The Master[]

  • The Unbound Master is using the title "The Manager" as an alias.
  • According to the Master, he and the Doctor both worked together to build the Emporium. When the Great War hit, the Doctor ran away. The Doctor does not recall it, but accepts that it could be a possibility due to his recent memory loss.


  • Bernice finds a sonic screwdriver and states that "her" Doctor would recognise it. She also notes that she doesn't recognise this particular model.
  • The Sisterhood of Beedlix have an astrometric scanner.
  • Bernice has met cyborg kids before in her universe. She once performed a C section on armoured battle borg twins with a battlefield laser.

The Emporium[]

  • Poorer customers are able to sell their memories to buy items if they do not have enough credits.
  • As Bernice finds out first hand, the gateway does not actually lead to another universe. In fact, it atomises anyone who walks into it.

Unbound Universe[]

  • Due to the Master's use of "smoke and mirrors", as the Doctor refers to it, stars and galaxies are missing. The Master has made it seem to customers as though it's the end of the universe.
  • The Doctor sells his memories to expand the lifespan of the universe by a few thousand years.


  • The TARDIS is still finding it difficult to travel far in time and space. At any one time, she is limited to the number of planets she can reach due to the power it takes to get there. Travelling becomes strained for her.
  • The Cloister bell rings.
  • The TARDIS has trouble handling so many people when they travel to the Emporium.


  • The Mother Superior and her nuns continue to refresh and calm themselves with tea.
  • The Mother Superior gives bottles of holy wine to 'the Manager' and Benny during their meeting but refuses to drink it herself at first.
  • Later, the Mother Superior and Benny get themselves drunk on wine.
