With the exception of Episode 2, this entire story is missing from the BBC archives; notably, the sole reason Episode 2 survives is because it was recorded on 35mm film as opposed to the 2-inch quad videotape that was standard for BBC studio production at the time (35mm was typically reserved for [[VideoInsideFilmOutside location footage]] before smaller and cheaper 16mm equipment supplanted it in the late 60's, with ''Doctor Who'' having already made use of 16mm location shooting since [[Recap/DoctorWhoS5E6FuryFromTheDeep "Fury From the Deep"]]), motivating the network to protect the master negatives for the sake of historical preservation. Thankfully, these are the last missing episodes. Everything beyond this point exists, though not always in the originally recorded format. Also, this is the very first credited appearance of future producer Creator/JohnNathanTurner (credited just as "John Turner") in the production team, working as a floor assistant.

* OutOfFocus: The Doctor and his companions have noticeably less screentime and involvement in the plot than usual. The final episode has the curious distinction of being the only sixties episode (apart from "Mission to the Unknown") for which ''none'' of the regular cast were present for the studio recording, as they only appeared in pre-recorded inserts.
