Other matters[[edit]]

  • In the novelisation Doctor Who and the Tenth Planet, Ben Jackson views a James Bond film starring Roger Moore. Although the film is not mentioned by name, the book mentions a battle with kung-fu students, something which appeared in the 1974 film The Man With the Golden Gun.
    • In the original serial The Tenth Planet, Jackson viewed an unidentified western film. When the serial was broadcast in 1966, Moore had not yet been cast as Bond; he had, however, made two appearances by the time the novelisation was published in 1976.
  • Eric Saward noted in 30 Years in the TARDIS that the characterisation of the Third Doctor was reflective of the popularity of James Bond at the time.
