It was made with the support of the Spanish Doctor Who fan society Asociación Planeta Gallifrey to commemorate the 50th anniversary, premièring on 30th November 2013 at Doctor Who Day in Barcelona and at Tea&TARDIS in Madrid.

Their video channel contains several extras, including a short prequel (also with English subtitles) and a trailer.
