  • Notably, this is the first Doctor Who parody, only 39 days after the original broadcast of the first episode An Unearthly Child.
  • This also makes Clive Dunn the second actor to play the Doctor in any medium.
  • Clive Dunn dons William Hartnell's original First Doctor costume.
  • The sketch's writer, Michael Bentine, was considered for the role of the Fourth Doctor before Tom Baker was cast.
