Spoilers are precisely defined here. Rules vary by the story's medium. Info from television stories can't be added here until after the top or bottom of the hour, British time, closest to the end credits roll on BBC One. Therefore, fans in the Americas who are sensitive to spoilers should avoid Tardis on Sundays until they've seen the episode.
The appearance of Professor Lammers appears to have been inspired by Frederick Percival Blunden, the title character played by Laurence Naismith in the 1972 feature film The Amazing Mr. Blunden, which was being screened in cinemas at the time The Ugrakks was published in TV Action.
