The Dinosaur effects were created by the same team that had just completed the now-legendary Walking with Dinosaurs (1999) TV series. In addition, the Entelodont from Walking with Prehistoric Beasts (2001) makes an appearance.

Professor Challenger talks to Summerlee about his life as a young boy, that he was raised by his parents under the Bible. Then as he became more interested in Science, his father had "lost" him. This is similar to his creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and his own religious experiences. He too, was a scientist that was raised Catholic and became more supportive of Spiritualism.

Goofs
Near the beginning of the film, in the lobby of the Natural History Museum, the tail of the Diplodocus skeleton is raised up off the ground. The film is set in 1911, but that skeleton had a dragging tail until it was remounted in 1993.

Quotes
Prof. George Challenger: [Professor Summerlee has just had a bitter argument with Reverend Kerr over evolution: Professor Challanger has kept silent and divulged that his parents were deeply religous] Professor Challenger: One day I went to my father and asked him for a microscope. I can still remember the sadness in his eyes; he knew he had lost me then. But without even knowing it he had given me an even greater gift. He taught me humility in the face of nature. I don't know if there is a god; but I know man is no substitute if there isn't.
