The characters of Jago and Litefoot, along with PC Quick, have their own AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho [[http://www.bigfinish.com/Jago-and-Litefoot spinoff range.]] It also occasionally features the Fourth and Sixth Doctors, as well as Leela.

to:

The characters of Jago and Litefoot became quite popular with fans, and for years rumours was abound about a planned spin-off centred around the duo solving crimes in Victorian London, and it was even seriously considered by the BBC a couple of times. While the spin-off never made it to TV, Jago and Litefoot, along with PC Quick, have eventually ended up getting their own AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho [[http://www.bigfinish.com/Jago-and-Litefoot spinoff range.]] It also occasionally features the Fourth and Sixth Doctors, as well as Leela.

* UsefulNotes/FilipinosWithFirearms: Apparently the Philippines is a world power in the 51st century as the Doctor mentions marching with the Filipino Army as they advanced on a Supreme Alliance stronghold of Reykjavik. This is endlessly amusing to the few Filipinos who've heard about this episode (or this show, for that matter).
** The episode doesn't actually say that the Philippines are a world power, just that a Filipino army took part in the final battle.
** Icelandic viewers are similarly amused by the idea of their capital being of vital geostrategic importance.

* ReliablyUnreliableGuns: Litefoot worries that the Doctor's elephant gun (which hasn't been used in years) might go off in the Doctor's face. "Nonsense," the Doctor assures him, "it was made in Birmingham."

Another episode by Creator/RobertHolmes, this episode is markedly DarkerAndEdgier, HotterAndSexier, as well as BloodierAndGorier than most of classic ''Series/DoctorWho''. It is generally regarded as one the best, if not ''the'' best, serials of the entire series, despite ''piles'' of UnfortunateImplications.
