References Edit

  • The Doctor laments that he does not have access to a scanning electron microscope in the 1890s.
  • From the high clay content of the soil from which the Sandmen are made, the Doctor determines that the soil was taken from Bedfordshire. Litefoot recalls that there is a village named Kempston-Hardwick in Bedfordshire.
  • The Doctor sank the TARDIS to the bottom of the mud in the River Thames to hide it from Mr Kempston and Mr Hardwick. He intends to retrieve it using a Stattenheim remote control.
  • Lord Ampthill's workmen discovered a Temperon vessel which was dragged to the 1890s by Payne's temporal experiments. Unlike the Time Lords, the Temperons lack true time travel. The Doctor claims that, in a sense, Mr Kempston and Mr Hardwick are the vessel's pilots whereas, in another sense, they are part of the ship itself. They seek to absorb the artron energy from the TARDIS in order to access the Time Vortex.
  • The Doctor notes that the 1890s is a little too early for Werner Heisenberg.
  • Jago's erstwhile fiancé Abigail Woburn was created by Mr Kempston and Mr Hardwick from the soil in the same manner in which they manifested themselves and created their duplicates.
  • The Doctor has an appointment in the Horsehead Nebula in the 29th century.
  • As her Time Ring is again operational, Leela returns to Gallifrey.
