Background information[]

  • In the scripts, of the three hovercraft men, Anton was described as "the eldest [of the three men], a thick-set, greying man" while Tibor (later re-named Rod) was "a quiet tall man" and Otto (renamed Curly) was "much the same age as Tibor - in his twenties ... athletic looking, rather wild and unrestrained."
  • The camera script for Episode 1 also had Giles Kent and Astrid Ferrier discuss more victims of Salamander in dialogue omitted from the finished programme, Astrid comments that the drowned Michael Assevski was an Olympic Swimming Champion before Giles refers to the murdered John Freremont of the British Zone and Scandinavian Zone Controller Lars Helvig who apparently committed suicide. Colin Redmayne was described as "an alert young man, in his middle twenties"; Swann was "a dedicated intense man" and Mary was "a girl in her twenties, pale, determined."
  • An early synopsis of the serial referred to events at Astrid's "cottage" in Episode 1 , with the episode concluding at "Giles Kent's home" and stating that Kent "was once one of Salamander's commanders." In Episode 2, Bruce "tries to telephone to Salamander in Zone Two" where Denes is the Leader and Fedorin is the Police Chief; Fariah is a "girl guard" and Victoria also works in headquarters as a guard with Jamie. In Episode 4 it was indicated that Salamander caused the death of Fariah's brothers.
