- Leela wonders if she and the Doctor will ever see Professor George Litefoot and Henry Gordon Jago again. Many years after she had left the TARDIS and taken up residence on Gallifrey, she would be reunited with Jago and Litefoot on being sent to the 1890s by Lady President Romana to investigate the time breaks manifesting in London during that era. (AUDIO: The Ruthven Inheritance, Dead Men's Tales) While travelling with Romana's first incarnation, the Fourth Doctor would later meet Jago and Litefoot in 1899.

- The Doctor once again observes that, while it may be irrational, "human beings are quite [his] favourite species." (TV: The Ark in Space)
