Behind the scenes Edit
- The Prime Minister was called "Jeremy" by the Brigadier, referencing Liberal Party leader Jeremy Thorpe. During production, there was a close-call general election; the Doctor Who production team, operating on the assumption that the UNIT stories took place in the near future, were joking that Thorpe would be appointed Prime Minister. This did not happen in reality, though in real life he did suffer severe scandals.
