The Doctor looks and seems human. He's handsome, sexy and witty, and could be mistaken for just another man in the street. But the Doctor is a Time Lord: a 909 year old alien with 2 hearts, part of a gifted civilization who mastered time travel with his TARDIS. The Doctor saves planets for a living and he's very, very good at it. The human race will survive - but only with the Doctor's help.

[show]At the start of Rose and Mickey's shopping trip a Routemaster doubledecker bus is very briefly shown, presumably as a device to indicate that the episode is taking place in contemporary London. Most Routemasters were withdrawn from service on 9 December 2005, approximately two weeks before the show was broadcast in the UK, and at least one year before the date on which the episode is supposedly set. However a small number of these buses remain on the streets of London serving "heritage" routes aimed principally at the nostalgia market.
- Peter Capaldi is the first actor to play The Doctor in the revival series to be born before the original series first premiered.
- The Guinevere 1 probe's design is based on NASA's Magellan spacecraft, whose radar mapped the surface of Venus from orbit between 1990 and 1994.
