Doomwatch is the nickname for the Department of Measurement of Scientific Work.

Trivia

Robert Powell decided to leave the series and not to return in season 2 and it was decided that Tobias Wren was to be killed off by being in an explosion in the season 1 finale Doomwatch: Survival Code (1970) (TV Series). See more »

Goofs

There was seemingly no set continuity for the scenery crew when dressing the studio between recordings. Consequently the three prominent mushroom cloud photographs in Quist's office during the first two seasons regularly swap position between episodes. See more »
