References[edit | edit source]
- Rachel believes the description of the Doctor as a small man with black hair and crumpled clothes matches the Doctor she knows.
- The Intelligence operates from a temporal fold, in which it creates a construct on the astral plane that its will sustains and through which the physical world is accessible.
- It creates a quantum harmonic generator that will transmit a signal on a quantum level and summon the Doctor.
- Rachel and Gilmore find a production plant where Yeti are constructing more Yeti. Rachael notes that the inside of a control sphere has a radio transmitter and no propulsion unit, and that much of the equipment inside the Yetis is outdated.
- The monks of Det-Sen believe the Intelligence is the product of "consecutive consciousness," i.e. reincarnation, and is from the far future. The Intelligence later boasts that it is millennia old, has consumed more minds than are on Earth, and has traversed the depths of time and space.

- This story takes place "a few years" after the events of The Web of Fear.
