Global Conspiracy? was a tongue-in-cheek minisode, where an investigative reporter interviewed people about the events of the television story The Green Death.
Despite its apparently parodic nature, it introduced the concept of BOSS and Stevens having survived the events of The Green Death, something which has been concurred by other stories, meaning this does indeed appear to be valid.

- Llanfairfach is twinned with Mortverte, France, and Grunertod, Germany—both of which translate to "Green Death" in English.
- A report by Sarah Jane Smith entitled "Green Man Horror" was published by the Newport Echo after Gordon Williams found toxic waste in his drain. Another article reads, "Packer Dies! Horribly!!"
- A top secret file from UNIT, dated 17 June 1973, about the "Llanfairfach Incident", which was a level three incident, has been made public. The document mentions Clifford Jones, Brigadier Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart, Josephine Grant and UNIT's mysterious scientific adviser, Dr John Smith.
- Terry brings up the marriage of Cliff Jones and Jo Grant.
- Cliff Jones is now chairman of Nuthutch Foods, which he says he developed in the 1980s, and which produces vegetarian meat-free products under the label Nuthutch.
- These products include a chicken style roast and fungus cannelloni, whose ingredients include tomatoes, herbs, mushrooms, mould, "that strange lump of something on the stairs in that run-down house [...]" and egg pasta.
- Eventually he and Jo drifted apart, still in the 70s, due to the Metebelis crystal which in The Green Death the Doctor had given Jo as a wedding present. Jo returned it to the Doctor in Planet of the Spiders.
- Towards the end of the events, Mark Elgin had appendix problems, and so was at the Newport General Hospital at the incident's culmination. In the real world, Mark's actor, Tony Adams, was also in fact ill and in hospital before the filming of episode 5, so he had to be replaced with a new character called James.
- Jocelyn Stevens is now Director-General of the BBC.
