MythsEdit

I've removed this information from the Myths section:

It also could be interpreted to imply that the Doctor might have been able to have gotten Jamie's memories restored, and then somehow convinced an older Victoria to start travelling with him again. Decades later, the mini-episode TV: Time Crash provided a rationale for the Fifth Doctor having aged; the rationale could be extended to suggest why the Second Doctor appears aged here, and therefore imply that this story could have taken place much earlier in his incarnation - e.g., before War Games; however, that would not explain why the Second Doctor was working for the Time Lords. However [1] interview with Holmes would.

The statement is far too vague and does not state information, only a source.

Additionally the site linked does not provide sources for its information, merely stating in one of the sections for the Robert Holmes article that "This interview is from an old DWM." from which the author of the site has "cut parts out" of. Since we don't know what he's cut out, or from which DWM interview the information is from I don't think it's a valid source.

The information (whatever it is) can be included on the article, but it needs to be cited from its original source, not this second hand chopped up version. --Tangerineduel / talk 14:45, September 16, 2012 (UTC)

Uncredited cast Edit

I've moved the uncredited cast to the talk page until they can be properly sourced (not IMDB). Shambala108 04:44, October 16, 2012 (UTC)

And DWM 195 is the reference you were looking for.165.225.80.75talk to me 11:24, November 1, 2018 (UTC)

The Computer Display Edit

As a hobby, I like finding out where text shown on-screen comes from. In Part 2, about eight and a half minutes in, the Doctor accesses a computer and a wall of text flows very rapidly up the screen. This one was pretty interesting to me, but I don't know what info, if any, would be appropriate to be added to the actual wiki page.

The text was created using SIMP (Simplified Integrated Modular Prose) created by Brian J. Ford. It was published in 1971 in his book, Nonscience, (ISBN 0-7234-0449-6). SIMP can also be found on Mr Ford's own website[2].

SIMP is pretty simple to use. It consists of four modules, each containing ten entries, numbered 0–9. Choose or randomly generate a four digit number, one digit for each module. Then copy the corresponding text from each module, in order. A complete, grammatically-correct sentence will be created. An automatic technobabble generator written long before the term was coined.

Reversing the SIMP code, by paragraph, the digits entered were:
(The first digits are unknown, the start of the paragraph is already scrolled off the top of the screen when the display is shown.)
206 9825
0378 1015 8926
9740 520(?) (sentence stops abruptly, string too long error shown on-screen)
7616 2366 4614
2212 6242 8469
If the numbers have any meaning, it is beyond my Google skills. Being that it actually is a computer generated display, it is likely they truly are random.

     In respect to specific goals the c

concept. In particular, a primary inter-
relationship between system and/or
subsystem technologies must utilise and
be functionally interwoven with the

     Thus, any associated supporting el

Uncredited crew Edit

Removing uncredited crew from crew list. "Widely known as the Howell theme" still isn't a source, fwiw. -- Tybort (talk page) 21:13, July 20, 2017 (UTC)
