Mary Whitehouse complained so much about the scene of the Doctor being drowned that the BBC re-edited the scene on the master copy in case it was ever shown again (though it's been restored now from overseas copies)

This is the only story throughout the shows run where every character belongs to the same race

Part of the concept for the story is supposedly based on The Manchurian Candidate.

I've never read the book or seen that film, but I have heard it's excellent. Didn't they remake it a while back?

This story is the first to be set entirely on Gallifrey

I've not read the book but the original film is excellent. Angela Lansbury, especially. The remake was ok, but not as good.
