Characters in flashbacks Edit
- The Forge started in the 1890s.
- An unnamed woman is Director of the Forge, back in Whitehall. The Deputy-Director works at the Alpha Facility.
- Lysandra calls Alpha Facility "the madhouse", as it was once a lunatic asylum; this is a nod to the Forge's origins, a Scott/Wright TV pitch where it was called Bedlam.
- Charles Crichton from TV: The Five Doctors is Deputy-Director of the Forge. In his early days in the British Army, he was friends with William Dalton and Archie Brimmicombe-Wood.
- Major Philip Kirby from UNIT audio AUDIO: The Longest Night appears as a Whitehall special envoy, not yet working as the Prime Minister's Press Secretary.
- ICIS villain Sergeant French (from AUDIO: The Coup) was in the Forge. He's recently been promoted from corporal and transferred to ICIS when the story takes place.
