Notes Edit

  • Notably, this is the only story in the Classic Doctors, New Monsters series that features enemies from the Classic era, as the Sontarans made their debut during the Third Doctor's tenure. However, this is justified by having these Sontarans be a clone batch from the Time War, an element of the New Series.
