David Richardson, the producer, stated that The Hollow King was intended to conclude the range, but its standalone nature and fan popularity led to further entries in the series in order to provide a better sense of closure. The Movellan Manoeuvre, together with its follow-up The Dalek Gambit, which was released on the same day, form a duology which serves as the overall conclusion to the Counter-Measures range.
