- The first story in this anthology, Blood on Santa's Claw, was first released free to subscribers to the Big Finish newsletter on 4 December 2019.
- According to the interviews, Nev Fountain did write the first three stories in the anthology, on top of the final story for which he was explicitly credited. The names listed as writers for the first three stories are plays on the words "alter-ego", "pseudonym" and "alias", respectively. This decision was made to create the impression that this was a regular anthology with four standalone stories, when in fact they are connected by a retroactive plot twist, explained in the final episode.
