- During the original run of Doctor Who (1963–1989), Nicholas Courtney appeared opposite all of the Doctors except the Sixth. This audio fixes that omission. (Technically, they also meet—albeit briefly—in Dimensions in Time.) Courtney later appeared with the Eighth Doctor in Minuet in Hell, and with Tenth Doctor actor David Tennant in Sympathy for the Devil and UNIT: The Wasting (although Tennant was not playing The Doctor in these plays).
Several characters are mentioned by Emilia Rumford in Part Two of the televised story The Stones of Blood. Lexington-Smith is referenced and it may be assumed that Idwal Morgan, Professor of Megalithic Archaeology, is the character in this audio play.
Lanyon Moor also turns up in the opening moments of the first Tomorrow People audio.
