In the DVD commentary on Gangsters Incident 1, commentary moderator D(i)ck Fiddy commented on Maurice Colbourne reprising John Kline after doing the pilot.

Fiddy said to the effect that Colbourne was somewhat hesitant about getting back as John Kline and that it was like Chris Eccleston not wanting to do more Doctor Who.

Director Alastair Reid commented on Terry Downes, an ex-boxer turned actor, sitting in the background with nothing to say as what he said was unintelligible.

Reid said he came up with his backstory of him having his throat cut and therefore could only talk via a Dalek-sounding device!

The Shadow Passes:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/doctorwh...f-3136207abfa2

Written by Paul Cornell.

Featuring the Thirteenth Doctor, Graham, Yaz and Ryan.

This story is told from Yaz's perspective.

Cornell has presented this story an allegory for passing time during the COVID-19 pandemic. After all just as The Shadow Passes so will COVID-19.

The allegory here has the Doctor and friends in a shelter on Calapia while the Death Moon hangs over it.

Fun the games they play to pass this time.

During this time Lewis Capaldi's name came up. Through his father's side, Capaldi's second cousin once removed is Peter Capaldi, Jodie Whittaker's predecessor as the Doctor.

The Doctor says about putting "this girl in a mirror". This is a reference to Daughter of Mine from Cornell's story Human Nature/The Family of Blood.

Enjoyable story that reflects the current state of the real world.
