Cancelled story ideaEdit
It was originally planed for a pack of Future predator to invade a sports centre but the story was changed when Tim Haines did not want the Future Predators in season 7 so changed the idea and write Sarah Page back into the show.
The episode drew immediate controversy when it aired due to its graphic content, with particular focus on the Haast eagle graphically killing a toddler, with more than 50,000 complaints sent to Ofcom mere days after broadcast. Writer Robert Shearman stated he wanted to show "the ultimate worst-case scenario for the ARC; a tangible reminder that innocent bystanders can and do get hurt in what the ARC does". Executive producer Tim Haines stated he "understood why people were shocked" and commented on the complaints as being indicative of the demographics of the audience:
"The whole response, to me, is a very interesting commentary on demographics, with our (probably) very die-hard core fan community very clearly demanding a darker tone, while our broader viewership were shocked by the dark content. It's interesting as to how you balance it."
