*** The Vicki/Victoria confusion helps bungle a ContinuityNod in "Pyramids of Mars", where the scene was scripted such that Sarah emerges in a dress belonging to ''Victoria'', and for the Doctor to absently call Sarah by that name. Tom Baker fiddled with the line and said 'hello, Vicky' (something Victoria was never called during her tenure in the show). Fans could be forgiven for thinking it's Vicki's dress - it's not really either girl's style, being an Edwardian gown (both girls mostly wore 60s fashion).
