* Justin Chatwin's redeeming himself for ''Film/DragonballEvolution''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Chatwin will be making a guest appearance in the upcoming Christmas special "The Return of Doctor Mysterio" as Grant/The Ghost; in America at least, the guy's most well-known role is as Goku in the disastrous 2009 live-action film adaptation of ''Manga/DragonBall''. Thus, when people heard that he would be appearing in the ''Doctor Who'' Christmas special and ended up being impressed by the previews, they immediately started joking that this is Chatwin's way of apologizing for his involvement in ''Dragonball Evolution''.[[/labelnote]]

* Ceruleans are dirty plant-touchers. [[labelnote:Explanation]]On Gallifrey, the ruling Time Lords are divided into several "chapters". Three of these chapters were established in Classic Who, while three more were added in the novels. In particular, there was very little information given about the Ceruleans. When the author was asked what they actually did, he replied that he had imagined they were kind of like the Green Party in British politics. Since Time Lords rarely go outside, and those who

When the author was asked what they actually did, he replied that he had imagined they were kind of like the Green Party in British politics. Since Time Lords rarely go outside, and those whowho do are those who leave to go out into the wild and abandon the Time Lord society, this quickly developed into a perception that Ceruleans are tree-hugging plant-lovers in a society with an aversion to dirt.[[/labelnote]]

* Vworp Vworp [[labelnote:Explanation]]The sound the TARDIS makes when it lands or takes off, according to a sound effect in a ''DoctorWhoMagazine'' comic when it first started back in 1979. This has stuck as the "official" transcription of the sound.[[/labelnote]]

* No, ''not'' the mind ''probe!'' [[labelnote:Explanation]]The most famous instance of {{Narm}} in the entire series. The actor simply ''could not'' say the line without the bizarre inflection.

In so doing, he surpassed the original.)[[/labelnote]]
