Story notes Edit

  • Search Out Space was included as an extra on the DVD of Survival.
  • The Doctor and his companions were invited to appear on a quiz show in the short story Storm in a Tikka, which bridges this story with the events of the television story Dimensions in Time.
  • If one considers this a "Doctor Who story," its transmission in 1990 means that there were 27 years of Doctor Who televised stories instead of 26.
  • Search Out Space is one of four non-spin-off Doctor Who on screen stories from the 1990s, the others being Dimensions in Time, the TV Movie, Destiny of the Doctors and Introduction to the Night.
