Trivia

Tom Baker was unhappy with the fact that the final image that viewers would see of his Doctor would be of him lying prone, being photographed from above. See more »

Goofs

As the Doctor and Master struggle on the gantry, the Doctor's scarf snags on the structure, and, as the Master breaks away and returns to the cabin, it falls to the decking, some distance from the now prone Doctor, who continues to crawl on. In the next shot, showing the view from the cabin-end of the structure, with the Doctor crawling away, he is suddenly wearing the scarf again. See more »

Quotes

The Doctor: Still, while there's life, there's six of one, half dozen of the other.
The Master: Woolly thinking, Doctor.
The Doctor: Yes, but very comforting when worn next to the skin.
