::In the DVD commentary for ''[[Frontier in Space]]'', [[Terrance Dicks]] says that the reference to the PM as female as an ad-lib by [[Nicholas Courtney]]; the BBC's website states this Prime Minister to be Shirley Williams [http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/classic/episodeguide/partypolitics.shtml], who was never a Labour Party leader in real life but was a notable member of the Cabinet.

:::Sorry, but that is nonsense. Margaret Thatcher became Leader of the Conservative Party in 1975. The next election was scheduled for 1979.

You can't blame Terror of the Zygons for a continuity blunder in a story made in 1983.
