Behind the scenes Edit

search-wise.net is a real website, but not a real search engine. It exists as a mock-up site on which producers of films and TV programmes can show their characters performing web searches, without the complications inherent in using a real-world search engine. search-wise.net is the property of Compuhire, a company which specialises in video playback for film and television.

search-wise.net was the first website portrayed on-screen in Doctor Who. It remains one of very few websites seen on-screen in Doctor Who which actually existed in some form on the Internet, but was not created by the BBC as a promotional tie-in.
