Story Notes

  • This story immediately followed The Christmas Invasion and was initially only available to subscribers to the BBC's red button interactive service. Viewers were able to pilot the TARDIS and fight the Graske both on its native world of Griffoth and in Victorian London. From Wednesday 18th January 2006, the story was available to access via the BBC website, but only for UK residents. At one point it was available to international users of the website as well.
  • The question of whether this episode "counts" as a television story is somewhat muddied by its interactive nature. Some regard it primarily as a game, rather than an episode. However a possible reference to the events of the story can be heard in The Sarah Jane Adventures story Whatever Happened to Sarah Jane?, which featured the first undisputed canonical appearance of the Graske, in which Sarah Jane Smith makes reference to there being some Graske activity on Earth a couple of years previous. Gareth Roberts wrote both storylines. Changelings and Graske activity at Christmas are also mentioned by Jack Harkness in his Monster Files, using footage from this adventure.
  • Doctor Who: The Encyclopedia states that it is set after Tooth and Claw.
  • A Zygon makes a cameo, they had not been seen since DW: Terror of the Zygons.
