- The total length of the serial is forty-five minutes, or roughly the length of a standard live-action episode.
- Unlike The Infinite Quest, Dreamland was rendered in computer generated CGI in a pose to pose style animation method.
- Voice actor Lisa Bowerman is best known for playing Bernice Summerfield in the Big Finish Productions audio dramas, for which she currently directs productions. She was also a guest star in the 1989 serial Survival as Karra.
- Acording to the Christmas Eve commentary, the first episode was originally two, with the cliffhanger being Colonel Stark preparing to use the mindwipe chamber, however it was later edited into a double length episode.
- The DVD and TV repeats use the 45 minute version, however, the six part version was available to watch on the Doctor Who website.
- When Cassie and Jimmy are driving, they seem to be on the left side of the road even before they are distracted. As Americans, they should habitually try to drive on the right.
- The colonel salutes with his left hand near the end, where almost all salutes are normally right handed.
- The Doctor dislikes being saluted by Colonel Stark. (The Sontaran Stratagem, Planet of the Dead)
