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. 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.

* AntiVillain: Mawdryn and his pals are all Type II.

to:

* AntiVillain: Mawdryn and his pals are aren't evil by any means, they just want an end to their FateWorseThanDeath. That being said, Mawdryn has no problem with the idea of the Doctor being forced to use up all Type II.his regenerations to help them die, and while he makes it clear that he didn't mean to infect Nyssa and Tegan, he certainly doesn't consider the result to be a bad thing.

The Doctor struggles to control the time fluctuations, as it washes back and forth over his companions and regresses Nyssa and Tegan to child-Nyssa and child-Tegan. Even though they are, basically, the cutest things ever (certainly the most adorable companions until [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E01TheEleventhHour wee Amelia]]), the Doctor prepares to sacrifice himself to save them... but the colossal energy that ''was'' to come from the Doctor's eight deaths comes instead from 1977-Brig and 1983-Brig meeting up at last and shorting out the time differential. 1983-Brig remembers just what caused his nervous breakdown. They drop the Brigs off in their respective times, and the Doctor continues on -- with Turlough added to the crew, over Nyssa and Tegan's weary looks.
