  • New Zealand sent its film prints of this serial to Singapore on 20 September 1972. The sale to Singapore was actually "back-catalogue", as they had already started screening Jon Pertwee stories by this time.
  • Sierra Leone sent its prints back to the BBC in 1974.
  • A print of episode four - "The Final Test" - was found in the ABC's film library in early 1984, and was returned to the BBC on 13 February. The print was missing the "NEXT EPISODE: A HOLIDAY FOR THE DOCTOR" caption. This was because the ABC often chopped out the "NEXT EPISODE" captions from the final episodes because they would sometimes screen serials out of sequence during subsequent repeat runs.
