As far as I know this is the only classic Doctor Who serial filmed entirely on location and it works to the story's advantage.
The Curse of Fenric was as well.
Wasn't Spearhead from Space shot entirely on location as well?
Yes, due to a strike at television centre (over pay rates for using the new colour cameras. Something similar happened at ITV, which is why some episodes of Upstairs Downstairs, Budgie and Timeslip were shot with the old black and white cameras).

In addition,there's Silver Nemesis and Survival. Delta and the Bannerman cheats with a single console room scene shot during Dragonfire, and the same goes for Greatest Show in the Galaxy (which was otherwise shot in a tent in a BBC car park).
