Trivia

This is the first regeneration story to credit both the departing and succeeding actors playing the role of the Doctor. Patrick Troughton and Tom Baker were not credited for their appearances in The Tenth Planet and Planet of the Spiders respectively, while Jon Pertwee did not appear at all in The War Games. This also happened at the end credits of The Caves of Androzani, The Parting of the Ways, The End of Time, The Night of the Doctor and The Time of the Doctor. In both of the first two instances, Peter Davison received second billing. 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.

Crazy Credits

Due to the regeneration, Tom Baker's image is removed from the credits sequence by repeating the periphery of the background to the center of the frame. This effect is continued until halfway through the last cast credit. See more »
