* AllThereInTheManual: In the novelisation, the Doctor describes the use of message pods as a system used for a "real emergency" and that the "Time Lords' code" compels him to deliver it.
** In addition to the stone tablets seen onscreen, the message pod also contains parchment scrolls.
** Jaeger is given some backstory as being disgraced on Earth for stealing data from an academic colleague.
** Varan's son is given a name, Vorn.
** There is a secret passage underneath the Marshal's desk.
** The Marshal is given back story as having come to Skybase as a security guard and worked his way up the ranks, meaning he has no connections on Earth.



* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep - they really go for it in this story, with the Marshall, the Administrator and the Investigator. It's not just the humans - Varan's son doesn't get a name either (although he is given one - Vorn - in the [[Literature/DoctorWhoNovelisations novelisation]]).
