Foods and beverages edit

  • Ace mentions that Hex is better at making tea than she is.

Gallifreyan laws edit

  • The story enumerates two specific criminal offences under Gallifreyan law. When a Time Lord sets her or himself up as a god in another culture, this is a "Class Two Intervention". Its penalty is vaporisation. Materially affecting the physical properties of a planet, such as its axial rotation, counts as a "Class One Intervention".

Planets edit

  • In the far future, Earth's ozone layer is compromised to the extent that life can no longer be sustained on the planet.

TARDIS edit

  • The way to kill a TARDIS is to pilot it into the heart of a star.
