Real Time was one of a few animated webcasts produced featuring various incarnations of the Doctor in the years prior to the revival of the series.
This serial is notable for including the character of Evelyn Smythe, marking the first time a character created for the Big Finish Productions audio dramas had appeared in a BBC-sponsored production. It also marked the final (active) appearance, to date, of the original version of the Cybermen in a BBC-sponsored production before the advent of the Cybus Cybermen in 2006.
