  • Trivia

    • This episode was based on one of the several stories Isaac Asimov wrote about Elijah "Lije" Baley, a kind of tough-guy 1940s-style detective operating in the far-off worlds of the distant future with the assistance of an android sidekick, Daneel Olivaw. This was the second time a Baley story had been adapted for BBC-2; in 1964, Asimov's novel, "The Caves Of Steel" had been dramatized for the "Story Parade" series, with Peter Cushing as Baley and John Carson as Daneel.
