1----* ActingForTwo: Not only do both Michael Wisher and Roy Skelton qualify for this by virtue of each playing several different Daleks, Skelton also plays the Spiridon Wester, along with the unnamed Spiridon who captures Vaber and delivers him to the Daleks.* CreatorBacklash: Creator/BarryLetts makes clear on the DVD commentary that he was ''really'' unhappy with the model Dalek army that's seen in this story. He also wasn't too happy with the sets used for the interior of the Dalek city, though conceded that there probably wasn't the money in the budget to do both the city and the jungle justice.* PropRecycling: The Dalek Supreme in this story was a modified prop from ''Film/DaleksInvasionEarth2150AD'' that had been given to Creator/TerryNation. Its eyestalk has been replaced with a conventional torch, which flashes when it speaks.* RealLifeWritesTheHairstyle: Creator/KatyManning's hair is shorter in the studio sessions than it is in location footage. Manning had her hair cut between the two lots of recording. * RecycledScript: Creator/TerryNation rehashed [[Recap/DoctorWhoS1E2TheDaleks "The Daleks"]]. It contains some of the same plot devices, including: a group of Daleks in a city encountering the Thals on a ravaged planet; a deadly plague instead of a neutron bomb; someone using a Dalek shell as a disguise; the Doctor imprisoned in a cell and with paralysed legs; and the Daleks imprisoned in their city at the end of the story.* SparedByTheCut: Originally, Episode Five was to end with all of the Thal characters massacred by the Daleks. Creator/TerranceDicks, however, asked that Creator/TerryNation not include this plot point, as the series was beginning to be criticised for its violent content.* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Latep was originally named Petal. This was changed to avoid confusion with Patel from "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS10E3FrontierInSpace Frontier in Space]]".* WorkingTitle: ''Destination Daleks''.* YouLookFamiliar: Bernard Horsfall (Taron) had previously appeared as "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS6E2TheMindRobber Lemuel Gulliver]]" and as the [[Recap/DoctorWhoS6E7TheWarGames "First Time Lord"]].----
