Behind the scenes Edit
Accidental appearances Edit
Graham Norton is unique in that he has appeared on Doctor Who by accident twice.
- A mistake during the first broadcast of Rose in the UK meant that sound from a BBC Three program, Strictly Dance Fever hosted by Graham Norton, was heard over the scene in which Rose first encounters the Autons.
- During its airing in some parts of England, an animated advert for the talent show Over the Rainbow began playing over the cliffhanger of The Time of Angels. This sparked complaints to the BBC, who later apologised. The advert contained an animated Graham Norton, who later joked about it on his own show – saying he finally secured a role on Doctor Who, apparently unaware of his previous, accidental interruption.
Other matters Edit
- Although Graham says he is presenting the news in the NTA sketch, he is actually on the set of his own show. In real life, he is not a newscaster.
