The last sketch in this episode featured Clive Dunn as Doctor Fotheringown, who is interviewed at BBC Television Centre about his new invention, a rocket time machine. It is believed to be the very first sketch to parody Doctor Who, with Clive Dunn's character dressed very similarly to William Hartnell's Doctor, and the show is also referenced in the sketch itself ("Dr Who?").
