- The Deer Woman is an actual figure in Native American folklore. Deer Woman is often said to have all the features of a normal young woman, except her feet which are shaped like deer hooves and her brown deer's eyes. Men who are lured into her presence often notice too late that she is not a natural woman and are then stomped to death.

The climactic scene where the werewolf goes on a rampage and is subsequently shot in Piccadilly Circus is referenced in this episode, implying that the two events take place in a shared continuity.
