- Jennifer Hennessy plays Bill’s adopted mother Moira. She was previously in Doctor Who in Gridlock, playing Valerie, the woman who married the cat guy in the cars.
- While officially not a multi part story, Extremis is a sort of prequel to the following two episodes (The Pyramid at the End of the World & The Lie of the Land), which themselves feel like a two parter, but are not officially a two parter.

WTF - don't understand most of it. The Pope/Vatican, the Veritas, Missy's flashbacks, Bill/Nardole's teleports. Confusing as F. The entire thing is a simulation, a prequel to next few eps. pic.twitter.com/8IkselWyQr
