Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Stephen Cole admits in the Author's Notes that part of the reason he wrote this novel was to defend the Doctor's scientific reputation after the Fourth Doctor expressed surprise at Jupiter having thirteen moons (TV: Revenge of the Cybermen) when that fact was inaccurate when the storyline originally aired (scientists having discovered another moon after production finished but before it was broadcast).
