Did You Know?

A scene was cut showing a time-frozen Ackerman enjoying a romantic liaison with Miss Patricia Carling, while wearing a Batman outfit. For clearance reasons, the costume was unable to be shown.

The "Archie" material was another set of scenes excised from Cassandra and repurposed here. A final scene in which the artificial todger found a final resting place somewhere about Captain Hollister's person was filmed, but unused.

Unlike the second and third parts of Back in the Red, the recap sequence here takes place before the opening titles, echoing the style of opening used several times in Series VII.

Gary Martin, the titular voice of Series VII's Epideme, recorded the voice of a vending machine for the one-part version of this episode - but when it was expanded to two, the scene was re-shot without the machine.
