Behind the scenes[]

At the time The Dæmons was produced, only two BBC television channels were in operation, the existence of a BBC 3 was intended to suggest a future timeframe (see UNIT dating controversy).

In the real world 1970s plans did exist for a third BBC analogue network, but were ultimately shelved in favour of the IBA's second network Channel 4.

In the script for the ultimately unproduced 1993 film The Dark Dimension, a BBC3 news reporter named Tony McCabe is said to have been killed at Oxford Circus.
