Deviations from televised story Edit
- The sonic screwdriver appears quite a few times in this story, whereas on television it was not introduced until the later adventure Fury from the Deep.
- The Commandant is referred to on several occasions as "the Manager", with "Commandant" being a nickname rather than a title.
- The Director states that processed humans die and the transference becomes permanent in four weeks, explaining why the originals of the Chameleon Tours staff are left behind at Gatwick.
