* ''The Making of Doctor Who'' book (first edition 1972, second edition 1976), by scriptwriters Creator/MalcolmHulke and Creator/TerranceDicks, established much of what became conventional wisdom about ''Series/DoctorWho'''s universe, fandom lacking any real way to see previous stories at the time. Perhaps more than any other source, it established the accepted framework of the Doctor's origin, with later additions, even in the TV series, getting assessed by whether or not they fit it. (That said, one part of this origin only got a foothold in the expanded universe, never being validated on screen - namely, the idea Susan wasn't the Doctor's granddaughter - and even then, the fact she's omitted from the Doctor's departure from Gallifrey is disregarded.)

So it's entirely possible that THIS is what the credit refers to - though that doesn't discount it also being a nod towards his nature as God of the series.]]
