This story threw a [[ContinuitySnarl colossal spanner]] into the works of dating the UNIT stories, since during the 1970s it had been strongly implied that the stories from "The Invasion" to "The Web of Fear" had been set a few years into the future compared to their broadcast dates. (this would finally get cleared up in 2013, when it was revealed that [[AuthorsSavingThrow UNIT has various dating protocols]].) The sad thing is, this was ''totally'' unnecessary -- the serial was originally to feature First Doctor companion Ian Chesterton as the returning companion, but when his actor was unavailable it was changed to the Brig. Though it was suggested that the script change its scripted dates from 1977 and 1983 to 1983 and 1989 to avoid continuity errors producer Creator/JohnNathanTurner refused simply because he thought it'd be cool to set the earlier part of the story in the Queen's silver jubilee year.

Added DiffLines:

* SameCharacterButDifferent: The Brigadier appears in a story that was originally intended for science teacher Ian. The solution? Remove all references to Ian, and make the Brigadier a maths teacher.
