* CreatorBacklash: While his overall opinion of the story was quite positive despite its notoriously unforgiving shooting schedule, director Peter Grimwade absolutely ''hated'' Malcolm Clarke's incidental score for the episode, and tried to get Peter Howell, whom Grimwade had worked with on "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS19E3Kinda Kinda]]" earlier that season, to provide a replacement. Howell wasn't available, however, resulting in the story retaining Clarke's score.

Another idea was going to have some visible fluids in the tubes.
