  • Underneath the Abbess was the Charge, who wore green robes and whose priorities were to control the wards and ensure the Novices and Sisters were performing their tasks.

Catkind Edit

  • Just like humans could be allergic to cats, a small minority of cats could also be allergic to humans. The effects of a human allergy was much more devastating in the Catkind.

Miscellanious Edit

  • Ayesha asks Mel if the Doctor still has "that robot dog".
  • The Doctor ensures to wear a badge resembling a Catkind rather than a domesticated cat, stating that he doesn't wish to cause offense.
  • The Doctor fails to remember whether New Earth is in galaxy M57 or M87, later stating that it depended on which direction you entered from.
