Story Notes Edit
- Strax says the Sixth Doctor died because of his ''single attempt at exercise''. Similarly, in the invalid source The Secret Lives of Monsters the Doctor recalls dying because he fell off an exercise bike.
- Strax can't tell men from women: he mistakes Vastra and Jenny for men, and the First Doctor for a woman. (TV: The Snowmen, The Crimson Horror)
- Strax mentions the First Doctor facing the Cybermen (TV: The Tenth Planet), the Second Doctor being exiled, (TV: The War Games), the Third Doctor being "frightened" by a big spider, (TV: Planet of the Spiders), the Fifth Doctor being "inflated" on Androzani, (TV: The Caves of Androzani), the Sixth Doctor's single attempt at exercise, (TV: Terror of the Vervoids, Time and the Rani) which is a misconception. (AUDIO: The Brink of Death)
- Strax says the Fourth Doctor wore a giant sheep. (TV: Robot et al.)
