The story evolved out of an earlier, rejected script entitled Lungbarrow. It was to be set on Gallifrey in the Doctor's ancestral home and deal with the Doctor's past, but producer John Nathan-Turner felt it revealed too much of the Doctor's origins. It was reworked to make evolution and the idea of an ancient house central to the story.

I know this is not the topic of the thread but Lungbarrow is a sensational (and highly sought after) Virgin New Adventures Novel. I read and re-read this loads!

What's the point in changing the name? Or is that how it translates?
