** In "The Seeds of Doom", a character is confused by the Fourth Doctor's appearance, saying he'd expected someone older. This is a reference to how Robert Holmes's original concept for the Fourth Doctor had been an elderly eccentric, but they'd ended up casting an actor who was younger than any of the previous Doctors had been (a controversial decision in the fandom at the time).
** The Gallifreyan writing (inside hexagons) seen in the new series resembles the strange abstract hexagonal design made by Susan, the Doctor's grand-daughter, in an un-aired pilot for ''Series/DoctorWho''.

** "Robot" contains a scene where the recently regenerated Doctor is happy to see his new nose, regarding it as an improvement. Terrance Dicks added this in as a friendly jab at Creator/JonPertwee, who was hugely sensitive about his big nose and refused to be shot from certain angles because of it.
