DVD release (with cover blurb) Edit
- Each issue came with a DVD release.
- Reversible DVD sleeves enabled the collector to display one of two designs featuring either the Doctor and his enemies or his companions.
- "You don't want to take over the Universe do you? You wouldn't know what to do with it beyond shout at it."
- The Doctor, Romana and K-9 are searching for the segments of the Key to Time. Having found the first one on the planet Ribos, the time travellers head for Calufrax – and end up on Zanak. A vast space-hopping "pirate planet" that plunders other worlds, Zantak is ruled by a cyborg pirate captain with a robot parrot. But are things really as they seem?
Notable Information Edit
- The crystal ball of the Carrionites contained another dimension, much like the outer shell of the Doctor's TARDIS.
- Back in 1999, Richard Curtis (a writer later to pen Vincent and the Doctor) approached Steven Moffatt (writer and also Executive Producer of the show) to write a sketch for Comic Relief that became The Curse of Fatal Death.
- Inspiration for the concept of the alien Vogan species was drawn from Shakespearean-style characters with the aliens carrying "sticks and proclaiming things!" according to director Michael E. Briant.
- The planet Calufrax was crushed by the planet Zanak and the planet Calufrax Minor was for a while moved by Davros to the Medusa Cascade.
