- Follow-Up Failure: Terrance Dicks and Barry Letts were coming off a highly successful run on Doctor Who.
- Missing Episode: All the tapes of it were destroyed, and the program became semi-mythical to science fiction fans. Twenty years later, NTSC copies of the program were found at an American PBS affiliate and made available in DVD format.
- Old Shame: Terrance Dicks felt that the series was ultimately a failure: "The trouble was we built a too restrictive format for ourselves" and that the series "lacked a sense of wonder and outrageousness".
