Episode Notes
All the actors who played the Doctor in this spoof were considered for the role at one point.

Richard E. Grant (The Conceited Doctor) would later play an alternate version of the Ninth Doctor in the animated webcast Scream of the Shalka in 2003. Along with Sylvester McCoy, he is one of only two actors to play two different incarnations of the Doctor.

As of 2009, Joanna Lumley is one of only two women to have ever played the Doctor in any production. The other is Arabella Weir who played an alternative female incarnation of the Doctor in the 2003 Doctor Who Unbound audio drama Exile.
