- Troubled Production: The episode was hit with a pre-production snag when Tim Price, who created the Monster of the Week Pting and who was part of the Series 11 writers' room, proved to be unable to write the episode. With no replacement script, showrunner Chris Chibnall was forced to write the finished script himself despite having five other scripts to write and a series to manage. This resulted in an episode that was tepidly received by viewers as dull and uneventful. Whether Price's version of the script would have been better will probably never be known, although he is still credited with the creation of the Pting.
