Additional Notes:

»

As the power station is private, photos could only be taken from outside; the shot selected was used as you can make out the circular structure and the building next to it.

A comparison of how the power station looks now on the premises themselves can be found on The Claws Of Axos DVD.

This is at the end of Dungeness Road, beside the old lighthouse.

Ironically, the scene - at the end of episode four - is the UNIT landrover pulling up a safe distance away from the power station ... but in reality it is directly behind the camera!
