The Times Exclusive level was initially available a physical copy from the 19th December 1999 to 21st December 1999, obtained by calling The Times’ specified ‘Lara hotline’ on 09069 130 707. There were only just 5000 copies available. As extra trivia, the call to the Lara Hotline cost £1 a minute and up to £2.50. After the 21st December, the level was only available as a download from The Times’ dedicated Lara section and then later, from fan sites.
There was a story called ‘Down Among the Dead’ published by the Times newspaper to compliment the Times exclusive level. It was written by Erica Wagner, who was the then literary editor of The Times and there were 7 episodes, each published every Saturday, starting on 27th November 1999 and finishing around the New Year 2000. Sadly, there are only two episodes available on the web.
On the wall behind Peter Stothard's desk is a framed photograph of the Chuckle Brothers, English childrens' programme comedy duo.
On Peter's desk is a familiar vehicle - it's a model version of the Jeep that Lara drives in 'Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation'.
