Dorium meets three cloaked figures, informing them that his agents have procured the exact security software they have requested. Dorium has extracted it from the memory of a Judoon trooper, admitting he decided that it was quicker to take the whole brain. He gives them the brain in exchange for a bag of sentient money. Dorium doesn’t understand why they are doing all this to imprison one child, and says he’s heard rumours about whose child they’ve taken. He asks if they are mad and if they’ve heard the stories about the Doctor. Dorium warns them God help us if you’ve made him angry.
- This is a prelude to A Good Man Goes To War. It is acknowledged within the story twice, first when Dorium tells Colonel Manton in the Maldovarium that the Headless Monks are old customers of his, explaining how he knows the location of Demons Run, and second when hacking into their security software on Demon’s Run, noting to the Eleventh Doctor that he sold it to them. His acquaintance with the Headless Monks leads to him approaching them to prevent a fight, resulting in his beheading.
- It is recommended by the BBC website that viewers watch The Almost People before seeing the prequel.
