  • When she first meets the Doctor, Connie assumes that he is going to a fancy dress party dressed as Bertie Wooster, referring to the "idle rich" English gentleman from P. G. Wodehouse's Jeeves novels.

Locations Edit

  • The Doctor left strict instructions to his solicitor that his house, 107 Baker Street, was not to be sold or let, and it has thus lain undisturbed since 1867. The inside of the house is covered in cobwebs and much of the furniture has rotted due to woodworm.
