* RealLifeWritesTheHairstyle: Louise Jameson claims the reason her hair is done up in this story is because a BBC hairstylist had mistakenly cut six inches off her hair just prior to filming. Her final scene in the story was filmed some five weeks after this incident, by which time her hair had grown long enough to allow her to wear it down for a single scene.
* ThrowItIn: Leela kissing Adam Colby on the cheek was ad-libbed by Louise Jameson. The surprised look on his face is genuine.

* TributeToFido: Creator/ChrisBoucher took inspiration from the work of archaeologist Louis Leakey, who had been excavating human remains for many years until his death in 1972. Boucher named Colby's dog Leakey as a tribute to him, although he later realised that people would miss the reference and assume the name came because "he pissed all over everything!" Creator/TerranceDicks' subsequent novelisation of the serial in fact gives both reasons for the name.
