  • Only serials A to L were dubbed for the Arabic language.
  • In the Spanish dub, the Animus spoke with a male voice, whereas in the original English, it was female'.
  • In the Spanish edition of part six, the "Next Episode" was given as "EL LON" to match the caption - and yet The Crusade did not scree in any Spanish-language countries.
  • The print of part six that the BBC retained until 1984 had a different "Next Episode" caption that read "THE SPACE MUSEUM". It was thoiught thatt his chnage was done because The Crusade was not sold to Muslin countries, due to the story's content and subject matter. But since The Crusae was not sold outside of the Commonwealth, the caption must have been changed for other reasons...
  • A complete print of part six with the original caption was recovered from Nigeria in the mid-1980s.
  • The serial screened in the United States from September 1985 as a NTSC conversion. Canada screened the serial in the 1990s. New Zealand and Sweden also later aired the serial in the early 2000s.
