An oil refinery at the South Pole has discovered something that may revolutionise Earth's fuel problem. But death and destruction await.
Pg 8 The TARDIS isn't seen (except on the front cover), as the Doctor arrives by helicopter and leaves the same way.
A familiarity with Doctor Who and the Silurians and Warriors of the Deep wouldn't hurt.
Pg 11 "When he'd heard that there was to be a publicity launch, he'd pulled some strings at UNIT (Unified Intelligence Taskforce) to get out here." The Doctor worked with UNIT during his second, third and fourth incarnations.
Pg 17 "He was still dressed in nothing warmer than his tweed jacket." This is very similar to The Seeds of Doom, also set in the Antarctic, where the Doctor only wears his regular outfit at the South pole. But see Continuity Cock-Ups.
Pg 19 "You're as bad as those green activists from Wholeweal." The Green Death. Good to see they're still going strong, 40 years later.
Pg 21 Reference to Wholeweal.
Pg 23 Further reference to Wholeweal.
Pg 26 Final reference to Wholeweal.
Pg 27 "The Doctor reluctantly handed over his sonic screwdriver." Fury From the Deep et al.
Pg 29 "If they'd locked us in here with a packet of Jammie Dodgers, I might have believed Pelham was one of the good guys." Victory of the Daleks.
Pg 44 "It was a far bigger specimen than the last one that the Doctor had seen." Warriors of the Deep.
Pg 81 "The previous attempts at getting the two species to work together had ended in disaster." Doctor Who and the Silurians, Warriors of the Deep.
Pg 84 "The Doctor pressed a button on the console and the glass screen slid down. As the icy mist flooded the chamber the Doctor turned and walked back to the lift." This is very similar to effect seen in Cold Blood.
