    • The master copy of this episode was wiped in or shortly after September 1969. A 16mm telerecording of the episode was recovered from Nigeria in 2013.

    • In this episode Colonel Lethbridge-Stewart suggests the need for creating an international taskforce to defend Earth in the event of alien invasions. When next we meet him Lethbridge-Stewart has not only been promoted to Brigadier, but he has been put in command of the newly-created UNIT, the very taskforce he envisioned.

    • A third Yeti story was planned, but when the BBC used Quarks from The Dominators in merchandising and comic strips without consulting writers Mervyn Haisman and Henry Lincoln, they cut off their ties to the show completely. The final defeat of the Intelligence thus had to wait for Downtime, a straight-to-video production in 1995 by independent Dreamwatch Media.
