* MrSmith: Made into a plot point a few times over, notably in [[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWho006TheMarianConspiracy "The Marian Conspiracy"]]. It becomes a hugely important concept in [[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWho049Master "Master"]], which basically asks the question: "what if ''[[Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures Human Nature]]'' had happened to the Master?". It has the Master living as "Dr. John Smith", and the Doctor realising with increasing horror all the ways in which he and his archenemy are NotSoDifferent.

* ThatPoorCat: PlayedForDrama in "Master". The entire episode is an elaborate InternalHomage to the ''Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures'' novel ''Human Nature'', which introduced the Seventh Doctor's pet cat, Wolsey. In "Master", there's also a cat, which [[spoiler: gets ripped open halfway through]].

** Nev Fountain, who's dating Peri's actress Nicola Bryant, is generally considered the best Peri writer in any medium. His stories are generally LighterAndSofter (but with some memorable moments of MoodWhiplash), all feature Nicola in some capacity (sans ''[[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWho047Omega Omega]]'') and feature unusual [[TheTwist twist]] villains ([[spoiler: [[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWho047Omega Not-actually-the-Fifth Doctor]], [[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWho081TheKingmaker William Shakespeare]] and [[YouWillBeBeethoven an unlucky]] [[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWhoCCS5E7PeriAndThePisconParadox Sixth Doctor]] being notable examples]])

** This format of collector's edition has been used more and more frequently with special releases, with such specials as the spin-off IntercontinuityCrossover "The Worlds of Doctor Who," the Sixth Doctor GrandFinale "The Last Adventure," and the first volume of the new Tenth Doctor Adventures. Even non-Doctor Who works are getting the treatment, such as the first volume of of the Big Finish adaptation of ''ThePrisoner.''

* BowtiesAreCool: Through some fiddling around with trademarks and a cooperation with [=AudioGo=], the episode [[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWhoDOTD2ShadowOfDeath "Shadow Of Death"]] saw the Second Doctor catching a brief glimpse of Eleven, and the two of them communicating through a psychic note. Two is really quite pleased with how he'll turn out, particularly the fetching bowtie.

* ContinuityNod: Each audio opens with the appropriate theme for each Doctor.[[note]] In the Sixth Doctor's case, stories set pre-Trial of a Time Lord get the 1980-1985 theme, post-ToaTL stories get that theme.[[/note]] The exception is Eight; as the rights to the TV Movie theme are held by a separate entity, a new theme was composed. The War Doctor gets his own theme for his audios.

** [[Franchise/BerniceSummerfield Benny Summerfield]] introduces a whole lot of snarls. She debuted in the New Adventures, then took over that series as the lead character, leading to some WritingAroundTrademarks when the Doctor was mentioned. Then she got one of the first Big Finish series, some of which adapted the books, but without the Doctor involved. They also involve her boss, Braxiatel. Then she meets Bev, who's come over from the mainstream Big Finish Seventh Doctor continuity. And Braxiatel appears in the ''Gallifrey'' series, again in the mainstream continuity. Then Big Finish adapt some of the novels as part of the BS series, but featuring the Doctor again. Even better, a recent New Series Adventure features the ''Twelfth Doctor'' meeting Benny. And more recent prose stories indicate Benny remembers ''Just War'' happening ''both'' ways (one with the Doctor and one without)! And of course, she's met Iris Wildthyme, who messes up everybody's continuity, just for laughs.

More recent prose stories indicate Benny Benny's timeline is so twisted now she remembers ''Just War'' happening ''both'' ways (one (once with the Doctor and one without)! once with Jason)! And of course, she's met Iris Wildthyme, who messes up everybody's continuity, gleefully tramples over ideas like "continuity" just for laughs.
