Behind the scenes Edit

  • Three Doctor Who games have been released on Nintendo consoles:
  • As mentioned, in The Girl in the Fireplace, Mickey wears a T-shirt which has a picture of the Nintendo Entertainment System controller over the caption, "Know Your Roots". This particular T-shirt, a limited edition, could be obtained either by subscribing to the British Nintendo Official Magazine, or by being purchased at selected GameStation outlets. In Doctor Who Magazine #367 Noel Clarke admitted to being a Nintendo fan and to being the owner of a Nintendo DS console. He also commented upon the T-shirt in the commentary which accompanied the episode on the BBC Website. Appropriately, Mickey is involved in a video game-related adventure in the spin-off novel Winner Takes All and is seen playing a video game with the Tenth Doctor in the comic story The Lodger.
