      DEVIATIONS FROM THE TELEVISED STORY

    • Jo is given greater respect from the First Doctor than in the television story.
    • the Second Doctor speaks to the the man from the ministry in person rather than on videophone.
    • An original sequence features the Brigadier, Jo and Benton fruitlessly trying to fortify UNIT.
    • The last name of Arthur Ollis is changed to Arthur Hollis.
    • There is a Young Time Lord in the novel that was not present in the story.
    • The Gel guards are named as Blob men.
    • The Blob men, as Terrance Dicks described them, appear to have arms and legs and a sort of head. This is different from the story, as in the story, they are blobs of jelly with a claw.
    • The blob men are more advanced in the novel. An example is when Benton blows one apart, the legs keep running before finally, the legs fall down.
    • Mrs. Ollis (Hollis in this novel) has the first name of Mary.
