to be added
- Blon identifies the spaceship as Elyrian.
- Slitheen skin suits, and indeed Raxacoricovarlonpatorians within, can withstand getting run over by cars.
- Blon first thinks that Suzie is a UFO spotter, then that she's a collector of alien artefacts, and probably a conspiracy theorist as well. She asks Suzie if she has a tin foil hat.
- When Suzie uses a laptop, Blon remarks, "How CSI." She also wonders if the computer has solitaire.
- Blon's first hunt was in the dark.
- Owen Harper has a key to Suzie's home. When he calls, she tells him there's left-over pasta bake in her refrigerator, which he's welcome to eat.
- The pilot believes his ship was shot down by the Dorgon.
- The pilot promises to tell all of Elyria of the kindness of Earth's people, promptly before his death.
- Blon and Suzie contemplate friendship.
- Uniquely, the trailer for this story was presented by Indira Varma and Annette Badland in character as Suzie Costello and Blon Fel-Fotch Passameer-Day Slitheen respectively, as opposed to Big Finish executive producer Nicholas Briggs. After reciting the Big Finish slogan, We Love Stories, they both laugh maniacally.
- The image of Blon on the cover is infact a reuse of a promotional image depicting Kist Magg Thek Lutiven-Day Slitheen from TV: Revenge of the Slitheen.
