Errors and ExplanationsEdit
Internet Movie DatabaseEdit
- The reference to the UK needing special "secret launch codes" from the UN is a compete fiction. The UK could launch a nuclear strike without needing permission from the UN. They probably wanted to give their actions the appearance of legitimacy.
- Mickey fires a UGM-84 missile at 10 Downing Street at the Doctor's instructions. The UGM-84 Harpoon is an anti-ship missile and not a land-attack missile. A variant of the Harpoon has been designed as a Land Attack Missile (SLAM) but is not in service with the Royal Navy. The Doctor obviously decided to improvise by using the only weapon that could do the job in the limited time available.
