Curse of Fatal Death

Just cheered myself up by watching The Curse of Fatal Death. As well as several fun elements of continuity ("All these corridors look the same!") (the music at the end is surely the incidental music from the end of Logopolis) I thought I picked up on some foreshadowing of the (canonical) Ninth Doctor's story arc. And some zany other bits ("I'll tell you later", even echoed by the Daleks).

I am a big fan of Julia Sawalha but did not recognise her at first. Her best line is "Result!" According to IMDB this is her only joint appearance with Rowan Atkinson, Hugh Grant, Jim Broadbent or Jonathan Pryce. Richard E. Grant appeared in one episode of Absolutely Fabulous, and Joanna Lumley in, er, more.
