\n* AllThereInTheScript: AllThereInTheManual: The human abducted so that Meglos can possess his body "abducted earthling" of the televised story is unnamed given a name in the original TV dialogue and credits, and only named as novelisation George Morris in [[Literature/DoctorWhoNovelisations and backstory as an assistant bank manager. His abduction by the novelisation]].Gaztaks, whom he believes at first are students carrying out one of their Rag Week pranks, is shown in the opening pages.
** The novelisation makes it clear the "Gaztak" is a broad term for mercenary bands, not referring only to Grugger's group.
** The novel answers the question of how Meglos' species would be able to advance technologically as immobile cacti by their ability to take over the minds of other beings, implying that, despite what was shown, they are able to do it without technological adjuncts.
** The novelisation ends with George Morris returning to Earth.
