** The Daleks in the special are made and played by FanFilm producers, specifically those of ''Devious'' (which is most notable for its final scenes with '''Jon Pertwee''' as the Third Doctor). You can clearly see the actors inside them in some shots.

The Ninth Doctor (Creator/RowanAtkinson) contacts the Master (Jonathan Pryce), wanting to meet him on the planet Terserus. The Doctor reveals that he's planning to retire and is engaged to his companion Emma (Julia Sawalha), after which things get... kinda weird. And then the Daleks get involved, aligned with the Master but with their own goals as well. When the Doctor and Emma are captured, he's killed several times and rapidly cycles through being Creator/RichardEGrant, Jim Broadbent, Creator/HughGrant, and finally Creator/JoannaLumley... who decides she'd actually rather shag the Master than fight him.

* CastingGag: All the actors who played the Doctor in this parody had at some point been considered for the actual role. Yes, including Creator/JoannaLumley. (Creator/RichardEGrant would actually go on to play the character in ''WebAnimation/ScreamOfTheShalka'', a story that was meant as canon and only declared CanonDiscontinuity during its production.)

The comedy special is notable for offering an early glimpse into concepts that Creator/StevenMoffat would later bring into ''Doctor Who'' proper, once he became the series' showrunner. These include the Doctor marrying a companion, Time Lords regenerating as a different sex, Emma's outfit (a version of which was seen on companion Amy Pond later on), extremely complicated time travel schemes, and [[FoeYay the good ship Doctor/Master]].
