to be added
- This story was recorded at The Moat Studios.
- The events of this story were teased in Last of the Cybermen, which was released only months earlier.
- For the three travellers, this story takes place a few days after the Cyber-invasion of Earth. (TV: The Invasion)
- Jamie is reminded of the London Underground and the Yeti. (TV: The Web of Fear)
- Jamie remembers encountering another Cyber-Controller in their tombs on Telos. (TV: The Tomb of the Cybermen)
- Jamie later recalled facing the Cybermen on Isos when he encountered the Sixth Doctor. (AUDIO: Last of the Cybermen)
- The Cyber-Controller accesses the repository of cyber-experiences (PROSE: Iceberg) and sees the Doctor as a white-haired old man. (TV: The Tenth Planet) This reference raises additional questions as to the decade that the UNIT stories are set in, as the First Doctor's encounter with the Cybermen takes place in 1986, yet this story takes place only days after the Second Doctor's latest encounter with them. (TV: The Invasion)
