] Although Lesley Scott is credited as a co-writer, she does not appear to have done any actual work on the scripts. Her then-husband, Paul Erickson requested that she be given a credit, but her name appears on no other related documents [Pixley, Andrew, "Doctor Who Archive: "The Ark"," "Doctor Who Magazine", #228, 2 August 1995, Marvel Comics UK, Ltd., p. 26.] . Despite this, Scott was credited as a contributor to the "Dr. Who Annual"s published by World Distributors/World International [Pixley, Andrew, "The Ark": Archive Extra," "Doctor Who Magazine Special Edition", #7, 12 May 2004 ("The Complete First Doctor"), Panini Comics, p. 73.] .

The Monoids were played by actors, each holding a ping-pong ball in his mouth to represent the alien's single eye. The upper portion of the actor's face was hidden by a Beatle wig.

This serial features a guest appearance by Michael Sheard. (See also Celebrity appearances in Doctor Who.)
