Genesis of the Daleks - S12-E4

Trivia: The actor who played Davros, Michael Wisher, always wore a kilt to the studio, as he preferred it to trousers. It is never seen, of course, as his lower body is always hidden inside his Dalek chair. (Source: DVD commentary).

Total Recall (1990)

Trivia: Most of the movie was shot in Mexico because it was believed labour costs to build the sets would be cheaper there, but it turned out that the cost of importing required materials from the US negated this benefit.

The Caves of Androzani - S21-E6

Trivia: On the DVD commentary, Peter Davison remarks that when Christopher Gable whacked him across the face with the back of his hand, it actually hurt quite a bit, even though they'd discussed it beforehand. Davison believes that Gable couldn't see him properly with his mask on, although a more likely explanation is that Gable got too carried away.
