Keen to place the Doctor and Craig's escapades in a mundane, everyday environment, Gareth Roberts considered settings such as a hospital, a police station and a supermarket before finally settling on a department store. See more »
24:30 minutes into the episode, the Doctor is holding the baby facing the camera and so is the baby. When suddenly going into close-up shot the baby is backwards facing away from the camera and we only see the back of his head. See more »
I was curious of some of the reviews of this ep. It's supposed to be funny, light, and... CHEAP. Since the finale (I presume) broke the bank - they needed something minimal - including personnel (I presume MS was working doubles there for a few weeks?). I don't get how others cant see a larger context.
It sets up certain things - including the sense of "goodbyes" . I'd like to see daddy, mum, baby again sometime --- but - doubt that (fine line between funny occasional eps - and farce). The 2 men and a baby is a bit silly - but again: budgets, schedule, etc. This one of necessity had to be written with a relatively simple concept - again dropping in various foreshadows.
