Trivia: Doctor Who 2007 CS "Voyage of the Damned"

  • Nice Character, Mean Actor: During an interview for Doctor Who Magazine, Clive Swift tore into journalist Benjamin Cook much like Tom Baker's scathing attitude toward scripts and directors on set.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!:
    • Russell Tovey (George) is Midshipman Alonzo. And the second Being Human (UK) star to appear in the show, following Linora Crichlow in "Gridlock".
    • Also, Richard BucketAhem!  got a job on the Titanic.
    • And the guitarist is Murray Gold, the main composer for every soundtrack in the revived series.
  • Real Life Writes the Plot: Astrid is set up to join the Doctor as a new companion, but Kylie Minogue probably can't spend a year filming in Wales.
  • What Could Have Been: David Jason was approached to play the role of Mr. Copper. Sadly he proved unavailable. He'd probably have been more polite to the poor journalist interviewing the cast than Clive Swift was...
  • Word of God: Russell T Davies wrestled with how to make it clear that the rest of the Titanic's crew and passengers weren't just a bunch of humans. It was only after it was too late that he realised he should have made them talk about "the humans" (in the third person) more often.
