Trivia / Doctor Who S29 E7 "42"

  • Dueling Movies: Or "Duelling Episode and Movie", as the basic plot of this episode shares a striking similarity with the plot of Danny Boyle's film Sunshine which came out a few months after the episode aired. This episode was even edited after filming to change the name of the ship to Pentallian — originally, it was "Icarus", the same as in Sunshine! In fact, in a brief close-up of the Doctor in his orange space suit at around 31 min, you can read the word "Icarus" at the top of his helmet (and the word "Transtellar" at the bottom).
