Doctor Who

The Runaway Bride - S3-E14

New this month Trivia: When the Doctor sends the banknotes flying out into the street, all of the notes have David Tennant's or Phil Collinson's (the producer) faces on them, with quotes from the Fourth and Tenth Doctor (like "no second chances - I'm that sort of a man"). The notes have since become collectors items, selling often for about 50 pounds each.

Love & Monsters - S2-E13

New this month Trivia: Elton's line of "We've even got a bit of a love life" was controversially received as his lover Ursula was a head stuck in a paving slab, and the only kind of sex life they could have was oral sex. Russell T. Davies defended this, saying it was a harmless joke that children would not understand.

Rise of the Cybermen (1) - S2-E8

Trivia: Only eleven cybermen costumes were built but careful filming makes it look as if there are more.

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.]

Quotes

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.
