sister Helena: I'd shut up if I were you, or the Abbess might show you her idea of solving a problem like Maria.

      A somewhat predictable reference to The Sound of Music the Twentieth Century Fox blockbuster staring Julie Andrews in the role of Maria, a rebellious nun. One of the songs sung by the nuns is 'Maria' which includes the lyric How do you solve a problem like Maria?

    • Clyde: By the time I'm 40 I can get my brain put in a robot and live forever.

      This idea of immortality through robotics is very reminiscent of the updated Cybermen's method of upgrading humanity to rid them of disease, ageing and death.
