Malcolm Hulke and David Ellis' original pitch was called The Big Store, which involved aliens who had taken over a London department store and were using it as a front for their invasion of Earth. One group of aliens was a faceless breed, artificially given human features in order to replace people kidnapped in the store. It was decided that an airport would be a better setting.
