Trivia: Possible Spoiler: At the time of this writing, it is generally believed that the "Mister Saxon" referred to throughout Season 3 will turn out to be The Master. One piece of evidence backing this theory is The Master's penchant for anagrammatic aliases: Mister Saxon is an anagram of "Master No Six," and if it's true, John Simm would be the 6th actor to play The Master. [Russell T Davies (who wrote most of the episodes) has said that the anagram is pure coincidence which was picked up by some people, but was completely unintended. Still interesting regardless.]Captain Defenestrator
Trivia: Jack causes the Clock Tower to light up. At the end, the writer wanted someone to say 'Jack, did you remember to turn off Big Ben?' then have a bomb land on the Houses of Parliament and the Clock Tower. (The Houses of Parliament did get bombed. The joke was to make it all Jack's fault).
Trivia: Freema Agyeman, who later played Martha Jones, plays Adeola in this episode. Russell T Davies later said that by the time he came on set and saw her performance, she had already shot her death scene - if she hadn't, he would have rewritten the episode so that she survived to become the next companion. Hence why Martha references her cousin Adeola in "Smith and Jones."
Doctor: So, that's the trap. Or the test or the final judgment, I don't know. But if I kill you, I kill her. Except that implies, in this big grand scheme of Gods and Devils, that she's just a victim. But I've seen a lot of this universe. I've seen fake gods and bad gods and demi-gods and would-be gods - out of all that - out of that whole pantheon - if I believe in one thing... Just one thing... I believe in her.
