    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Revealing Mistake: When Yates breaks James's conditioning, the latter falls against the wall, which shakes.

      • Revealing Mistake: When Benton rescues Cliff and Jo, the ground shakes and flexes since it is a built-up set to conceal the maggot operators beneath.

      • Other Goofs: The Doctor resists BOSS's programming by calculating Pi. He recites the first five numbers and continues silently. But he gets it wrong, giving the first five digits as 3.1416. This is only correct if Pi is rounded off after five digits. The correct sequence would be 3.14159265…

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Stevens: In the end, we all want the same thing: an ordered society with everyone happy, well-fed…
        The Doctor: Global Chemicals taking all the profits.
        Stevens: What's best for Global Chemicals is best for the world, is best for you!
        The Doctor: Such as a little touch of brainwashing?
        Stevens: Freedom from fear, freedom from pain…
        The Doctor: Freedom from freedom!

    • NOTES (1)

      • Elgin's role and lines are taken over by Mr. James (Roy Skelton) in this episode. This was because actor Tony Adams became severely ill before the last studio recording block and was unable to film his last two scenes.
