Behind the scenes
- Though, technically, Margaret Blaine has never appeared on Doctor Who, her Slitheen impersonator, Blon Fel-Fotch Passamer-Day Slitheen, gets credited as "Margaret Blaine" in the stories in which she appeared.
- The infant Blon Fel-Fotch Passamer-Day Slitheen (played by an actor of appropriate size) would have appeared in the Shadow Proclamation in an earlier draft of The Stolen Earth. Strangely, Blon would be called Margaret by her father.
