Trivia

John Nathan-Turner and Peter Grimwade wanted The Doctor to yell as he fell from the gantry. Tom Baker felt this was unheroic and refused. 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: I envy you your TARDIS, Master.
The Master: Excellent, Doctor. Envy's the beginning of all true greatness.
