- Creator's Favorite Episode: Jacqueline Pearce was unhappy with the final season, claiming that it ran out of steam and ideas. That said, she named this as her favourite episode of the entire series.
- What Could Have Been: Tarrant's role was originally written for Avon.
- You Look Familiar: Peter Craze, who appears as the doomed crewmember, previously played Prell.
