Spoilers are precisely defined here. Rules vary by the story's medium. Info from television stories can't be added here until after the top or bottom of the hour, British time, closest to the end credits roll on BBC One. Therefore, fans in the Americas who are sensitive to spoilers should avoid Tardis on Sundays until they've seen the episode.
Dexter is only after the treasures and is killed, but the Eocenes are seeking peaceful co-existence with the humans. Warren agrees to stay so they may exchange cultures and Sarah is given free passage to return home to negotiate their terms.
Sarah is optimistic after speaking with the Brigadier. UNIT this time round seems more sympathetic.
This comic strip story is respectfully dedicated to Malcolm Hulke.
The Silurians are correctly referred to as Eocenes because of the period from which they date.
In the comic strip, K9 makes reference to The Daily Telegraph report of 12 April 1929 which tells how an Antarctica expedition was lost following their claim to have found a lost city of intelligent reptiles.
The entrance to the tunnels is rich in hieroglyphics that predate Zoser (2650 BC) yet are more recent.
Artist Vincent Danks includes K9 in a couple of fun, tongue-in-cheek visual gags that don't make a great deal of sense. For instance, we see K9 reading the book, The Adventures of Lassie, without particularly indicating how K9 might have turned the pages. Given K9 Mark II's continual insistence that he was not a dog, it is unclear why K9 Mark III would have been particularly interested in a dog story like Lassie. Later, in Egypt, K9 is shown wearing an adventurer's pith helmet.
For the purposes of this list, a "Homo Reptilian story" is one in which one living, authentic Silurian or Sea Devil plays a part within the confines of the story, outside of flashbacks to previous stories and cliffhangers that lead into the following story. Stories like Frontier in Space, The Pandorica Opens and The Wedding of River Song are also not included due to Homo Reptilians' cameos being of little consequence to the plot of the story. Stories featuring MadamVastra of the Paternoster Gang are only included on the Paternoster Gang story template.
