** They live in the remains of their former city, so it's probably just a remnant.

** The classic series was always very sloppy about scientific terminology - for a show that includes space as a setting, the writers didn't seem to know the difference between a planetary (stellar or "solar" system) and a galaxy, for one thing. It was often hard to tell if they meant stellar system(s), a/the galaxy/galaxies, or the universe, as all three terms would be thrown about more or less as it pleased them.

Given that, it's not surprising if they didn't know the difference between robotics, cybernetics, and bionics.

** Possibly they choose to keep a few relics of Kaled life around, like a museum. Believing the Thals extinct, they'd need something to keep the hatred which is their sole motivation for existence stirred up, and reminding themselves of the lifestyle those despicable Thals' war took away from them could help with that.

*** Sutekh probably also wanted to head directly to where the ''Doctor'' was most likely to return to Earth, since if anyone still had a chance of stopping the Last Osiran, it's him. Sutekh meant to ambush and kill the Time Lord, but forgot about the time-delay of the transport beam.

** Maybe it's just not ''water'' ice. Svartos could have hydrodynamics based on a different liquid that freezes at shorts-and-short-sleeve temperature.

** Watsonian answer: The Doctor did it, back in [[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWho011TheApocalypseElement "The Apocalypse Element"]], using the only human eye on Gallifrey, Evelyn's, to lock the Daleks out of the Gallifreyan systems. Doylist answer: Obviously, at the time they meant the half-human revelation seriously, so it works for the Doctor's quote-unquote half-human eye and thus for fully-human eyes. No, with the quick abandoning of the half-human thing, it doesn't make sense on its own, which is why Big Finish patched it in passing.

* Why, for heaven's sake, Eye of Harmony from TARDIS open to the human eye? When people arguing about The Doctor being half-human, then they point on that scene, but no one ask why Eye of Harmony open to the human eye/human DNA in the first place? This gallifreyan/time-lord technology...
