Behind the scenes Edit

In The Sun Makers, Mandrel and the Fourth Doctor have the exchange, "What have we got to lose?" "Only your claims". This riffs on a common paraphrase of the final lines of The Communist Manifesto by Marx and Friedrich Engels, "What have you got to lose? Only your chains." The official English translation of the line is "The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains."

Joel Fry played Karl Marx in the BBC comedy series Twenty Twelve and its follow-up W1A.
