* ComicBookFantasyCasting: Similar to his method of "casting" [[Series/HouseOfCardsUK 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]]''!



* CrossOver: With the [[Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures New Adventures]] in ''Cold Fusion''. It featured the Fifth Doctor, Adric, Nyssa and Tegan, along with the then current New Adventures team of the Seventh Doctor, Roz Forrester and Chris Cwej.



* GenteelInterbellumSetting: ''The English Way of Death''



* TwoRightsMakeAWrong: In ''Cold Fusion'', the Doctor does this to himself. There are some galaxy shattering grenades that can be disarmed by reversing the polarity of the neutron flow, which he does so he can fake out the villain by pretending that they've won when they send the duds to the target. Then his past self finds the grenades and re-reverses the polarity, thinking he's the one disarming them. Which means the bombs are live when sent to their target.
* 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 ''{{Series/Neighbours}}'' began, but does spot he's talking nonsense.

* FreakyFuneralForms: In ''Venusian Lullaby'', the Doctor and his companions attend a funeral on Venus, during which the deceased's brain in carved up and shared among the mourners, who eat it. The Venusians can EatBrainForMemories, so this is seen as a way of letting the deceased live on. The Doctor takes it in stride, but his human companions find it off-putting.
