Hidden Away / Facts Edit

  • In 102 a gathering of the Doctors enemies included: Commander Strak and four Sontaran battlefleets, Daleks with 12,000 battleships and Cyberships.
  • Chelonians are cybernetic tortoises with X-ray vision that hate humans.
  • The Hungry Earth used a steelworks on location made to look like a coal mine. The hungry "hole" was actually a mechanics pit with a secret little room accessed through a trap door as people slide through a rubber ring that inflates to give the impression of being sucked through the earth.

Additional details Edit

  • The Pandorica Alliance feature (The Ultimate Monster Gang) also mentions: Drahvins, Draconians, Atraxi, Terileptil, Zygons and Chelonians.
  • Incidentally, mention of the Chelonians (with a pictorial reference) is the first reference to a non-BBC created alien encounter of the Doctor. The encounter however does appears as an e-book online.
  • The subscription offer for this issue with a saving of 40%.
  • This issue had a cover price of £2.50 (UK).
  • This issue's free gift was bagged.
  • Next issue's free gift is promoted as double sided giant poster, Dalek playing cards and more than sixty stickers.
