* AdaptationExpansion: The novelisation adds an opening sequence of a space battle between the Sontarans and Rutans.
** Cut scenes with Hal the Archer and the messenger boy are reinstated.
** Sarah's first trip in the TARDIS is depicted.
* AnachronismStew: It's implied that the action may be taking place pre-1066 ("Wessex," as a place name, was quickly dispensed with after the Norman Conquest), but the armor and weapons look to be anywhere between the 13 to 15th centuries. Plus peeling potatoes! Close investigation of the footage reveals that there are no potatoes in that scene. They do, however, appear in the Target novelisation demonstrating that [[Creator/TerranceDicks Terrance Dicks]] was right to study [[YouFailHistoryForever English]] at university!
