A scene was deleted that showed The Doctor, Donna and Lance cramming themselves into a rather small SMART car to get to H R Clemens. David Tennant's parents, his sister-in-law and his two nieces all appeared as extras in the background. However, none of them ended up in the finished episode. See more »
While the time-frame is set to be December in England, the trees in the background on the motorway chase are lush and green. See more »
I was left pondering over a number of technical issues with this episode since the Doctor explained early on in his first incarnation about the danger of the doors being open whilst the TARDIS is in flight.
Then there's the TARDIS scanner. The TARDIS has always had a scanner just as the TARDIS has always had a control in the centre control console to open the doors.
There was no explanation either for the arachnid since the Doctor dealt with the planet of the spiders before he regenerated to his fourth incarnation. These stories are too short and are failing to provide any background. For a franchise that is older than Star Trek, it's coming up short when filling in the gaps, crossing the t's and dotting the i's. Perhaps I'm taking it too seriously as it does entertain you for a spare 40 minutes or so providing you ignore Catherine Tate.
