Notes[edit | edit source]
- As a reference to the UNIT dating controversy, the exact timeframe of the story is never revealed, with the Doctor musing that it is either the 1970s or the 1980s.
- This is the first, and as of 2017, only, officially licensed story that features the Ninth Doctor and Brigadier meeting. It was previously established that, like every other incarnation of the Doctor, the Ninth would be present for the Brigadier's funeral. (PROSE: Shroud of Sorrow) This makes the ninth incarnation the latest to do so, leaving only his war and eleventh incarnations the exceptions.
Continuity[edit | edit source]

- This story takes place immediately after COMIC: The Transformed.
- The Doctor complains that Harry Sullivan has created another weapon. Previously, Harry created a gas poisonous to Zygons. (TV: Terror of the Zygons)
