Trivia: In this movie, the hinges on the small phone box door, which is contained in the larger left hand door of the Tardis are located to the right, causing the door to open from the left. In the TV series (original and new) the same door opens from the right, with hinges on the left.

Question: The Tardis brings back Grace and Chang, so does that make them immortal, fixed points in time like Captain Jack Harkness?


Chosen answer: Whereas Grace and Chang are both human, Captain Jack Harkness is alien - So the effect the TARDIS has is very different. In addition, as is revealed in the series as well, The TARDIS is more than a machine, it is alive... It also has knowledge even the Time Lords do not have - By making Jack Harkness immortal, it is also fulfilling his destiny.
