Trivia

Writer Robert Holmes later reused elements of this story in the first Jon Pertwee Doctor Who (1963) story, Doctor Who: Spearhead from Space: Episode 1 (1970). Like this film, it was initially set in a remote English cottage hospital complete with a mysterious and unconscious alien stranger, puzzled doctors, an army patrol, and lurking alien forces in the nearby woods.
