Behind the scenes Edit

  • It has never been specified if the Clockworks is a country, a planet, or even a galaxy.
  • The residents of the Clockworks are occasionally referred to as "the Clockworks" by metonymy, or, more rarely, "Clockworkers", but they are never given a more definite species name. In other Iris Wildthyme stories, including PROSE: The Scarlet Empress and PROSE: Verdigris, Iris and her House of Aunts have been identified as coming from Gallifrey.
