The Tenth Doctor commented that the desert planet Karris "...doesn't seem to have much more going for it than Lanzarote" when on board the Sword of Justice during a visit to the Andromeda Galaxy. (PROSE: Shining Darkness)
Behind the scenes Edit
- Lanzarote, one of the Canary Islands off the northwest coast of Africa, was the first non-European filming location for Doctor Who. In Planet of Fire, the island doubled as both itself and as an alien planet. The production team later returned there to film scenes set on the lunar surface for Kill the Moon.
