  • The Doctor dreams that his life becomes the basis for a TV programme which is cancelled for no apparent reason and then begrudgingly returned opposite Coronation Street. This mirrors the real-life situation from the late 1980s when Doctor Who on the BBC aired directly opposite "Corrie" on ITV. The long-running soap opera (the only UK dramatic series to surpass Doctor Who in longevity) consistently scored higher ratings against the later seasons of Doctor Who. This is widely considered a contributing factor in the classic series being taken off the air in 1989.
