Writer Alan Barnes based the Sontaran characters on the characters from the sitcom Dad's Army, and derived the characters' names from the names of the sitcom's actors: Field-Major Thurr from Arthur Lowe, Sergeant Mezz from John le Mesurier, Corporal Clunn from Clive Dunn, Pilot Bekk from James Beck, Trooper Vend from Ian Lavender, Trooper Jorr from John Laurie and Trooper Nold from Arnold Ridley. The story's dialogue deliberately includes catchphrases from Dad's Army such as "You stupid boy!"
- This is Big Finish's first use of the Sontarans.
- Nyssa encountered a Rutan in Castle of Fear.
- Nyssa mentions an important moment in the Doctor's future that she can't let him find out anything about. This is a reference to his regeneration, from her perspective, in Circular Time: Winter.
- Although Tegan met the Sontarans in the Jim'll Fix It segment, A Fix with Sontarans, it is not generally considered canonical.
