Silver Scream was originally intended to include Charlie Chaplin, however it was found out late that there were rights problems in using him, and so he was replaced with a character named Archie Maplin. If it had been Charlie Chaplin, then it would have fit in with Donna's reference to him in Journey's End similarly to how the Doctor mentioned a desire to meet Agatha Christie in The Last of the Time Lords.

  • In Journey's End when Donna Noble is about to get her memories whiped by the Doctor. She suggests going to meet Charlie Chaplin. As noted above, rights issues prevented the use of Chaplin for this story, however the Doctor does make an oblique reference to "the fellow in the bowler hat", indicating that Maplin is intended to be a different individual existing in the same universe as Chaplin (which preserves continuity should Chaplin ever appear on the TV series).
  • In an interview, Tony Lee confirmed that the ongoing series featuring the Tenth Doctor occurs right before the final specials.
  • The characters of Matthew and Emily return at the end of the following story arc, Fugitive, at which point they become companions of the Doctor.


Fugitive includes a reference to the "He will knock four times" prophecy (DW: Planet of the Dead), thereby placing this story in the post-DW: Journey's End continuity.
