Although Gwendoline and Smirkenorff never appeared on screen together, they each helped dungeoneers throughout Series 5. Smirkenorff also appeared in Series 6, 7 and 8.

Tatum Flynn's painting has been praised on social media by Juliet Bryant (née Henry-Massy) who played Gwendoline, and by Mark Cordory, who created the Smirkenorff puppet.
