The Thing from Another World was a film Shona McCullough planned to watch on DVD as part of her Christmas Day itinerary. (TV: Last Christmas) The film was directed by Howard Hawks, and according to the Eleventh Doctor featured a "walking carrot". The Doctor brought this film up when Amy asked if he'd seen The Thing, and he wasn't sure which version she meant—this one, or the "Carpenter, Kurt Russell Thing". (GAME: Blood of the Cybermen)
Behind the scenes Edit
