Other Information Edit
- "Holiday" in British comic publishing terms means "summer", as in the phrase "school holiday" or "summer holiday". Hence, this issue is often colloquially called the "1992 Summer Special".
- This special was staple bound with new cover artwork (and poster), priced £2.50 (UK).
- "The Roving Reporter" sticks to the chronology established in a previous UNIT Special, and established Sarah Jane Smith's birth date as 1955 and the "UNIT Era" as happening in the near future, with Terror of the Zygons happening in 1980. The short stories included in the Special adhere to this timeline. However The Sarah Jane Adventures story Whatever Happened to Sarah Jane? contradicts this. The article also apparently makes reference to the G.I. Joe universe, saying that Sarah Jane helped to uncover Cobra cells.
