"The departure of Harry while Sarah remains with the Doctor marks one of only two incontrovertible times a companion who had already been with the Doctor before another one joins remains with him after the second companion leaves."

Would Adam Mitchell be a third example, or is he in the "debatable" category? Sean Fennel 18:13, October 18, 2012 (UTC)

I would count Adam Mitchell, but since I've seen people insist that Adam was never a real companion, I guess it isn't incontrovertible. I would also count Rory, since he "left" after falling through the crack in time; Jack Harkness, left behind after The Parting of the Ways; Compassion; Anji Kapoor; Hex; and Mickey Smith, who remained behind on Pete's world while Rose continued to travel with the Doctor for a while. -- Rowan Earthwood 00:23, October 20, 2012 (UTC)
"Two other arguable examples would be Katarina and Sara Kingdom, who weren't with the Doctor very long, and ended up dying." As did Kamelion. Luckily, no-one cared. to me 11:18, April 11, 2018 (UTC)

Which tartan was the Doctor wearing at the beginning of this serial? I'm hoping it's McCrimmon. Tbug 04:32, November 17, 2013 (UTC)

I vividly recall this story being repeated in Scotland (as an omnibus episode) one afternoon in 1976, but I can't find the broadcast listed on the BBC Genome site. Can anyone pinpoint the exact date? to me 21:59, April 8, 2016 (UTC)

"When Sarah is typing on the typewriter, the text she is typing is already printed onto the paper, and she is therefore just typing over the text."

This is not an error. Sarah is underlining the title, and is typing a row of underscores.
