Behind the scenes Edit

Comics Edit

TV series Edit

  • The 1967 cartoon show can be recognised by the quoted line from its theme song. Technically, it isn't possible to tell in The Stockbridge Horror whether this is a cartoon with a song or if someone is warning him about the coming of the Spider-Man.

Parallel universes Edit

Films Edit

  • One idea for The Lazarus Experiment was a mad scientist working on developing invulnerable synthetic skin; it was dropped because Davies feared that this might be part of the plot of the movie Spider-Man 3, which was due for release around the same time that Greenhorn's episode would likely air. [1]
  • Andrew Garfield played Spider-Man in the 2012 film The Amazing Spider-Man and its 2014 sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
  • Alfred Molina, who played Doctor Octopus in the 2004 Spider-Man sequel, was considered for the Eighth Doctor in the 1996 TV Movie. [] Edit

The website had a list of sightings of the Doctor from which people had ostensibly been submitting to Clive Finch, a conspiracy theorist character from TV: Rose.

A submission from Gustavo Lugo said that Gustavo saw the version of the Doctor shown on Clive's website — the Ninth Doctor — "a couple of weeks ago", trying to sell Spider-Man comics from the 1960s and 1970s. The store owner refused because "they looked too brand new to be original copies." [1]
