Characters appearing or mentioned in this episode



George Tully


fighter pilot (unnamed, spirit form)

soldier (unnamed, spirit form: later named as Sam Pearce in "The Railway Station" Part 5)


Didja Notice?


When Tully tells Steel that the gas lights in the railway station are obsolete, Steel rudely responds, "You should know about obsolescence." Steel is probably referring to Tully's remaining life expectancy seeing as Sapphire's analysis of the man in "The Railway Station" Part 1 told her he will die when he is 57 in three years (though Tully does not know this). Steel's remark takes on a more ominous meaning in the conclusion of "The Railway Station" Part 8 when Steel leaves Tully trapped with the spirit in the railway station.
