** Frobisher's humanoid form in his Eighth Doctor reappearance is based on James Gandolfini.
** In the Twelfth Doctor strips, Jess Collins was based on actress Mélissa Azombo, a big ''Series/DoctorWho'' fan who jumped at the chance to be in the comic, even doing a photo shoot as reference for artist David A. Roach.
