A Matter of Time: Love & Monsters


ORIGINAL BROADCAST: 17/06/2006
DOCTOR: David Tennant
COMPANIONS: Billie Piper

STORY: An ordinary man named Elton Pope becomes obsessed with a man called the Doctor and his strange blue box, joining a group of like-minded people in hopes of finding him. But when the mysterious Victor Kennedy joins the group, the fun stops and Elton discovers a darker side to his hobby…

FACTS:
• The Abzorbaloff is a monster designed by nine year old William Grantham for a Blue Peter competition. He was disappointed with the final version of the monster because he had imagined it as “the size of a double-decker bus”.
• ‘Totally Doctor Who’ presenter Barney Harwood appears as an extra in this episode wearing a red hat, during the scene when Elton asks an old lady where Rose lives, and also in the flashback to the Slitheen spaceship crashing into Big Ben.
• The copy of The Daily Telegraph that the Abzorbaloff reads has the headline “Saxon leads polls with 64 percent”, a reference to the future story arc of Series Three.
