Textless cover art

  • This story was recorded at The Moat Studios.
  • Jon Culshaw's brief cameo appearance as the character in The Kingmaker notwithstanding, this is the first Big Finish audio drama to feature the Fourth Doctor.
  • The Doctor and K9 are absent from parts two and three.
  • Along with The Pyralis Effect, this is one of only two appearances of K9 Mark II in The Companion Chronicles.
  • There are multiple sly references to "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" series by Douglas Adams. ("tired TV executives", the Doctor buys Romana a towel, etc)
