The appearance of 'The Brigadier' in Mawdryn Undead was originally to have been Ian Chesterton - unfortunately William Russell was busy at the time!

Although the Fourth Doctor always refers to the sweets he has as jelly babies, they're actually quite often liquorice allsorts.  This is true of a number of stories, but Image of the Fendahl particularly comes to mind (when he offers the skull a "jelly baby").

"In a gloomy street stands a Metropolitan Police Box. Then next to it appears a TARDIS of the correct size and shape for the First Doctor. Another TARDIS arrives - that of the Eleventh Doctor!

This video shows the differences between the correct proportions of the Mk2 Metropolitan Police Box versus the earliest and most recent TARDISes. The Hartnell box was smaller, but had more a more accurate appearance. Whereas the Matt Smith box (just like all props of the new series) is a more accurate size, but is too fat, and the panels are far too large.

This inaccuracy is of course so well documented now that Steven Moffat even pokes fun of the fans upset over the prop in his episode Blink. But, let's face it, when the Doctor Who prop is placed next to a correct Police Box, you have to admit that it's got the worst Camouflage Unit ever! It's a good job it has a Perception Filter to disguise the fact it's a rubbish approximation of a Mk 2 Met Police Box!"

Rory's ID card says it was issued in November of 1990, but is apparently an over sight/ accident by the production crew that the Moff knew nothing about...



(I had this image screenied but it's quality was poor, so I had to google it)
