  • Creator Backlash: Chris Boucher has said that he "hated the music. The incidental music wasn't appropriate and it didn't have the style and feeling it should have had".
  • Screwed by the Network: The series was plagued with conflicts between creator/writer Chris Boucher and producer Evgeny Gridneff. Two different directors and complete production teams were used to make the nine episodes (Team-A produced episodes 1 & 2, Team-B 3, 4 & 5, Team-A 6, 7, 8 & 9). Each team had its own designer, and very different ideas about how the series should look, leading to jarring continuity problems. Finally, the program was broadcast on a weird schedule that did not co-ordinate with the BBC's other programming (it clashed with BBC1's flagship Nine O'Clock News for example).

  • Unfinished Episode: A tenth episode, titled "Death on the Moon", written by Philip Martin, was planned but industrial relations difficulties during production led to it being abandoned shortly before recording was to commence.
  • What Could Have Been: Chris Boucher felt that were the series to continue he would like to extend the setting further out into the Solar System, visiting the Mars colonies and the Big Ring space colonies under construction. He intended to achieve this either by transferring one of the existing regular characters to the Mars colony or by introducing a new regular who would be based there.
