Uncredited cast Edit
Removed uncredited, unsourced cast.
- Auton - Natalie Danks-Smith (uncredited; archival footage)
Are we sure that there's even archival footage of the scene retelling TV: Rose? Certainly, most of it is newly-shot footage. There is no way that Elton is inserted Name of the Doctor-style into these shots; the BBC actually filmed new footage. -- Tybort (talk page) 15:41, November 10, 2013 (UTC)
- Just before his demise, the Abzorbaloff angrily yells, "You stupid bast..." at Elton, mirroring the Slitheen's final words of "Oh, boll..." prior to the destruction of 10 Downing Street. (TV: World War Three)
- I think you're right. He has a habit of calling Elton "stupid man" throughout the episode. Shambala108 ☎ 17:08, November 10, 2013 (UTC)
Transport manager Edit
- Elton once worked for the haulage company Rita Logistics.
I can't say this for certain because of Marc Warren's strong London accent, and I don't work in haulage to know if the following makes sense, but to me it sounds like "transport manager, retail logistics, modest little haulage company", i.e. he's managing logistics for retail in a small company. -- Tybort (talk page) 00:37, November 11, 2013 (UTC)
- This episode has received criticism from viewers for its bizarre and almost cartoonish nature, and is often regarded by fans as one of the worst new series stories in terms of its quality (along with its succeeding episode, Fear Her), despite its initial critical acclaim. Peter Kay has also displayed backlash towards his role as the Abzorbaloff, describing it as "a fat green alien running around Cardiff."
- Near the end of the episode, Elliot remarks how he still has "a bit of a love life" with Ursula (who has been changed into a face on a slab of concrete), who urges him not to go into any more detail. This statement, a subtle & comical reference to oral sex, has come under particular scorn from fans for its unusually risque nature, particularly in the context presented.
