  • Epilogue


  • Rather than have a model layout of the aqueduct, the Sensorites provide a holographic map for Susan to direct Barbara and John whilst she talks telepathically.
  • Whilst Ian urges Maitland to hasten cutting open to the door in order to get to Barbara and Susan, he utters the words “For God’s sake man!”. Any words used in a family show at the time would never have been allowed.
  • The humans are part of an extremist group called INNER.
