Trivia

The interaction between Ryan and the waitress was based off an actual event. While playing in the minors, baseball player Vic Power, a black man from Puerto Rico, entered a segregated restaurant in Florida and was told they by the waitress that they "didn't serve Negroes." Power responded "Good, I don't eat them!" See more »

Goofs

The final scene shows asteroid 284996 Rosaparks, which exists, as a jagged rock, sitting in a field of similar rocks.

However, asteroids we've seen have irregular but smoothed-down surfaces, unlike what was shown.

Also, asteroids are dispersed across a vast void. From any one asteroid, it is unlikely that any other asteroid would be visible as more than a point of light. The only exceptions are when a small asteroid is the 'moon' of a larger one. See more »

Quotes

Krasko: Blue box in the alley, is it a TARDIS?
The Doctor: Might be. What's it to you?
Krasko: Well, could be worth a lot.
The Doctor: Nah, not that one. Second hand, huge mileage, one careless owner!

The Doctor is back...
21 October 2018 | by KatefkndoesSee all my reviews

Honestly, ignore all of the bad reviews. This is the best episode of Doctor Who in years. And given recent events it is sadly very relevant to today's society.

Excellent work by all.
