Although this issue credits Dez Skinn as the sole original editor, in fact, Skinn left Doctor Who Weekly at issue #22. This meant that, formally, Skinn was the editor up to part 4 of "The Star Beast", and Paul Neary took over from part 5. Neary has thus been given a credit here which he does not receive in this IDW reprinting.

Undoubtedly, however, Skinn was the primary editorial force behind this story, as it would likely have been on his desk almost in its entirety before he left.
