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.
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.
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.]

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: When Harriet Jones is explaining the sub-wave network to the Doctor's companions she says "It was created by the Mr. Copper Foundation" This is a reference to Mr. Copper from 'Voyage of the Damned' who stayed to live on Earth and who probably would have had the advanced technology from the planet Stow where he came from.

Trivia: When The Doctor puts on the gas mask and looks at the soldier who already has his mask on, The Doctor asks, "Are you my mummy?" This was a reference the "Empty Child" episode where infected people wearing gas masks constantly say,"Are you my mummy".

Trivia: Filming of this episode was delayed for several reasons. One was that the school that they were filming in was discovered to have asbestos just after they started, so they needed to find a new place. And in the scene in and outside of the cafe, filming was delayed when several drunk people wandered onto the set and started messing everything up.
Trivia: Very few actors have played separate villains in three different Doctor Who shows. Julian Bleach plays Davros in the main Doctor Who series, the Ghostmaker in Torchwood, and the Nightmare Man in The Sarah Jane Adventures. Paul Marc Davies plays the Futurekind leader in Doctor Who, something in Torchwood (I forgot) and the Trickster in Sarah Jane. Nicholas Briggs also provides voices in all three series for aliens and robots.
Trivia: As the Doctor and Donna stand in the room, Caecilius enters. He is played by Peter Capaldi, who later on took over the role of The Doctor from Matt Smith. It was later written into the storyline that the reason the Doctor's regeneration picked that face was as a reminder to himself that he saves lives.
