Trivia

The title is a reference to The Sex Pistols song "Anarchy in the UK". However, this is the second spider themed parody title based on the song. Previously "Arachny in the UK" was used as a tagline for the 2016 British horror musical Spidarlings (2016).

Arachnids In The UK came on October 28 2018 and eight days later on November 5 in fellow time travel series Legends of Tomorrow in Dancing Queen, Sara coincidentally mentioned Anarchy In The UK. See more »

User Reviews

 
Laughable!

Bad CGI, bad writing, a cringe-worthy attempt at political satire aimed at Donald Trump and the title pun from the episode was stolen from British B-horror movie Spidarlings: Arachny in the U.K. One of the worst Dr Who episodes ever.
