* WaxingLyrical: In the Fifth/Seventh team-up ''Cold Fusion'', Chris Cwej is posing as an Australian, and describes living in a close-knit community in a sunny suburb, where everyone pops in and out of each others' houses, before concluding "With a little understanding, you can find the perfect blend and that's when good neighbours become good friends". Real Australian Tegan doesn't get the reference, having come from a time before ''{{Neighbours}}'' began, but does spot he's talking nonsense.

* CaptainErsatz: Dave Stone, a regular writer for JudgeDredd comics, wanted to do an IntercontinuityCrossOver by Dredd. After his denial by Dredd's copyright holders, he went ahead and wrote ''Burning Heart'', in which the Sixth Doctor joins forces with a super-strict future cop with a face-concealing helmet on a futuristic motorcycle who goes by the nickname Stoneface. He even looks like Dredd in the cover painting. Conveniently, the Guild of Adjudicators established in the New Adventures was ''already'' pretty much the Mega-City One Justice Department.

* ComicBookFantasyCasting: Similar to his method of "casting" [[HouseOfCards Ian Richardson]] in pretty much all of his Series/DoctorWho novels, Lance Parkin goes even further in ''Cold Fusion''. The characters Provost-General Tertullian Medford and Chief Scientist Whitfield are meant to be "played" by Terry Scott and June Whitfield, stars of 1980s sitcom ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terry_and_June Terry and June]]''!

Since the line was intended to provide adventures that more-or-less easily slotted into gaps in previous television eras, the Missing Adventures generally tended to be less experimental in nature than the New Adventures, but they still often adopted the more adult and DarkerAndEdgier nature of the other novel range.
