Did You Know?


All the fake names that Nate reads off in the airport are of actors who have previously portrayed The Doctor in the British sci-fi series Doctor Who (1963). Nate's aliases are Peter Davison, Sylvester McCoy and Tom Baker all of whom portrayed The Doctor. Sophie's alias is Sarah Jane Baker, a reference to Sarah Jane Smith, one of The Doctor's companions (portrayed by Elisabeth Sladen). This is most likely due to the fake ID's being made by Hardison, who in an earlier episode remarks about 'torrenting' Doctor Who episodes. See more »


The team is clearly braking into GenoGrow at night, and the flight they are to catch leaves "in an hour" - yet it is clearly daytime when they arrive at the airport - an hour is not enough time to go from full night to full day See more »
