* [[DuelingWorks Dueling Shows]]: Creator/{{ITV}} premiered ''Series/BuckRogersInThe25thCentury'' directly opposite the first episode, after a high-profile promotional campaign. ITV had never previously attempted to compete with ''Doctor Who'' by scheduling science fiction in that slot before, and its change of policy in 1980 is credited as being a major factor in the significant slump in ratings seen for the early stories in Doctor Who's eighteenth season. Not only did small audiences watch the first episode, but figures dropped each week. By week three, ''Doctor Who'' did something it hadn't done in eighteen years: it fell out of the top hundred programmes for the week it was transmitted.

* TroubledProduction: Production of the serial was extremely challenging. Creator/TomBaker and Lalla Ward's tumultuous off-screen relationship was at a nadir, causing the mood on set to be distinctly chilly. Director Lovett Bickford's management of the shoot caused it to go so badly over budget that Creator/JohnNathanTurner was severely reprimanded by his superiors. Bickford would never work on the series again.
