Notes Edit

  • In the Endgame trade paperback, Alan Barnes stated this was both meant to be a return to the strip's version of Gallifrey - "'our' Gallifrey, as opposed to the arcane Looms and Houses of the New Adventures" - and a large "US comics-style Event" to prelude the Doctor's fake regeneration.
  • Part of the plot, including an entire chapter, were cut from the story. Barnes would go on to turn the visuals and ideas from that chapter into his audio drama Neverland.
  • The idea of a fake regeneration and "Doctor" was proposed by Scott Gray to Gary Gillatt in 1994. Gillatt remembered it in 1996, after the TV Movie, and decided the fake Doctor should resemble Nick Briggs' fan-audio Doctor, who had already been shown as a potential future Doctor in Party Animals.
